We supported this bill which would prevent landlords from inquiring about the immigration status of their tenants or potential tenants. We noted that this legislation is critical for ensuring that families which include undocumented individuals can maintain housing without fear. This bill would also confront issues of racial profiling by restricting the ability for a landlord to stereotype and inquire after a tenant or potential tenant’s immigration status.
