It is tragic that the City Hall and Sacramento politicians squandered so many millions of our tax dollars on benefits and services for illegal foreign invaders. That money could have gone a long way to improve the quality of life for the least fortunate citizens in LA County. We all should be ashamed to have elected the anti citizen/pro illegal gangsters who have done this to citizen families in the increasingly tarnished Golden State.

i have an idea how about the city buys that big building on vineland ave in sun valley ,yes the one n front of mcdonalds and opens up a shelter /provides them with a job on the premisses in order for them to be able to live there,with the condition that they get help through programs and stay sober.they can have them make bread or make furniture ,you have to rehab these folks and get them to work so they can keep busy and give them hope to stay sober.....instead its a dumping ground for them here on vineland a lorne st,they are just loitering all day everyday!!!!!!!GET A PROGRAM TOGETHER ,DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM PLEASE ,ITS ONLY GETTING WORSE .some of these people actually want to get sober if just given the right chance.get them to work ,to earn their bed,to simply better themselves,and i return we can fix our community and have some pride which is long due.
