The Nebraska Legislature is on the brink of passing Legislative Bill 947 (LB 947) to make illegal aliens who have been granted deferred action under President Obama’s DACA program eligible to receive professional or commercial licenses in Nebraska. LB 947 has already successfully passed the Legislature’s first two rounds of voting and is just now awaiting a third and final vote before being sent to Governor Ricketts.
Nebraska already doles out driver’s licenses to DACA recipients and in-state tuition to illegal aliens. Please take a few minutes to call your state Senator and tell him or her that you have had enough of handing out benefits to illegal aliens. There is no time to waste. Only with your help can we stop LB 947!
Let YOUR senator know:
- Granting professional licenses to illegal aliens who have received deferred action hurts American workers by increasing competition for scarce jobs.
- Deferred action is a temporary deferment of deportation and does not confer any lawful immigration status to an alien.
- States should not expand resources to provide public benefits, including professional licenses, to those illegally in the country.
Please act now! Call or email your state Senator and urge them to oppose LB 947!
