    It’s not the worse idea I’ve heard . I could see illegals jumping on this trend, how do you check the imagination status of the homeless?

    Maybe the new Governor of California could implement this program for his homeless & hopefully his newly bused illegals??

    🇺🇸 A new start to recovery: A terrific solution to put them back onto their feet. Now self worth and respect and their purpose in life is being restored. Next a clean roof over their heads. This is the foundation of capitalism…to reach out to work hard and to earn your dreams. All things are possible in America.
