The truth is "mean"? Feel free to put your home address up here and take in a bus load. I saw my neighborhood change greatly once those folks moved in.

(Katrina changed demographics / communities all over the USA)

Similar in Atlanta , my sis' home value dropped $100k, and she had a tough time exiting / escaping / becoming yet another 'refugee' / displaced home owner.

Yes, I know. It is always interesting how those immune seem to tell the rest of how to behave.

The whole area near 410 and Perrin Beitel changed A LOT when the "evacuees" from Katrina moved here. Not right away but over a course of a few years after.

Makes them look like "others". Might as well grease the wheels of discrimination in advance.

We're not discriminating. We are just speaking cold hard truths from our personal experiences with the displaced/evacuees that move in. Hope they move next door to you. That housing voucher they get is just a nicer version of section 8.

People on both sides of this debate are right.

Helping others is a part of being a decent human being. Period.

But, when folks stay in a city they unexpectedly land in, it can change a demographic, values, safety, etc. That's the nature of the beast. Good, bad, indifferent.

and being that this is America.... most (nearly all) of us originated elsewhere. (No less pain, just "Expect change" and do what you can to improve conditions for all. But truly there will be CHANGE in SA.

Austin Hwy is very scary at night and sometimes even during the day. It was cleaned up for a few years but it's getting bad again. This may be the last straw for me to move out of Alamo Heights and into the country. I can't imagine anymore of those fine citizens coming.
