Mobile home residents forced to leave
Last Christmas, residents of the El Portal Mobile Home Park near Yosemite were asked to leave there homes with only a few weeks notice and zero compensation even though they owned their homes.
The land the homes were on, however, belong to the National Park Service, which residents were paying rent to for years.
The park service claimed that the power lines connected to the homes were outdated and potentially dangerous so instead of repairing them, residents were told the mobile home park was being shut down.
Carmen Kohlruss and I were there to document the last day residents could stay before the power was shut off.
