Immigrant rights group receives state’s Trail Blazer award

The Fremont group that spent much of 2010 opposing the city's immigration ordinance was rewarded for its efforts at Nebraska's Martin Luther King Celebration at Lincoln's capitol building on Jan. 14. One Fremont One Future was awarded the Dr. Mathew O. Ricketts Trail Blazer award. Named after Nebraska's first black state senator, the award recognizes "those who have made a difference in furthering the rights of others." Fremont's city ordinance penalizing those who hire or rent to undocumented immigrants passed in June, but has not yet taken effect, pending constitutional challenges in federal court.
