Kshama Sawant: ‘These are human beings who have to exist somewhere’
SEATTLE -- Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant weighed in on the city’s homeless crisis Wednesday in an interview with Q13 News. Sawant said she would like the city to put aside $10 million in emergency funding to help deal with the issue. The councilwoman also blasted “sweeps” of homeless camps, saying tents cannot be moved out of “The Jungle,” a notorious encampment underneath Interstate 5, without somewhere to house those who are displaced.
