what do you mean by “gone...”
Can you add some description to that?

I know what’s happened to the San Fernando valley where my folks still live in the house I grew up in, but a description of Bakersfield before and after helps.

A few months ago, my childhood friend’s mother (my friend is long gone of course; haven’t seen him in 15 yars) sold her house to move to a retirement community. It was a nice corner house I’d spend countless hours in during the late 1970s. Nicely trimmed, and watered yard. Painted. Clean. Leave it to Beaver etc.

Of course, a Hispanic family bought it—or several families.

Immediately, for some reason, they just began digging up the yard and planting trees and bushes like every 5 feet; randomly and ceased taking care of the grass—just random bushes of various kinds all over the yard. They moved a bench out to the front porch and several of them sit out and stare at the street at night...I guess they don’t have a television, and I doubt they can read.

And several piece of sh!t cars now litter the street (+ a couple in the driveway)...
It’s being converted from a home into a Mexican Barrio city-farm.
At this point, what can you do but laugh. Looks like complete sh!t though. I mean...it looks like SH!T.

The illegals have taken over Bakersfield and are procreating at an exponential rate.
The situation you described is everywhere here. New, nice neighborhoods only stay that way for about 5 years.
There is absolutely nowhere in town that is ‘safe’. We have had home invasion robberies in upscale neighborhoods.
We have a larger than 5 sq mile radius that looks just like Mexico.
The hispanics have moved into all the lower economic sections of town, including what used to be the black neighborhoods. They have run the blacks into other areas.
Our surrounding small towns are all 97% hispanic now.
We have gang wars on our streets.
Everyone we talk to is looking at going somewhere else.
Specific enough for you?

The Valley has gone pretty far downhill, hasn't it. Van Nuys 60 years ago and today. The last thing it needs is more immigration.
