FREMONT, NE — Monday the U.S. Supreme Court left intact a Fremont, Nebraska ordinance that cracks down on illegal immigration, declining to hear an appeal filed by a civil rights group.In 2010 voters in Fremont passed the measure which bans hiring or renting to people who can't prove they're in the country legally. The ordinance also requires businesses to use the federal E-verify software to check on potential employees.An appeals court previously ruled the plaintiffs failed to show the law was intended to discriminate against Latinos or that it intrudes upon federal law.
