EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Students call out California Dems for homelessness crisis
- California is home to the largest homeless population in the country with more than 120,000 people on the streets and counting.
- Campus Reform spoke with USC students about their thoughts on the issue, and how it's impacting campus life.
California is the most homeless ridden state in America with 129,972 residents without a roof over their heads as of January 2018. That's 20 percent of the approximately 553,742 total homeless population in the United States, as the National Alliance to End Homelessness estimated in 2017. And, unfortunately, the number of homeless people in California isn't getting any smaller.
Democrat leaders, including California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, have called the California homeless problem the “Humanitarian Crisis Of Our Lives." Campus Reform recently traveled to the University of Southern California in Los Angeles to ask students there about the crisis and what they think should be done to rectify the situation.
