Town that ‘welcomes’ illegal immigrants wants second-home owners to ‘check in’ - Valley News

The Town of Hartford - the “welcoming” town for illegal immigrants - is NOT behaving like Big Brother to second-home owners. Really. It just wants them to check in upon arrival.

““It’s not for enforcement,” Godfrey said. “It’s really so that we just have an idea how many and where the movement of people into town from out of state is happening.” I guess that’s meant to be reassuring. The town won’t be tracking New Yorkers who try to sneak off to the Quechee polo field before their 14-day self-quarantine is up, after all. Still, asking non-resident homeowners to supply their name, address and phone number “so that we can be aware of your presence in the community” seems at odds with the spirit of the town’s recently adopted “welcoming” ordinance. What if the town asked undocumented immigrants for their contact information, when they arrived in Hartford and from where?"
