"Homeless encampments along the Santa Ana River Trail and in our city parks deprive us the use of our parks, bring crime into our neighborhoods and businesses, and degrade our quality of life. It is illegal to camp on the river trail or in city parks. This mass defiance of the law undermines the law’s ability to protect all of us. We demand the vigorous and sustained enforcement of these anti-camping ordinances, and a crackdown on criminality in the homeless encampments by the County of Orange, the City of Anaheim and the City of Orange. We support helping the homeless who are willing to do what’s necessary to become independent, productive members of society, but those who repeatedly refuse help cannot be allowed to camp and live on the Santa Ana River trail or in our city parks.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! It’s time for our elected officials to empower law enforcement to enforce the law, and reclaim our public parks for the use of the public."
