Sunnymead Ranch area (aka older suburban hell...aka precursor to Rancho Belago). I went to school in Santa Barbara and grew up in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as well.

Not when the grass turns brown, racoons and other animals enter, and not to mention vandalism that happens (broken windows, people hanging out...I did that when I was younger, it's ppretty normal in good neighborhoods even).

I told you all you need to know. Of course you insist on claiming this most ridiculous statement. Continue to do so. It kind of reinforces my point concerning how ingorance leads to a stubborn, loud minority.

I have honestly never known anyone to live 15 to a house...legal or illegal.

Really?You must not live in Southern California.When I took over as an apartment manager years back I had 8-9 people living in a single studio apartment and had a few single units with 5 and 6 people in it all originally from south of the border so considering that 15 to a house is plausible and myself and others have seen it.

I can only go by what the illegal maid told me....15-16 in one house. She was complaining that although she got many things free, medical and education, her wages were only 7 per hour at the hotel but also worked at McDonalds illegally in Deer Park Mall Humble Texas. She was also a housekeeper for a woman for 20 bucks an hour, 5 hours, twice per week, under the table of course. Her complaint was that she did not make enough money although she paid no insurance for her car, only paid 250 per month rent. Does not have a drivers license nor has any renewal fees or registration for her car. Her visa expired and she saw no reason to return home where her two daughters live with their grandmother. She showed me her 42" screen TV she had just purchased and is confused why she cannot just be a citizen. She really thinks all Americans are just living free off of someone else or are all "rich". She disgusts me.

Just google "clown houses." You'd be surprise how many hits you'll get on stories of illegal aliens living 15 to house....there was one story of 57 illegal immigrants in one house.

People want to close their eyes to reality, fine.

However, just remember. Google is your friend.

I live in SoCal, and haven't heard of 15 per house. If it does occur (which is entirely possible) it sure is not the norm.

Is that the norm though? It most likely is not, thus less telling of reality.
