Clearly, Santa Ana's attempt to limit occupancy cannot stand. As The Times editorial ("How Many Is Too Much," June 1) correctly pointed out, Santa Ana and other California cities are "reeling from population increases caused by immigration."
This does not free city government from the responsibility of providing each and every resident with clean, safe, sanitary housing. Oh, I know, there isn't enough money to keep the street paved or pick up the trash. But, by golly, we can't expect residents to be responsible for their own housing.
