LINCOLN — Five Nebraska state senators called on the U.S. Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform during a press conference Wednesday at the State Capitol.
The senators voiced support for a non-binding legislative resolution that encourages Nebraska’s congressional delegation to pass legislation similar to the reform bill approved last year by the Senate. That bill calls for improved border security while allowing the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants to remain in the country legally.
