(Zerohedge.com)-Raising rent prices and low wages have resulted in thousands of people across the city of Los Angeles becoming homeless, many of them now living in cars and RVs if they were able to keep it together that well.

It is such a common issue that many churches have opened up their parking lots to people living out of their cars. For example, the New Beginnings Counseling Center opened up their parking lot for a “Safe Parking program,” which was intended to provide a safe and welcome parking place for people living out of their cars. Unfortunately, under new legislation passed in Los Angeles, programs like this will be illegal, because sleeping in cars and RVs have been entirely outlawed.

No, they have NOT done that in MY county, that is ridiculous, In fact thousands of homeless are getting HOTEL vouchers good for a month.....BS, website is also the one that said illegals can vote in Cali, which is ALSO NOT TRUE...

From your link....




City officials tell KPCC that the new rules are geared toward helping car- and RV-dwellers find appropriate places to post up. Mayor Eric Garretti's homelessness policy director, Alisa Orduna, says the new rules will help service providers connect with people who are living in cars, so that they can offer them vouchers for housing and motel stays.

they really do pass laws criminalizing homelessness in many counties in CA.

Mostly the really wealthy liberal areas, they want the homeless out. Some places even pick them up and move them to another county.

Perhaps the Clooneys of Hollywood will step up and help those poverty-stricken in their own backyard?

More than likely they will start #NotMyParkingLot.

But virtue signal a lot on social media.

It's a shame... if we just move one celebrity a year to the socialist heaven of their choice and use their Made In America money we could feed and house all of these people.

Let a liberal celeb choose to be the first... for the cause!!!!



Edit to Add... Kurt... get in there and help!!!!! (pix needed to believe you... sorry but... reality. ~shrug~)

I agree. This is becoming a zero sum game. And we are, as citizens, allowing it.

Let the ones with the money and the mouths back their ideology up... or shut up.

For the rest of us, let us deny hypocrisy at every level possible and keep pushing, keep working in our own communities, keep helping where we can in local elections and try to influence the bigger ones with our voices.

Saw this on one of my favorite Youtube channels, the Money GPS.

They estimated 7,000 people sleep in their cars in LA? LOL Probably a hell of a lot more than that!

This is similar to those cities that put spikes under bridges and other places that the homeless would normally stay/sleep at.

Draconian rule at its finest... the inhumanity.

south county OC, they want them all in Santa Anna and Garden Grove where you see the videos of the massive encampments.

the homeless problem is so bad that it's disturbing to even live in and around Santa Aanna, Garden Grove and Anaheim.

it was a relief moving out of there. the kick them out of the rich areas like San Clemente and Aliso Viejo and they go there. Same thing in NorCal. Kick em out of the rich areas and they build these huge encampments by freeways and in city halls

The real story.




Los Angeles' new ordinance on living in cars was billed as a boon to homeless people, making it legal for the first time to park and sleep in half the city's streets.

But with the measure set to kick in Feb. 6, a new map suggests the law could trigger a crackdown on some of the city's 28,000 homeless people.

The map, which police will use to enforce the measure, shows only 10% of city streets cleared for car lodging. Other posted restrictions on overnight parking and oversized vehicles are not on the maps, but will be enforced.

One Venice block inadvertently marked safe is actually a canal, accessible by amphibious vehicle only.


The actual ordinance.

The link to the new law has links to the maps showing where people can park to sleep and what not.

Looks like the controversy is the map. It pays to follow the breadcrumbs for the whole story I think.

Yes, and they are helping these people, like your link LA curbed said. They are not just kicking them out, As your OP makes is seem...I live in LA and there happens to be RV parked under a bridge a block and a half from my house in San Fernando Valley, CA....I think I would know, as I follow local news, and there is allot about the homeless right now, and its not against them.

I'm sure Maxine Waters and Polosi have room and would gladly open up their Estate grounds and mansion doors to help. Nancy could even provide the wine from her vineyard in Napa.

No idea. Having lived in California twice in my life, they fine for everything, so I imagine they would hit them with something. Probably take their vehicle from them.

This is not unique to CA and large cities always want to contain the homeless in shelters in specific area's. I doubt it matters some have full time jobs, they don't want them in sight. Politics does not matter either. The homeless are viewed as scum by pretty much all city governments and they only care when it's politically expedient while pandering for votes and pretending to care. They don't care of course, neither the Left or the Right. When you care you help them, neither side ever does.
