Mexicans Migrants get $2.3 million in taxpayer money for housing While legal Oregonians are homeless & facing Foreclosure

We dont need mexican migrants to pick our food, we have Legal Americans who can do the work and at less expense to our country. Woodburn  and Silverton and Salem are all examples of what happens to Migrantsin Oregon;  They never return to mexico, they stay and breed and join gangs and become drug dealers. They are not cheap labor ,they are the most expensive money  can buy. It is yet another outrage that Americans in Oregon often live in substandard housing , with no recourse but to move, yet migrants get entire apartment complexes built just for them and they dont even have to work as farmworkers ( See washington county housing) . In the meantime where is the money for poor and working class Americans in Oregon to help them with housing>m_0b028d3671ba49fc9fd860a4cbb07bee
 The entire Section 8 Program is sliding into ruin because Landlords can rent to mexicans and keep their complexes substandard, whereas if they rent to Americans with section 8 coupons they have to bring their places up to code. Yet another way, mexicans cost us again and again and how they undermine our society. The growers who import them and look the other way when the male migrants rape and drive drunk.
