Re: “New Oakland Law Fails to Protect Low-Income Residents

So the owner of the hotel can't sell it because people live there? Well, is it that entity's obligation to keep things status quo instead of exercising the right of ownership to do with the property as what is most economically viable? Get government and activists out of private property where it doesn't deal with zoning and usage. Have the City buy the property then if they want to continue having it adorn the streets as a flop house. Might as well.

Re: “Activists Hasten Oakland's Slow-Moving Plans to Permit Homeless Encampments

Just bus them out of here. Take some public land out of the immediate area and set up a camp. It is the safest thing to do for those who are homeless and for those that have gainful employment etc etc etc

Re: “Tuesday’s Briefing: Rent Control Expansion Proposed for Ballot; Newsom Says State Needs to Build 3.5 Million Homes

Build all the affordable housing that is necessary with appropriate tax funds etc. BUT do not try to take advantage of mom and pop property owners that have enough problems already with managing their properties. Rent Control is income redistribution and is an economic disaster except for a few tenants and it is suspect as to how it really helps things overall.

Re: “Oakland City Council to Hold Hearing on Controversial ICE Raid and Oakland Police Misinformation

Jonny, Yes to your first question. Regarding status, here's a bit more:

an illegal immigrant, illegal alien or undocumented alien is person who is residing on a non-temporary basis in a country where s/he has no legal right to reside. It is a non-citizen who has entered a country through irregular migration,[2] for example entered illegally, or an alien who entered a country legally but who has fallen "out of status",[3] or a descendant of one.
a legal alien is a non-citizen who is legally permitted to remain in a country. This is a very broad category which includes tourists, guest workers, legal permanent residents and student visa resident aliens.
a nonresident alien is a non-citizen who is visiting a country, for example as a tourist, on business, entertainers, sportspeople or in the country to receive medical treatment.
a resident alien is a non-citizen who has permanent resident status in a country.

Re: “Oakland City Council to Hold Hearing on Controversial ICE Raid and Oakland Police Misinformation

Just sick that some residents think it awful about rounding up illegal aliens. When there is a will (which there is) there is a way. And please quit calling illegal aliens as immigrants. They are not. Let's all pay more taxes and reduce this population in CA from close to 8% of the population by at least half....and defund all the activist orgs in Oakland and Berkeley for starters!!

Re: “Getting Rich Off Low-Income Housing

Ah yes, its always people of affluence that are at fault. Never mind the folks who have frittered their lives away living on the dole and just wanting more and more free stuff because its the rich that cause all their problems. What a bunch of nonsense! And Lynita is just the type of person we would all enjoy having living next to us....can I borrow a cup of sugar and will you pay for my rent?!

Re: “Updated: Opposition Emerges Right Off the Bat to A's Laney Ballpark Plans

So tired of the negative wrap about gentifrication. Improvements and revitalization of areas is a positive not a negative. Trying to keep a place holder on worn out areas provides its own set of problems.
