Oregon anti-camping homeless law creates division in Supreme Court

Supreme Court justices expressed concern on Monday about punishing homeless people for sleeping outside when they have nowhere else to go, while also dealing with state leaders and how they can manage the growing number of unhoused individuals. The court’s review of Oregon anti-camping laws could lead to a significant ruling on unhoused rights. Liberal justices questioned laws criminalizing basic human needs, while conservative justices believed policymakers should set local rules. The case began in Grants Pass, where homeless individuals sued the city for punishing them unconstitutionally. The situation has drawn national attention and sparked debate about homelessness policies and constitutional rights.
