    Exclamation Florida Landlord to Evict People Who Refuse Coronavirus Jab

    Florida Landlord to Evict People Who Refuse Coronavirus Jab

    A Florida landlord who owns eight apartment complexes totaling 1,200 units has given his tenants an ultimatum: get the Chinese coronavirus vaccine or get out.

    Santiago A. Alvarez, 80, who mostly owns properties in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, told his employees and new tenants they must be able to show proof of vaccination by August 15. Those who already live in the building must get vaccinated if they wish to renew their leases.

    “We have to be concerned about our tenants and our employees. All of these are private properties. We’re just trying to keep people safe and healthy. It’s going to cost us money, but we’re very firm on that,” Alvarez told Florida’s Sun-Sentinel after 15 of his tenants died in the pandemic.

    Whether the move is legal is another matter entirely. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a bill this year that bans businesses, educational institutions, and government entities from requiring vaccine passports. The rule went into effect on Thursday and will be enforced by the Florida Department of Health.

    “Florida law is clear. A business owner cannot require vaccine passports as a condition of entry. Each violation of the law will result in a $5000 fine,” Gov. DeSantis’s press secretary Christina Pushaw told Breitbart News on Thursday when asked if Alvarez is in violation of the vaccine passport ban.

    Pushaw further said people’s jobs and housing should not be jeopardized over a “personal medical decision.”

    “As Governor DeSantis said, nobody should lose their job over these unscientific and overreaching vaccine mandates. The same goes for housing; nobody should be denied a roof over their head because of a personal medical decision,” Pushaw said.

    “As a side note, it is ironic how the Left is all for the CDC’s unconstitutional eviction moratorium, but they apparently have no problem with a landlord threatening to evict lawful paying tenants over vaccination status,” she continued.

    However, Alvarez’s attorney, Juan C. Zorrilla, said he believes his client is not violating the vaccine passport ban because tenants are not “customers or patrons,” the Washington Post reported. He further said Alvarez is not providing a service to them and is willing to make exceptions for religious and medical exemptions.

    Alvarez’s order has already cost one tenant a place to live. Jasmine Irby’s lease was up on August 31, but she had no plans of getting the vaccine, according to the Post. Instead, she left at the end of the month and moved in with family.

    “No one wants to live anywhere where they are not wanted … If that’s the case, then I might as well get out,” Irby said. “It was just best that I walked away.”

    This doesn't really bother me.

    Now can we also evict people for silly things like not paying their rent??

    This covid silliness is affecting me. I am going to change business locations because my landlord is trying to micromanage me. We are on friendly terms and they seem shocked because I don't like to be told what to do. I guess because in the past I was always open to suggestions just to get along. But I draw the line between suggestions and orders.

    Anyway it sucks. Businesses were hit hard by the summer of love riots and covid overreactions in my progressive utopia town. The rural suburb where I live is cool, but drive 20 minutes into town and it's suddenly clown world, but I am not laughing anymore. This is how I feed my family.

    THIS belongs in the Clown Show (except the part about the ban applying to government entities).
    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

    I would add "educational institutions" to your exception, if they are publicly funded.

    (And just to be clear, my own earlier reference to the Clown Show was made with respect to the opportunistic hypocrisy exhibited by Occupy Democrats.)

    I understand, and I fully agree.

    This is probably not legal under current anti-discrimination laws. Liberals don't get to pick and choose who isn't discriminated against.

    Of course tenants are customers. Everything is commercial contracts, whether you're renting an apartment or buying a widget at Walmart. He's selling a product and/or service just like any other corporation is.

    He's a idiot if he tries to enforce it and will be sued to bankruptcy. Blackrock is licking their lips at the potential if landlords start doing this.

    "We have set them on the hobby-horse of an idea about the absorption of individuality by the symbolic unit of COLLECTIVISM. They have never yet and they never will have the sense to reflect that this hobby-horse is a manifest violation of the most important law of nature, which has established from the very creation of the world one unit unlike another and precisely for the purpose of instituting individuality."- A Quote From Some Old Book
