“If they come and they do not qualify to get entry they will flood the area,” said Eduard Gorgan, a protester.
The protest happened in front of the home of LA City Councilman Bob Bluminfields.
In a letter to residents, the councilmember said it was beyond his power to stop the project. He added it is important to get people off of the streets.MORE NEWS: Caught On Camera: Mother, Daughters Working At San Bernardino Taco Stand Attacked
