Barry just give up already its sad when I read these post and its 20 people against Barry even my "clueless" behind would get the picture. You provide no facts. If I have to get a permit because law enforcement is cracking down on illegals then it wouldn't be a hassle at all more like a pleasure

twenty people?
look, think about it. in order to rent a home/house they want you to go a get a permit from the town gov. what will be next? to rent a car? to buy a car? to buy groceries? since when doe we have to get permission from the gov to simply purchase anything that would be considered normal safe living necessities?

you think that once that door is open they won't come up with some other not so bad, good for everyone else excuse to limit your life? this sounds like the biigginig of nazi germany and soviet russia.

never waste a good crisis.

Actually there's nothing wrong with knowing who's really renting and who they are. Americans have to pay a minimum $25.00 fee to a prospective landlord for a credit check. You know......something illegals don't have?

you are right. the difference is that i as a landlord am not required to require a credit check and the tenant is free to decline and look somewhere else. i am free to rent to whomever i want. the risk is all mine.

what is inherently wrong with this is that big brother government will require you and your family to obtain a permit to rent that is to live in their community before you can even look for a place to rent. you need permission to live in their community. what will be next, a permit required to buy a car, a permit to buy food? it is not a new concept and it will be tried again.

never waist a good crisis.

Correct

10k fine for hiring, renting to or aiding and abetting in any manor

100k second time

Million for the third and loss of property

you need a permit to rent a house? are they next going to require a permit to buy a house? be careful what you wish for.
will you need a permit to eat at a dinner or shop at wal-mart?

wait till they deny a permit to someone they think is illegal and then find out that they aren't or worse yet are actually a citizen. the first mistake will bring a lawsuit that they won't win and just might not have the money to pay for.

<quoted text>well i don't know. even you now have to get permission from the gov to work at certain jobs and here in al it is most jobs. since when did we need permission from the gov to work?
now to answer your question, how would a landlord or a local gov really know that someone was illegal? you're the one who introduced the term race. you're the one trying to drag the conversation in that direction.
It would be very easy by establishing a national data base

<quoted text>but there is no law that requires the business person to require that. however that is not the issue how about the next time you want to rent a car you have to go down town and get a permit before you go to the dealer and rent a car. that is not the America i want to live in.

it is not about showing id or passing the scrutiny of a credit check, it is about getting gov approval to do what most people would think is a freedom that our forefathers fought for
IT is called ID..........LOL

an id is a lot different than petitioning for permission to buy something or to go somewhere. you may have the id but when you give them the power to deny you permission that is different.

sounds good until you mistakenly deny a not so illegal alien the right to rent or work and he successfully sues you for all you have. how would you as a citizen possibly tell with 100% accuracy who is legal and who is not?

When has enforcing immigration laws become against the Constitution?

Aiding, abetting or encouraging an illegal alien to stay in this country is a violation of federal law.

the problem is not id. we are talking about this little detail from the news article posted;

"The ordinance, which replaced an earlier 2006 version, would require all renters to obtain a $5 city license and fill out an application that asks about their legal status."
