California spends $20 billion on homelessness in five years, report finds

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A homeless assessment report recently revealed that California taxpayers have spent $20 billion on homelessness in the last five years.

Jones joined KUSI’s Hunter Sowards to discuss his perspective on the situation.
