Plenty of homes for those who can afford 2-5k a month in rent. Tents for those who cannot.

Not only true in San Diego, but all over California. Redevelopment, Urban Renewal, and other programs that gave billions to real estate and development companies are one cause. They built thousands of luxury units and a few “senior” apartments that quickly became occupied by seniors from other countries who were “political refugees.” Not many Americans in these places, full of old people from around the world who never worked a day in their lives in the U.S., but now on the dole, getting eternal payments from Uncle Sam. The politicians in Washington forgot who put them in office, forgot about our U.S. born seniors who worked their whole lives here and paid taxes, forgot about our injured veterans, forgot about their responsibility to us, not to some senior from Eastern Europe or the Middle East, of which hundreds of thousands occupy the so-called low income senior centers. Don’t believe me? I would be happy to send you to some of these in L.A., see for yourself. A big secret nobody ever wants to discuss.
Huge immigration, legal and illegal, without any planning also added to the problem. No, we don’t need any more “refugees” or immigrants until the government cleans up the mess that they have helped to create. If anyone, from any country, wants to come to the United States, they should be able to pay an entrance fee of $250,000 per person and prove they can support themselves for 10 years. The money goes to build low cost housing for the millions of OUR displaced persons living on the streets. If the rich politicians in Washington want to bring in more “refugees” then let them personally pay the $250,000. My prediction is that not even one would come in under that stipulation.
Too harsh? The situation has led to a class war and a government movement to criminalize poverty. Look at the so-called laws now being passed. Illegal to be poor, illegal to sleep on a bench, illegal to feed hungry folks, illegal to give a homeless person a free haircut, illegal to feed hungry folks in a park, illegal to sleep in a tent on public property, illegal to sleep in your vehicle, in L.A. illegal to have a pillow in your car says new “Goofy Garcetti” law. Huge “encampment sweeps” around the country, taking tents and sleeping bags from homeless folks to the dump, trashing private property of homeless, in some cities “rounding up” homeless people and moving them out to some desolate “camp” with orders not to return to the city. On and on it goes, and every one of the items above have been published on this website. It’s a brutal class war on the poor. Even students now suffering. Think about it.
