California becomes worlds homeless hotspot thanks to Gavin Newsom

California has officially become the world’s number one hotspot for homeless people, as Gov. Gavin Newsom’s woke policies have resulted in a 67% increase in homelessness since 2019.

As Capradio reports, data was collected by a team of volunteers who “canvassed shelters, streets and encampments countywide” in February.

Thepostmillennial.com reports: The group found that 72 percent of homeless people were found outdoors in tents, vehicles, abandoned buildings, and other such uninhabitable structures. The figures for tents and vehicles were five times higher than in 2019.

Some have speculated that COVID-19 has played a role in exacerbating the crisis, however data from the group shows that most people said they became homeless for the first time prior to the pandemic.

They noted that the results of their survey do not express the true nature of the homelessness crisis facing Sacramento, suggesting that the true number is much higher.

According to another study conducted by the group, as many as 20,000 people will “experience homelessness” in a single year, some constantly, and others on an irregular basis.

In February, Newsom announced $45 million for new “Homekey” projects in Sacramento and Los Angeles, which includes the purchase of a hotel to transform into shelter.

Sacramento and Los Angeles continue to be among the cities in California worst hit by the homelessness crisis, and though money is being poured into solutions, very little is changing.

In Los Angeles, since Prop HHH was passed in 2016 authorizing $1.2 billion for shelter, the number of homeless people has increased.
