MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A group of people living in a Miami homeless camp is being told to leave.
This is happening in the middle of Homeless Awareness Week.
It’s now so large that the county is deeming it a sanitary nuisance and a safety issue, sending cease and desist notices to dozens who call the street home.
The order comes into effect as the county is promoting its hunger and homelessness awareness week, asking the public to be more considerate of residents without roofs over their heads.
Homeless advocate and Pastor Frank Diaz says most of the men living at the camp are registered sex offenders who have virtually nowhere to go.
Hmm, they will have a problem here as 10,000 homeless people on the registry would like nothing more than to be off the streets, working a job and paying rent, but Florida no-residency laws force them onto the streets. So this shall be interesting to see play out. Do the people in Florida realize they could remove thousands of people from the streets with the stroke of a pen be ending residency restrictions and the registry?
