We are shocked by videos of Muslim refugees encamped on the streets of Paris, France, but we have the same thing in America — of homeless people.
Here’s a shocking video showing homeless make-shift tents and their belongings stretching a mile in the heart of Orange County, between Disneyland and Angel Stadium, Anaheim.

Orange County in southern California is in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim metropolitan area. 34 incorporated cities are in the county, the four largest being Anaheim, Santa Ana, Irvine, and Huntington Beach. With a population of 3,010,232, it is the 6th most populous county in the U.S.
Though long known as a Republican stronghold, the Republican margin began to narrow in the 1990s and 2000s as the state trended Democratic, and in 2016, Hillary Clinton won the county with a majority — the first time Orange County voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1936 landslide re-election for a second term.
