Flashback: Gavin Newsom sent homeless people from San Francisco with ‘one-way tickets’


Governor Gavin Newsom sent a letter to Merrick Garland on Thursday asking the Attorney General to investigate the “kidnapping” charges of those involved in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ attempt to drive illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard. send.

But if sending people out of the state to try and give them a better life is tantamount to “kidnapping,” Newsom has some explaining to do.

In July 2019, SFist published an article criticizing a program called “Homeward Bound,” an initiative initiated by Newsom as mayor of San Francisco in 2004.

The program paid for out-of-town bus tickets, presumably with the destination for friends and family who were willing to take the homeless person.

However, SFist described it as a nicely-named program that masks the fact that it “gives unsheltered San Franciscans a one-way Greyhound bus ticket out of town and asks them to please never come back.”

New York City did it too

New York City has been like San Francisco kidnapping driving homeless people from their streets and also out of the city.

A 2019 report by KUTV 2 News in Salt Lake City claims that individuals filling Utah’s homeless shelters were from the city that never sleeps.

That report was based on a New York Post article claiming that then-Mayor Bill de Blasio “shared his homeless crisis with all corners of America” ​​without informing officials in the receiving areas what they were doing.

The Post also notes that unlike DeSantis, who use a budget who had earmarked $12 million to transport “unauthorized aliens” out of the state, De Blasio used $89 million taxpayer-funded programs to pay their rent to stay in the new location.

They want DeSantis and Abbott charged with human trafficking

Strange how these refuge towns and their politicians are now outraged that red state governors are sending people who are not only homeless – but have no legal right to be in the country – to their tiny shrines.

A rudimentary Google search indicates that neither Newsom nor de Blasio had been charged with kidnapping.

Despite that history, liberals have hit their latest ridiculous talking point – DeSantis and Abbott are guilty of kidnapping, or even “human trafficking.”

Numerous Twitter personalities with blue check marks got the memo and made the same ridiculous accusations time and time again.

There was no outrage when Newsom sent homeless people from San Francisco. There was no rabid reaction when De Blasio did the same. And then President Biden flew illegal immigrants across the country β€” Democrat crickets and their media lap dogs.
