ICYMI: New report undermines Newsom's SF homeless claim
ICYMI: San Francisco published a study recently showing 70 percent of homeless people in the city were living in San Francisco at the time they became homeless, with 55 percent having lived there for more than 10 years.
This fact undermines Gov. Gavin Newsom's recent baseless claim that the "vast majority" of San Francisco's homeless are from Texas.
According to the study, job loss and high housing costs were primary causes of homelessness in San Francisco. Relocating from Texas was not listed as a factor.
Newsom's office couldn't provide a source for his Texas claim when asked by the Los Angeles Times in late June. Can he provide a source now? Or is it just that decades of failed leadership in San Francisco--including Newsom's time as mayor--have caused the city's homelessness epidemic?
