    I am confused by this project.
    This seems very old by the dates on the posts.
    Has this been resolved?

    Bill would nix Escondido-like rental laws

    By: PAUL EAKINS - Staff Writer

    ESCONDIDO -- Some members of the Escondido City Council have said they would like to revisit last year's failed, controversial ordinance that punished landlords for renting to illegal immigrants, but they may not have that chance if a bill proposed in the state Assembly becomes law.

    NORTH COUNTY ---- A bill that would keep city councils from targeting illegal immigrant renters, as Escondido's did last year, is still alive in the state Legislature.

    Bitter Defeated Lib dem Francine Busby Comments on Escondid

    I am posting an idiotic commentary by defeated Lib Dem Francine Busby on this subject.

    I spent the better part of last year working to defeat Busby in the California 50th Congressional district. Busby lost to Rep. Brian Bilbray and lost over the issue of illegal immigration.

    Here's Busby's commentary that appeared in the North County Times in May. I am submitting this commentary (freely available on the North County times net archives) under the "fair comment provision of the 1st Amendment". I am commenting that Ms. Busby is pointing the finger at super rich CEO Bill Marriot of Marriot Hotels to show that big business supports big government idiot lib/dems like her demanding open borders immigration, so the rest of us should just bow to the power of the big business and big government and let people like Francine Busby get mega $ billions to run public schools, public hospitals etc.

    Business finally barking on immigration

    By: FRANCINE BUSBY - Commentary:

    While Escondido is taking steps to accommodate a new Marriott Hotel, Mr. Bill Marriott, chairman and CEO of Marriott International, is mounting the Capitol steps and making the media rounds demanding action on comprehensive reforms that, among other things, discourage cities like Escondido from passing immigration laws that hinder their ability to operate in all 50 states.

    Mr. Marriott is exercising his political muscle to bring some cold, hard facts to the immigration debate. The open letter that he carried from CEOs of Hilton, Loews, Hyatt, Intercontinental and Starwood hotel chains expresses the urgent labor needs of the hospitality industry.

    These are familiar names in San Diego County, where hospitality and tourism is the third largest industry after military and manufacturing, bringing in well over $5.3 billion to the local economy. San Diego has a significant stake in the success of comprehensive immigration reform.

    And Mr. Marriott isn't alone. Business coalitions are organizing in many states to push for comprehensive immigration reform. Not so they can exploit labor, but so they can hire the workers they need to stay in business. Colorado Employers for Immigration Reform includes members from farming, construction, hotels and restaurants. The Texas Employers for Immigration Reform has been running an ad on cable and broadcast television across Texas with business owners attesting to the need for workers if their businesses are to remain successful. Florida Employers for Immigration and Visa Reform, based in Tallahassee, was formed in February and lists 49 businesses and trade associations as members on its Web site.

    Immigration hard-liners bash business as the root cause of illegal immigration but offer no workable solution to augment the domestic work force. The very suggestion that we find reasonable and humane ways to deal with the millions of workers who are integrated into our economy brings on the predictable mantra of "Amnesty! Amnesty!" A case in point is Rep. Brian Bilbray's response to the Senate's proposal, "What part of illegal does the Senate not understand?" He said in a written statement: "Any plan that rewards illegal behavior is amnesty."

    Californians agree with Mr. Marriott. By an 83 percent majority, Californians support providing legal status to undocumented workers who have been here for some time, have a job, learn English, and pay back taxes, according to a Field Poll released April 10. In addition, 67 percent of California voters favor the creation of temporary worker programs to provide a legal channel for immigrants to cross the border and work in the United States. Significant majorities also support increasing the number of agents patrolling the border and stiff penalties for employers who hire illegal immigrants, which are also key aspects of comprehensive reform.

    Mr. Marriott says, "We opened a new hotel a few months ago and we couldn't even open all rooms because we didn't have enough people to clean the rooms. And so our need for workers from countries abroad is extremely, extremely high."

    Hopefully the opening of the new Marriott Hotel in Escondido won't be diminished for lack of workers ... and foresight.

    -- Cardiff resident Francine Busby was the Democratic candidate who lost to Bilbray in the 50th Congressional District last year.
