Nebraska town latest in US to fight illegal immigrants
KANSAS CITY, Mo, June 21 (Reuters) – Voters in a small Nebraska town on Monday added to an anti-immigration sentiment sweeping parts of the United States, voting to ban the hiring or renting of property to illegal immigrants.
It looks as though an editor with some sense wrote the ‘illegal immigrants’ headline, and your wildly biased writers wrote the incredible line, “added to an anti-immigration sentiment sweeping parts of the United States”
What’s the support for that statement? There is none, even from the most right-wing sources; it’s illegal immigration that’s the problem, not legal immigration
Several readers objected to our wording here, as they always do when we use anti-immigration as shorthand for opposition to ILLEGAL immigration: GBU Editor
