Newsom Tries to Appease 'Woke' Voters, Invites More Homeless People to California
'We have a responsibility to accommodate and enliven and inspire'
California Gov. Gavin Newsom vowed to feed and house the world’s homeless population during the “Comeback California” tour, which is attempting to stave off his looming recall in September.
Calfornia is already under massive strain from its current homeless crisis along with the worst economic climates post-COVID-19.
Meanwhile, millions of middle-class residents and business owners are fleeing to red states like Florida to escape crippling taxes.
Gasoline is now also pushing $5 a gallon.
The Atlantic outlined the hostile economic environment of the Democrat-run state: “The California Dream is Dying.”
But Newsom, rather than trying to tackle the problem from the root, instead pledged $12 billion to welcome more homelessness to the state.
"People will be taken care of, and anyone who wants to avail themselves to the California dream is welcome," he said in response to a reporter who asked whether he expected the nation’s homeless to descend upon California with this new expenditure.
“It’s about getting people off the streets, out of incidents of crisis, and meeting people where they are and to the extent that people want to come here for new beginnings and all income levels, that’s part of the California dream,” Newsom said.
“We have a responsibility to accommodate and enliven and inspire, and California’s dream is still alive and well.”
“I’m proud of people from around the world looking at California again for the opportunity, and that, again, that should not just be for certain people.
"All people should aspire to that California dream regardless of their income level and regarding their lot in life.”
California is the highest taxed state in the nation and for the normal working person, buying a home is out of the question.
Newsom failed to mention this and instead pointed to an $80 billion budget surplus to help all achieve the American dream.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva wasn't pleased with what Newsom said:
“As a private citizen, I support the [Newsom] recall,” he said.
Last month, Villanueva cited exploding crime, struggling businesses, and lack of sanitation.
During a press conference inside the Justice Hall on June 23, Villanueva said:
“We’ve been inundated with calls, with concerns, with images from the news, from people picking up the phone, emailing, sending us letters, about what’s going on in Venice."
“And that is a microcosm of what’s going on throughout the entire county of Los Angeles.”
“Enough is enough; we need to kick this into high gear,” he said.
“With the homeless, you have two choices if you’re an elected official: You can get busy helping [or] you get busy hindering, it’s your choice,” he said.
Venice residents who’ve been sounding the alarm for months were also part of the press conference.
Teacher Chie Lunn, and member of the Venice Public Health & Safety Committee, said “there was a huge problem that was growing around us” and that her “children were becoming more and more enclosed," as per The Epoch Times.
