"The city faces lawsuits from the ACLU and the Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund. City officials have estimated that Fremont's costs of implementing the ordinance -- including legal fees, employee overtime and improved computer software -- would average $1 million a year."

For decades, the well-funded Socialist-founded ACLU has been bullying small towns across America by overwhelming them with high legal costs.

This was the plan all along !!..Arizonia was smart to seek funds from outside of the state to help cover the cost of this tactic.

Why write a law, just follow on with the existing national law and sue the litigators back. They are nothing but romantic sentimental obsessive compulsive bleeding heart that the criminals loves to exploit.

And what about the cost of running our police department in the long run with drugs and violence I read an article wrote in Mrtinsburg West Virginia by a hispanic, He stated that The ilegalls are generally from Mexico down to colombia, they are mostly fugitives of there country, Also drug runners. First it is illegal to be here arent we sending a mesage to them its alright and we wont do anything about it. Then he stated that Mexico won't disourage them working here because them that do work Legal or not send there earnings across the border whih is mst welcome by the Mexican government. America is being used again. I know several illegals and they all are involved in thevery or drugs. If Fremont backs down we lost a war in our city We have already stirred up a hornets nest, get the raid because if we dont fulfil it we sent word to Mexico that we are a vulnerable town.

The ACLU is not for the American citizens. Once we realize this then we can move forward and do something to get this group dismantled.

If we don't, Americans will be made servants to the ACLU, the socialist gov. and any country in which their citizens want to come here and tell us what to do.

Again, ACLU is NOT for the American citizens.

It will be a real shame if this little town isn't able to afford to protect it's citizens from the illegal scourge. The unAmerican Civil Liberties Union MUST GO! Along with all the other pro-illegal jerks.

The initial cost may be there - but has anyone looked at the projected savings? Any lawsuit challenging state or community enforcement of federal law should be thrown out. Courts should refuse to hear them.

I agree with Biker mom, I read where Oama says this is a government matter and not state or city matter, I also believe if the govenment doesnt do it someone must. I am so sick of there jumping ahead of me in a grocery line on welfare paying with food stamps they bought for half price and watch the items on the counter they pa with cash. One woman pulls out at least ten one hundred dollar bills after paying with stamps. I live in Fremont My buissness is taking a dive after seriously hurting my rotator cuff. I pay on time in the hospitol each visit. In physical theopy I watched two illegals tell the secratary they had no money and no insurance. I was taken to court for missing one payment. Last year an Illegal withno insurance hit and killed a man in a motor vehicle. A one hunded dollar fine and released. What the hell was that? There dealing meth and my daughter got involved and hooked. I forbid them nat my house. MS13 graffiti began appearing on silos over the bridge. I wear my gun when I go to the river. My german shepard watches my truck. We as the people need to get together and obolish them in government that do not take action. Our President elect, Is probably worried over the votes of the legal Hispanic Communitie. I feal as though I would if someone walked through my front door uninvited I asked several hispanics if they knew what independance day was all bout and always No. I am ashamed of what this country is becoming. A president who put his left hand over his heart (as did his wife) duingb the national anthem. I am a vetera of the armed forces and this is what I fought for.
