This is another case, like those in Hazleton, Pennsylvania (IM-PA-1), Valley Park, Missouri (IM-MO-1), and Riverside, New Jersey (IM-NJ-1, and IM-NJ-2) about a city's efforts to bar undocumented immigrants from its jurisdiction. In this case, the City of Escondido passed an ordinance preventing landlords from renting or "harboring" illegal aliens in their property and imposing other related restrictions on rental and eviction proceedings.

On November 3, 2006, a consortium of public interest organizations and lawyers and some firm lawyers filed the complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, seeking a declaration of the Ordinance's unconstitutionality. On November 7, they sought a TRO, which the Court (Judge John A. Houston) granted on November 20. Garrett v. City of Escondido, 465 F.Supp.2d 1043 (S.D.Cal. 2006).

A Preliminary Injunction hearing was scheduled for March, but in December, the City acceded to the lawsuit, agreeing to entry of a permanent injunction against enforcement of the ordinance, and paying plaintiffs' counsel $90,000 in attorneys fees. The injunction was entered on December 15, 2006.
