Fremont Can't Enforce Immigration Rule

Fremont is still struggling to enforce part of its ordinance requiring people to obtain licenses and swear they have legal permission to live in the U.S. before renting homes in the city.

Fremont Police Chief Jeff Elliott said nearly 500 rental licenses have been issued to people who applied and paid the $5 fee since the city started the process on April 10.

Only applicants who say they aren't U.S. citizens are investigated, but none of the 17 people who said they aren't citizens have been scrutinized.

Fremont lacks an agreement with the federal government, so Elliott said none of the applicants have been investigated.
