A homeless person's belongings are seen in Downtown Los Angeles.

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.
