Latest: Agreement reached to relocate evicted homeless

Source: AP via Yahoo News

After a long court hearing, public officials and homeless advocates have reached an agreement on providing for homeless people who are being evicted from an encampment in a Southern California riverbed.

Orange County officials say they will provide as many as 400 vouchers for monthlong stays in motels and find hundreds more beds where people to stay while social workers seek to help them find permanent housing. The sides agreed that the encampment would be allowed to remain for another week while the homeless are relocated.

U.S. District Judge David O. Carter has temporarily blocked the county from arresting tent-dwellers solely for refusing to move.

The lawsuit is being watched by homeless advocates in West Coast cities and elsewhere amid a rise in homelessness and growth of encampments.

Unfortunately, its not an easy thing to address.

There also are people who just want to be free from rules of society. And there are veterans traumatized that are not able to cope with the rules of engaging society. Or those mentally, physically ill.

I went from having 1000 employees, to being broke and without a home, due to circumstances extraordinary; and I understand how people can get backed into a corner.

Then, I wish, that we could trade the Trump family and his misogynist or pedo buddies, over for Syrian homeless

Wishing they would go away, doesn't solve the problem.

3. This problem is systemic

A month "voucher" is going to do exactly what they need, put the problem off for a month so it can be forgottne, until it comes back worse than it was before. Until this system itself changes, where we say food, housing, and such must be paid for, must require jobs, from landowners and company owners who want ever increasing amoutns of profits, then there will be more hungry, more homeless.

4. Send them all to Mar a Lago

Trump has jobs for them all. He will Make America Great Again.

A simple one way bus ticket is all it takes.
