I have also noticed many people squatting in vans in the parking lot of the vacant fast food place on Horizon Ridge and Stephanie.

Contact one if the local news agencies that does those, "on your side" episodes. It's amusing how things suddenly get solved when they are spotlighted on local tv.

Me too. I keep getting them towed off my street.

I don't know about getting them towed because they are pretty crafty. I think they have 72 hours to park on a public road until they have to move it. They usually park in areas where they do not have to park in front or across from someones house or pick a home that is vacant (for sale or just vacant). They will sleep in it and they will drive off to move or maybe go to work.

Good for them. I envy those who give a middle finger to the banks, landlords, and utility companies who gouge their customers whenever at all possible.

Millennials were screwed over by a government who outsourced all manufacturing and allowed companies hire foreign labor through H1-B visas rather than pay Americans more and train them.

These immigrants then increased the demand for housing, causing prices to increase to a point where home ownership is unattainable for most.

I'm glad that the Boomers - who created this problem - are feeling the effects of their selfishness on their streets.

Not enough Americans getting into the Nursing field that is why there is a need to hire Nurses from the Philippines. Not enough Americans getting into IT that is why India is supplying the shortage of tech professionals. In other words, it's the United States that is lacking and the rest of the world have the talent. In the end, it is a Win Win for both. Only the losers complain about it. United States' companies and hospitals benefit in the end hiring these professionals from overseas otherwise the country suffers. Philippine nurses give some of the best care in the world and from the looks of it, IT professionals from India know their field well.

The ones that are showing up down here are large RV's or truck towing an unmarked racecar trailor. The've been parking them on the walls that abut sidestreets or in the hammerhead style cul-de-sacs.

Nobody on my street owns these and they are always from Texas.

I'm not a Boomer. The average age of households in this area is mid-30s.

LOL. While there are some talented workers from India there is also a cheating culture in Indian educational institutions. Everybody wants on the IT train because what send back to India is Megabucks in Rupees.

I can't speak for Filipino nurses.
