‘Squad’ Member Demands Federal Gov’t Spend Billions on ‘Unhoused Crisis’

'The unhoused crisis in our country is a public health emergency, and a moral and policy failure at every level of our government...'

Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., introduced a bill this week demanding that Congress end homelessness nationwide by 2025.

The bill, called the Unhoused Bill of Rights, claims the federal government must declare homelessness a public-health emergency and spend billions of dollars to create more affordable housing and additional services for homeless people.

It is co-sponsored by several of Bush’s fellow ‘Squad‘ members and other equally radical leftist Democrats, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Mondaire Jones of New York, Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts

“The unhoused crisis in our country is a public health emergency, and a moral and policy failure at every level of our government,” Bush said, citing her experience with homelessness when she lived in her car with her two children for a brief period of time.

“I know the daily trauma and stress that comes with the perpetual instability of not having a safe place to live,” she added.

Bush’s bill also specifically states that social service agencies, instead of law enforcement, should receive additional funding to take care of the homeless.

Bush has been a vocal advocate for the “Defund the Police” movement, alleging that police officers do more harm than good when they confront mentally ill and homeless people. She even claimed “investing more money in policing is always bad.”

However, a recent report revealed that Bush spent nearly $70,000 on private security even while she advocated for defunding the police.

Federal Election Commission records show that her political campaign paid $54,120.92 between April 15 and June 28 for “security services” to RS&T Security Consulting, and $15,000 to Nathaniel David for “security services” during that same period.
