Unlikely American Town Joins Immigration Debate

Cornhusker Crackdown

A small Nebraska town has thrown itself into the immigration debate after 57 percent of voters approved a ban on hiring and renting property to illegal immigrants. 

The law requires officials in Fremont to check the citizenship  of any person renting property while employers must check the status of potential workers.

The American Civil Liberties Union has already promised to file a lawsuit.

Sticky Situation

Gay groups are lashing out at former Arkansas Governor, one-time Republican presidential candidate, and Fox News host Mike Huckabee for his views on gay marriage.

Huckabee told the New Yorker, "We can get into the ick factor, but the fact is two men in a relationship, two women in a relationship, biologically, that doesn't work the same." 

Politico reports that didn't sit well with one gay advocacy group, which said, "Talk about 'ick factor.' One can only guess Governor Huckabee has discovered he gets more press hits every time he says something stupid about gay people." 

Huckabee also joked during the interview that, "The only thing worse than a torrid affair with sweet, sweet Nancy [Pelosi] would be a torrid affair with Helen Thomas. If those were my only options, I'd probably be for same-sex marriage!"

Nothing to Write Home About

And President Obama's effort to help people facing foreclosure is falling flat. 

Some 436,000 homeowners who have enrolled in the $75 billion mortgage modification program have dropped out or been kicked out. That's more than the 340,000 homeowners who have received permanent relief. 

Sixteen months ago, President Obama touted his plan to, "help between 7 and 9 million families -- restructure or refinance -- [to] avoid foreclosure."
