Federal prosecutors are seeking to shut down a mobile home park on the Torres-Martinez Reservation in California.

The park sits on land allotted to an individual Indian. It is home to approximately 2,000 to 4,000 migrant workers and reportedly includes a at least two used-car lots, a market, a restaurant and a financing business.

The U.S. Attorney's office alleges the park is an environmental and health hazard. They say landowner Harvey Duro and other operators didn't receive approval from the Department of Interior.
