FOOD FOR THOUGHT By Donald DeVore
According to the 14th. Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Section 1, all persons born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any persona of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
It is my contention that all states are in conflict with this law because they do not provide the owners of manufactured housing equal rights and protection under the law that all other property owners have. Therefore, it is my claim that any Mobile Home Landlord/Tenant Act is illegal. All other persons who own property on leased land are regulated by existing Land-lease or Ground- lease laws. The owners of manufactured housing are not regulated by this law..
