El Paso to Chicago: The popular bus route


 (My new American Thinker post)

We learned yesterday that landlords in Illinois won't be allowed to consider a future tenant's immigration status. This is the story:    

An Illinois law set to go into effect at the beginning of 2024 will ban landlords from discriminating against potential tenants on the basis of their immigration status.

Illinois Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed SB 1817 into law late last month, which will add "protections in the Illinois Human Rights Act for housing regarding immigration status protection and discriminatory advertising."

The law was part of several pieces of legislation Pritzker signed last month, including another law aimed at giving undocumented immigrants access to state drivers licenses. The bill replaces the current Temporary Visitor Driver's License with a standard license that will last four years, a move that will impact over 300,000 people who currently hold the temporary licenses.

Talking about creating an incentive to go the Windy City.  That Chicago bus seat just got more and more popular.

There are several problems here.  

First, your immigration status is important when it comes to your criminal record.  I'm sure that most of the migrants do not have a criminal background.  However, the landlord should be allowed to investigate the perspective tenant.  It's a common-sense issue for someone who is going to give you the keys to their property. 

Second, how do you evict a person who is in the country illegally?  How do you enforce a lease signed by someone you can't check?

So don't be surprised if more migrants check Chicago as their favored destination.  Furthermore, don't be shocked if more landlords in Illinois put their property up for sale.

The story of Desi Arnaz and "Desilu" with Frank Burke, author




By the winter of 1964, my brother and I were attending school in Wisconsin.
It was fun playing football in snowstorms and answering questions about “Ricky Ricardo”, or the only Cuban that any of my friends knew anything about.
Desi was born Desiderio Alberto Arnaz y de Acha III in 1917.  His father was a politician and mayor of Santiago de Cuba, or the second largest city on the island.
In the 1930s, Mr. Arnaz sent Desi and his mother to the U.S.  He joined them a little later.  We understand that Mr. Arnaz had some political problems and decided to take a little “exile” in Florida.
In the U.S., Desi worked in odd jobs and eventually found himself playing “bongos” on stage. 
 In 1940, he met Lucy and they were married quickly.  They worked separately for most the 1940s until the idea of “I Love Lucy” in 1951.
We also remember him for “Desilu,” the TV company that changed TV and produced many of the sitcoms that we grew up watching.  
Desi Arnaz became one of the most successful businessmen and executives of the 20th century.
He died in 1986.
We spoke with Frank Burke, author, businessman & contributor to American Thinker........We remembered Desi Arnaz (1917-1986) and 'I love Lucy' plus the business story of 'Desilu'..........and other stories........click to listen:
