Again, reading is fundamental. If you wish to read up on slavery, etc. I'm sure there are lots of articles on the internet. Use your search engine. I already answered your question.

Back O/T, Liberian immigrants . . . .

At least an immigrant is involved in this one.
How was Jdubs take on the story negative? As she said its tragic and if the landlord violate zoning laws they should be charged for it.
As to another question posted. Why should a business owner be responsible for who they employ? Because the law says they can only employ legal citizens. ie green card holders, folks with working visa's or American citizens. That's why.
Why should land lords be held accountable for knowingly renting to an illegal? Because it can be argued that they are harboring and abetting a criminal.

I didn't say her take on it was negative, I said the story was. As in opposed to a positive story involving immigrants.

Anti start a thread. Positive stories regarding immigration. I'll support it and add a few of my own. Rock with it. Most of us have something to contribute.

Keep in mind that you are conversing with a party who has no problem with people being in this country illegally. In fact, many of those who post on this board are illegals, and thus will find any reason in the world to support all things illegal.

In addition to their ignorance and ignoring our laws, more likely than not they are also clueless about our rental codes and standards in the US. Remember these are people who think it's okay for 50 people to live in a 2 bedroom house.

If you can't tell, I'm a more assimilated illegal, and only rent with 15 people in 3 bedroom house.
