SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Dozens of homeless people have been forced to leave their camp in Sacramento.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office says ever since January, they have been letting the homeless camping in the area know they could not stay because an affordable housing project is slated to be built there.

Many who live nearby are glad the county finally did something to clean the camp up.

"If they were clean I would not have a problem with them being here. I really wouldn't. But look at the mess they create,"  said one woman who lives nearby.

Homeless outreach teams had been working with those who wanted help and protesters came out to advocate for the homeless asking why they couldn't stay.

Two women were arrested for failing to disperse.
