'Making a Truce With Illegality': Arroyo Criticizes San Francisco's Hefty Street Cleanup Budget
Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo criticized Friday night on "The Ingraham Angle” the amount of money allocated to clean San Francisco's streets of human waste from the homeless.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the city's Department of Public Works has $72.5 million budget, including nearly $1 million for its "Poop Patrol."
Six workers have been assigned to clean the streets of human waste amid San Francisco's homelessness crisis.
Filthy streets, laden with human feces and hypodermic needles, have become far more common, as the number of homeless citizens continues to rise.
Each member of San Francisco's team to clear city streets of feces is reportedly being paid $184,678 after mandated benefits.
Additionally, the city's Department of Public Health has set aside $700,000 for a team to collect hazardous needles off the ground.
"This is what's called making a truce with illegality," Arroyo said, adding that the city's government isn't enforcing its laws regarding the homeless.
San Francisco has received close to 15,000 calls about piles of human waste and dog feces since the beginning of 2018.
"This is a disgraceful situation in more ways than one," he said. "It really needs cleanup, both politically and otherwise."
