Sounds the sort of thing Trump would do - demonising the poor is his thing.

We had a Trump supporter suggesting poor people should not be able to vote.

But only within the city limits, can't have all those hunters and campers disadvantaged, but then what about backyard sleep outs?

A lot of people were disappointed that homelessness was not mentioned in the last debate in CA, Los Angeles yet which has the worst homeless problem of any city in the US as I understand. The governor had talked about it in depth the day before.
So as far as I'm concerned the Democrats are dropping the ball and Trump is picking it up for better or worse. The homeless problem should be front and center on any candidate's platform.

Oh that is probably ok, Kaygee - homelessness is ok as long as it is shoved out of sight where we don't have to see it.
Then we can pretend it doesn't exist and we don't have to worry about it.

So anyone sleeping on the streets will be arrested, taken to a cell and given shelter and hot food? Problem solved!

Trump plans to criminalise the homeless when he should be thinking there but for the grace of a good lawyer go I.

That man sickens me .

no, not problem solved.:S

Forcibly taking homeless people and putting them in cells like criminals??? - beyond me how anyone can be in favour of that.

The easy way to get rid of the homeless-problem:

take away their rights like voting, and take away their humans-rights, arrest them, put them in a cell on water and bread until there are enough to be chained and send them to work, like to build a wall between Mexico and the US.

They could use the children locked up there too, after all, they could do something for their food!

This would not be so hard to arrange, after all, the country had enough practice with a certain group of people kept as unfree labourers...(aint that a diplomatic statement?)

The problem is, of course, that people are homeless for various reasons, so they can't all be treated in the same way. I still think anyone who is genuinely homeless should be forced into a hostel. There they can be assessed and each case dealt with separately.

All this shock, horror attitude achieves nothing. Something practical needs to be done. Vagrancy used to be illegal, here in Britain anyway, so Trump's plan is nothing new. There are also itinerant workers, at least they were prepared to work for a crust instead of expecting hand-outs.
