Correction: BC-US--Nebraska Immigration story

Published:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- In early versions of a Feb. 20 story about a federal judge's ruling on a challenge to an illegal immigration law in Fremont, Neb., The Associated Press erroneously reported most of the law had been rejected by the court. Later versions of the story correctly reflected that while the court rejected part of the law that would have denied housing permits to illegal immigrants, it also upheld other aspects of the law, including a requirement that employers verify the citizenship status of prospective employees.
