Last week, mayors for 12 cities in South Orange County met to try and offer a solution for Orange County is homeless problem. A federal judge has ordered cities to figure out a humane solution to the eviction of nearly 1000 people who lived along the Santa Ana River bed under penalty of repealing anti-camping ordinances.

Now, the 12 mayors want to put homeless people in a building that's currently a library in Silverado Canyon. Can they get away with it?
