"What are all these people building beds on the streets?"
"I'm sorry, could you repeat the question, I don't understand."
"The people, they are lying down in the streets everywhere. It is not very pretty. Why is the city promoting that?"
Again, more confusion. Then, clarity: "Ah, you're talking about the homeless, yes. Portland has a pretty significant problem with homelessness."
"Where are all these refugees coming from?"
"I don't think most of them are refugees."
"So these are not foreigners? They're American citizens? These are your own people?"
"Yup, most of them."
[Another long pause.]
"Wow, that's unbelievable."
