San Francisco has undertaken a significant effort to clean up streets ahead of a U.S.-China summit next week, including the removal of homeless camps around the city.

“I know folks are saying, ‘Oh they’re just cleaning up this place because all those fancy leaders are coming to town.’ That’s true, because it’s true — but it’s also true for months and months and months before APEC [Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit], we’ve been having conversations,” California Gov.

Some people even suggested that Xi Jinping visit the southern border just so the Biden administration can keep illegals out for once.

Next he should visit our southern border, so he can shut that down too.pic.twitter.com/14pRtNyiDd
