ACORN Housing -- Katherine Conway Russell

Primer on affordable homes

Perhaps the greatest demographic served by Cabrillo is farmworkers. Part of the nonprofit’s original mission statement was to provide housing for this particular group, de Escontrias said.

Barbara Macri-Ortiz, principal of the Law Office of Barbara Macri-Ortiz, said she remembers the struggle farmworkers endured about 20 years ago when CEDC was trying to create suitable affordable housing in Oxnard.

In 1996, the tenants lived in shacks that were built in the 1930s on block foundations, and when it rained, the water came in through the roof, creating a river of sorts below, Macri-Ortiz said.

“I had worked with United Farmworkers for 20 years (at that time) and had seen a lot of horrible living conditions, but this topped the list,” she told the tour group. “There was mold constantly growing on the walls, rats in the shacks.”

After a handful of tenants complained to the landlord, Macri-Ortiz said, they were given eviction notices.

Your question should read: "Did he violate ANOTHER federal law?", and the answer is a resounding YES!

He has broken several, and thinks that he does not have to follow the law.
