Immigration ordinance hearing set

The Nebraska Supreme Court will hear arguments Jan. 7 on the legality of Fremont’s proposed illegal immigration ordinance.

The hearing is set for 9 a.m. in the State Capitol.

Fremont is appealing a judge’s ruling that he had no legal authority to block a special election on a measure to bar the hiring of illegal immigrants and the renting of property to them.

Under the ordinance, renters would have to prove their citizenship before signing a lease.

The city contends that the ordinance would supersede federal law, including the Fair Housing Act.

The issue has divided Fremont since July 2008, when the ordinance was voted down by the City Council. Mayor Skip Edwards cast the tie-breaking vote.

Fremont residents Jerry Hart, Wanda Kotas and John Wiegert then circulated a petition calling for a special election to consider the ordinance. Petitioners gathered more than 3,300 valid signatures, enough to force a vote.

Saying such an ordinance would cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend in court, the city asked Dodge County District Judge John Samson if the city could legally approve the measure. Samson ruled that the District Court had no authority to prevent the election.

Fremont will be represented by City Attorney Dean Skokan as well as J.L. Spray and Stephen D. Mossman of Lincoln.

The petitioners are represented by Kris W. Kobach, a law professor at the University of Missouri in Kansas City.

Oh come all ye faithful voters!!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 19, 2009

Well, it’s payback time for all the ‘LOONEY’ hispanic groups who supported Obama’s presidential election.  The Lord Obama just announced Obama today at the Esperanza National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast and Conference in Kansas City that he is “committed to a comprehensive immigration overhaul that includes a way that illegal immigrants can become U.S. citizens.”  Oh…yah!!…you betcha…….He also says (laughter here):

  1. U.S. borders must be strengthened to thwart illegal immigration
  • liberal translation: “we’re not going to do a damn thing about it except talk”
  1. illegals must pay a fine and taxes, learn English and “go to the back of the line” of people trying to enter the United States from their home country, and
  • liberal translation: “if you believe this for a moment, your a gullible idiot!…and together with the Obama press core we’ll led you to slaughter like a bunch of sheep”…
  1. employers should not be allowed to exploit illegal immigrants to drive down wages.
  • liberal translation: “we’re not going to piss off the employers and the Chamber of Commerce” and the Mexican government who are benefiting in this scheme so “piss off” you real Americans!”

Definition of Politics

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 11, 2009

Unfortunately, too many of our public representatives have been corrupted by power and greed or have been pleasing the masses instead of upholding the Constitution and our Founders’ vision for America. That is why Gore Vidal once quipped, “Politics is made up of two words: ‘poli,’ which is Greek for ‘many,’ and ‘tics,’ which are bloodsucking insects.”  (see full text of Chuck Norris column)

Proposition 202 In Arizona Fails

Posted by nebraskaobserver on November 5, 2008

On the plus side, relaxing rules on illegal immigration failed in Arizona.

Now if Nebraskans and their gutless politicians would so the same for Nebraska!

PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — By rejecting Proposition 202, Arizonans sent a message that they will not be fooled by special interests into scrapping the state’s best instrument to fight illegal immigration. Arizona ballot initiative Prop 202 has been defeated, thus leaving in place the state’s groundbreaking worksite employment verification laws. Astute voters recognized that Prop 202, deceptively labeled as the Stop Illegal Hiring Act and aggressively promoted by business interests, would have actually increased the hiring of illegal aliens as it dismantled Arizona’s mandatory use of E-Verify.

At the beginning of 2008, Arizona chose to make E-Verify mandatory for all new hires. Managed by the DHS, E-Verify allows employers to use an automated internet-based system to check new hire’s information against more than 500 million records in Social Security and Homeland Security databases. The program is 99.5% accurate and so popular that over 1000 businesses nationwide sign up every week. The defeat of Prop 202 allows Arizona to continue to participate in the nation’s basic worksite employment verification system – a fair, practical and highly effective tool to reduce the incidence of illegal aliens entering the workforce.

“The mandatory use of E-Verify in Arizona is helping break business’s addiction to an illegal-alien, low-wage workforce,” said Dan Stein, President of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). “Their dependence on cheap labor and their fear of losing it led to desperate measures. They fraudulently told the public that Prop 202 would prevent illegal aliens from being hired when it would have done exactly the opposite. These tactics are proof that E-Verify is working as it should and giving Arizona residents the protections they deserve. Arizona voters are to be congratulated for keeping themselves informed.Dand voting responsibly.”

Shades of Fremont!…..local town citizens take up action against influx of Hispanics!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on September 2, 2008


It seems that residents of the community of Goshen, Indiana are “… damn sick and tired of pressing one for English” according to Bob Schrameyer, leader of Citizens for Immigration Law Enforcement, or CILE, recently formed to spur stricter enforcement of immigration law. The continued influx of illegal immigrants and the changes they bring, however, have just been too much to take, especially with the slow-down in U.S. economy and the increasing number of layoffs in the community.

Surprisingly, besides also having an illegal immigration issue, Goshen is a small town with striking similarities to Fremont, Nebraska as shown below.

This Goshen group was formed out of members’ interest in cracking down on undocumented workers and their employers. Here’s some interesting points to ponder according to retired truck leasing firm operator Bob Schrameyer and Goshen City Councilwoman Dixie Robinson.

  1. “They’re not against all immigrants, it’s just the illegal ones ” says Schrameyer.
  2. According to Schrameyer, “there’s nothing wrong with the immigrants coming and filling the jobs, as long as they’re legal.”
  3. Why shouldn’t those opposed to illegal immigration here raise their voice?” says Schrameyer.
  4. “We’ve got the law on our side.” They’re the ones who are here illegally. They’re the ones who broke the law to get here” explains Schrameyer.
  5. We have thousands of people here in Elkhart and St. Joe counties who are unemployed and can’t get work and illegals are working” said Robinson, elected to the Goshen council last year, in part on her stance on the immigration issue.
  6. They want to give foes of illegal immigration a voice. Robinson says “such critics are frequently hesitant about speaking out for fear of being labeled racist.
  7. If you’re illegal, you’re illegal,” said Robinson. “This isn’t anything about being racist, prejudiced.”
  8. Schrameyer sees the undocumented immigrants as “thumbing their nose” at law enforcement, complains they don’t pay their share of income taxes and gripes about other cultural intrusions brought on by their presence. “The community is damn sick and tired of pressing one for English,” he said.
  9. Schrameyer tires of talk of “diversity,” that is, the notion touted by immigrant defenders that the food, customs and other markers of the newcomers’ home countries enhance the local culture.

Group members envision seeking enforcement of existing law that they say is ignored and pushing for new state legislation requiring employers to be more stringent in checking their workers’ migratory status. They’ll also be pressing local candidates for office on their immigration views. ALIPC story eTruth story

It ain’t over till the fat lady sings in Postville!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on August 30, 2008

Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation & State Patrol serve search warrant on Agriprocessors yesterday

The Iowa attorney general’s office had the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation (DCI) along with the Iowa State Patrol serve a search warrant at the Agriprocessors Inc. plant in Postville. This Kosher processing plant was the site of a huge Immigration raid in May.

The plant has been accused of violating child-labor laws and worker-safety regulations. Earlier this month, the state Division of Labor recommended that the Iowa Attorney General’s Office file charges after 57 cases of child labor law violations at the plant were uncovered.

Apparently, no one was hauled off but they were probably searching for records. Of course, no comment from Agriprocessors.

So far, top executives and the plant’s owners have not yet faced any charges in connection with the raid or alleged child labor violations. Two lower-level supervisors recently pleaded guilty to Immigration charges and we are betting that the Feds are getting close to charging the exec’s and/or owners. Remember, it ain’t over till the fat lady sings! see stories DesMoines Register…..Chicago Tribune
