One disgusting aspect of the illegal immigration situation in our country is the way that unscrupulous businessmen profit from a deeply immoral system. Well, here’s a way to fight back.
Thanks to Armand Serio, an anti-illegal immigration activist from Connecticut, there is a website which allows you to report unscrupulous landlords who harbor illegal immigrants (at a big profit, naturally). Pay this website a visit to learn more — Report Landlords.
Serio describes the typical “safe” house — with mattresses laid wall to wall, where illegals sleep in shifts when they are not working. The landlord collects $100 per week in cash from each illegal immigrant using the house, and does not report most of the income. A normal 2-3 bedroom home can hold 15-50 illegals.
Beside the fact that these “scumlords” are putting the health and lives of their illegal tenants at risk, they are violating local housing and fire codes, as well as devaluing properties in the neighborhood. The aliens rely on social welfare programs provided by the US taxpayers, so in effect the taxpayers are subsidizing the landlords’ get-rich scheme.
It’s time for every citizen to be on guard in their own community, and to push back on this practice by reporting illegal activity.
