Miami’s homeless stripped of some rights as judge accepts settlement

Miami's homelessU.S. Judge Federico Moreno on Friday approved changes that will strip the homeless of some of the life-sustaining rights they were granted through a historic settlement reached in Miami almost two decades ago.

Police will now be able to stop homeless people from building fires in parks to cook, or from building makeshift tents to sleep in. The homeless can still sleep on sidewalks, but not if they block the path of pedestrians.

If a homeless person is within a quarter-mile of a public restroom, they can no longer expose themselves to clean or relieve themselves. And convicted sex offenders who are homeless will no longer receive the same life-sustaining benefits as other homeless people.

Moreno’s approval followed a vote in January by Miami city commissioners to go along with the agreement worked out between the city and the American Civil Liberties Union.
