..meaning apx. 1 in 4 is an illegal alien.

Santa Ana has one of the highest household occupancy rates of all American cities over 100,000 pop.

We lived in Santa Ana for 30 years until our recent move to Colorado. We lived in a gem of an area called Floral Park. It's near Broadway and Santa Clara and in my mind is the prettiest neighborhood in OC because of the nice houses from the 1930's and 40's. Prices from 500's to 2 million. But we did all our shopping outside of Santa Ana in Orange, Tustin, etc. Never felt safe at night near our house. Anything left outside overnight (kids toys, gardening tools) were likely to disapppear. And of course Santa Ana schools are a disaster. As for the rest of Santa Ana, unless you're a brave soul determined to experience diversity I'd avoid it.

Santa Ana is bad news. Dirty, ugly and high crime. The good news though is that there are a lot of great places to live that are very convenient and nearby, such as Irvine, etc., so you can live in a good safe area and have a short commute.

The City Officials and Residents of Santa Ana shouldn't tolerate the Gangs,Crime and The Blight in their City.

Because of Santa Ana's Location,that city has Enormous Potential and could be transformed into another Irvine.

Santa Ana should take advantage of it's location,being in Orange County and in Southern California to make Improvements on every level,so that it can become a Great and Safe City to live in.

The only way Santa Ana will ever improve is if they fix the school system and I don't see that happening as long as the city's 1/2 illegal aliens who don't speak English. The schools there are the kiss of death to any normal person looking for a house. The houses there aren't even that cheap. Certainly not cheap enough to offset the cost of private school.

It's a very sad situation of what Santa Ana is capable of becoming,but yet the City or it's Citizens don't seem Enthusiastic for a change for the Better.

Santa Ana is acting like one of those Sanctuary Cities in my opinion,and maybe that's why they are stuck in the position they are in.
