SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. - A proposal that would impose sweeping restrictions on the ability of illegal immigrants to live and work in the city will be put before voters after the City Council refused to adopt it. The proposal would prohibit 1. landlords from renting to undocumented people, 2. force day laborers to prove legal residency to work. I thought this was a law already. Am I wrong, and if so, why do people bother to apply for work visa's???? 3. ban taxpayer-funded day-labor centers. Geez this just makes sense. Why would people want their tax dollars going to people in the country working illegally?????? 4. mandate that city business be in English and deny permits to businesses hiring illegal immigrants. I don't have a problem with signs being in Spanish. I've seen numerous signs in English when traveling out of the country and they're a huge help. I thought employers who hired illegals were already supposed to be subjected to fines. So, denying them permits is a great idea. . http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060516/ap_on_re_us/illegal_immigrants_initiative_2 If the senate and the house can't get together on a REAL sollution to the illegal immigrant problem than maybe we should put it to a vote just like California. Then at least we'd know what the people REALLY want and it wouldn't be left up to a bunch of old men who are looking to be re-elected.
