Governor Gavin Newsom announced this week his plans to sue an upscale California city after they refused to construct a certain amount of “affordable housing” within its limits; accusing the local government of “standing in the way” and escalating the regions’ homeless crisis.
Newsom’s administration is poised to sue Huntington Beach, a wealthy neighborhood on the outskirts of Los Angeles; claiming they’re “standing in the way of affordable housing production and refusing to meet regional housing needs.”
“The suit, the first of its kind under a state law passed last year, will seek to require the city to amend its housing plan for the building of more units accessible to people of all income levels, according to the governor’s office,” writes the Wall Street Journal.
“The state doesn’t take this action lightly,” said the governor. “The huge housing costs and sky-high rents are eroding quality of life for families across this state.”

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Gavin Newsom Calls for Free Healthcare for Region's ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS
Democratic candidate for Governor of California Gavin Newsom raised eyebrows across the state this week; calling for a universal healthcare program to cover millions of illegal immigrants residing in the region.
Newsom was speaking on the left-leaning “Pod Save America” podcast when he weighed-in on his fellow Democrats proposal for a “Medicare for All” system; saying a universal healthcare scheme should apply to every person -regardless of immigration status- living in California.
“I did universal health care when I was mayor– fully implemented, regardless of pre-existing condition, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status. San Francisco is the only universal health care plan for all undocumented residents in America. Very proud of that,” Newsom said. “I’d like to see that extended to the rest of the state.”

GAVIN’S GOALS: Newsom Releases His List of ‘BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS’ for All Americans
Former Mayor of San Francisco and Democratic candidate for Governor of California Gavin Newsom published his official list of “basic human rights” this week, saying all Americans deserve an “affordable” home and “healthcare.”
Newsom posted his manifesto on social media, saying everyone in the United States should have access to clean water, food, healthcare, education, and housing.
Food to feed your family.
Healthcare that doesn’t bankrupt you.
An education that prepares you for the future.
An affordable, safe place to call home.
These should not be outlandish ideas.
These should be basic human rights.

Newsom’s list comes months before Democrats make their push to retake Congress this November, with liberal candidates calling for more federal programs; including expanded healthcare, housing, and free college.
