The city of San Jose, Ca. has hosted protests against the President’s wall proposal, and has a representative in congress who’s introduced legislation to stop the border wall. But gotta hand it to the Democrats, they never miss an opportunity to be hypocritical. Residents of the city where approximately 47% of its registered voters are Democrats (vs about 21% Republicans) are demanding a bigger and stronger wall, not to keep out Illegals, but to keep out homeless Americans.
SAN JOSE (KPIX-5) — Caltrans [California Dept. of Transportation] is building a taller, stronger wall in San Jose to stop homeless individuals from returning to an encampment.
Caltrans has repeatedly cleaned up the large encampment under I-280, but the homeless keep returning.
Laura Nunez, who has lived on Macredes Avenue in San Jose most of her life, said everything changed on her street when homeless people began using the rickety chain link fence at the end of the block as a doorway to their encampments along I-280.
“Every time Caltrans would come out and repair it…as soon as they left they cut a hole in it and they just use that…that was their main access point to go in and out,” said Nunez. “We’ve had to live with their garbage. We’ve had to live with drug paraphernalia. The kids haven’t been able come out to play.”
Maybe I’m not remembering this right…but when President Trump talks about the wall between the U.S. and Mexico, isn’t part if his reasoning to prevent drugs from entering the country? But these San Jose folks want a wall to keep drugs out of their neighborhood. Isn’t that racist?
Caltrans and the city heard the neighbors’ complaints and on Monday, workers were out building a taller barrier at the freeway on-ramp and on Macredes Avenue.
Wait a second! I thought liberals want to help the poor. Oh that’s right only when they can be moved into Republican areas…
