California Town Enforces ‘No-Encampment’ Policy and Has Zero Homeless People

Mayor Richard Bailey
California: Richard Bailey, the Republican Mayor of Coronado, a small town with a population of 20,576 people, has reinforced a no-encampment policy in his city, which now reports the lowest homeless population in the state. He said that “We want to see people get help. And we’re willing to fund reasonable services, shelter spaces that can help accommodate that.” Coronado rejects homeless encampments and other code violations such as being drunk in public or urinating in public or defecating in public. He said that that “what ends up happening is an individual either chooses to get help or they end up leaving.”

Richard Bailey, the mayor of Coronado, has reinforced a no-encampment policy in his city, which now reports the lowest homeless population in the state.

Speaking to Fox News anchor Ashley Strohmier, Bailey discussed the policies that he has put in place in his city and how he avoids the mistakes other California cities are making in regard to the homeless crisis that has taken hold of the state.

“The policies that are in place at the regional and statewide level that are tolerating this type of behavior that is personally destructive and also destructive to the surrounding communities are really enabling this situation to increase throughout our entire state, and throughout our entire region,” said Bailey.

“Changing these policies will actually have a major impact,” he added, speaking from his own experience.

The city of Coronado works closely with the local police force and a homeless service provider to force the homeless population to either get the help they need or move out of the city. They also fund “reasonable” services to help people get “back on their feet.”

“We want to see people get help,” Bailey told Strohmier. “And we’re willing to fund reasonable services, shelter spaces that can help accommodate that.”

However, Bailey has enforced a strict no-tolerance policy for municipal code violations.

“We also make it very clear that we don’t tolerate encampments along our sidewalks, and we don’t tolerate other code violations such as being drunk in public or urinating in public or defecating in public,” Bailey said. “We just simply don’t tolerate these basic code violations. What ends up happening is an individual either chooses to get help or they end up leaving.”

“The fact of the matter is that, although there are a myriad of reasons that people end up homeless, they eventually only fall into two camps – those that want help and those that do not want help,” Baily continued. “And if those that are refusing to get help shouldn’t be granted… the ability to break laws such as tent encampments on the sidewalk or urinating or defecating in public.”

France: Leftist Communists Win Election. New Investigation Against Right-Wing Leader Marine Le Pen

A huge win for the far-right was predicted by polls prior to the election. Conservative Jordan Bardella, 28, claimed that Le Pen’s party had been deprived of victory by an “unnatural alliance” between Macron’s camp and the left. He added, “These agreements have thrown France into the arms of the ­extreme left.”

Most stupid example ever. Coronado is a jam packed rich person island where every square inch is spoken for. There is no where for homeless to encamp and the only way to get there is a long bridge. I am guessing when they do find a homeless person they drive them across the bridge and let San Diego deal with it.
