Did you read the article? The facilities are ubering them to Lakeland from other cities all across the state. That's the bigger issue.

It’s probably easier for the state to deal with issues, regarding homeless, one at a time, rather than multitasking.

If they are either addicted or mentally ill, there is no place for them to go. This is thanks to the liberals who were afraid that institutionalizing the mentally ill was a violation of their civil rights. How’s it working?
Maybe there is shelter space where you live but not so much in other places...In Sacramento there are 9,200 homeless people and 2,600 shelter beds

California embraces homeless culture and enables the toxic addictions that fuel their homelessness and mental disorders. Not to mention the countless amounts of cash they throw into these homeless programs that just end up going to pensions and unions. It's no surprise.

Speak for yourself,,I for one do NOT embrace the homeless and drug culture,,,I live in California and I will admit I don’t know the solution. At one time Newscum had a tolerable solution but somehow it got done away with.

You have to do better than that if you're casting such aspersions on others who make comments you don't like, otherwise it just looks like projection.

Well, come to think of it........

I just spent 2 weeks in SoCal and drove all around from Chino to Malibu and back. The homeless situation at least in that area has greatly improved from last year when I was last there.

Classic Florida: "Let’s pass a draconian policy but not actually fund the enforcement of said policy, and instead pawn the responsibility off on local government."

If the state thinks it's such a problem, they should fund the solution.

But then they'd have to use all that massive surplus money the governor keeps boasting about, instead of wasting it on busing Texas immigrants to Martha's Vineyard.
