My thoughts exactly. At least the Omaha paper's article (linked at bottom of Fox article) didn't have those kinds of mistakes.

Then, as soon as we get the next generation indoctrinated, we can make huge progress and start rounding the "illegals" up to be sent to camps...
FYI, occupancy permits are very common for renters in many small and large cities alike.

Needless to say: if a person here legally rents a place; there is little that the authorities could so to chase off illegal immigrant roommates------provided the latter 'flew under the radar' (no more than the maximum number of unrelated people allowed, being quiet, keeping the yard clean, etc)
Sorry, there are no Federal regs against renting to illegals. Even if there were such Federal regs, they would certainly be ignored as are most of the Federal regs re illegal immigration.

Too; with us going into a deep recession, there will be more 'incentive' to clamp down on illegal immigration.
Don't bet the rent on that happening any time soon!

In Pennsylvania, I know personally that Allentown and Bethlehem both require occupancy permits for renters, they have for at least the past 15 years. I'm sure that Philadelphia and Pittsburgh also require occupancy permits for renters as Allentown/Bethlehem are small size cities compared to Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. The occupancy permits are used to keep track of renters in the municipality for taxing and accounting purposes, as renters are transient in nature. This is the same occupancy rules that Mayor Lou Barletta of Hazleton, PA attempted to implement when La Raza and the ACLU forced Hazleton to revoke the immigrant regulations or go broke trying to defend and enforce them.

What is the process? Do renters in the cities you identified have to 'report' to the police? What documents do they need to have to get an occupancy permit?

With all due respect, please knock off the integration type posts, I don't appreciate that type of questioning, thank you. Here is a page link to an [SIZE=4][SIZE=4]
"APPLICATION FOR A RESIDENTIAL OCCUPANCY PERMIT", I hope that this will answer your above questions.

I wonder if anyone has tried to challenge the constitutionality of these permits. I'm sure a very good case could be made.

You mean interrogation, yes?

Anyway, lighten up. You posted something that appears to be something you support. Then you went further to explain that occupancy permits are already required in some places. Is it too much to ask for more information? Or a source for said information such as a link? Thank you BTW. I'll enjoy reading it.

Anyway, the purpose of a forum such as this is to encourage dialog. Questions should be expected, especially for difficult subject matter where there will be multiple, opposing viewpoints. I am not challenging you and/or attempting to change your opinion. I am trying to figure out what is going on. You and I could be on the same side of the issue.

I do not accept everything at face value and I don't expect anyone else to do so either.

Cheers...
