Requiring landlords to check immigration status of tenants is racist?

Mar 4, 2019 by

by Andrew Tettenborn, Rebel Priest: A lot of people didn’t like the government’s new plans for a “hostile environment” for illegal immigrants: that is, the provisions of law requiring private landlords to verify the immigration status of their tenants or face penalties if they let to those not entitled to be here. You didn’t even need to be left-wing. There is a perfectly plausible Christian case for not turning human beings onto the streets, whatever their status. Furthermore, conservatives...
