Portland to lease larger space to store homeless campers' belongings
The new location, a 4,000-plus square foot warehouse in NE Portland, is much larger than the current space, a 1,000-square foot house in SW Portland.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The process by which a homeless person in Portland retrieves their own tents, clothes, backpacks and other belongings confiscated and stored when campsites are cleared is about to get easier, thanks to a unanimous vote at Wednesday’s Portland City Council meeting.
Council members voted 5-0 in favor of leasing a privately owned 4,000-plus square foot warehouse near Northeast 24th Avenue and Holladay Street, which will replace and dwarf the space that currently houses stored possessions.
That space, a blue 1,000-plus square foot house owned by the Portland Water Bureau, sits near Southwest Barbur Boulevard and Taylors Ferry Road.\

Gov. Brown to sign immigrant tuition equity, driver's license bills at May Day rally
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown is scheduled to sign two bills supporting immigrants living in Oregon at the annual May Day rally Tuesday.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown is scheduled to sign two bills supporting immigrants living in Oregon at the annual May Day rally Tuesday.
May Day, also known as International Workers' Day, has evolved from focusing on workers' rights to include immigrant rights. Oregon's rally, which joins hundreds of rallies throughout the country, drew roughly 1,500 supporters to the Oregon State Capitol last year.
This year, Brown will sign Senate Bill 1563, which allows undocumented students in Oregon to continue getting access to lower tuition costs, scholarships and other financial aid; and House Bill 4111, which allows the DMV to renew and replace a limited-term driver's license for DACA and Temporary Protected Status recipients whose status may have expired due to federal immigration policy changes.
Andrea Williams, the executive director of immigrant rights organization Causa Oregon, said rally speakers will focus on defending Oregon's 30-year-old sanctuary law prohibiting local and state police from enforcing federal immigration laws.
Three Republican legislators are spearheading an initiative petition that would repeal Oregon Statute 181.850, which states law enforcement agencies may not use agency money, equipment or personnel to detect or apprehend people who are only violating federal immigration laws by being foreign citizens in the United States.
Rep. Mike Nearman, R-Independence, Rep. Sal Esquivel, R-Medford, and Rep. Greg Barreto, R-Pendleton, are sponsoring Initiative Petition 22. Oregonians for Immigration Reform, an organization that says it's calling for an end to illegal immigration, is "cosigning" the initiative.
"If that initiative petition makes it to the ballot, and if a majority of Oregon voters say 'yes, we want to repeal,' it would be taking us back to an Oregon where racial profiling is even more rampant today," Williams said.
Williams points to some defining arrests or detainment of United States citizens carried out by local Oregon police officers that sparked the passage of the state's sanctuary state law in 1987.
Delmiro Trevino had been physically detained without a warrant by Polk County Sheriff's deputies in an Independence restaurant in 1977 and was later released after deputies established he was a longtime resident and citizen.
Ten years after his arrest, Oregon passed its sanctuary state law with the help of Rocky Barilla, the first Latino elected to the Oregon House who sponsored the sanctuary state bill, and who also served as a lawyer for Trevino.
Speakers are also expected to discuss the "continued need" for drivers licenses for all immigrants living in Oregon and the importance of supporting workers unions.
Williams is expected to be joined by Rep. Teresa Alonso León, D-Woodburn, Sen. James Manning, Jr., D-North Eugene, Oregon School Employee Association President Tim Stoelb, and Ramon Ramirez, the president of Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste, or PCUN.

You guys are so fucked on the west coast. I just can not rap my head around their logic. As long as it does not infect where I live or cost me money, have add it dummies. I read an article about Seattle and how they want to tackle homeless people. It is really a swell idea. Tax companies 26 cents on the dollar for every employee. Now this is on,y for companies that have 20 mil in sales/revenue whatever. They want to raise 75 mil a year. Amazon for some reason is complaining. Amazon already spent 10 mil on the homeless as they made a shelter for them in one of their work buildings. Yes you read that correctly. You go to work and at your place of work are homeless people inside. I need some of these frugs the left coast takes.

On a good note if they keep this shit up all the homeless will end up out there. Free shit yo

Remember, the west coast and NYC are test beds. If they get away with it here, it WILL get to other states or even become national policy if dems get control.

And Rhodesia... only places in Africa that seem to still have infrastructure or getting infrastructure added are places with resources that let the Chinese grape them for.

We just bid a construction project in downtown Seattle where one of the requirements is that we sweep the construction site for homeless encampments weekly and store their belongings for 70 days, after which it is disposed of. So not only do we have to pay people to clean up that toxic nightmare, but then we have to store, inventory and pay to dispose of endless trash that may or may not be some wino's treasure. And you wonder why it costs a billion dollars to drill a mile long tunnel.

Does it say how you have to sweep it? Personally, I'd sweep it with a flame thrower or 26.........
