>> hi good afternoon i'm sorry christine representing the law caucus thank you for your proficiency or patience there are a lot of speakers without further ado, i want to share a story i've been working with many, many families naming attendance this family is a family of 3 live in a two bedrooms and have guilt parents from china to the u.s. in 3 months from the starts of they're takency when he when they saw the unit they did ask the landlord is it possible for them to move in their parents with who will be golden state warriors to the u.s. the landlords adding and tell them they need to sign a lease with us and that will be fine your parents can live with
2:31 am
you so, of course, the tenants moved in and 3 months later their parents emigrated to the u.s. and was able to move in six months later the landlords told they can't stay because the parents are not on the lease and unauthorized tenants and knowing that the parents doesn't have anything else only the children and being in the chinese culture we have to take care of our parents without allowing the parents to stay the tenants will have to leave and find another place this story tells us with this legislation being passed from the tenants are are will have the opportunity and time to formally request the landlords to allow their parents to stay
