Neb. city to appeal immigration ordinance ruling
Neb. city to appeal federal ruling that struck down part of city's immigration ordinance
By The Associated Press

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) ' City officials in Fremont, Neb., say they will appeal a judge's ruling that overturned part of their controversial immigration ordinance.

The city council voted unanimously Tuesday night to challenge the decision.

Fremont Mayor Scott Getzschman says the city also plans to start enforcing a requirement that employers use the E-Verify system to screen for illegal immigrants.

U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp last week overturned part of the law that would have banned the harboring of illegal immigrants. But she let stand another part requires potential renters to prove their citizenship or legal status.

The ACLU of Nebraska has announced plans to appeal the portion of the ruling that was upheld. The group filed the federal lawsuit on behalf of five renters, two landlords and two businesses in Fremont.
