"Thousands of people in the city of Miami live like Morales, in homes absentee landlords have illegally converted into mini-motels, turning them into lucrative businesses...But now, after decades of the city turning a blind eye to the problem, Mayor Manny Diaz is engineering a serious crackdown on illegal units and crumbling homes.He said he is taking the matter seriously, even though it's a politically unpopular move, because he wants to clean up decaying parts of the city...The crackdown comes as part of Diaz's attempt to revitalize a city that suffered for years from financial problems and a reputation for corruption and strife."
