A California hair salon owner says she is forced to relocate her business because of the problems of homeless people sleeping outside her store.
Elizabeth Novak, owner of a hair salon in downtown Sacramento, posted a video on Twitter on Friday describing how she often finds people camping in tents opposite her front door.
She explained how the vagrancy crisis that is affecting the state affects long-term business owners and that her shop has been broken into and even attacked.
Novak, who has been running her salon for 15 years, said in her social media message that she often has to clean up urine, droppings and needles left by rough sleepers in front of her door.

Novak hurled the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, in her social media tirade, and blamed the Democrat for introducing new laws that prevent police arresting homeless people for drug offenses. Pictured clothing remained outside of her salon in the city center
She addressed her concerns directly to Governor Gavin Newsom and said in a sincere plea for action: & I want to know what you are going to do for us Californians? I have had a business in the center of Sacramento for 15 years – a successful business. I have to leave my company now, I have to close my store.
& # 39; I just want to tell you what happens when I go to work. I have to clear the poop and the puddle from my door. I have to clean up the syringes.
& # 39; I have to politely ask the people I care for, I care for those who are homeless, move their tents to the door of my company.
& # 39; I have to fight against people entering my shop who are homeless and use drugs because you will not arrest them for drug offenses. I have to apologize to my customers why they can't come in because someone is sleeping and they don't get the help they need. & # 39;
At the start of the passionate clip, Novak says he has repeatedly sent videos, emails and tweets, as well as countless phone calls to Newsom in an attempt to get a response.

Novak also threw the & # 39; liberal ideology & # 39; of the Democratic governor if & # 39; not working & # 39; and criticized him for being in his million dollars at home and not having to look at what to see & # 39 ;.
She added: & # 39; I am talking to the police officers, they said I should contact you (Newsom). They want to do something and that is not possible, you have changed the laws.
& # 39; So I want to know what you are going to do for us, those who are unhappy? You want to make us a refuge, you want to make it comfortable for everyone, except for the people who work hard and have done their best to get along with each other in life and now we have to change that because of your laws. & # 39;
Novak's Twitter account is now private, but has been viewed around 25,000 times.
Novak told us yesterday Fox & friends that she would have to move her case because of how bad the situation had become.
& # 39; Many people asked why they go directly to the governor, why it takes it to that level and I think it is an SOS for all small business owners. And not just entrepreneurs, but employees in the city center.
& # 39; When I come to work, I am never sure where I am going. I broke in, my glass broke. Every week I clean up human droppings from my door, cups of urine, stuff like that. & # 39;
She added: & # 39; Many people say it's a housing problem – it's a drug problem. & # 39;
