Well try this imagine going to an airport wanting to find a place to wait for your flight. The place where you normaly wait before checking in is full of people sleeping everywhere wandering around trying to get free food, using the bathrooms for most anything. The squatters have taken over what normally would have been your place to wait. Not one has paid any taxes or have a job or care to change there way of living for whatever reason.
