However, one Californian city has chosen to defy this pattern. Coronado now records the lowest rate of homelessness inside the Golden State under Republican Mayor Richard Bailey.
In an interview with “Fox & Friends First,” Bailey described how his city has no homeless people at all. He specifically emphasized how his government implemented its no-encampment rule while upholding the law.
“The rules that are in place at the regional and state level that are permitting this type of behavior that is individually detrimental and also destructive to the surrounding communities are really encouraging this issue to increase throughout our entire area,” Bailey stated to Ashley Strohmier.
He continued, “Changing these policies will truly have a significant impact.”
In order to help the homeless get off the streets, the city of Coronado is working with the police department and a provider of services for the homeless, according to Bailey.
“We also make it very plain that we don’t accept encampments on our sidewalks, and we don’t tolerate other code violations like being intoxicated in public or urinating or defecating in public,” according to Bailey. “We simply don’t accept these fundamental code infractions. In the end, a person either decides to seek assistance or decides to leave.”
According to information from the Task Force of San Diego Regional on Homelessness, Coronado only had one homeless individual. According to Bailey, this homeless individual was able to get the assistance they required and is no longer tarnishing Coronado’s streets.
“The reality is that, despite the numerous factors that contribute to homelessness, people ultimately fall into two groups: those who want assistance and those who do not,” Bailey said. “And the people who are unwilling to obtain help… shouldn’t be given further permission to break laws like setting up tent cities on the sidewalk or peeing or defecating in public,” the statement continued.
“We must enforce these laws so that they can eventually join the other camp and receive assistance,” he continued.
California budgeted $10 billion to solve the homelessness epidemic between 2018 and 2021. According to Fox News, 30% of the US’s homeless people are still living in California, despite the state’s government spending a significant amount of money to address the homelessness epidemic.
The burgeoning homelessness epidemic in America cannot, in fact, be solved by coddling. These folks ultimately require assistance from the local governments and civil society who are prepared to help them recover. To further assure that fewer individuals end up on the streets, the US must address its housing affordability policies and reform its mental health facilities.

California will eventually make anyone of everyone poor, just pay all the taxes and programs they incorporate!
Soon they may pay 640 Billion with a “B” for alleged slave reparations in a state that never had slavery! Who will and how will that be paid for?
The truth be known, the democrat thieves in California are not spending billions on the homeless, they are pocketing the taxpayer’s money and claiming that it is being spent on the homeless! It is all scams and boondoggles just as the so-called bullet train money they are pocketing!
Where do these comments go? Other than to ourselves?
Government is corrupt. Big Time? Where are the prison. They belong in.
