Public space should be for everyone, including those who are homeless. This legislation targets the homeless or those perceived to be homeless. It does not offer them housing or jobs or services, only fines, which, if not paid, turn into bench warrants and possibly jail time. That "criminal record" creates a hurdle to their getting into housing later on. So the legislation keeps people homeless.
