Hofstra Law Review


In this Article, I will first review some of the literature on anti-immigrant biases in housing code enforcement in the United States. Then, I will describe issues of selective enforcement of housing codes in present-day Long Island using cases from the Hofstra Housing Rights Clinic as concrete illustrations. Finally, I will discuss ways that local governments both on Long Island and elsewhere can reconsider priorities in enforcing their housing codes to address the problems of cultural biases.
