Mixed Ruling on Nebraska Immigration Ordinance

On February 20, 2012, a judge of the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska invalidated part of Fremont, Nebraska’s immigration ordinance.  Like the well-known ordinance from Hazleton, Pa., the Fremont ordinance imposed both employment and residence restrictions.  For more on the ordinance and the decision, check out this story from the Fremont newspaper. The decision brings to mind Cristina Rodríguez’s article on the topic from 2008.
