What you are about to see is not a scene from a third-world country, it’s from a hell hole of Democrat lead Portland.
Democrats lead Portland have faced a record number of homeless people, which leaves the community fearing for their lives. Some residents started selling their houses to escape from the left-wing utopia as they say.
According to another area resident, people don’t feel as safe. “Every day if you go from one end of the street to the other, you’re confronting some very difficult situations, people in really dire straits.”
Neighbors in the area reported at least three families along McKenna Avenue have left due to the increasing homeless encampments.

Portland families forced to sell their homes as concerns mount over homeless camps
Residents in a Portland, Oregon, neighborhood are resorting to selling their homes and moving due to homeless encampments right outside their front doors.
“It’s a little scary because I know there is mental illness and that concerns me,” North Portland resident Maria Inocencio told KGW8.
Residents of North Portland said at least three families on one street have left in recent days due to the homeless camps, and KGW8 reported seeing for-sale signs up and down streets.
“I would say the migration to the suburbs, I’ve seen quite a bit in the last two years,” real estate broker Lauren Iaquinta said. “Most people don’t want to have to worry about if they can leave their car parked in their driveway overnight without maybe having it broken into. It’s a pretty testy subject.”
Iaquinta said she now studies neighborhoods to see if there are homeless camps in a given area while working with potential buyers.

How did things get this bad?
A root fallacy of the Left is their belief it’s humane to encourage highly addictive, disabling drug use, as though schizophrenics wallowing in filth, urinating on the streets while screaming profanity is a foundational freedom
It’s all monstrously cruel https://t.co/gbhPSE2Iqn

Oregon has seen a 20.5% increase in homelessness from 2014 to 2020, the last year the data were available. Portland has been under a housing and homelessness emergency since April 2015.
In addition, Portland saw more homicides in 2021 than San Francisco and more than double the amount of Seattle, despite having a smaller population than both. According to the Portland Police Bureau, the city saw a record 90 homicides last year.
