Nebraska. A state heavily impacted by a growing Latino population. We start with a two-part special report on Fremont, where a one of a kind anti-immigration housing ordinance is causing strife among neighbors. We look at the role of immigrant workers on the Nebraska economy, and debut our By the Numbers segment with award-winning journalist Guy Garcia. We meet teens legally allowed to be in the US but blocked from driving by the state, and meet two great heartland characters: an Irish-American woman teaching English to new Latino arrivals and a Nebraska-born Chicano organizer.
