(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) At a meeting in Los Angeles on March 25 about solving the state’s homelessness crisis, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., told the homeless attendees to “go home,” seemingly mocking the very crisis she and other leftists have created through failed social policies.

Fathers and Mothers Who Care, a non-profit agency that helps “unhoused people” find temporary shelter, hosted events at their office on Friday and Tuesday, according to the Western Journal.
The event’s homeless attendees came having far higher hopes in mind than the non-profit group could fulfill. A social media post falsely announced that the group was “giving out section 8 on imperial and Vermont today and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays go get some help!!”
All Fathers and Mothers Who Care planned to do was take a homeless person’s information and notify them when emergency housing becomes available.
On Friday, Waters delivered an impassioned speech about solving California’s homelessness crisis—which stems from state-supported drug abuse, uncontrolled immigration, and restrictive construction policies—and she told the homeless to return on Tuesday with completed paperwork.
The crowd, feeling deceived, became agitated.
“You cannot get Section 8 vouchers here,” Waters said with a facemask pulled under her chin. “I want everybody to go home.”
One homeless person yelled at her, “We don’t got no home, that’s why we’re here. What home we gonna go to?”
The founder of Kingdom Warriors Foundation, which works with housing issues, then asked Waters about her failure to solve Los Angeles’s housing crisis.
“Excuse me, there’s nobody in Washington who works for their people any f***ing harder than I do,” she said. “I don’t want to hear this. No, no, no.”
“That’s what I do every day,” she continued. “The money that you got thus far came from me in Washington, D.C.”
