White House readies California homelessness plan after ousting top official

White House officials will soon present President Trump with a plan to crack down on homelessness in California, days after ousting a top federal officials appointed during the Obama administration, according to two senior administration officials.

The plan is expected to be shown to Trump within the coming weeks, officials said, perhaps as soon as next week. Trump will be able to select from a series of ideas for how to address the growing homeless problem in several major cities.

One person involved in deliberations said the administration’s plans are likely to target homelessness in Los Angeles and could include repurposing existing federal property, but the exact set of policy options to be presented to the president could not be learned. As part of the discussions, officials have also discussed moving homeless people from specific areas and condemning certain properties, though it’s unclear if those options will make it into the final plan.
