Illegal Aliens Sue to Stop ID Checks

Five nonwhite invader families living in a northern Virginia mobile home community have sued their landlords for “discrimination” after they were asked to prove their legal right to be in the US.

The court case, filed on behalf of the Hispanics by an attorney named Ivy Finkenstadt from the Legal Aid Justice Center, claims that a demand to see legal residence “disproportionately affects Latinos.”

According to a Washington Post report, the request from managing agents A. J. Dowskin and Associates, Inc., to all residents of the mobile home park consisted of asking for either a social security card, a passport, or a valid visa with documentation when signing or renewing their leases.

If successful, the suit could set a national precedent in the private rental market, and prevent private property owners from stopping illegal aliens living on their property—even if it is rented to a legal resident.

According to the complaint, more than a dozen residents of the Waples Mobile Home Park in Fairfax County, “are being forced to move because the park’s managers are refusing to renew their leases if any resident in the household lacks proof of legal status.”

One of those who moved after being unable to fulfil the requirement, Rosy Giron de Reyes, said the landlord said her husband and 5-year-old son could stay but she would have to leave.

“It’s affected me a lot, especially economically,” Giron de Reyes said through a translator Monday outside the federal courthouse in Alexandria, where the lawsuit was filed.

Attorneys for the families are alleging that the requirement for all tenants to have a Social Security card, visa, and related documents or a passport is “discriminatory because it disproportionately affects Latinos.”

“This type of discrimination is all too common, but the law is unfortunately far from clear,” said Finkenstadt. “We are hoping that the federal court in Alexandria will take it one step further and prohibit this practice by a private landlord.”





According to the lawsuit, the park management told residents that the documents they sought were necessary to run criminal background checks.

The landlord also required those households with “undocumented residents” to change from annual leases to month-to-month leases, according to the lawsuit, and imposed a $300 monthly fee in addition to the $765-per-month lot rent.

“They’re kicking out people who have a history of paying bills on time and who have been good tenants,” said lawyer Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg, director of immigrant advocacy for the Legal Aid Justice Center and co-lawyer in the case with Finkenstadt.

“Even if the court ultimately decides the landlord has a right to do this, it’s equally clear the landlord doesn’t have to do this,” Sandoval-Moshenberg added.

A reaction by one reader, “Dis Qusted,” in the Washington Post’s comments section raised the real issues behind the suit:

“Progressive, leftist legal aid group and high profile multi-national law firm combine in an attempt to get a wholly legal process defined as discrimination. Sickening.”

And commentator “MLou Simpson” added this:

“I don’t want to appear totally insensitive, but if they’re illegal immigrants, what gives them the right to sue anybody? Seems to me if they can’t be bothered to get documented and go through the legal process, they have no rights whatsoever.”

  1. More absolute anti American pond life of lawyers, just like the anti British, criminal and immigrant loving, HR lawyer trash that we have in the UK!

    1. Hasn’t anyone noticed the lawyer or ‘lawyer’ is a Jew? (In the ‘Illegal Aliens to Stop ID checks’ piece.) It’s jewish policy to wreck white societies. Where are the Jewish lawyers in Israel making checking DNA illegal? People who are Jew-naive PLEASE check and switch your JADAR on

    2. Now you know why Tony Blair as Prime Minister brought in the Human Rights Act just so that his wife, being a better barrister than him, could earn loads of money and keep them in their capitalist lifestyle, and don’t forget the permanent police presence outside their house in London.

  2. This does not surprise me because there are programmes here in the UK that clearly show it is the non-British born person who finds all ways of twisting rules and regulations regarding anything that, if successful, makes them loads of money. What a lot of people do not know is that they always seem to get legal aid when they are charged with fraud and are defended by one of their own. If anything the word ‘racist’ can be applied more to the non-British born people than us who have worked, paid our taxes and contributed to society, because these people do not integrate, want their own community centres etc., etc.,.

  3. The world`s being turned upside down !
    On the wrong side of the law ? Non white ? Welcome…..you can do no wrong !
    Law- abiding and white ? Push off …you`ve had it mate !
    This is no longer your country.

  4. What a sick country this has become….A jew protecting a bunch of bean eaters here illegally. President Trump, please save us!!!!!!!!!

  5. This is amazing effed up.

    Of course it disproportionately affects Hispanics because there are very few white or black illegals in the US…it is so obvious but WHY oh WHY the f… does it constitute a legal basis for discrimination?

    it is a FACT that the vast majority of illegals (99% plus) are Hispanic because no one from Canada wants to be in the USA and everyone from outside the Americas can’t get in without paperwork and tends to be NON HISPANIC.

    Ye gods..throw this case on the bonfire where it belongs.

  6. Such a wonderful idea! – Just have a ‘free-for-all’ – make your mind up on the way where you want to go and live? Sod the indigenous people who have fought hard to acquire and pay for the services you (ab)use.
    Have you heard the one, where, it is claimed, that soon after an event in the US, the UK followed by Europe quickly catches on……………………….
