Nebraskans Oppose an Arizona-Style Law, Support Common-Sense Federal Reform

Nearly 500 Nebraskans came to the state Capitol on Thursday, 01/27/2011, to say that Nebraska values do not support an Arizona-style law in this state. Participants and speakers from around the state, representing the League of Nebraska Municipalities, the Methodist Bishop, Catholics, Lutherans, Presbyterians, United Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, other faith groups, veterans, the NAACP-Lincoln, the Anti-Defamation League, students, the Winnebago Tribe, and many others described the problems and high costs an Arizona-style law would create for Nebraska’s budget and communities.

Watch two of the day’s speakers: Mike Nolan of the Nebraska League of Municipalities & Rev. David Lux of St. Paul United Methodist Church

Participants delivered more than 6,000 postcards from other Nebraskans opposed to Arizona-style policies and for common-sense federal immigration reform.
