The fundamental constitutional protections of due process and equal protection embodied in our Constitution and Bill of Rights apply to every person, regardless of immigration status.
Using targeted impact litigation, advocacy, and public outreach, the ACLU protects the rights and liberties of immigrants. From fighting back against discriminatory housing and "show me your papers" policies, to empowering young immigrants to gain drivers licenses and educational opportunities, to seeking justice for immigrants targeted or abused in the hands of law enforcement, the ACLU works in courts and communities around Nebraska in addition to fighting in the Nebraska Legislature.
Combining our national expertise in immigration policy with boots-on-the-ground understanding of the unique Nebraska landscape, the ACLU fights discriminatory policies in Nebraska and ensures everyone is treated like a neighbor.
