Bright Eyes plans concert to fight immigration law

(AP) – 5 hours ago

OMAHA, Neb. — Bright Eyes, Cursive and other Nebraska music acts will perform at a concert to raise money to fight a law that would ban the hiring of or renting to illegal immigrants in the Nebraska city of Fremont.

The Concert for Equality on Saturday in Omaha’s Benson neighborhood will include two simultaneous shows — one outside and the other indoors at the Waiting Room.

Tickets cost $20 to $50, and proceeds from the sold-out concert go to the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska, one of two civil rights groups who have sued the city of Fremont. The groups says the voter-approved ordinance is discriminatory.

The Fremont City Council voted Tuesday to suspend the ban until the lawsuits are settled. It was to take effect on Thursday.

Arizona sheriff: I’ll jail immigration protesters |

In this April 29, 2010 file photo, Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio speaks during a news conference, in Phoenix. Without the benefit of their state’s strict new immigration law, Arizona officers from Maricopa County helped deport more than 26,000 immigrants from the U.S. through a federal-local partnership that has been roundly criticized as fraught with problems.

WASHINGTON — The sheriff of the most populous county in Arizona says he’s “not going to put up with any civil disobedience” when the state’s new immigration law takes effect.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says that if protesters want to block his jail, he’ll put them in it.

The Arizona law, which takes effect Thursday, requires officers enforcing other laws to check a person’s immigration status if they suspect the person is in the country illegally.

Arpaio told ABC’s “Good Morning America” he doesn’t know “what the big hype is.”

He says it’s “a crime to be here illegally and everyone should enforce” the law.

Due to the fact that Sheriff Arpaio makes people wear pink underwear in his infamous ‘tent cities,’ I would like to be signed up and taken in… nothing better than a bunch of sexy activists in pink underwear.  Joe is incredible.. incredibly stupid that is.  He is being investigated right now, and please check out the reasons why:
What  a loser Asshole – Joe -oops, I meant sheriff shithead…
