what you should do, is call your local housing authority and tell them you believe a landlord is violating the law that allows certain amount of tenants per sq. foot or room.

call the city council.

call the police warm line.

but dont waste ICE's time buddy.

If the street or area is not zoned for buiness or zoned RC, it's no halfway house and laws are being violated.

yes exactly. there are restrictions per room or sq feet of a home or apt.

my point is that just because a group of people 10 to a house does not mean they are illegal immigrants.

just because you see a bunch of people sharing a house is no reason to call ICE.

you would instead call the housing authority.

did you read my post?
