“TRAIL OF TEARS’ 2015”
WHY HAS IT BEEN SUCH A LACK OF ACTION
TO COMBAT THE HOMELESSNESS IN CALIFORNIA
By: Addie M. Miller
Deracination is a crime against humanity. Force removal is a crime against humanity, even if it is market driven economics.
Forced to live homeless and forced to live in poverty.
Forced migration (also called deracination — originally a French word meaning uprooting) refers to the coerced movement of a person or persons away from their home or home region. Migrating in the same country means the person is an Internally Displaced Person (or IDP). It often connotes violent coercion, and is used interchangeably with the terms “displacement” or forced displacement
The L.A. Times’ article dated September 22, 2015 ‘L.A. To declare ‘state of emergency’ on homelessness’
“It’s time to get real, because this is literally a matter of life and death,” said Councilman Mike Bonin, whose Westside district is home to many of the makeshift sidewalk encampments that are an increasingly glaring symbol of the problem across the city. He spoke of a “collective failure of every level of government to deal with what has been a homeless crisis for generations and is exploding and exacerbating now.”
Acknowledging their failure to stem a surge in homelessness, Los Angeles’ elected leaders on Tuesday said they would declare a “state of emergency” and devote up to $100 million to the problem. But they offered few details about where the money would come from or how it would be spent, leaving some to question the effort’s chances of success.
L.A. to declare ‘state of emergency’ on homelessness, commit $100 million
Some lawmakers assert that their proposed declaration — which the council must still vote to approve — would allow the city to ease restrictions on churches and nonprofit groups sheltering the homeless and speed up the permitting process for builders of affordable housing. They pointed to a state law that allows the city to declare a “shelter crisis” and use public facilities such as parks or schools as emergency housing.

“TRAIL OF TEARS”
The homelessness in Los Angeles is similar and a repeat of the “Indian Genocide”. Trail_of_Tears
The relocated peoples suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while enroute, and many died before reaching their various destinations.
The Trail of Tears was a series of forced relocations of Native American nations in the United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The removal included members of the Cherokee, Muscogee, Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations, from their ancestral homelands in the southeastern U.S. to an area west of the Mississippi River that had been designated as Indian Territory. The phrase “Trail of Tears” originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831.
Between 1830 and 1850, the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee, Creek, Seminole and Cherokee peoples (including European Americans and African American freedmen and slaves who lived among them) were forcibly removed from their traditional lands and relocated further west.
CALIFORNIA UNFRIENDLY TO SENIOR CITIZENS
Senior Citizens are being told by management of properties there is a 3 to 10 years Waiting Lists or Waiting List is ‘closed’ to obtain permanent residence
The Baby Boomer generation are Senior Citizens now. Does THIS mean that seniors will have to wait 3 o 10 years to obtain a permanent residence or is this a way to eliminate the population? Is the government intending to increase the homelessness in Los Angeles when seniors are in need permanent housing.
Rent prices are very high which makes it impossible for a Low or Middle Income to rent a permanent resident in Los Angeles.
The homeless/Senior Citizens are being taken advantage of by people who charge 80% of a person income just for a bed. Making the person unable to buy food and other necessary items they are in need of for the month.
In my opinion this is DERACINATION the uprooting and forced displacement of one group by another, especially, better than 80% of the homeless population are black.
