The homelessness problem in LA is growing and local residents are fed up with it. They also feel like their local politicians are not helping enough to fix the problem.

Even the current Democratic Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, had to admit that what LA is facing now, is something that shouldn't happen at all in the country like USA.

"Our homeless crisis has increasingly become a public health crisis," he said. "Last year, there was a hepatitis-A outbreak in San Diego. Recently, there was an outbreak of syphilis in Sonoma. And now, typhus in Los Angeles. Typhus. That's a medieval disease. In California. In 2019," he added.

Los Angeles is one of the four cities on the West Coast, together with Portland, Seattle and San Francisco, that suffer from the homeless crisis. The recent official statistics say that there are currently over 60,000 homeless people in Los Angeles County and over 36,000 in LA.

In the last year, the number of chronically homeless (living on the streets for more than a year) people also raised by 17 percent. And these are only official statistics, while the reality can be even worse.

But at one point it seemed that it will finally get better. The Democratic politicians that rule California, promised that they will quickly resolve this problem. But months and months passed and they failed to pass legislation that could help to increase the state's supply of housing.

Both the homeless and residents are already tired of this situation. One of the homeless women, that lives in infamous Skid Row, laughs at politicians who say that they are "shocked" because of the housing crisis.

"Why are they shocked? We've been down here this whole time. They're the ones who don't come down here", she mocks them. Some of the residents, on the other hand, promise to vote out the politicians that only talk and do nothing about the crisis.  "We've been hearing the same thing on loop for years," said Whitney Beard, one of the workers in downtown LA.

"California is a disgrace to our country," concluded Trump during his August campaign rally in Ohio. "It's a shame. The world is looking at it. Look at Los Angeles with the tents and the horrible, horrible disgusting conditions," he resumed.
