NET Radio hosts Feb. 24 discussion in illegal immigration


Nebraska lawmakers may soon consider LB48, a bill styled after the Arizona legislation that requires law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of people they stop, if the officer has reason to believe that they are in the country illegally.

The proposed legislation is generating controversy, and NET Radio will give listeners the opportunity to voice their opinions during the hour-long, live call-in program "Nebraska's Talking: Illegal Immigration," airing Thursday, Feb. 24, at 6:30 p.m. CT.

NET News reporter Fred Knapp will moderate discussion between program guests Sen. Charlie Janssen, District 15 (Fremont) who introduced the legislation, and Sen. Danielle Conrad, District 46 (Lincoln) who opposes Janssen's bill.

Listeners may call in questions during the program to 1-800-290-6850, e-mail them to or visit the NET News Facebook page.
