It has long been my position that such laws have no right to exist. As a very low income person I see such laws as oppressive legislation passed by the rich, for the rich. In addition, you commonly see "boarding house" laws or ordinances passed by racist communities that dislike Latino migrants and people of color in general. As Latino migrants are part or mostly Indigenous and so am I, I see that kind of racism as a personal affront,
Therefore I see these laws as the laws of an enemy force of occupation and support any and all persons who choose to overtly or covertly defy such laws.
