Criminalizing Homelessness In California
Leaders of many cities refer to a nebulous "homeless problem." And it appears the solution for some cities is to make being homeless a crime.
The Policy Advocacy Clinic at the University of California-Berkeley just released a research report about the increase of laws criminalizing homelessness across California.
The authors say the report shows California cities engaging in the practice more than cities in other states.
Reps from the clinic and the Western Regional Advocacy Project join us with details.
