Right. American citizens are expected to follow all kinds of zoning laws, many American renters are already given background checks. People here illegally in this country are the only ones who should expect total complete freedom to do whatever they please, whereever they please? The rest of us must obey no trespassing signs, follow housing zoning laws, have background checks?

They are not US citizens. Let us be clear on that.

As far as making people register to be able to rent....it is not a good idea on many levels. Still, Fremont and any other city has the right to place laws that restricts illegal activity in their township, and illegal immigrants are illegal no matter how unpalatable a truth that is for some to hear.
What I don't get -- why can't they just enforce the existing laws -- for example the laws regarding the harboring of illegal aliens?
