....While ILLEGALS are being put-up in $50 Million Resorts

A growing number of cities across the country are making it "illegal to be homeless," according to a new report.
Despite a lack of affordable housing and emergency shelter, many of these communities are implementing laws that ban homeless residents from sitting or lying down in public, loitering, sleeping in vehicles, and begging for money or food.
POLL: Does the Obama Administration treat illegal aliens better than they...
"More cities are choosing to turn the necessary conduct of homeless people into criminal activity," said Maria Foscarinis, executive director of the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty (NLCHP).
The law center has tracked homelessness criminalization laws in 187 cities small and large since 2011.
During that time, city-wide bans on camping in public -- which can include sleeping outside on the streets or in a tent -- have increased 60%.
The number of cities with laws prohibiting or restricting people from sitting or lying down in public has jumped by 43%, and bans on sleeping in vehicles have surged 119%. Meanwhile, laws prohibiting people from begging in public and loitering have climbed more than 20%.

They can house illegals but not homeless.  Given some homeless have problems  the cities passing stupid laws that leaves then nowhere to go.  That is not helping at all.  Jobs will cure so much of what cities are trying to handle.  People take pride in work  without it you have aimless wonders and that is a problem.  Jobs is at least a start.

Obama's puppet masters (neo-cons, banking cabal) are pushing this agenda to arrest the homeless. Soon they will try and convince us to kill the homeless, then they will break our economy causing millions to become homeless so they can have the authority and support to kill even more people. So building bigger jails is not a problem for this socialist agenda.

They already relish the murder of babies so killing the homeless is not a stretch.   We need to turn the tables.

If cities want to make homelessness illegal, then they better get their local "Habitat for Humanity" groups really busy, building "homes for the homeless"!

That's only because the conditions in America have gotten so bad under the OTyrant administration they don't want the evidence of their failures out where everyone can see them.  They should also check to see if the number of homeless individuals and families has increased since he started destroying the country?

after leaving sf, friends told me they surrounded the tenderloin with police and disallowed entry into/ out off while they gathered the homeless into buses - nobody knew at the time where they were all taken; they just left.  Which some may see as good; but, SF had always been lenient regarding; and frankly, it was the gangs not the homeless who would hurt you.  When you started seeing these stories a few years back - it did coincide with when veterans were showing up in larger nos. - and to areas like No. Cal. (weather makes it easier to be homeless) and AZ and GA.  Turns out the initial homeless from SF went to Exit 50 in NV, now hear they are giving them bus rides to OR and other places.  What is shocking is nobody said anything; barely could read it in the news at onset.  Sad that a society is so unaffected by disappearances like this.  ...our monies for society is being rearranged  1) there so tech companies could take over/redevelop the neighborhoods 2) taken from the neediest to redistribute to illegal immigrants - so many of those homeless were vets and with no medical care (psychological especially, most had all their limbs still) afforded to these men/women, they have no place to go/don't fit into "society" any longer , so they're just removed?  Before a place called Agnew State Hospital was taken over by a high-tech company in SJ, it was a campus to house and care for adults who had been born with severe mental retardation:  and the residents were dependent.  I volunteered in the physically abusive ward - those that were head bangers and/or other issues - we had painting classes and played music and they danced and would learn how to ride bikes (tandem) and we'd all climb trees, and all sorts of other fun stuff - but they didn't have a big voting block and therefore, the state didn't need to fund them either  and other lobbying groups wanted that money - s o they shut down the campus and  put many of these people into prisons and psyche wards - none of them were criminal nor had psyche issues - instead Downs Syndrome an other afflictions.  I cried for weeks - these poor citizens; they must have been terrified, and at least, there they had each other; I believe some were functional enough to go into group homes - but most were not - and they got shipped off to a cell somewhere into an existing population who would not be helpful to them; but could actually do them harm.  None of my loonies - I know that sounds politically incorrect now; but back then, they were happy and laughed, "I'm a Looney." (that was what they identified/called themselves proudly as their own little group)  we screen-printed tee-shirts one day for them to all have that said that on the shirts; they were proud when we'd go on outings wearing their hand-made shirts.  Things were different; not so up-tight - we were able to have fun and they were happy for the most part.

This is the problem with all the re-juggling of welfare monies/"those" who for their own purposes are demanding they get theirs for their own group - they don't seem to care who they took that money from.  Before these new groups weren't taking from our taxes so there actually was enough money to take care of those who truly needed the help.  When the others came into to "get theirs" they took it from those who needed it the most.

Very sad, Katherine.  I think, in America, there are very deep-pocketed individuals who would-have gone out of [their] way to help and support, "The Loonies."  I suppose it's a little late for suggestions about that particular group, but there are billion$ of dollar$ in America, just waiting for a cause such as your "group," that could be saved from such tragedy.  The whole scenario of poor, helpless individuals being thrown-away into prisons is heart-wrenching.

The 'Law' is based in REASON, LOGIC and COMMON SENSE.  Outlawing something, like HOMELESSNESS, without providing a viable alternative defies all three.

Progressives are currently making and breaking our laws, Randal, and [they] REALLY don't care!!!  Progressives are now going on the Saul Alinsky warning; once the deception of liberal-ism/communism is discovered in a free-market, Constitutional Republic, all the stops must be forgotten or the movement will be crushed!!!

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
