California tenants get free lawyers when they are evicted from a rental property, and now the left is demanding that this handout be expanded to illegal immigrants.
“The court system is very nebulous and discouraging for residents, who do not know how the court system works,” said Sandra Plascencia, a policy advocate with Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability, a local advocacy group.
So the landlords have to fight against the government’s unlimited coffers. What effect does this have? The reputable businessmen will leave the rental business, and all you have left will be the shysters. This woman only makes $500 a week. In California. There aren’t many reputable landlords who will rent to someone making $25k a year in an expensive real estate market like California. After all, what kind of place can you realistically think you are going to rent for a woman, her child, and her elderly mother in a city whose average rent is $1.64 a month? A shitty one, that’s what. Still, forcing landlords to provide all of these benefits and forcing them to provide nicer rentals is merely going to ensure that women like the one in the article won’t be able to get a rental at any price.
Of course the commies in California have to lie and misdirect, because that is what the left does:
“If you steal a watermelon or a steak from a store and get arrested, you get a public defender to walk you through the whole entire process,” said Shara Thompson, the Central Valley regional coordinator with Tenants Together, a local advocacy group. “But when you’re being evicted for subletting — which is very minuscule — you don’t get any assistance.”
The big lie here is that stealing is a criminal offense where the legal adversary is the government and losing means perhaps going to jail. In an eviction your legal adversary is another citizen, and losing means having to move out of the rental property that you don’t own and aren’t paying for.
According to the California Apartment Association, rent increases above 10% annually are allowed on older buildings if landlords provide proper notice. Landlords can also evict people on the claim of major renovations to the home, which advocates say is another common tactic they believe is used to evict tenants.
Then the article goes on to claim that landlords are being unfair because they won’t renovate properties, but then also takes landlords to task for asking tenants to move out so they can renovate properties.
I have said before that one of the things that communists ALWAYS do is portray property owners into some sort of evil monsters who prey on the poor. You will notice that the article is nearly ignoring the fact that wage earner for this illegal immigrant family of three is earning less than California’s minimum wage.
Commies gonna commie.
