In Chicago’s south suburbs, squatters are moving into vacant homes with few consequences. Nilam Patel owns a house in Lansing, Ill. The home was for sale when her realtor found a random woman and her children living inside the property. “I don’t even know where to begin,” Patel said. “It’s crazy. It’s frightening. I have to deal with this all alone because no authority is willing to help.” According to WGN-TV Patel reported the issue to the Lansing Police Department, but nothing happened. Police told her it was a “civil issue” and she’d have to go through the proper channels to evict the woman from the home. She is getting away with it for now but sooner or later this extravagant piece of excrement will find a new home called jail.
