Los Angeles is fighting to seize and destroy some homeless people's belongings.

Today it will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a lower-court ruling that prevented it from taking items that were temporarily left behind by the homeless on the streets of downtown.

It's sparked a heated battle between homeless advocates and those looking to clean up the streets.

We're joined by Andrew Blankstein who's been covering this for the Los Angeles Times
