Homeless women ordered by a California judge last week to leave a vacant house they have illegally occupied in Oakland for two months were evicted before dawn Tuesday by sheriff’s deputies in a case that highlighted the state’s severe housing shortage and homeless crisis. Alameda County Sheriff’s deputies, some dressed in military-style fatigues, escorted two women with the Moms 4 Housing group from the home and bound their hands with plastic ties, as dozens of activists on the sidewalk chanted ‘Let the moms go! Let the moms go!’ and recorded the chaotic scene with their cellphones. Two men were also arrested. All four had been released by Tuesday afternoon. Video showed one deputy slamming a battering ram against the house’s front door. A GoFundMe for the mothers has raised close to $40,000 after setting an initial goal of $2,000.
