    Now homeless people from all over the country will invade OC to get the freebies. That's what always happens when you help the homeless.

    There are multimillion dollar housing subdivisions going in around Great Park in Irvine. No I can't see this happening. Laguna Niguel, No. Move them out into the desert.

    Anchorage tried that in the past decade or so; wasn't as great as it sounds on paper. City ended up getting sued by family members of folks who overdosed, a couple kids were killed by stoned/drunk mother/fathers, etc.

    But if a homeless person accepts the free accommodations he would no longer be homeless and thus not qualify for the free accommodations.

    Capitalism manufactures these dispossessed just as it does cars and toothpaste. It's part of the axiomatic. A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia.

    speaking of Orange County


    Orange County and several other cities in California could follow the lead of Los Alamitos and opt out of the state’s controversial law that restricts local cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

    Los Alamitos, the second smallest city in Orange County with a population of 11,500, late Monday rejected the state’s so-called sanctuary law in a vote of 4-1 of the city council.

    Officials with Orange County and the cities of Aliso Viejo and Buena Park reached out to Los Alamitos officials and began publicly expressing support and intentions to take up similar anti-sanctuary language.

    “We are a little city in Orange County, but we’re tired of things coming out of Sacramento that just don’t make sense, and now others are telling us they feel the same way,” said Warren Kusumoto, the Los Alamitos councilman who wrote the anti-sanctuary ordinance.

    In an interview, Kusumoto said he introduced the language opting out of the new state law because he said state officials are “bullying” city leaders into picking sides between following federal or state law.

    Choosing state law over federal law forces local officials to violate their oath of office to defend the U.S. Constitution, he said.
