    Collapse of Austin into mass homelessness and filth is a warning for all of America:

    Collapse of Austin into mass homelessness and filth is a warning for all of America: This is what Democrats do to everything they control

    (Natural News) Leftist-run cities like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles have been in the news in recent months because of policies that aid and abet homelessness.

    Essentially, these policies focus on the decriminalization aspect of homelessness: Local police and enforcement agencies are no longer empowered to clear streets and keep public areas free of the filth, debris, trash, drug paraphernalia, disease, rodents, and human waste created by masses of humanity.
    But West Coast cities aren’t the only ones who have exacerbated the problem of homelessness in their communities. Now the liberal enclave of Austin in deep red Texas has joined the ranks of cities about to be overrun with filth and chaos.
    As reported by CBS Austin last month, the city council adopted changes to existing ordinances that criminalized panhandling and ‘public camping.’ Specifically:
    Overnight, the Austin City Council voted to approve changes to soliciting, camping, sitting, or lying down laws.
    That means Austin Police will only be allowed to ticket or arrest a person who is soliciting, camping, sitting, or lying in a public space if they are a public health or safety hazard or blocking a walkway.
    “It’s time to decriminalize homelessness in Austin,” said Holly Kirby with the Left-wing group Grassroots Leadership. (Related: Wow: Progressives in Seattle may back conservative who wants to stop doubling down on idiotic homeless policies.)
    The change has upset Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and many Republicans, with the governor vowing to overturn the city’s new changes with a state law that overrides them.

    “If Austin — or any other Texas city — permits camping on city streets it will be yet another local ordinance the State of Texas will override,” the governor posted on Twitter, according to the Austin Statesman. “At some point cities must start putting public safety & common sense first. There are far better solutions for the homeless & citizens.”
    ‘Gov. Abbott, help us!’

    He’s not alone. Austin residents are also rising up as well and pushing back against the new law.
    As NBC affiliate KXAN reported, some fear the changes will embolden homeless people, leading to more aggressive encounters and criminal activity.
    “It is scary to be a woman at times on the street by yourself. We were chased. It’s not pleasant to be so frightened,” one woman who lives downtown told the city council recently, the station reported.
    And, as noted by PJ Media, even liberals are clamoring for conservatives to help them out of the current mess made by city officials.
    City residents are taking to social media to post pictures of camps, homeless squatting, and even fires underneath roadways and interstates:

    Homeless encampment at 290 & Westgate. @MayorAdler this is very concerning. Public health/safety must be a priority. Thank U @Austin_Police for responding quickly. #OneAustin #SaferTogether #PublicSafetyFirst SUPPORT FUNDING 4 First Responders. @GovAbbott please take action.

    The news site reported further:
    The camps and lawlessness are becoming a visible part of the Austin landscape all over the city. Austinites are posting photos on Twitter to alert Mayor Steve Adler — and the media, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and each other — as they see new camps or campers.
    One user — AnnsKitchen_ATX — has been actively posting example after example of how the homeless problem is exploding in Austin. The user name is a spoof on the name of Austin City Councilwoman Ann Kitchen, who voted with Adler and the others to enable homeless camping in public spaces throughout the city — except, of course, City Hall and public parks.

    One user, in response to a tweet from Gov. Abbott about how Texas has become the country’s No. 1 state for business startups, wrote, “Who would want to start a business in Austin TX? Homeless drug users camping on the street. Guess that’s what the mayor and council wants.”
    Homeless encampments are literally popping up everywhere:

    You’re definitely right....but hopefully less than here. Went downstairs to @RoyalBlueATX and in one block there’s THREE #austinhomeless. Most notably this guy right across the street taking a relaxing nap. Thanks to @MayorAdler ordinance there’s no repercussions.

    Just wait till these frustrated citizens learn that Austin still bans homeless camping AT CITY HALL.

    Mayor Adler acknowledged that business owners are concerned about the impact that homeless campers have on business but they shouldn’t consider the City Hall ban hypocritical. https://twitter.com/PhilPrazan/status/1149121813475205120 …

    I wonder how many people like this are out there? #atxcouncil homeless policy has noticeably activated people (like Cleo below), who say they've voted Democrat for years and are digesting the idea of supporting GOP Gov. @GregAbbott_TX on this issue. @KXAN_News #txlege

    Adler said he didn’t think the changes in the ordinance would lead to an explosion of homeless encampments.

    'You're Our Only Hope!': Liberal Austin Cries out for Republicans to Save It from Democrat Homeless Policy

    By Bryan Preston July 17, 2019
    chat 174 comments


    Homeless camp in south Austin, TX.


    Since Austin's liberal policy on homeless camping went into effect on July 1, the big question is how much of an impact would it really have? Was the issue overblown? Would Austin residents see homeless camps pop up all over town or not? And would Austin, woke and weird capital that it is, object to it all?
    The results are in and growing. And if Los Angeles is any guide, they are urgent. Mayor Steve Adler recently traveled to L.A. to "learn" how to handle homelessness from the Democrat-run city. Austin and L.A. both have permissive camping policies.
    Well, L.A. now has a major rat problem.
    An ever-growing number of rodents in California -- particularly in Los Angeles -- is being fueled by a spiking homeless population and restrictions on rodenticides that are risking a public health crisis, according to a study released Tuesday. --
    Rodent's can carry dangerous diseases such as typhus, plague and salmonella, in addition to their roles contributing to asthma.
    Is this Austin's future now?

    Yes, that's a fire burning right under the roadway.

    You'll notice several tweets from the AnnsKitchen_ATX feed. That's a play on the name of Austin city council member Ann Kitchen, who voted along with Mayor Adler to enable homeless camping all over town, except city hall and the public parks. Like Adler and other city council members, Kitchen has largely gone silent on homelessness since approving the permissive camping policy.

    Do watch the video in journalist Phil Prazan's tweet above. I mentioned it in the last missive on this misguided misadventure. It offers a glimmer of hope that Austin may wake up in time to save itself.

    WOW

    That is what Austin gets for ALLOWING the mass exodus from California, and their ideals, head to Austin.

    They bring with them their road rage, their aggression, they take over the housing, drive up the prices, and their Democrap ways. They push people out and there you go!

    The California "transplants" have destroyed Lake Tahoe, Oregon, Las Vegas, North Carolina, Texas, and every city they flock to by the thousands.

    DO NOT WELCOME THEM TO YOUR STATE OR THEIR BUSINESSES.
