Task force on illegal immigration forms in Fremont

A task force is forming that aims to address some of Nebraska’s illegal immigration issues. The Fremont-based task force has many local members such as city and county attorneys, police chiefs, prison officials, city council members and residents.The task force was created after the Fremont city council’s defeat a few weeks ago of an ordinance that would’ve banned renting to and hiring illegal immigrants. The group is scheduled to meet within the next ten days. Its recommendations are expected within a few months.
