2. One Voice, One goal, Our Dream: to Stop the Unjust Treatment and Deportation of Undocumented Workers

In Canada there are approximately 30,000 to 50,000 undocumented workers, many of whom are waiting for their application to be processed or who have been rejected. For those individuals seeking refuge a request for deportation means returning into an unsafe environment where they are at risk of harm, torture or death; the very reason why they fled. They are victims of human rights abusers and Canada should uphold their universal right to life, liberty, and security.

Up to 15,000 individuals in Ontario and 200,000 nationally have already been deported. For those that remain in Canada, the fear of deportation is constant, during which they are deprived of necessities such as medical access, safety, education, and decent wages for engaging in poor and unsafe work.

5. STOP THE MANSIONIZATION OF DOWNEY

We request that the Downey City Council and City Planning Department uphold the existing Downey Municipal Code "9110.14 The architecture & general appearance of the building shall be in keeping with the character of the neighborhood and such as not be detrimental to the general welfare of the neighborhood in which they are located." which is a valid enforceable regulation under California law (Schroeder v. Municipal Court 73 Cal App3d 841.848 1977.

This means "As for instance in a ranch neighborhood in order to comply with Downey Municipal Code any potential buyer or developer of the property may only build a structure thereon which is consistent with the "ranch style" of all the other homes."

We also request that any code such as height and square footage be amended to fit this neighborhood code and regardless of other code allowing two stories, any home that is to be remodeled or built must still conform to the code to include 'scale of neighborhood'.

We oppose allowing Mansionization of Downey Neighborhoods as it disrupts the architectural integrity of our neighborhoods which we believe will eventually lower property values, as well as, that it disrupts privacy and a neighborhood's sense of place and well being.
