South Gate Residents Protest Downey Homeless Project Close To Their Neighborhood

DOWNEY – South Gate residents were protesting in Downey on Saturday over Downey putting in a veterans transitional housing project on Downey property.

There are no Downey neighborhoods close by, but a South Gate neighborhood is across the street.

Protesters view this project as a second homeless housing project.

“I think South Gate has got a little uptight about this idea of a homeless shelter. It’s not a homeless shelter,” said Downey Mayor Pro Tem Rick Rodriguez.

South Gaters don’t want what they see as a homeless shelter on their border while Rodriguez sees it as a vital resource for veterans who need some help.
