Can a landlord tell you who can come visit you at the residence?

Question Details:

My landlord is trying to tell me and my wife that my brother-in-law isn't allowed to come over to our house and visit us. My brother-in-law is a prior felon who has served his time in the TX penal system and no documents have ever been procured by the landlord or local authorities regarding criminal trespassing or anything to that effect. My landlord told my wife that if he finds out that he's at the house that we will be out. Is this legal or not?
