So the proof that's supposed to convince us is the personal experience of an anonymous person on the internet?

Where do they sit now? Certainly not on the benches that are used all day as homeless encampments.

LOL. The shrill personal attacks are always a nice indication that I'm winning the argument.

Any proof for this assertion?

Yay, more name-calling! You guys are master debaters.
(1) What evidence? What are you even talking about? Are you arguing that housing isn't cheaper outside of Santa Barbara? That homeless people have great jobs here they can't move away from? What?
If you choose to be homeless in Santa Barbara rather than live in an apartment in Bakersfield, you deserve my scorn.
(2) I pay my taxes, I obey the law. They do neither. I contribute to this community, while they make it worse. That makes it my community, not theirs. They can GTFO.

I'm making 2 related points.
(1) People that choose to be homeless in Santa Barbara rather than homed in a less desirable community don't deserve sympathy.
(2) Many homeless people are moving here to take advantage of the gullible people of Santa Barbara.

The survey could have asked the question "What was your last address in Santa Barbara?" Then we could check to see if they actually even lived here as non-homeless people.
And property prices here are irrelevant. If you can't afford housing in Santa Barbara, your choices are to move somewhere else or be homeless. If you choose to be homeless, you get no sympathy from me.

sez_me, I think most of these apologists don't spend much time downtown. I live downtown, and I know exactly what you're talking about.

If all you have left is straw-men and name-calling, I'll conclude that everyone is conceding my point that the vast majority of the homeless in SB moved here recently.

Staged videos are not scientific evidence.
