IMMIGRATION

The Nebraska Republican Party recognizes that our country is enriched with the vast influence of immigrants from all over the world who have come to the United States for the unlimited opportunities, freedom, and prosperity offered to every working citizen.

 

We support, welcome, and encourage the assimilation of all legal immigrants and others who are here pursuant to due process and are productive, law-abiding citizens. In fairness to them, we support stringent federal efforts to stem the tide of illegal immigration.

 

We oppose providing taxpayer-funded benefits to those who have broken our immigration laws, such as taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition for illegal immigrants and encourage the Legislature to repeal such laws.

 

We oppose sanctuary status for cities or other government entities and call on federal and state officials to collaborate on the enforcement of existing immigration laws.
