Hawaii is set to embark on an unusual new program for reducing the size of the state’s homeless population by offering them a one-way ticket back home.
Under a program dubbed ‘return to home’ the Aloha State is looking to cut back on the expenditures currently going to food, shelter and other services for its homeless population, currently numbering some 17,000.
The three-year pilot program is set to be launched during the current fiscal year, as $100,000 has been appropriated to fund one-way airline tickets, and possibly even spots on cruise ships, to return the homeless back to the continental US.
Isn't that nice of them?
Yes it is! Most of the homeless are from out of State and it's getting out of control!
Rumor has it that other States are sending them here.
