Ah, the graffiti. A 178-unit public-housing project for 'low-income Latinos' opened in my neighborhood last year and almost immediately the graffiti started showing up. I wish the neighborhood association could sue the county for allowing (encouraging!) this kind of development. (Of course, not one of our delightful Multnomah County Commissioners lives within miles of our neighborhood. I wish that, for once, they'd plant an enormous welfare housing project for illegal aliens in one of the ritzier areas, but that'll be the day.)
Interesting. In the New York area, the illegals typically live in private housing. Public housing is largely occupied by the blacks and native-born Nuyoricans, who hand their apartments in the PJs down to their kids.
Same thing has happened in Green Bay.
Illegal aliens have taken over an apt complex and reduced the adjacent properties in value.
