Will code enforcement help prevent overcrowding?

Latino advocacy group: Code enforcement won’t prevent crowding

Here’s an interesting article on the Latino advocacy group that focuses on Code enforcement. Of course their findings are biased and one sided, but entertaining.

Aggressive code enforcement won’t reduce overcrowding among Latinos living in the Chicago suburbs, a new report by a Latino advocacy group found.

“(Ramping up enforcement is) a risky and ineffective approach,” stated the report released Tuesday by Chicago-based Latinos United.

“It tends to hold occupants responsible for overcrowding instead of exploitative landlords, and sends a clear message to Latinos that they are not welcome.”

really, do you expect they would have said anything else. Must of been a quick study.
