A majority of Nebraska lawmakers say they favor tougher immigration laws according to a pre-session survey conducted by the Associated Press.
The majority of state lawmakers said they support legislation that would require businesses to use the Department of Homeland Security's internet-based workplace verification tool - E-Verify. Only one said they would not support such a measure and 14 said they were unsure.
Twenty-six state senators would also support measures that prohibit illegal aliens from receiving tax-supported benefits as well as in-state tuition for children that are brought into the country illegally.
