FARMERS BRANCH, Texas — A federal judge found Wednesday that a Dallas suburb’s rule prohibiting apartment rentals to illegal immigrants was unconstitutional and could not be enforced.
In his decision, U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay concluded only the federal government can regulate immigration. Farmers Branch didn’t defer to the federal government in immigration matters. Instead, the city tried to create its own classification to determine which noncitizens could rent in Farmers Branch, the judge said.
