Hawaii is hoping to take the burden off its welfare system by saying aloha to its 17,000 homeless residents.
The state will offer one-way tickets home to any eligible homeless person to anywhere in the continental United States.
Hawaii has allotted $100,000 for a three year trial run of the so-called 'return-to-home' program, which could also even offer participants beds on cruise ships bound for their homes.

Libs are all down with the proles until they have to share space with them.
And the home states should reciprocate.
NJ realtors got in a trouble a few years ago for (successfully) steering black homebuyers to Altoona PA. Odd story...
I’ll donate to the Hawaiian effort simply because it’ll cheese off the liberals!
Great deal! I can save a chunk of vacation money by purchasing a one-way ticket to Hawaii. They will pay for my ticket home.
That will help.
It will reduce the 17,000 homeless to 16,900 and free up some oceanside benches.
Hang on... Hawaii is setting aside $100,000 for 17,000 homeless one-way airfare?
DIVIDE $100,000 by 17,000 and how much do you have for airfare?
That’s $5.88 per homeless person. I get charged more than that going to and from Manhattan by train.
How far can they go on $5.88 each?
How close do the ships lugging Chinese containers come to Hawaii on the way to the west coast?
It’s a trial run. 17k is the assumed total number of “homeless”
Move them to NObama’s future digs.
How many Hawaiian natives would take this offer?
OMG--that's less than checking one bag on the airline.
I’d guess about zero, unless somebody could convince them that homeless in Cali is a better deal than homeless in Hawaii.
And in a few years they’ll be able to bunk in at the Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Library / Choom Gang Museum / Homeless Shelter.
I think they’re probably not expecting most of them to take up the offer.
RE: bunk in at the Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Library
Is he planning to build it in Illinois or Hawaii ( or maybe Kenya or Indonesia )?
I hear Caliph Baraq will be the first to have three branches, all with gold fixtures:
Hawaii, Cali, and NYC.
One of the government officials quoted in the article pretty much admits that “this is an open invitation for people to buy one-way tickets to Hawaii”.
...see post #7...
He had no idea that Fed Reserve created bogus minibucks could purchase the affection of the voters.
Doesn’t look like they got it too bad. If all else fails, I’d go “homeless in Hawaii” for my retirement plan.
Hoover was a victim of the depression
Obama planned an executed ours.

Well, that can be serious federal trouble if they do that. The regulators don’t play around when it comes to “housing discrimination”.
Wouldn’t it just be cheaper to ship them all to Kahoolawe?
You get a Mae West and a map.
“How far can they go on $5.88 each?”
About two miles offshore, I think. Maybe Hawaii thinks that’s far enough.
Geez... that’s less than $6 per person... cheap folks, there in the islands.
Aye, that might do it, or perhaps the return trip to China
I’ve seen these massive camps of homeless myself...biggest in the nation.
“The regulators dont play around when it comes to housing discrimination.”
I’m sure of it. Fortunately, we’ve become so overwhelmed with Hispanics that I don’t think the towns around me will be required to diversify anymore (unless it is to bring Americans back).
