Sheriff’s deputies evict homeless moms from Oakland home

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Homeless women ordered by a judge last week to leave a vacant house they occupied illegally in Oakland for two months have been evicted by sheriff's deputies.

They removed two women and a male supporter Tuesday from the home before dawn in a case highlighting California's severe housing shortage and growing homeless population.

The women had said they should be allowed to stay in the house that had been vacant for months.

Authorities say 3 people inside the house were arrested on misdemeanor charges after they were given five minutes to leave and did not. A fourth person was arrested outside the house.

    1. Change the gender to fathers with kids and this does not make the news. I would love to squat and enjoy those freebies but you couldn’t pay me to live in Oakland. And here, if I try to live in someone else’s home without entering into a lease or paying for rent, I probably get arrested for trespassing.
