Two civil rights groups filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging a new law in a Dallas suburb that outlaws renting apartments to illegal immigrants, alleging the ordinance violates federal law and forces landlords to act as immigration officers.

Uh, so let me get this straight...

They are suing to allow illegal immigrants to get apartments? :wtf:

Maybe I'm just not progressive enough but this makes zero sense...:rolleyes:

One of the groups is a Mexican-American legal team and the other is an American group which supports the immigrants. What do you expect?

Uh, wouldn't that be aiding and abetting criminals? Is that a misdemeanor or felony? I just can't see why they would force you to do something illegal.

the reason they say they are suing is because landlords will start to discriminate against all hispanic people cuz they wont want to deal with the hassle of checking to see if people are legal...but i dont know about suing over this. but really, there is no simple solution.

I don't think they should be allowed to do anything in our country unless they speak some English. They make things harder for everyone and they make legal Mexicans look bad. But really, I could give a shit less about illegals. As far as im concerned it's a lost cause anyways. It's way to late to do anything. Besides I don't have to worry about any taking my job. Let the liberals get their way. They always do... :rolleyes:

That’s so sick.. Filing suit to protect criminals… This has to be one of the most asinine things I’ve seen in ages.

Alot of our economy depends on illegals. So it doesn't bother me that they're here. On the other hand they do create massive tax drains on the education and health care systems by using those services and then failing to contribute tax money.
