Councilmembers Act to stop Cities from Pushing Homeless into Neighboring Communities

The influx in Venice is not from neighboring cities but from other states. No one is from California, much less Venice. Our City officials refuse to recognize this situation. How do you keep people from other states from coming in and using the facilities that California has provided? It is beyond weather. This is a never-ending situation unless the flow is stopped… Reta Moser

(LOS ANGELES) – Los Angeles City Councilmembers Mike Bonin and Joe Buscaino took action today to stop neighboring cities from pushing people experiencing homelessness into Los Angeles neighborhoods.

In a motion submitted today, the two councilmembers are asking the Los Angeles City Attorney to report to the council on what legal steps Los Angeles can take to compel other municipalities in the region to comply with court rulings regarding the enforcement of anti-camping laws. The enforcement of unconstitutional laws by neighboring cities is commonly used to push people experiencing homelessness out of a town and across the border into Los Angeles.

“It is maddening to hear reports from unhoused neighbors about how they are forbidden by police in neighboring cities from sleeping on sidewalks there and are directed to Los Angeles sidewalks,” said Bonin. “This is unfair and unjust and results in neighbors in LA being asked to bear the burden of solving homelessness for the entire region. Homelessness is not a problem that can be solved by pushing people into another neighborhood. We need to be on the same page as our neighbors and working collaboratively and collectively toward sustainable solutions to this urgent crisis.”

    You’re a loser Miller Brody. The planter boxes are the only reason my child can walk to school without stepping on a needle and getting Hepatitis or HIV.

    It’s really sad that because you’re lacking internal happiness, you feel you have to defend bad policies that create third world living conditions and pestilence (typhus is back from the Middle Ages and all over LA because of all the rats and homeless excrement). Nice going dude.

      The only thing sad here are all of you fear mongering gentrifiers who aren’t doing a damned thing to ease the homeless criis in this city but push people around from one sidewalk to another. People like you are the problem around here lady. And if you ever get out of that bubble you’re living in you’ll know exactly why I am taking this disrepecful tone of voice with you. You’re all nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. Those planters are solving nothing. They’re just pushing people around like trash. But that’s what people like you want, right ? It makes you feel all morally superior to all of those people on the sidewalk if you can make their lives more miserable than they already are. Doesn’t it you poor excuse for a human being ?

    Miller Brody You are the problem if you don’t even listen to what the homeless say. Here, I will make it easy for you just click onto the link and listen to what this homeless person has to say. He didn’t mention any planter boxes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qPIQ-hACWA

    What a bunch of hypocrites! More Bullshit from Mike Bonin! With selective ticketing the LAPD also pushes the homeless all over Venice to 3rd between Sunset and Rose. The LAPD is pushing the homeless onto 3rd to have 24/7 surveillance on them by Google’s CCTV Cameras. This increases the crime and pollution for the 100’s of residents that live just across the street on Rose, 3rd and Sunset. Listen to the homeless guy tell his story about how LAPD will throw him in Jail if he doesn’t camp on 3rd.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qPIQ-hACWA

      The only hypocrites here are you and Reta Moser Rick. You two know damned well that the real reason for all of these homeless people shuffling around is because of Mark Ryavec’s planters. A pox on all of your houses. None of you are part of the solutions. You’re all part of the problem.

    Bonin has been adamant for several years now that the homeless in Venice are from Venice. Why the change of story, Bonin? Did you suddenly realize that your ass is on the line? LOL

    Bonin is a liar. He created the full page national advertisement for all poor and homeless to come to LA and Venice to take advantage of the lax enforcement and available free services.

    Now, just as we predicted, Bonin and Garcetti are gonna hang for it. They’ve duped us into HHH and spending 2 billion and all that money is corruptly just being funneled to their cronies in social services mafia and developers.

  6. The Truth

    You’re not from California either. You’re from Virginia.
