Greetings,

As a new resident in Moorpark, I am very concerned about the de facto
day laborer pick-up site(s) at the corner of High St and Spring Rd (in
particular, at the Tipsy Fox). As you know, the problem already out
of control and continues to get worse.

I now routinely see the potential laborers menacingly staring down
cars, cat-calling women as they walk or drive by, urinating in public
and on the street, public intoxication, sleeping on the sidewalks,
littering, and running in front of / between / and through traffic
whenever an SUV or pick-up truck drives by.

In fact, in this week's Moorpark Acorn Police Blotter (June 29th edition),
one of the potential laborers (at the Tipsy Fox) urinated on the
arresting arresting officer! I am very concerned that someone (or
many) will be seriously injured or worse. I also have seen police cars
drive right by (without stopping or even hitting the breaks) while one
potential laborer is literally carrying / dragging a very intoxicated
person down the sidewalk... This situation is completely out of
control.

Where/when will an official site be built? Something must be done
immediately - how long will the city tolerate this? Again, I am
fearful for the public health & safety of the community (including the
safety of the day laborers themselves).

These are humans beings and if we are going to let them congregate,
they need a place that has adequate toilet, water and shelter from the
elements where they can be picked up without getting run over in
traffic. It is time to take care of the issue in a timely, humane
manner.

I completely agree. This is a HUGE issue for the city and thus, needs the complete attention of city officials. We need a plan and a solution in place before the end of the year!

Interesting. I think TO fixed this issue in a humane way. It is intimidating to drive by the Spring Rd / High St intersection. I have seen people passed out under the trees there in the middle of the day. Disturbing...

Some of the men are there early in the morning to get picked up to go to work. The others that are there later are just loitering and being a nuisance. The police down the street should address this as we pay good tax dollars to take care of these issues. Instead the police officers seem to spend their time down the street at the Starbuck's.

Yes. This indeed is our nation's largest growing problem besides Islamo-fascist terrorism. It is important to be humane, yet upholding our nation's laws. It seems to me that building a permanent shelter or structure for these illegal "day laborer" invaders would be to encourage law-breakers to continue to live and work in our country illegally. Don't forget, all of these illegals have obtained false documentation, mostly through identity theft. Most companies that tolerate these so called day laborers will not only lose business to American citizens who've had it up to here, but will also feel the sting of the law. They will be fined and imprisoned (The laws have existed on the books for years) It is time to enforce our immigration laws and discourage illegal immigrant workers as much as possible. Who cares if lettuce will cost more? We think we're saving money with cheap labor, when in actuality we are paying out the nose in tax dollars and social security for these foreign invaders.

Sadly, NOTHING has been done about this issue for many, many years in Moorpark. If I'd have known that the local authorities were so willing to turn a blind eye and basically just "pocket" our tax dollars - I would have moved somewhere else.

In fact, one day I saw a person passed out under the shade tree by the Tipsy Fox and I called the authorities not nowing whether the man was hurt, injured or simply passed out DRUNK on the side of the road. I was picking up a pizza from the Domnios across the street. So, I waited to see if there would be an intervention.

About 3-4 police cars just drove by, hit their break lights (obviously "policing" from inside their patrol cars) and DROVE ON PAST! I can only deduct that they were afraid of getting peed on.(as referenced by the first poster above). We'll in just driving by, the officers basically just PISSED on the law they swore to uphold. Shameful...

I guess the law is irrelevent in Moorpark. We should serious consider bringing in Federal officials to investigate the local authorities who fail to enforce the law. I wonder how much money they (local authorities) are making in kick-backs to look the other way... (not to mention the proceeds on the local drug trade)...

All TO did was make them move to a side street so they are out of sight. How is that solving the problem? To my knowledge there are no restroom facilities in that park.

This is an interesting string. My view on this is simple - out of sight, out of mind. It's like this: I know there are rats in the field, but don't want to see them... especially a group of people who reproduce in a similar, irresponsible fashion. I drove by yesterday and saw one peeing in the dirt behind the Tipsy Fox. Nice.

We should consider the significant number of mexican illegal aliens an Act of War on behalf of the Mexican government and thus, protect our lands with force, if necessary.

Is this still an issue in SadPark, CA? I spoke with the police and the Mayor about this when I lived there - I moved my family out of Moorpark at least in part due to this problem. I did not want my children why adults were urinating and defacating in public at the street corner and trying to explain why the local authorities didn't care. I also didn't like to watch them sitting in their cars drinking (once on Halloween) and calling the police who never showed up and trying to explain that... I guess impotent law enforcement has its reasons... sad, sad, Sadpark, CA. Glad to be gone. Go ahead and ceed it to Mexico. They won Southern California.
