Immigrant Legal Center Bills for Support 107th Legislature

Date

Immigrant Legal Center is excited to extend our support to the following bills empowering all Nebraskans to work with confidence.

LB 298

Introduced by: Sen. Mike McDonnell

Summary: Legislature Bill 298 would change Nebraska code by adding language from federal law that establishes that states can provide unemployment insurance access to individuals like DACA-recipients, who do not fall under the category of “qualified alien,” by simply declaring their inclusion. Under LB 298, immigrants would have to prove they were authorized to work when they earned the unemployment benefits and when they collected them.
