Mayor Karen Bass of Los Angeles is facing criticism over the return of homeless encampments, despite her “Inside Safe” initiative to move people into hotels.

Her predecessor and California’s governor adopted a policy of using funds to house homeless in motels, but this fails to address root issues like mental health and costs.

After Bass nearly lost promising to address homelessness, encampments have reemerged in areas previously cleared.

Residents complain of fires, waste, drugs and threats.

They are frustrated by the lack of political will from Democratic leaders, as seen when Governor Newsom cleared San Francisco streets for a Chinese official, suggesting taxpayers count less than a communist dictator.

The resurging encampments undermine Bass’ claims of progress through temporary housing that doesn’t solve long-term problems.
