    Portland proposal would mandate new buildings to designate spaces for homeless to camp out

    Democrats’ solution to America’s homelessness epidemic isn’t to curb it, but to expand it — into everyone’s neighborhoods. A panel in the Democrat-led city of Portland, Oregon wants all new buildings — both commercial and residential — to designate spaces for the homeless, including providing sleeping camps.

    The move to uglify Portland is being led by Oriana Magnera, a commissioner on the City of Portland’s Planning and Sustainability Commission.

    “We have increasing housing costs and we cannot support all of the people who live here now and are going to live here in the future,” Magnera said, as reported by Willamette Week. “There’s a benefit for designing buildings that could be used for rest. That’s a reality of the place we live in right now and the housing shortage we have right now.”

    Oriana Magnera has a bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies and is the director of “climate policy” at Verde, a Portland “environmental justice” group.

    For some reason, Magnera is not concerned that encouraging homeless people to loiter and defecate in front of residential and commercial buildings would pollute those areas, tank real-estate values, and hurt businesses. That would cripple Portland economically and lead to more homelessness.

    Someone who has a degree in Woman's Studies should not be in charge of anything.
