They need to clean up the big cities in California instead of trying to make it a safe haven for illegals. Take care of your own citizens first California. Legal immigrants no problem, they are good for society if they are civil. But nobody vetts the illegals to make sure they are not criminals or a burden on society.

I am glad someone has the guts to challenge the homeless mess that is in California, their own government does little to address the problem. At least they could make a big campground with bus service outside of the city so these people can live in tents there, with proper toilet facilities. Right now the illegals being held at the border have it better than the homeless people living in the big cities of California. Then the Liberals complain about inhumane treatment of the people in those camps who have it better than the street people in their own city do.

Consider Gavin Newsome, the governor. Insanely out of touch.
He may as well be on another planet

This is a day after Trump denied their ballsy request for more funds to battle homelessness. He's spot on with his criticisms, their arrogance is unbelievable.

Trump administration rejects CA effort to obtain more funds to fight homelessness

Ben Carson was in L.A to deliver the news-


"Your letter seeks more Federal dollars for California from hardworking American taxpayers but fails to admit that your State and local policies have played a major role in creating the current crisis," Carson wrote in a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom and other officials. "Instead of protecting the most vulnerable Americans from the economic impacts of illegal immigration, California has doubled down on sanctuary State and city policies and provided benefits to illegal and inadmissible aliens."


Thumbing your nose at the Federal government then asking for more money - Newsome's more full of crap than SF's streets.

There are many reasons for the homelessness epidemic -- chiefly a lack of affordable housing --...


The main reason for homelessness is mental illness which our country does very little to address.

You know what chaps my ass about this whole homeless issue? A few years back now, a non-profit group I was involved with was trying to get a new mountain bike trail built in our local area. It was a simple single track using recognized IMBA building standards to ensure sound, minimal environmental impact. You know where that went? NO WHERE! Blocked at every step of the way. It was deemed "too damaging to the environment, threat to the local watershed, etc."

Lets add one more BS scenario of being unable to get things done due to environmental restrictions; we have a smallish creek that runs behind our housing development. The last big El Nino rains flooded the creek causing massive bank erosion encroaching upon two units to the point they were in danger of falling into the creek. The HOA couldn't do a thing about shoring up the bank and protecting the houses. (Luckily the houses didn't fall victim to the erosion.) The root cause was Cal Trans work several years before that removed the rip-rap boulders that were put into place to protect against just such erosion events. We tried to follow "procedures" to fix the erosion issue. Do you have ANY idea HOW many governmental agencies become involved in a waterway? Mind boggling and all related to EPA restrictions. We ended up having to sue Cal-Trans for damages and a special exemption for repairs. In the end it STILL took over a year to fix and cost the HOA over $150k to make the repairs.

Another example of madness-; a huge homeless camp in town was closed and the occupants blown to the wind. (Read surrounding neighborhoods, freeway medians and the local beaches.) The freeway median campers have completely de-nuded the median of all plant foliage, made huge bench cuts into the hill side and the area has become a de-facto trash dump. Absolute destruction, yet no talk of the environmental effects.

Lastly, now there are permanent campers on the beach at the "Boardwalk." The Boardwalk is our cities/counties biggest tourism draw. Where do you think these people go to the bathroom? Where do all the heroin needles go? You got it...in the sand. More ecological damage and nothing seemingly being done about it other than to say the beaches are now closed from sunset to sunrise.

I'm just feed up with the nonsense and double standards. Since the homeless don't have much to offer in return (read financial resources), they get the free pass. You know what would happen to me if I tried to sleep on that same beach with my tent? A nice fat $500 fine and immediate removal from said beach.

Anyway, that's my fed up with the BS rant....

It's a bold move, but the CA politicians have let the problem get out of hand. And, let's face it. So-called "progressives" really don't know HOW to solve problems.

That's why they scream for more taxpayer money, but they don't have a clue how to manage it.

They set up 501(c)3's and other charities, not to mention Big Gov't Programs, but most of the money they receive goes to their "administrative" fees, salaries for cronies, travel expenses, etc. It's a scam.

I think that's why they jump up on their crazy liberal bandwagon and shout insanely stupid things. It takes the focus off the real fact that they just don't know how to solve real problems.

They are emotionally driven mental lightweights, clueless when it comes to solutions-oriented processes.

Years ago, they sent people with mental illness to live in a sanatarium.

Now they closed most of those places and people wonder why nutbags are crapping on the sidewalks.
Sometimes mainstreaming isn't all that it's cracked up to be.

He so humanely said the other day that the homeless have brought down the prestige of the areas.

He actually said that.
Thats the important issue with homelessness. Not the homeless themselves just property value.

Like we all should be living in glass towers.
His idea of middle class is using paper napkins.
While he eats chef prepared foods.

When your city creates a phone app to help resident avoid poo on the streets, it's hard to argue you don't have an image problem.

Did Obama send in anyone? Bush? Clinton? Nope. They simply kept sending money and where has that gone? The reason politicians hate Trump is he is not a blank check. He wants results.

It is sad that Californias political leadership had left behind these American citizens but want to fund illegal immigrants college for free.

They have been violating immigration laws for years and nothing. Now I'm supposed to believe hes worried about pollution laws?


Feces and plastic syringes are pollution under EPA rules.

Its a genius move, especially since California wants more money.

www.dhcs.ca.gov... they get mental health funding from property tax (by repealing old prop 13 from 1973),my dad actually helped get it passed before we moved to montana. as an example my parents old house property taxes before this was 700 now its close to 40k a year so yeah they allready have funding on paper for mental health funds its if they actually use it for it or siphon it off to other areas

www.healthaffairs.org...

California passed proposition 63, a landmark piece of mental health and fiscal legislation, in the November 2004 election. California has a long history of using the initiative process to pass laws that are often controversial and influence the rest of the nation. In 1911 California amended its constitution and allowed voters to bypass the legislative branch and directly place measures on the ballot through initiatives. 1 Of the 303 initiatives that qualified for the ballot since 1911, 104 were approved. 2 The first initiative that affected taxes was Proposition 10 (1914), which abolished the poll tax. Perhaps the best-known initiative is Proposition 13 (1978), which limited property taxes in California and is credited as beginning the anti-tax sentiment of the 1980s. 3

It was a jab at the people running the state, who have decided that Illegal immigrants takes precedence over their own homeless. Because they really don't care about poor people, or people down on their luck. They just want to continue creating their gerrymandered state.

well a few years ago brown wanted to put them all on cruise ships in the bay and that failed,and for years they have been giving homeless people one way tickets to hawaii to get rid of some of them but skidrow for example has been a dump since the 90s and early 2000's at least

yeah and people that say this is another "evil move" by trump should be happy he dosent try to have it declared a superfund site due to the poop and syringes and general waste that comes with homeless populations that would really kill the property values,although as bad as it is i dunno if it would meet the criteria.
