LANDLORDS ARRESTED FOR RENTING TO UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANTS

Rate this Entry

Are we in America? ICE is now prosecuting people who rent apartments to unauthorized immigrants. A landlord in Lexington, Kentucky is being prosecuted on federal alien harboring charges for renting apartments to unauthorized immigrants. This is not what the harboring laws were intended for. Are we going to start arresting Greyhound executives for allowing unauthorized immigrants to ride their buses. After all, we have laws barring people from transporting unauthorized immigrants.

    Yes, as a matter of fact we are. Here in my state we are currently arranging to seize the homes of employers who have have illegal alien employees. These actions are being undertraken the same as Drug Dealers. They have received these goods ie homes as an "Ill Gotten Gains" . Same as drug dealing being an illegal activity, the employment of illegals is also an illegal activity that causes a gain.

    This is just a start. We will be looking at the CEO's and then we are going after the lending institutions ie banks etc.

    They may be listed as accomplices and their assets seized also.

    We are going after anyone in the food chain.

    So let's see:

    According to www.reuters.com, there are "an estimated 11 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants" in the United States as of March 3rd, 2008.

    Given the proverbial "six degrees of separation", social networking, commercial interactions (with shop keepers, etc), and people they meet on the street...

    Well, I'm sure every US citizen is part of the "food chain" in some way. :3

    Hahahaaha... wouldn't that be hilarious. Let's close all businesses that deal with illegal immigrants... let's close all businesses... oops. When God said "let there be idiots" the ultra conservative republicans popped up their heads and cried in unison.

    Redneck racist Republicans such as Sessions, Vitter and DeMint will do anything to undermine the economy. Let them! Let us elect the Democrats after we loose half a million jobs this year and Prince William County becomes bankrupt after the homeowners are unable to pay the new taxes they were levied by the racist bigot Corey Stewart.

    Great, does that mean the food chain includes the GOP party members eating lunch at the country club entertaining each other with anti-Hispanic anti-immigrant rants, while being attended to by illegal Hispanic dining room staff and watching out the window as the Mexicans groom the greens?

    Thanks George. I know that the Republican candidate tried to make immigration a wedge issue and failed. This was a district that was considered a safe Republican seat so it would be nice if the results transmitted the message that an anti-immigration message is not what voters want to hear.

    "I know that the Republican candidate tried to make immigration a wedge issue and failed. This was a district that was considered a safe Republican seat so it would be nice if the results transmitted the message that an anti-immigration message is not what voters want to hear."

    In the last few years I have come to the decision that I won't support the candidate of any party that indulges in hate mongering (be it based on ethnic origin, gender, religion, race, sexual orientation or immigration status; and the Pubs are 6 for 6 on this criteria) even if I agree with them on everything else. I would hope that others would come to the same decision.

    It is really a shame because I agree more with the Pubs than the Demos on economic matter. Back in 2000 I was leaning towards voting for Junior and cconsider myself lucky that I was in Europe at the time of the Election and thus don't have to kick myself from having voted for the wrong candidate.

    As if the economy was not already in enough trouble, we need Immigrants to abandon their homes adding to foreclosures, apartment complexes running higher vacancy rates and closing businesses to put more people out of work. Are we really signing up for that???

    So, if some wealthy European or Asian visitor overstays his I-94 while staying at the Four Seasons, will they arrest the hotel manager or go after the copmany executives in Toronto?
