San Francisco’s program to house thousands of homeless people in empty hotels to curtail the spread of COVID-19 has been an “absolute disaster,” City Journal contributor Erica Sandberg said.

She made her comments on Wednesday during an interview on the Fox News show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” She had detailed the program in a report for the City Journal.

"It's solving exactly nothing and as a matter of fact, it's making all the problems worse," said Sandberg, who claimed the scene inside hotels is "about as bad as you can imagine, only exponentially worse."

"You are talking drug-fueled parties, overdoses, deaths, people are being assaulted. You have sexual assaults going on, it is pandemonium. It is extremely bad and it needs to stop."

City officials reportedly secured nearly 5,000 rooms at several hotels to house homeless people and other members of at-risk populations.

Writing for the Journal, Sandberg noted that “the hotels were pressured into accepting the homeless guests, though they were also eager for the chance to recoup some revenue lost to the COVID-19 lockdowns.”

And she wrote on Twitter: “How's the ‘hotels for homeless’ plan going? Deception, destruction, dope, and death. Special thanks to the brave & caring souls who spoke out. YOU made this story happen.”
