Summary This study analyzes the economic challenges and legal issues experienced by Mexicana undocumented renters in the areas of Huntington Park and South Central Los Angeles. This thesis evaluates economic challenges, legal issues, and disparate treatment within code enforcement as it relates to housing conditions for undocumented Mexicana renters. Current literature refers to housing inequalities for poor communities of color, including Latinos/as, however there is an absence of literature focusing on the undocumented Mexicana renter experience. Beginning with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and moving into our current housing crisis, this study found that displacement and disparate treatment continues to exist within the undocumented Mexicana renter's experience.
