Native Americans jump on anti-immigrant bandwagon

"Tenants of the Tesuque Trailer Village will have to pay $126.50 more per month to rent their mobile-home spaces — and show proof that everyone in the household is living in the U.S legally.  The pueblo notified residents in a letter dated Oct. 17 that all tenants must sign new rental contracts and comply with the new policies if they want to continue living in the community.  Last week, property manager Dan Clavio, who signed the letter, explained to a tenant seeking to renew her contract that "the tribe receives lots of funding from the federal government and they want to make sure they are doing things right."  But neither the U.S. government nor the laws of New Mexico prohibit renting to undocumented immigrants." - Sandra Baltazar MartÍnez, The New Mexican, Nov. 7, 2011.
