The Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to a Fremont, Nebraska city ordinance that bans renting homes to immigrants living in the country illegally.
The justices on Monday let stand an appeals court ruling that found the ordinance doesn’t discriminate against Latinos or interfere with federal immigration laws.
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bart McLeay of Nebraska says Fremont took action because of the failure of the federal government to have an effective immigration policy:
OC…..AND ITS LAWS. :27
The case challenged a 2010 ordinance approved by Fremont voters requiring potential renters to pay a $5 fee for an occupancy license and show proof of being in the country legally.
