To quote Anchorage Mayor Dave Bronson:
“I am not going to be responsible for people freezing to death on the street. I’m doing everything I can, literally, I’m doing everything I can to keep that from happening,” Bronson said during a rare extended interview covering a wide range of topics at his office in City Hall.
I am not familiar with the laws and policies regarding homeless people in the U.S. But, it seems to be big trouble for California, which has the perfect weather for homeless people to stay, if they are obligated to accommodate every homeless sent from other states with four seasons a year. And if my understanding is correct, the U.S. does not set any restrictions on the choice of residence for their citizens, but on the other hand, being homeless is illegal in the U.S., except for Oregon and Wyoming.
So by the Constitution or any law in the U.S., can Los Angeles (or any city in California) refuse to take homeless sent from other states?
