Caitlyn Jenner, whose net worth is estimated to be roughly $100 million, wants to deal with homelessness by having California’s population of more than 60,000 homeless people moved to “big open fields.”
Jenner said she wanted to get homeless people off the streets by finding “some open land” where they could pitch tents.
“Venice Beach is destroyed,” Jenner said while speaking with the California television network KRON 4 about her recent visit to the area. “They’re destroying Venice Beach. They are destroying all the businesses out there.”

“We have to clean that up,” she added. “We have to provide some place for those people to go, whether it’s an open field out in some place, or if you notice at the veterans’ facility, there’s these big open fields and a lot of places there.”
She went on to claim homeless people were responsible for increases in certain types of crimes.
“We can’t have that on our streets,” Jenner said.
Just days later, the California gubernatorial candidate tweeted a New York Post article about the homeless camps in the Venice Beach neighborhood of Los Angeles, along with the caption: “As Governor I will work with local leaders to continue cleaning up the mess, years of democratic rule have left us with. We have to clean up our streets and increase quality of life for all Californians.”
