Despite striving for social equality and democracy, such problems as immigration, poverty, and homelessness still arise in modern society, becoming a threat for public health balance. Economic instability in the country has lead to mental division of the general public into social stratification layers, forming discriminating perception towards distressed members of American community. According to the newspaper stories, homeless people suffer in a triple measure.

Rosenberg (2012) writes that homeless community of San Hose has risen drastically recently. It seems that the society malfunctions, such as stealing, killing and social malfunctions are cradling in the areas of homeless camps now posing a range of problems for the residents. The Tracy Siepel’s story deploys the victimized side of the no-roof-over-the-head people suffering from the city cleaning organizations, which utilize their belongings (2012). Linda Ellen Lemaster and Steve Pleich suggest that there is too much pressure over the homeless camps, and the accusations are often false (Sillicon Valley Mercury News.com, 2012). Nevertheless, the authorities are unable to cease the disorders due to the introduction of new regulations, which protect the rights of the complaining homeless people. In addition, Soquel (2012) suggests an introduction of special laws and regulations, which will help the homeless get back on their knees by employing into different types of social work.

The problem of homeless people is twofold. First, one has to understand what disadvantages the camps bring into the image of the cities. Also, the spread of homeless communities can become dangerous for the citizens and serve as a bad example in bringing up children. Nevertheless, such attitude and negative performance towards the no-roof individuals does not solve the problem, but only makes it worse. On my opinion, the idea of actually trying to help homeless people by giving them the ability for self-fulfillment is a valuable.
