Hispanics are being discriminated against in their search for rental housing in Oxnard, according to a report authorized by the city. The report, which comes up for hearing April 20, contends that despite the small sampling of rental units, "clear evidence of substantial discrimination" exists. "I was set back," Oxnard Councilman Bedford Pinkard said. "This is 1993. We went through the same thing in 1963. I'm surprised we have not advanced too far."

A Latino rights group has complained to city officials that people being relocated for renovation of an apartment complex are being denied full benefits.

Lopez, executive director of Hermandad Mexicana Nacional.

Four women and one man had squeezed themselves into Dino Hirsch's office, if you could call it that. Actually, they had wedged themselves into a cubicle. These Latino tenants, frightened over an eviction notice, quietly waited while the founder, director and--sole worker--for Inquilinos Unidos (United Renters) flipped through his "files," mounds of paper heaped on top of a metal card table and battered desk. Then Hirsch gave up, sat down and addressed them.

State housing officials said Monday that they will seek criminal charges against the owner of a Pacoima trailer park housing mostly poor Latinos that has been cited 230 times this year for violations of health, safety and building regulations. An assemblyman who toured the crowded facility with state inspectors Monday said its tenants live in "conditions you wouldn't let animals live in."
