Gang violence, child rape, human trafficking would all be drastically reduced if every illegal with a criminal record was imprisoned for the full term of their sentence and then ejected from the country.
But even skipping all those steps, simply enforcing our borders and arresting and removing anyone who illegally enters our country would drastically reduce the drugs streaming into our nation, which IS the root cause of homelessness in California.
Cops know who's on tough times, social services knows who is on tough times, both try to move them back into normalization as fast as possible. That's not 58,000 people who can't find a home in Los Angeles, that's 58,000 who refuse to give up their cheap drugs and comply with society once again.
They can't go to most shelters or enter into most housing programs - if they haven't already been ejected, they'd soon be due to illegal drug use and all the variety of crimes that goes along with it.
We have an illegal problem that sucks billions of dollars of social services, public housing, public education, and public health away from those who need it. We have an illegal problem that floods the streets with hard drugs.
California's newest solution? FREE HEALTHCARE FOR ILLEGALS! Supposedly will only cost a grand per adult... HAHAHHAHA.
That's why all of South America lives behind walls, iron bars and concertina wire.. The law abiding live in their self made prisons and the criminals have the freedom of the streets...
They are going to pay for this by taxing people who dont have health care!
What a farce.
It gets better...only in California
They are going to fine people that can't afford to buy heath insurance...to give free health insurance to illegal aliens.
