NRATV host Colion Noir on what’s really happening on San Francisco’s streets on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’
San Francisco’s twin crises of housing and homelessness are reaching a tipping point, forcing some residents to move to makeshift boats and barges, forming floating tent cities, due to a lack of affordable shelter.
The city has long suffered from exorbitant rent costs, pricing out large swathes of even working professionals. Some locals end up living in encampments or homeless shelters that are opposed by wealthy residents with a roof over their heads.
