According to mystateline.com, Landlords can no longer refuse to rent to someone just because they are an undocumented migrant. A new law will go into place on January, 1st, 2024 that prevents landlords from denying undocumented migrants from renting their properties. In the article on mystateline.com, they say...

"Starting January 1st, 2024, Illinois landlords will be required to rent or sell property to undocumented migrants. The law adds immigration status as a protected class in the Illinois Human Rights Act. According to The Center Square, more than 11,000 migrants from Central and South America have arrived in Illinois since last August, after being bused northward by border states...This year, the Illinois General Assembly has also passed legislation allowing noncitizens to obtain legal driver’s licenses and become police officers."

Is this a law you support?

This is a really difficult subject to get to the bottom of, we obviously have a migrant crisis on our hands in this country, and if these migrants are staying in this country they need places to live. But, is it fair for the government to tell you you MUST rent to them if they meet all the other standards? I am not a landlord but I would imagine if I was going to let someone rent my property I would want proper documentation on those people in case damages occur or to make sure the person I am letting stay at my property is not a criminal or worse.
