State and Local Round-up
- North Carolina: The arrest of a librarian in Alamanc county is drawing criticism. There is speculation that local law enforcement is combing through medical records at the Alamance Health Department in order to crackdown on undocumented immigrants.
- Nebraska: After hours of tense debate, Fremont’s city council votes down and anti-migrant bill. The proposal would have required contractors and employers who got licenses, permits or loans from the city to participate in the E-verify program to electronically verify a job applicant’s immigration status.
- California: California may become the latest of several states to put restrictions on an online system that attempts to verify whether a job applicant can work in the U.S.
