leasing to immagrants with passports

There was a time when the building industry was booming here in Los Angeles and illegal immigrants were needed 7 days a week. So in my "C" and "D" grade areas I accepted anyone who passed a criminal background check, had proven employment and didn't mind paying a larger deposit to cover two months rent.

Then when the building industry dried up, I had 30 to 50 eviction a year in those areas, until I could rent to a better working class with proven credit history and legal employment.

Is there a question?

A legal foreign visitors will have a current passport and visa, and a social security number - a legitimate reason to be here.

Those who cannot produce these documents need to find housing elsewhere. This person clearly has no problem lying Big-time, and that's not my kind of tenant.

A passport? With a legitimate visa to stay in the USA? I'd screen like anyone else. Usually if they are legally admitted they have a job that can be verified and a tax number that should run just like a socials security number when you check on them.

That's different than a LAPR (legally admitted permanent resident) identified with a green card, but still, if they are in the country legally, you can check on them.

Myself, I don't rent to undocumented aliens. Which might or might not be different than what you are asking about.

john v,

AS I UNDERSTAND we LLs are NOT allowed to discriminate (not rent to) based on nationality or citizenship.

OUR duty is to allow them to apply, receive their application, and screen them the same as any other local person - income, evictions, criminal, etc.

I have a group of people from our southern neighbors who are authorized to work in the United States. They started off being able to work for three months, then having to leave for nine. Then they worked their way up to being authorized to be here for six months, and then leave for six months. Now, they're currently able to be here for nine months, and have to leave for three.

In a little bit, they'll hopefully be authorized to be here year-round. I like them; they pay on time; they leave the house cleaner than a lot of other people I can think of; they work hard. They're in agriculture during their off-months.

They each have a social security card that has been stamped "Valid for Work Only With DHS Authorization". And they have a DL from their home state. The one who didn't have a DL had a passport instead.
