Trump prepares executive order to criminalize homelessness

The White House is reportedly preparing an executive order to criminalize homelessness. The order reportedly will assign new resources to police departments to remove homeless encampments and even strip housing funds from cities that choose to tolerate these encampments. It’s one of several efforts being steered by the White House’s Domestic Policy Council, the report says.

10 years ago I probably would have thought this was an Onion Article. Some percentage of homeless people are vets. Instead of making it a crime, we should try and help these people. And not the fake help that California does, real help. A company in Texas can apparently 3d print houses for cheap, just subsidize them and we could start combating the problem one step at a time.

Terrible idea. Stop criminalizing behaviors and actions that do not violate others rights. If you want to designate certain areas off limits for public camping fine, bit outlawing people that are just living life is anti-freedom and anti-american.

Wow, making it a crime to be poor? This will help to fill up the "For profit" prisons, and help governments maintain their minimum occupancy requirements of their contracts.

It should be a crime to allow homelessness. the states should be fined for not providing enough affordable houses for these people. First put all the drug users in a rehabilitation clinic to get them clean and then give them a small apartment to start their lives over. Don't let them pay for it and give them benefits, because they will just buy drugs again and not pay their rent. They should have their rent paid for by the council and just get a weekly living allowance and food stamps. as soon as they find a job, put them on a probation period to prove they can pay their Bills and keep clean. They need a rehabilitation officer similar to what they get when they come out of jail until they pass their probation period.

There is a question to be asked, If all the land is owned, what do we do with people that don't own it? What we haven't had in a while is a major conflict to, erm, "cleanse" the lowest class for a while, cause not even the military wants them. I have no solutions.
