On the first stop of her California tour, the Republican candidate told residents that they must “take back” and “regulate” public space.

“Those laws must be enforced,” Jenner said.

Protesters reacted to Jenner on Thursday, demanding answers about where homeless people would go if they were forced out of their encampments.

Representatives for Jenner did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti recently signed an ordinance that will prohibit people from sitting, lying down, sleeping or placing their belongings in the “public right-of-way.” The ordinance, which some housing rights advocates say criminalizes homelessness, goes into effect Aug. 29.

Jenner, who identifies as “economically conservative, socially progressive,” is an activist for trans rights in addition to her work in sports and television. She had an income of about $ 500,000 in 2018 and 2019, according to tax returns cited by Bloomberg , down from $ 2.5 million in 2016.

California’s recall election, where candidates are vying to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom, is scheduled for Sept. 14.

California’s previous recall election in 2003 ended with actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who ran as a Republican, replacing then-Democratic Gov. Gray Davis.
