to connectVideoLeft Behind the Homeless Crisis in Los Angeles
On a tour of Los Angeles, Fox News is a witness to the failed policies of the government, which has led to decades of neglect and mismanagement boosted the city’s homeless crisis.
In the summer of 2019 at the latest, on Fox News, embarked on an ambitious project to chronicle the toll that progressive policies have had on the homeless crisis in four West Coast cities: Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, and Portland, Ore. In each and every city, we noticed a lack of safety and security, health and safety standards, and ethics. The people, the homeless, and advocates say they have lost faith in their elected representatives and by the ability of the problem to be solved. Most cities and towns have thrown hundreds of millions of dollars at the problem, just to look at it, it would be even worse. This is what we saw in Los Angeles, california.
LOS ANGELES-It was the very smell of booze and human waste that hits you. It is the visual row after row of filthy tarp, the tents crammed together on the sidewalk, next to piles of rotting rubbish and broken equipment. There are half-clothed, drugs are the shells of people wandering aimlessly in the middle of the street. Some of the damn cars. Others are staring at you. There have been fights, prostitution, and the dens of the rodents. This is the legendary Skid Row in Los Angeles, and it was a disaster.
Just like a number of West Coast towns of Fox News, visited Los Angeles, Los Angeles, is coping with the homeless crisis. However, in contrast to the east coast, LA is not able to hide all of the homeless people in shelters and low-income groups.

The failed, liberal policies, coupled with decades of neglect and mis-management have turned to an old problem in a modern action. Some fear that the City of Angels to the point of no return, and anger at the elected officials who are talking a big game, but rarely deliver.
“I don’t want to see them on the camera, and it’s not,” Marquesha Babers, who has lived on Skid Row as a teenager, he told Fox News. “I do not want to write any more articles about how much or how many of them try to work things out. I would like to see them do it.”
THE LA TIMES COLUMNIST, REFERS TO THE CITY LEADERS FOR NOT ADDRESSING THE HOMELESS CRISIS
Across the country, officials have long complained about the horrors of living homeless on the streets, while failing to pass meaningful legislation. Homeless advocates have accused that the cost of using the crisis for their own political ambitions and the manipulation of the environment, which will enable them to make the most of the responsibility.
“One of the best that we can to get them elected in order to deal with the problems of his sound bites,” Bill White, the founder of the Los Angeles Community Action Network, told Fox News. “Sound bites that say,” this is a humanitarian crisis, “and that” we need to do something only to find out that something, or nothing, or do to criminalization.”

California accounts for the majority of the country’s homeless population. In spite of throwing hundreds of millions of dollars at the problem, the number of homeless people in Los Angeles County have risen for the third time in four years. The most recent census to be released in June by the Los Angeles County Homeless Services Authority (fsa) shows that there are nearly 60,000 homeless people with no shelter on any given night. In the city of Los Angeles, california, in the number of homeless people in 2019, a jump from 16 per cent to 36,000, while the number of chronically homeless people — those of you who have been living on the streets for more than a year rose by 17 per cent. At least three-fourths of the city’s homeless population, it is dangerous.
The sobering statistics will come after the two voter-approved tax hikes and a $619-million effort last year to tackle the problem through social services and the new housing.
With the recent increase in the number of prompted a dramatic press releases, labored editorials, and a ton of finger pointing by elected officials. The merry-go-round of debt of local government officials claim that the state is not doing enough. California’s governor, said that Washington is to blame for cutting federal funds, and the President, He responded by taking aim at the Democrats’ executive skills.
“Spain is a disgrace to our country,” He said during a campaign, the August rally in Ohio. “It’s a real shame. The world is looking for it. Take a look at Los Angeles, with the tents and the terrible, horrible disgusting conditions.”

Various Angelenos, Fox News said it once and will say that they are frustrated with the pace of progress has been made.
“It looks like it’s going to get worse and worse, and not better than that,” Whitney’s Case, an employee at a coffee shop in the heart of los angeles, told Fox News. “We have been hearing the same thing over many years.”

Things had to change in November, when the Democratic party in California, has scored the trifecta of the law, wins: of the two houses of the government, and the governor. Two-thirds of the votes cast, is likely the place of and Gov. Gavin Newsom’s pledge to make housing a priority, there was optimism in the air. That ended when the Democrats were on the same page, and to the legislation that would have increased, and the condition of the housing stock. They also made another high-profile measure that would increase the residential development in the vicinity of the transit, and the strops are in a single family neighbourhood.
The other errors were due to the division among the special interest groups, and a hands-off approach from the governor-even though he denies it.
Babers, who has lived on Skid Row when she was 15, said she feels it is being used by government officials trying to score political points, and the lip-service, and academy award-worthy to us to be able to have the cameras rolling in order to come to an end.

The political theater was on full display in June during a press conference on the south steps of City Hall. The photo-op and a presser was pitched to Fox News and we were told that the city is finally going to start to get serious about its spiraling debt crisis. However, instead of the address of one of the worst disasters in the nation’s history, the members of the board take turns mugging for the cameras and bashing Later.
A mile away, in between, the dirty needles, broken bottles, and White says he’s frustrated, but not surprised.
There’s even an in-joke among the homeless living in downtown LA. They mock the elected officials who claim to be speechless at how “shocked” they are, due to the increase in homelessness and the deterioration of the conditions of the road.
“They are in shock! Shocked!” to a woman on Skid Row and said, exasperatedly, channeling Captain Renault of “Casablanca.” “Why are they shocked? We’ve been here the whole time. They are the ones who don’t come down here.”
Why are they shocked? We’ve been here the whole time. They are the ones who don’t come down here.

However, there have been homeless camps are popping up on the highways and in tunnels, with the largest concentration of los angeles ‘ dangerous population of Skid Row home. In the centre of the area, memorialized in movies such as “The Sting” and “The Little Shop of Horrors”, as it is a last resort and for the winos, and junkies, has long been a dumping ground for the hospitals, the prisons, and in other towns, cities and states are looking to solve their homelessness. Today, the roughly 50-block district just east of the city centre, it is a dystopian view of the human misery, where a vacant-eyed residents shuffle in and out of their impromptu hiding-places, among the broken chairs, discarded syringes, garbage and human waste. The unhygienic conditions have been changed into a veritable petri dish of disease that is ripe for a rodent infestation.

It’s gotten so bad that Newsom spent in 2019 and the State of the state Address.
“Our homeless crisis is increasingly becoming a public health crisis,” Newsom said. “Last year, there was a hepatitis A outbreak in San Diego, california. Recently, there was an outbreak of syphilis in Sonoma. And now, of typhoid fever, in Los Angeles, california. Typhoid fever. This is a medieval disease. In California, Usa. In 2019 at the latest.”

The Democratic mayor, who was on the court for a 2020 presidential run and was under scrutiny for not handling the homeless problem, with enough of a sense of urgency. His office has announced plans in 2018, is to build 15 centres, but we had gotten off to a slow start. In 2016, the voters approved Proposition HHH), a $1.2 billion bond to build 10,000 houses for the homeless, but so far, only a handful of them have been opened. The two-term mayor, however, argued that the crisis would be much worse without his leadership.
However, not everyone is convinced.
