Portland to Put Homeless People in Homeowners' Backyards
Portland to Put Homeless People in Homeowners’ Backyards
Cristina Laila Mar 20th, 2017 2:55 pm
The Democrat utopia of Portland, Oregon is facing an intractable homeless problem. The government is looking to solve the homelessness by offering tiny, government-constructed modular units in the backyards of willing homeowners.
According to Daily Mail:
Portland officials are looking for four backyards to place its Accessory Dwelling Units, what some people may call a granny flat, or a tiny home minus wheels.Another brilliant idea by the Democrats who have utterly destroyed Oregon! Oregon used to have a flourishing timber industry until the liberals from San Francisco traveled up there and infected the place. Follow the money trail on this project. This is just another expensive experiment by liberals that will end up making the situation worse while lining the pockets of government insiders.
Under the pilot program taking effect this summer, the homeowners will take over the heated, fully plumbed tiny houses in five years and can use them for rental income.
The project, called A Place for You, is believed to be the first in the nation to recruit stable residents to address a homeless crisis that’s gotten so bad the city last year declared a state of emergency and made it legal to sleep on the street.
Residents just passed a $260 million housing bond, but it will be two years before those units are ready, said Mary Li, director of Multnomah County’s new Idea Lab, which developed the concept.
About 200 homeowners have signed up to learn more after Multnomah County’s project was first made public this week by the city’s alternative weekly paper.
Putting homeless people inside neighborhoods of functioning, working, tax paying people makes so much sense. I’m sure the housing prices won’t be affected by this at all. Can you imagine trying to sell your house while your neighborhood is filled with homeless people living in the backyards?

Over the last decade and a half, this is the result of millions of illegals and refugees that should not be here and what it has done to a multitude of our American citizens - jobless, some drug/alcohol, some mental instabilities, some just despaired from the trauma of living costs and no work available to them ongoing year after year.
You don't see the illegals and refugees out on the street, they have apartments, social services and monies for the refugees, enough that they actually travel back to their country to visit and now want their rent to be paid by us while they are gone for a couple of months. The illegals' baby booms on our dollar could be spent on our needy instead; the healthcare, schooling costs are tremendous.

It's a national disgrace, what is happening to the United States is one of the greatest saddest tragedies in world history.

You do not see illegals on the streets because they stuff 20 people into one Single Family Home. Then they have RV's, campers on the street and in the driveway, most are stolen and the cops should start running the VIN Numbers on them. Vehicle theft a Felony...a reason to deport them. The houses and neighborhoods are trashed. They live like rats surrounded by piles of garbage, the videos are truly unbelievable.
Need to drop Pelosi, Schumer, McCain, Ryan and Warren off in these neighborhoods and make them find their way out. Drop every one of them on the open border bandwagon...separately in these cesspools by THEMSELVES and scare the life out of them.

This is really scary, because if this is a solution to homelessness, then it is a housing standard and could easily be applied to the current voucher program. I am already hearing other murmurs from local governments saying they are talking about vouchers to solve the homeless problem and I'll bet the two are linked.
This plausibly means that those currently in apartments as a part of the voucher program could be relocated to these chicken shacks as a solution to public housing. This could possibly spread into low cost real estate developments were low cost housing was conceived to be similar chicken shack constructions, all endorsed by governments, local and otherwise who are supposed to uphold housing standards generally.
If you think this is impossible, just look at the housing standards where our illegals are coming from where vast seas of urban and rural neighborhoods exist of similar structures and worse. Look at the way illegals use existing houses in our neighborhoods as barracks, way outside of legal housing standards, as drop houses and labor pools now.No person whose parents were not both US citizens at the time of their birth is a US citizen nor is any of their descendents.
I will not ever cast my vote for anyone whose parents were not both US citizens at the time of their birth.
