It comes as no surprise that threats of ICE arrests and fear of immigration officials have exponentially been on the rise since the election. What is surprising is the way some families are being targeted in their own homes by their landlords.
Very bad landlords!
According to Citylab, “some landlords are now threatening to report undocumented tenants or mixed-status households to ICE in order to raise their rents. Or to evict tenants seen as undesirable, in the hopes of drawing a more affluent renter class in gentrifying neighborhoods.” As if these families already didn’t feel safe in their homes.
It's a win-win. The landlords get higher rent and the illegal aliens escape the evil regime of Evil Trump. Isn't that a good thing, Muslim Girl?
