The West Coast has been overrun by homeless camps that are afflicted with the virus, but the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit is a significant contributor to the issue.
The 9th Circuit’s denial of a full court review of Grants Pass, Oregon’s efforts to solve its homelessness epidemic last week presents the Supreme Court with an opportunity to intervene and correct the 9th Circuit’s error.
The 9th Circuit’s fabrication of such a right is causing disease and anarchy to spread throughout the West, and the Supreme Court should correct the issue as quickly as possible. There is no Eighth Amendment right to camp in a public park.
Before the revolution, the majority of the colonies had anti-vagrancy laws, and they upheld them throughout the establishment and expansion of the republic.
Before Martin, the number of homeless people was growing, but it has now skyrocketed. Today, California alone is home to more than half of all unsheltered homeless individuals, and there are over 70,000 of them camped out in Los Angeles.
Supreme Court’s Call To Action
These camps prevent law-abiding people from using the parks since they occupy the entire space. They have developed into carriers of crimes, such as robbery, rape, and open drug use, as well as diseases like the plague.
Homelessness is a complicated issue that is brought on by a lot of things, such as environmental rules that make it difficult to find inexpensive accommodation, the legalization of drugs, which increases the number of addicts, and shoddy mental health care systems.
However, depriving communities the option to clean up public areas and make public camping less appealing makes it difficult to address this issue.
A year ago, the Supreme Court made the wise decision to remove abortion regulation from federal courts and hand it back to democratically elected officials. Now is the time to implement the same strategy for homelessness policy.
