That is not what the ruling says, it says the city doesn't have the power to make that decision, it is a federal power. At least that is what I took from the article.

I understand that. But the mere fact that it is illegal to be in the country illegally, go figure, should prohibit renting to illegals. Otherwise you are aiding a criminal, are you not?

It's none of their business? :shrug:

I agree with you for the most part. The idea that illegals have Constitutional rights is bizarre at the least.

It is their business. They have a Right to know who they are renting too.

The bottom line is this...as a property owner you don't have to rent to anyone you don't want to and can make up any excuse based on teh facts.
