EXPLANATION & OBJECTIVES:
Illegal immigration into Nebraska has increased dramatically since 1990, especially in the Omaha metropolitan area. Nebraska has a higher rate of immigrant-fueled population increase than the median level for America, about 24% of our state population increase. Nebraska is drawing higher numbers of illegal aliens for a number of reasons, such as jobs in the meatpacking industry. However, an increasing number are involved in lucrative drug trafficking and street gangs and are responsible for the higher per capita murder rate in our larger cities. I-80 has become a major drug pipeline across the U.S. Nebraska law officers intercept drug couriers and vans crammed with illegals, overwhelming local jail facilities. Illegals operate many of the methamphetamine labs in our state. Many become attracted by the generous level of welfare payments for which they immediately are eligible. They cause outbreaks of diseases that we eradicated here long ago. Illegal aliens driving without valid licenses are responsible for an inordinate number of vehicle accidents in which innocent parties are killed or maimed. Children of these aliens flood our schools, especially in Omaha, and cost higher taxes to fund bilingual education. There exists danger to our American nationality when illegal immigrants refuse to become assimilated into Nebraska society or learn English, when they consider themselves still of a foreign nationality.
We have a right to expect that people who emigrate to Nebraska will come here lawfully and become assimilated into our Midwestern culture that already has assimilated so many people from foreign nationalities. Taxpaying Nebraskans, employed or unemployed, deserve employment and promotion without competition from non-citizens, the right to deny tax-funded benefits to non-citizens, and the right to live without fear of crime and drug-dealing by non-citizens.
