I support this legislation but I'm very surprised Swalwell took time away from his "I hate Trump forever" campaign to put his name on an initiative authored by another Representative. Swalwell is making an 11th hour effort before the November election to appear to be doing "the people's work". Does he know where the homeless camps are in District 15 are located? Is he aware of the homeless man living under the tress at the I580 - Foothill Road Intersection ? Don't vote for this embarrassment of a Representative in November. He only represents himself !!

Could you (Pleasanton Weekly), because you admire him so much, ask when will he address the Southern Border which is leaving tens to hundreds of thousands of dead victims across this nation due to murder and fentanyl. He would actually save lives, but probably not a safe subject for him I bet?

@Jake, Since the border crisis affects more than just California, wouldn't it be better to have our president and vice president address that issue? Especially after the administration ends the pandemic restrictions May 23?
