Trump Admin Looking at FAA Facility to Relocate Homeless

Officials of the Trump administration took a tour around a facility in California which was used by the Federal Aviation Administration in a search for sites to relocate the homeless population of the state, The Hill reported citing The Washington Post.

According to the Post, the facility is situated in or near the city of Los Angeles.

One of the officials reported that President Donald Trump said that the announcement regarding the issue with homelessness is expected to come next week, while another official told the Post that a decision is not currently scheduled for the trip. 

A White House spokesperson was not immediately available for comment from The Hill on Wednesday night.  

The development comes a day after the Post reported that President Trump directed officials to crack down on homelessness in California and discussed relocating homeless people into government-backed facilities. 

A White House official confirmed to The Hill Tuesday that there is a team in California for fact finding and learning more about the issue. 

White House spokesman Judd Deere told The Hill in a statement that Trump “has directed his team to …develop a range of policy options for consideration to deal with this tragedy.”

Alex Comisar, a spokesperson for Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D), told The Hill in a statement the city welcomes the administration and “looks forward to showing them our work to confront this humanitarian emergency.”
