    Nebraska (2010)

    Nebraska "2010"

    Bill: LB 1001

    This bill would revoke the current legislation that allows illegal aliens to attend college in Nebraska at the in-state tuition rate. In-state tuition for illegal aliens forces taxpayers to pay to replace their own children in the limited seats in college while rewarding and encouraging more illegal immigration.

    Letter written by William Gheen...
    January 21, 2010

    Senator ______:

    I remember when word first reached us that Nebraska became the first state in the last five years to pass a bill giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens!

    What a shock since there had been hardly any public notice or debate. The bill was slipped by us and we could have stopped it as we have done in over 20 states in the last five years, since approximately 80% of Americans oppose the damnable legislation.

    We are very happy to see that the Nebraska Senate is taking steps to quickly rectify this grave injustice against the innocent taxpayers in your state.

    On behalf of the over 30,000 national supporters of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), we implore you to actively support, vote for, and pass into law Senator Charlie Janssen's LB 1001.

    This bill would bring Nebraska in line with the 40 other states and the 80% of Americans found in numerous polls who have rejected in-state tuition for illegals.

    With the exception of Wisconsin, the other ten states that have this measure voted it in without adequate public knowledge or debate. These stealth legislation techniques were used to bypass the will of the electorate and subvert the processes essential to a healthy Republic.

    In-state tuition for illegal aliens is failing in most states because it is a violation of Federal law, even though the Executive Branch continues to abandon Constitutional governance by failing to enforce most laws that protect American citizens and our borders at this time.

    The measure replaces innocent American students in the limited seats in our colleges at taxpayer expense! Just imagine generations of Nebraska taxpayers paying blood, sweat, tears, and taxes to build and maintain those institutions only to find their own children and grand children denied a seat, because their money has placed an illegal alien in those filled classrooms.

    The measure also sends the wrong message to existing illegal aliens and future illegal aliens. Spanish newspapers throughout Central and South America advertise which states offer "immigrants" the most taxpayer goodies.

    And let me address that word... "immigrants". ALIPAC is blessed to have the support of Americans of every race and political party representing every state and walk of life in America. One group we are especially proud of is our LEGAL immigrant supporters who are sick and tired of the noble title of "immigrant" being applied to illegal aliens who sneak into our nation under cover of darkness or violate their oaths to our government to depart.

    Most LEGAL immigrants are spitting mad about illegal immigration and resent their law-abiding and honorable decisions to immigrate to America being compared with massive and destructive lawlessness.

    Our group is launching an intensive public education campaign to notify as many Nebraska citizens as possible about LB 1001. From our experiences across the nation, we know the vast majority of your constituents will support LB 1001, when they learn of it through the media, talk radio shows, and possibly paid commercials or robotic calls.

    Please stand with Nebraskans and not illegal aliens and their supporters. Please support and pass LB 1001.

    Sincerely,


    William Gheen

    PS: It is highly likely you will soon receive some kind of false information from the illegal aliens and their supporters attempting to malign my character and the character of my organization, ALIPAC. Please disregard their "attack the messenger" routine, as most other lawmakers around the nation have, in response to their traditional underhanded tactics. Their refusal to engage us on the issues and over reliance on smear campaigns has proven to be a losing strategy for their side. Please feel free to contact me directly should you receive any fraudulent information designed to try to persuade you against listening to voices of reason on LB 1001. ALIPAC is a multi-ethnic non-partisan organization that works extensively with black and Hispanic leaders and activists to pursue peaceful and civic measures opposed to illegal immigration.

    UNL Student Accuses Regents Of Tuition Discrimination

    Questions why illegal immigrants given break and not him
    A University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate student has called on the Board of Regents to ease tuition requirements for some out-of-state students.

    Email Address: sixonline@wowt.com


    A University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate student has called on the Board of Regents to ease tuition requirements for some out-of-state students.

    Troy Weigand cited a Nebraska law granting in-state tuition to some illegal immigrants when he spoke Friday at the board's meeting. He said he moved to Nebraska four years ago, but is classified as an out-of-state student and pays higher tuition.

    Under UNL policy, students who move to Nebraska to attend school must pay out-of-state rates.

    Weigand, who's studying chemistry, said he owns a house in the state and pays taxes, so he shouldn't pay more tuition. He suggested the university is being discriminatory by giving illegal immigrants a break and not him.

    "What are you willing to do to correct this discrimination against legal residents?" he asked the regents.

    Chancellor Harvey Perlman said Weigand's tuition issue has nothing to do with illegal immigrants. Nebraska President J.B. Milliken agreed, and added that the tuition break for illegal immigrants is provided by state law. So the university has to comply.

    The law passed in 2006 applies to children brought to the United States illegally. They must have graduated from Nebraska high schools, lived in the state for at least three years and be pursuing legal status.

    A measure now before the state Legislature would repeal the law.

    Milliken and other education leaders have sent a letter to lawmakers supporting the law. They say repealing it would deny children economic, intellectual and social benefits that serve both them and the state.

    Arizona-style immigrant bill planned
    Sen. Charlie Janssen
    LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ The uproar over a new, immigration-related law in Arizona could resound in Nebraska next year. State Sen. Charlie Janssen of Fremont says he plans to introduce a similar bill in the Nebraska Legislature the next session, which begins in January. Arizona's bill requires police enforcing another law to verify a person's immigration status if there's ``reasonable'' suspicion the person is in the U.S. illegally. Supporters say it's a fair way to curb illegal immigration, while opponents say it will cause racial profiling. Janssen has already drafted a Nebraska bill, but he says it could be changed based on experiences Arizona has with its new law. He says crafting such a law so it can be enforced without racial profiling is one of the biggest hurdles.

    Sen. Charlie Janssen

    District 15

    May 19th, 2010

    Because the issue of illegal immigration continues to have a direct impact on my district, our state and this nation, I feel obliged to take a leadership role on this issue and have directed legislative staff to research the Arizona illegal immigration bill recently passed into law. As part of that research process we have drafted a bill in Nebraska that mirrors the Arizona law. The drafting of a bill in no way guarantees that I will sponsor such a bill or that it will be filed when the Legislature reconvenes next January.

    Over the 2010 interim, I have sponsored three interim study resolutions (LRs 520, 521, 522) to examine the impact of illegal immigration on the state of Nebraska. LR 520 asks the Appropriations Committee to examine the effects of illegal immigration on the state budget. LR 521 asks the Education Committee to examine whether the state should repeal provisions providing in-state tuition rates at our public postsecondary institutions for persons not lawfully present in the United States. LR 522 asks the Judiciary Committee to examine the legality of the state of Nebraska knowingly offering state benefits to illegal immigrants with a focus on the committee’s follow-up work on their own interim study in 2008 (LR 362) examining our benefits policies regarding illegal immigrants.

    The information gathered from those hearings, feedback from my constituents, and careful monitoring of Arizona and other states will play a large part in determining what type of bill I would ultimately draft and introduce to the Nebraska Legislature, and no decisions will be made until this discovery process is complete. That said, the problem of illegal immigration is an urgent one that must be addressed in our next session, and I intend to support, and if necessary, lead the fight for reform.
