Neb. AG refuses to sue for immigrants’ fair housing rights

The Associated Press – May 1, 2008

AP reporter gives a good account on how all of this started and how it is playing out.  Angry Anne Hobbs of the NEOC and angry “open-border” enthusiasts piling on the AG.  However, it really ticks me off when reporters say, for example, “Immigration advocates say” instead of giving names. Oh!…by the way, why doesn’t any reporters ask John Q. Citizen what they think about it or an anti-illegal immigration group here in the state, what they think?  Or better yet, a taxpayer!

“Bruning said, I’m not going to use taxpayer dollars to file lawsuits for illegal aliens,”  after learning the couple was in the U.S. illegally. “You’re not going to get a free lawyer from his officeif you’re not a citizen of this country.”  Go Jon Go!……..story

    John Bruning is a wuss. After accusing a gas station operator in western Nebraska of price gouging several months ago, he has the audacity to set foot in the very same station. He seemed surprised that they weren’t happy to see him. And rather stay and defend himself, he ran to his car like a little girl and let some his flunkies do it for him. Their defense included yelling and profane, vulgar language. Classy. An aside – what was the Attorney General doing on a golf outing in North Platte on a Tuesday? Seems like the civil servant is not living up to his job description.

    Mr. Bruning supports price gouging in Lincoln, why would he care what they do in North Platte? Check the gouge stations along north 70th street, havelock to adams street. When oil trades $2 higher they go up 10 cents a gallon, $4 equals 20 cents a gallon. But if oil trades $5 a barrel less, it drops 2 cents. Go figure! They’ve been doing it that way for a year now. Yet John continues to look the other way. Maybe they’re padding his pocket book?
