The City of Fremont is about to revisit a controversial ordinance designed to restrict illegal immigrants from renting housing.
Tonight, the nine-member City Council is scheduled to take its first look at an amendment to repeal the part of the ordinance that prohibits renting to those living in the United States illegally and requires rental licenses for landlords.
