Newsom: Out-of-state homeless welcome to ‘new beginnings’ in California

Gavin Newsom must really hate the families of California, the businesses and his office.  Instead of trying to solve the homeless problem, caused mostly by government policy, he wants the homeless of the nation to feel welcomed here and live off the remaining productive people of the State.

“California Gov. Gavin Newsom says he‘s not worried about a bill meant to combat homelessness exacerbating the problem because the state embraces everyone looking for “new beginnings.”

The Democrat made the comment when asked about the possible unintended consequences of signing the $12 billion AB-140 housing bill. Officials are required to “develop a framework for the California Dream For All Program, the goals of which would … [make] homeownership more affordable.”

“To the extent that people want to come here for new beginnings and all income levels, that’s part of the California dream and we have a responsibility to accommodate and enliven and inspire, and the California dream is still alive and well,” Mr. Newsom said Monday when asked if the Golden State — mired in a homeless crisis — might become a magnet for similar out-of-state populations.

Newsom has already made California the Mecca for illegal aliens.  Now the homeless.  Any wonder productive people are fleeing the State—between the homeless, the illegal aliens and the criminals, there is no place left in California for decent people.

Newsom: Out-of-state homeless welcome to ‘new beginnings’ in California

Democrat doesn’t fear unintended consequences of housing bill: ‘We have a responsibility to … inspire’

By Douglas Ernst – The Washington Times, 7/21/21   

California Gov. Gavin Newsom says he‘s not worried about a bill meant to combat homelessness exacerbating the problem because the state embraces everyone looking for “new beginnings.”

The Democrat made the comment when asked about the possible unintended consequences of signing the $12 billion AB-140 housing bill. Officials are required to “develop a framework for the California Dream For All Program, the goals of which would … [make] homeownership more affordable.”

“To the extent that people want to come here for new beginnings and all income levels, that’s part of the California dream and we have a responsibility to accommodate and enliven and inspire, and the California dream is still alive and well,” Mr. Newsom said Monday when asked if the Golden State — mired in a homeless crisis — might become a magnet for similar out-of-state populations.

Kevin Faulconer, a Republican vying to unseat the governor in the state’s upcoming recall election, was flabbergasted at the statement. 

“This is crazy,” Mr. Faulconer tweeted, a local ABC affiliate reported. “I have incredible compassion for homeless Californians. But no, we should not be encouraging homeless people from other parts of the country to move to California.”

Mr. Newsom signed the bill Monday in Sonoma County as part of his California Comeback Plan.

  1. Hey, that means more homeless people can replace those of us that left that state. I know quite a few people that were born and raised in CA, some for generations, that are gone and never going back. Especially once you learn that a lot of states aren’t flooded with crime, friendly to firearm owners and full of like minded people; California becomes a distant nightmare…. Or maybe a freakshow I now read about. A cancerous one, however, as I warn others here that they don’t want to become that state.

    It is time to just leave CA, by any means (it took a lot of life changes for us to do it, and uncertainty) and focus the caring one has for their home on a state that can still be protected or saved. CA can’t. It is already a train wreck. We aren’t watching the wreck happen, we are just processing the sheer magnitude of the damage.

    Some 20 years ago, California was sending vouchers to other states encouraging them to send us their homeless. And they did, while local newspaper editorials proudly proclaimed the benevolence of the great state of California. And so here we are. The biggest surprise is that anyone’s surprised at the current state of the homeless problem in California, just as they’re surprised and dismayed at the influx of illegals pouring in. Wise up! “Elections have consequences” has more meaning than ever this year, starting with the Recall. VOTE!

  3. How many times can I scream: RECALL THE A$$HOLE!!

  4. Ronni and Anziani I understand your frustrations however voters in the State of Calif registered for the most part as members of the Democratic Party absolutely either do not believe or do not understand that the Democratic Party was taken over by the Communist Party many years ago and they actually believe as the faithful lemmings they have become that a good comrade always votes for evil.

  5. After Gruesome Greasy Hair gets recalled would some medical person confine him to whatever State Hospital mental facility is left. I say 20 years could possibly “cure” him of insanity. I agree with Anziani, the man is also a World class A$$hole!
