Abstract Beginning in 2006, the city of Farmers Branch, Texas, passed a series of housing ordinances restricting an individual’s ability to rent housing based on immigration status. The most recent ordinance required all prospective renters to provide proof of immigration status to be verified by the federal government in order to obtain a rental license. It also authorized the city to revoke the rental license of anyone found to be unlawfully present in the United States.
