Only California would have a law that protects someone on your property illegally. Has that entire state just gone off the deep end or something? Why is California so freaky?

That's a funny map, synopsis. California should have done something about their problems before they got so out of hand. I think they worry too much about being politically correct. In San Francisco for example, the panhandling problem is terrible. Most of them are not poor at all, they just beg for a living and live in the parks.

This is from the second link

While urban areas undoubtedly offer the largest squatter populations overall, some people squat in even the smallest and least hospitable towns. In 1992, my own small corner of the world, Santa Cruz, California, had a population of only 50,000 and very few vacant houses. Even in this small, admittedly countercultural town, I personally knew more than two dozen people who were self-conscious squatters. I hear stories about squatters in the strangest of places: one guy up the road from a winery in Sonoma, California, who, to the distress of the landowner, built himself a teepee. One friend had to evict a squatter from her mother's cabin in a small New Mexico town. When I was three years old, even my mother and I squatted for a summer. We lived in an abandoned farmhouse in the middle of Missouri. If my anecdotal experiences are any indication, most communities in the Northern wealthy nations probably host at the very least a few squatters per thousand residents.
============================

I've seen 3 families living in a 2 car garage, with a auto repair going in one and the 3 families living in the other.
It was reported to "Code Enforcement" several times, but actually "code enforcement" is the main cause of the long evictions.

Our Community formed a Committee to get to the bottom of this. I was part of it.
