Supreme Court Declines to Hear Cases Striking Bans on Renting to Illegal Aliens

On Monday, March 3rd, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal of two cases involving challenges to local housing ordinances that prohibited landlords from renting to illegal aliens. Farmers Branch v. Villas at Parkside and Hazleton v. Lozano.   In both cases, the courts of appeal had struck down the rental ordinances, finding them preempted by federal immigration laws.
