I would like to change directions here for a minute and run something up the flag pole...ok?
It seems there are approximately 600 cities in the US that have drafted a city ordinance where it is prohibited to rent or lease property to illegal aliens. Any property owner or renter/tenant/lessee in control of property, who knowingly allows illegal aliens to use, rent or lease their property shall be in violation of the law, and be fined serverly. The ordinance goes on to say that any for-profit enity, including acts committed by its parent company or subsidiaries, that aids and abets illegal aliens or illegal immigration shall be denied approval of a BUSINESS PERMIT, THE RENEWAL OF BUSINES PERMIT city contracts or grants for a period of not less than five years from its last offense.
At the same time there is also an ordinance declaring English as the official language of the "city".
The number of complaints I get from residents on overcrowding in single family detached home with up to 15/18 adults and many children are to getting completely out of hand. One neighbor has 11 cars being parked at one house. My question to Bubba, Tony, Garibaldi, GS and who everels would like to jump in, is what do you thinki of this kind of ordinance? Pros and Cons?
