FARMERS BRANCH (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - A federal appeals court has once again blocked a Farmers Branch ordinance that bans immigrants who are in the U.S. without legal permission from renting.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld a lower court’s decision Monday.

The court said that the ordinance conflicted with federal law and parts of it were unconstitutional. The opinion relied heavily on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last year that struck down parts of Arizona’s immigration law.

The city’s ordinance would have required all renters to obtain licenses. The building inspector would check an immigrant’s status, and landlords who allowed immigrants without permits would have faced fines or revoked renters’ licenses.

A three-judge panel ruled against the city last March. The full court heard arguments in September.
