Just outside Durango, Colorado, there’s a trailer park called Westside that I’ve been driving by all my life. Yet residents there have long lived with the fear that at any time their homes could be taken from them, and now, the worst has happened.

A few days before Christmas, Westside residents received notice that the 5.6 acres of land, with 60 lots, under their homes was for sale for $5.5 million. The message was in English, and Alejandra Chavez and her neighbors, who mostly speak Spanish and work in service jobs, were devastated.
