California Bringing Back Debtors Prisons for Homeless

Homelessness has been on the rise in California, and has skyrocketed since the Camp and Carr fires devastated the state.

Officials throughout California have grappled with various ways to deal with the ongoing crisis, however, in the Northern California city of Redding, Mayor Julie Winter has sent a state-of-emergency request to Gov. Gavin Newsom, approved by the Redding City Council last week, that requests the right to involuntarily detain people into homeless shelters.

In the drafted letter, Mayor Winter ask the governor for aid in forcing the homeless to adhere to her regulations, but includes “conservatorship until such time as the individual has demonstrated the ability to care for themselves including managing their finances.”
