A proposed temporary injunction on Fremont’s new controversial anti-illegal immigration ordinance is to be taken up on Wednesday. It’s a court challenge that will be watched with much interest by Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning.
“I’m playing close attention to it, because I think what you’re going to see is many, many cities across this country passing similar ordinances. People are just very frustrated federal government.”
Fremont City Council members now plan on considering suspending implementation of the law during their next meeting. They do say they plan to defend the law in court. The new law that is to go in effect Thursday is being challenged by two civil rights groups.
