Yes, I know that graffiti is not a problem commited only by illegal immigrants, but since so many Hispanic gangs have a high proportion of illegal immigrant members, and these gangs are largely responsible for graffiti, this article fits in this category.

Its just one more example of how many in society are lauding, applauding and promoting illegal activities which are often carried out by illegals.

"Law-abiding families avoid graffiti-blighted public parks, driven away by the spirit-killing ugliness of graffiti as much as by its criminality."


"But MOCA's hypocrisy in glorifying a crime that it would never tolerate on its own property is easily matched by the two-faced behavior of graffiti vandals themselves."

"I've never written on my own house," a former tagger from Gardena's Graffiti Bandits Krew told me. He was waiting to get his tattoos removed at Homeboy Industries downtown. "I wouldn't like it if someone else did it on my house."

Another ex-tagger from Graffiti 'N' Drugs in Pico Rivera... "Why would you want to [ louse] up your own house?" he asked me. "That's why you go out and mess up other people's cities."

I used to tag things while a kid back in LA. Never got caught. Now I know better and WILL call the copa if I see tagging.

MOCA stands for Museum Of Contemporary Art and it's from downtown LA. It does NOT stand for Migration Of Criminal Aliens. No matter how you want to twist it, this is not an illegal immigration issue. This is goes to show how people stereotype illegal immigrants.

Yes, it IS an illegal immigrant issue. Illegal immigrants make up a large proportion of the Hispanic gangs. These gangs tag and graffiti to mark their territory, kind of like dogs pis*ing on a wall or tree...
