[ARCHIVED] Fremont City Council to discuss U.S. District Court ruling next week

The Fremont City Council will discuss next week a ruling from U.S District Court Judge, Laurie Smith Camp, related to Fremont's local immigration ordinance.

The judge upheld the employment portion of the ordinance, requiring that Fremont employers use the federal governments' E-verify system to confirm legal status.

On the question of city issued rental housing licenses, the judge's ruling prohibits the city from revoking licenses based on legal status. The ruling does allow the city to require housing licenses and verify legal residency information.

Fremont City Attorney, Paul Payne, said the city is reviewing the court's opinion. "We'll meet with the members of the City Council next week and advise them of their options," said Payne.

Payne said until the council is consulted, there would be no decisions on implementation. The Council meets next Tuesday, Feb. 28.
