Democrat Backed Bill In Maryland Would Prevent Police From Removing ‘Tent Cities’ From Public Land

Over the past decade, homelessness in America has become a serious problem.

In cities across the country, which are mostly controlled by Democrats, tent cities have become a common sight. Crime is also an ongoing problem associated with this issue.

In Maryland, Democrats are backing a bill which would make it impossible for police to remove these tent cities from public land, like parks for instance.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

A New Dem Bill Would Make ‘Tent Cities’ Permanent Fixture

Some of the nation’s most liberal cities are cracking down on their homeless populations. But Maryland may soon ban police from removing homeless people from public property.

A Democratic-backed bill in the Maryland statehouse would prevent police from enforcing Failure to Obey Lawful Orders laws, which critics say would permit homeless camps, known as “tent cities,” on public property. The sponsor of the bill, Democratic delegate Sheila Ruth, said in a committee hearing that these tent cities are not harmful or dangerous to communities.

“We shouldn’t be destroying homeless encampments,” Ruth said.

Ruth did not respond to a request for comment.

Ruth is pushing to permit homeless encampments in Maryland as Democratic politicians roll back on similar policies across the country. The Los Angeles City Council in October banned homeless camps in 54 locations. Austin, Texas, in May overwhelmingly voted to ban public camping across the city. Seattle and Washington, D.C., have cleared out homeless camps in recent months, and New York City mayor Eric Adams (D.) on Friday released a plan to remove homeless people from public areas such as subway trains.

Is this the America that people want to live in?

We need real solutions to the homeless problem.

This is not one of them.
