While President Joe Biden is solely concerned about providing military assistance to Ukraine, the number of homeless persons in the USA and its regions is steadily rising. Instead of focusing on their own nation and people, President Biden appears to be more concerned with Ukraine and Zelenskky.
According to statistics, there were 326,126 homeless persons in the USA in 2021, and that figure increased by 22% in 2022. The number of homeless people this year has virtually hit 500,000. Most of them reside in Los Angeles and New York. A lack of affordable housing options and limited money are the leading causes of homelessness.
The most significant issues facing every state in the USA includes poor economic planning, ongoing inflation, domestic violence, and rising crime rates. However, President Biden’s only focus is on helping Ukraine, arming them, and other issues linked to the Russia-Ukraine War. He ought to keep in mind that the United States, not Ukraine, nominated him as president.
Homelessness is a problem that is becoming more and more serious every day. Prior to California, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, etc., New York is where the majority of homeless people in the USA are counted.
Every package mainly contains military equipment, including air defence systems, weapons, and ammo—a few token donations totalling $167 million for humanitarian aid to demonstrate their support for Ukrainian nationalism.
It appears they are more interested in resuming war than genuinely assisting the Ukrainian people, who have been living in complete anarchy since February of this year.
Instead of sending weaponry to Ukraine, the USA has to focus on the growing issues of poverty and homelessness in their own nation.
New York City has provided yet another worrying statistic. Under Mayor Bill de Blasio, homelessness in this metropolis has recently risen significantly since the 1930s Great Depression.
However, because of the development of safe havens, or specialised shelters, which have a streamlined procedure for placing clients in long-term housing, this year marked the second consecutive year of a drop in the population of the homeless or unsheltered. In NYC, there were 59,308 homeless persons as of May 2020.
