Default Day Laborers swarm MLK jr. blvd and 47th ave.

For those of you not from south Sac,

There is a swelling population of foreign born men standing on the streets surrounding Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and 47th avenue. Saturday there were in excess of 200 of them loitering there. This has not been a good influence on this neighborhood as the streets are littered with daily leftover goods wrappers and the living quarters have a daily display of trash piles, broken cars, refrigerators etc. To add to this, there are many spray painted gang markings evident everywhere. The laborers are also attracting nuisance vendors who appear to be catering to them illegally. In addition, the laborers are contributing to the delinquency of businesses who are becoming less and less conconcerned about competing unfairly in the marketplace by hiring under the table.
My attempts to document this with pictures and video tape were met with name calling, hand gestures of a disrespectful nature, and small objects being thrown at me.
I'd like to encourage everyone living in this area to come forward and help oppose this bit of unfairness by joining me in the employment of different tactics which will curtail the growing problems there. The County of Sacramento is the responsible entity, and they are now working towards legitimizing this whole enterprise and moving it to an old house down the street, right across from a park meant for 6 year old kids.
I'll post some pictures here later so those out of the area can get a taste of it.

FBIS Administrator's edit 6-8-09:

One of the entities that many of the pictures on this thread were hosted on has recently closed and went off line. therefore, you will find this thread has many blank posts where pictures were previously, as well as links to videos leading nowhere. The original poster is hoping to rehost the links and pictures on a different service, and we will be working to replace the links as that happens.

Legitimizing what enterprise?

Using the word 'enterprise' implies that all these foriegners loitering around the gas station for 6 to 8 hours a day are actually working, when most of them are not.

Im always struck by people defending these loiterers as 'workers' 'trying to feed their families' when anyone who observes the situation down there, sees firsthand that NONE of the men standing around are working or gainfully employed. At best, these guys work a few days out of the week if they are lucky- and the rest of the time, they are burning daylight, clustered together, socialising under the pretense they are actively seeking work.

If this was say, an equal number of African-Americans, loitering laws would have been enforced and arrests would have been made. Likewise, if these were American teens of any race- they too would have already been run off by law enforcement.

What this is, is selective enforcement.

I guess I should have re-worded that,

But what I meant by enterprise was the charitable organization that has been operating subversively there to aid those fraudulent employers and the under the table workers meet each other. So far it the charity has been only visible to us, but now the county wants to legitimize them and their illegal business by looking the other way about the fraud and other aspects of this scam.
