LINCOLN An association representing cities and towns across Nebraska has made another contribution for a total of $25,000 to fight the proposed illegal immigration ordinance on the ballot Monday in Fremont.

Becoming a VERY heated issue in the days running up to the June 21 special election.
Good. Hopefully it gets so heated you toss the scumbag mayors out of work
Both Omaha and Lincoln have liberal Democrat Mayors.
If not they are stealing tax money to donate.
Oh I get it, criminals supporting crime.
America is no longer a nation of laws. Everywhere you turn these days there are activists, including public officials that only want to enforce the laws they like. The rest of us can just go to he$$.
It’s hard to fathom how disconnected the politician are from the people!!
Since when do elected people fight the electorate?
We need some serious ass kicking of these arrogant little dictators and show them who’s boss!
More elitists of the ruling oligarchy committing acts of war upon those the should be serving.
Fremont, Nebraska...my hometown. Looks a lot different from when I left there 15 years ago....
Send all the illegals to them, then.
..unfortunately ... a familiar story!
Hooray for slave labor!
Well hey it does happen sometimes here in Nebraska. We have had this big frog in a little puddle for mayor and nobody ran against him. Finally enough people got fed up, three ran against him in our last Primary. He came out so poorly when the votes were counted.
Actually at one point a few years ago he by the skin of his teeth avoided getting bounced in a recall election. It was really interesting how he shut his mouth immediately after that, rather than always blowing about this and that and everything.
Once in awhile good things happen.
Most politicians in all U.S. cities are leftists, including most from within the GOP. If and when conservatism really takes over the cities, then leftist politics will really take a severe nosedive.
Do you have the RECALL option?

They need to change their name to reflect their new reality; The League of Mexican Municipalities in Nebraska.
Any self-respecting city in Nebraska would remove themselves from membership in the League immediately.
the FREMONT Rule would ATTACK “Landlords/Slumlords” as well as Bosses.
Fremont is a Town, verging on City-hold. Towns don’t have slums. Slumlords can create Slums,in Fremont-sized towns.
I want to see this PLAN pass.
I want to see how the Omaha & Lincoln Mayors scramble to keep their constituents from noticing the former Fremont Slumlords , as they invade.
Left there 25 years ago.
My hometown, too. Great town, middle America. They are just trying to keep it that way.
WHY are our city and national “leaders” all so pro-wetback? WHY are they for giving the Southwest to Mexico?
Since when do elected people fight the electorate?,when ACORN oops an association owns you see Obama.
Hormel would loose most of their work force if this passes. Not to mention what would happen if the idea spread.
Money talks, bs walks. Even if it passes, the rumors are it will not be enforced.
We must be the same age. I have family still in Dodge county, and things are a lot different.
One friend was complaining about the Latin King gang signs painted on the north side of the mall.
another example of elected officials oppressing their voters.
Since the time the electorate no longer had any understanding of the Constitution, the Bible, or where food comes from. Populations gather in cities and work for the government, which gives them things. They then vote for the gravy train.
Is it simpler than we think? That these Mayors, like L.A.’s Villaregosa, are merely on the payroll of the Mexican drug cartel? These laws are bad for their business. Follow the pesos.
Without ‘rule of law’, you have no civil society. We’re now subjected to man who rules on whims.
Most likely, these Mayors have big Agriculture contributors to serve.
Big ag is big business in Nebraska.
The way I hear it, one of the leaders against the ordinance IS a slumlord. Grand Island, Columbus and other small cities around Nebraska are waiting to see what happens in Fremont. State Senator Charlie Janssen is preparing to potentially introduce similar legislation at the state level.
Exactly. People need to realize that if we lose to the lawlessness, this nation cannot survive. Every law is offensive to the people who want to break it. If we truly buy into the post-modern idea that everybody makes their own truth and morality and there can’t be any enforced laws, the nation will be utterly destroyed by its own mental illness.
Mayor’s fighting the people of their cities.
Not directed at the 1st post, just a general post on the topic.
I went to the DMV the other day, hadn’t been there in a decade (that makes me feel old), and several things caught my attention.
Let me preface by saying I live in a Chicago suburb.
First, the DMV has now been transformed into a Jesse White campaign office. I mean, this guys name was on everything (he’s our secretary of state). Every sign, every piece of paper. I was suprised he didn’t have the pencils engraved with his name. IMO, this is all political advertising to get name recognition, and it should not be allowed.
Secondly, they asked me if I wanted to sign up for “motor voter” registration. I said, sure, why not. They asked what party. I told them “independent”. I was told that was not a choice, either democrat or republican, or I could have them send me a form to fill out at home. “OK” I said, “send the form”. I had to answer 2 questions to get the form. 1) Are you a U.S. citizen and 2) Do you reside in Illinois.
I asked the heavy set, slow as cold molasses woman with cornrows and $300 dollar Gucci sunglasses who was serving me.... “All I do is mark the boxes? How do you know I’m a citizen?” She replied “cuz you marked the boxes.....”
The Third thing that caught my attention was how much the office was in spanish. I felt like I was south of the border. It was 50/50, the postings. Half English / Half Spanish. The books, pamphlets, postings, everything.
It then dawned on me. There is no verification here in Illinois of your citizenship to vote. And thats what the dems are banking on. The black vote is no longer large enough to keep them in office, this all boils down to illegal votes. They are losing white votes, so its all black and hispanic. But I see no one mention this.
Never, I never see that 3rd rail being touched. I hear Beck and Limbaugh mention they want the hispanic vote, but, I’ve never seen anyone touch the 3rd rail mentioning that these folks are relying on the ILLEGAL vote to win.
Maybe I’m slow on the uptake, and had a bit more faith that republicans were not allowing this sort of thing to go on, but after my DMV visit, my eyes have opened, and I see clearly that this must be part of gerrymandering and district splitting or just plain bastardized deal making for them to allow this to happen.
I have truly lost all faith in both parties.
Pssss, illegals...Inundate Nebraska. They want AZ’s problems.
You are not alone.
The GOP is powerless in Illinois and can’t stop squat.
Omaha and Lincoln are impossible. NE needs Carl Curtis and Roman Hruska back, but they are dead!
You are so right, and that is true in TX too. It’s the federal funds they crave.
They’ll come back to us again, they’re not exactly San Francisco or St. Louis.
That is a friggin' beauty!
Fellow Nebraska native - just a little to the west of Fremont but same values and concerns. Nebraskans are fair people, sons and daughters of immigrants who love their own ethnic heritage (you know nearby communities like Schuyler and Clarkson that have strong German, Czech, and Polish histories) but they are Americans first. Legal immigrants will be welcomed as neighbors. Illegals, well what is hard to understand about “illegal”?
Omaha and Lincoln have always been “a whole nuther country”. The small cities and towns of Nebraska should follow Fremont’s lead. Be the state that stands up for tradition and forces this issue onto the national agenda. Just let the beltline bandits try to convince people out here in Flyover Country that illegals deserve the same rights and services!
2. They depend on the votes of those same to keep it that way.
