Farmers Branch Illegal Immigrant Housing Ban Still Barred

FARMERS BRANCH (1080 KRLD) – A federal appeals court has upheld a lower court ruling stopping Farmers Branch’s ban on illegal immigrants seeking housing.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the ordinance passed by the city overstepped its authority.

The 2008 law called on the city’s building inspector to check the immigration status of anyone wanting to rent an apartment who wasn’t a U.S. citizen.

Illegal immigrants could be barred from rental housing, and landlords who knowingly allowed them to stay could have their rental licenses barred.

A federal judge barred Farmers Branch from enforcing the law. 

Farmers Branch mayor Bill Glancy – who was not sitting mayor when the city encated the law –– told KRLD after the ruling that he hasn’t decided whether to push for an appeal.

He does, however, support the law.

It’s to “try to get people into the citizenship process in this country so that they can fully participate in the American opportunity,” he said. “I never heard anyone say they came here for a handout, I hear that they came here for an opportunity.”

    Criminals have over-run this country and there no longer is any law or justice for those who obey the law.

    Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, White countries for everyone????????

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into White countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY White countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the White race, Liberals and respectable conservatives will just say that I’m a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.
