I believe the reason Milford's housing values have declined so much is because of the enormous influx of illegal aliens and the crime that goes with them.

Why would people want to come here now? The traffic is bad, the town has so many empty buildings, litter everywhere, plenty of crime, plenty of illegal immigrants and their issues.
