Question Are illegal aliens why Stockton is disliked?

I remember a little over 12 years ago, Stockton was a mostly White, quiet city. Cars hardly drove down your neighborhood. Now there's an invasion of illegal mexicans into the area, there's gang writing everywhere now and it's not recognizably American anymore. You go into a public place and feel like the only White person there. Are illegal aliens why Stockton is disliked? I never heard a bad word about Stockton until now.

Stockton has not changed all that drastically in the last twelve years, its always been poorer and downtrodden in relation to the Bay Area. I remember the westside being nice, but the Downtown area and east were looking worn down. BTW according to census in 2000 Stockton was 32.2% Non-hispanic White, Now its estimated at 27.2%, a definite decrease, but not as big as the op makes it seem.

What is there to do in Stockton? NOTHING! To the OP Stockon hasn't changed but your perception of it has.

Not really. Even most of Mexico isn't as depressing as Stockton.

my response to this question:

I'd say crime, poverty and the relative isolation/boringness compared to the Bay Area/Sacramento has more to do with the bad things people say about Stockton.
