FEMA Camps: City to Exile the Homeless; It’s not a Conspiracy Theory Anymore

Under the radar from the prying eyes of the public, South Carolina made it legal to get rid of their homeless problem. The people were given a choice, FEMA Camps or jail. The irony of it all was this happened right at the 50th Anniversary of Civil Liberties in August. The bad part is different cities from Boston to New York are shipping off their homeless, and no one cares. Is this coming to a town near you?




As Federal Reserve continues to print money for Q.E. and keep the interest rate near zero percent, another housing babble is forming. Once it breaks up, there will be a lot of people turning into homeless. Would the government have a big jail for them?

America's Homeless Kids Crisis

Sarah Goodyear

Nov 01, 2013

The raw numbers are shocking: in the 2011 school year, 1,168,354 homeless children were enrolled in preschools and K-12 programs. Even more disturbing is the trend those numbers show: nationally, they represent a 10 percent jump over the previous school year, and a stunning 72 percent increase since the beginning of the recession in 2008.


The crisis is not confined to any one region. Forty-three states reported a rise in the number of homeless kids, and 10 showed jumps of more than 20 percent, according to a compilation of the DOE data assembled by the National Center for Homeless Education [PDF]. The biggest jumps were found in Maine (58 percent), Michigan (42 percent), North Carolina (53 percent), North Dakota (212 percent), South Dakota (35 percent), Vermont (31 percent), and Wyoming (40 percent).

Actually this is not new.  Many cities in the 50's did the same thing.  After all in jail they could get a meal..

Readers respond to the homeless man and daughter on Santa Clara VTA bus


By Mark Emmons         11/09/2013

SAN JOSE -- The front-page photo of a father dozing with his young daughter huddled near him covered only with a thin blanket as they spent the night on a public bus instantly became the heart-wrenching picture of homelessness in Silicon Valley.

"That bus story really touched a nerve," Loving said. "But it's really not just this girl. There are hundreds of girls like this, but those families are off the radar. They're not actually on the streets because parents are trying to protect their kids. They're staying in cars or with friends.


"I don't think people really understand homelessness and just who is out there."


A point-in-time census conducted in January counted 7,631 homeless in Santa Clara County. An accompanying survey estimated that 19,063 people would experience homelessness this year in the county.
