Nimbyism is a huge issue/problem in my area. No one wants low income housing in their back yard and protest at every public meeting.

Immigration is an issue not just for housing.

Homeless Hub is just a shaming rag. Hit the public to make them feel bad. Homelessness has been around for hundred years. Some folks just choose that lifestyle. The Salvation Army began 1865 to help the homeless. Population has increased dramatically and so have drug addicts and homeless.

Bottom line, there is no "right" to own a home. Everyone has the ability to own a home but that is entirely up the them. No one owes anyone a place to live.
