Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Hawaii governor declares state of emergency amid homelessness crisis

Hawaii
governor David Ige has declared a state of emergency to deal with the
state’s homelessness crisis, just days after city and state officials
cleared one of the nation’s largest homeless encampments.


The move will help the state speed up the process of building a
homeless shelter for families, and the state is considering four
possible sites, Ige said at a news conference on Friday.


“We are making sure that we have options for those who are homeless
to move into an emergency shelter, and the biggest deficit in the system
is shelter space for families,” Ige said. “So the emergency
proclamation would allow us to stand up shelters for families in an
expeditious manner.”


Hawaii saw a 23% increase in its unsheltered homeless population
between 2014 and 2015, and a 46% increase in the number of unsheltered
families, said Scott Morishige, state homelessness coordinator.


There were 7,260 homeless people in Hawaii at the latest count,
meaning Hawaii has the highest rate of homelessness per capita of any
state in the nation.  | The Guardian
