Residents of the eastern Nebraska city of Fremont will decide this week whether to ban hiring or renting property to illegal immigrants.

Angered by the poor enforcement of federal laws to prevent illegal immigration that has seen an influx of Hispanic workers to the area, proponents have fought for two years to get the ordinance to the ballot.

If it is approved Monday, the ordinance will subject all renters to checks by city officials and impose fines on employers who don't verify the immigration status of their workers.

Whatever the outcome of the vote, emotions stirred by the issue among the community of 25,000 will not settle quickly.
