Bridge Homes will not result in cleaning up the encampments … Legal Aid Foundation

Mayor Eric Garcetti promised cleaning up the encampments as an enticement for communities to accept the Bridge Home concepts in their neighborhoods.  He would commence with increased sanitation and police presence.

El Pueblo — the first Bridge Home — opened in September.  Clean up around where the encampments are or were commenced this past week and Mayor Garcetti got a letter from the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles stating that such enforcement could result in violations of homeless people’s constitutional rights.  

Will Garcetti continue and go to court?
