California’s homeless population spiked higher than other states over the past year.
The Golden State is where taxes are high, the so-called “safety net” is wide, economic growth is low and anyone who disagrees with leftist orthodoxy is chased off of state-run
It could hardly come as a surprise to anyone who travels around the state: the number of people who are homeless in California continues to rise at a steady clip. Every year, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development releases a Point in Time count of the homeless population. This year that number reached nearly 554,000 — a 1 percent increase from last year, driven by the dramatic surge in West Coast cities.
A state that’s more than $400 billion in debt and has the largest homeless population in the United States.In a now-deleted post, the Retired Orange County Deputy Sheriffs blamed
local officials for it: “Orange County is now a s*** hole country thanks to Sheriff Sandra (Hutchens) and her co-conspirator Don Barnes. According to The New York Times, one in
four homeless people in America — 114,000 in total — live in California. Los Angeles County alone has 55,000 homeless, a number that rose by 13,000 from 2016 to 2017.
More than one-quarter of the total homeless population nationwide lives in California. The vast majority are “unsheltered” — a more bureaucratic term to describe the thousands living on the streets, under freeways and tucked into grassy fields and parks in cities all around the state.
Video footage of a homeless encampment in Orange County, California, has gone ultra-viral after a Facebook page operated by former law enforcement posted stunning scenes of the sanctuary state’s rapid descent into a dystopian “shit hole.” The video was taken by cyclists on the popular Santa Ana River Trail – a bike path that runs from Angel Stadium in Anaheim to the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach. In the span of just a few short years, sections of the trail have transformed from idyllic, family-friendly recreational terrain, to a dangerous causeway commandeered by vagrants, drug addicts and illegal aliens.
Take a look at this video showing the homelessness in Orange County, California. It’s a 10-minute bike ride through one of the largest shantytowns in America:
In addition to the video, the Deputy Sheriffs page added photos from the trail, including a sign forbidding “camping” and “storing of public property.”
