Los Angeles County seeks review of ruling on homelessness

While aboard Air Force One on Wednesday, the president noted that it was a "coincidence" that the announcement came while he was in Los Angeles, which ranked as the smoggiest city in 2010 and 2011.

"EPA is going to be putting out a notice", he added. "They're in serious violation".

"They have to clean it up".

While aboard Air Force One on Wednesday, the president noted that it was a "coincidence" that the announcement came while he was in Los Angeles, which has always been known as one of the smoggiest United States cities.

Trump challenged the law in federal court in August, the Times reported.

San Francisco has long struggled with problems of human waste and needles on the streets in the Tenderloin district, where many addicts and homeless people are found. The city set up public toilets and previous year announced formation of a special six-person "poop patrol" team to clean up the human waste.

The city also announced funding to hire people to pick up used needles.

"If the President wants to talk about homelessness, we are committed to working on actual solutions, like adding 1,000 new shelter beds by next year and working to pass a $600 million affordable housing bond to create more badly needed housing", Breed wrote on September 18. The letter was rejected on Wednesday by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, per the president's request. He blamed the Golden State's policies on law enforcement, an over-regulated housing market, and sanctuary policies regarding illegal aliens for driving up housing costs while increasing demand.

"Your letter seeks federal dollars for California from hardworking American taxpayers but fails to admit that your state and local policies have played a major role in the current crisis", Carson said in response.

President Donald Trump spent two days in California this week. The governor also called for the value of the vouchers to be bumped up to account for the city's rising housing rental prices.

Trump said that he was considering creating an "individual task force" to address the issue of homelessness, The Los Angeles Times reported, but failed to elaborate further. The state's other metropolitan areas have similar situations.

The vote directs county lawyers draft a brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear a challenge to a decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals against the city of Boise, Idaho.

"It's a ugly topic - that's in Los Angeles and in San Francisco", he stated. The court ruled it is unconstitutional to arrest or otherwise sanction homeless people who sleep on sidewalks when there aren't enough shelter beds.

Supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted against the motion, saying in a social media post that it would "criminalize poor people who have nowhere else to go".

"The status quo is untenable", he said in a statement. Jerry Brown listens during a visit to a neighborhood impacted by the Camp wildfire in Paradise, Calif.
