New Law Exiles Homeless People from South Carolina Capital | NationofChange

All over the country we are hearing about the poor treatment of homeless people. In New York City, it is actually illegal to donate food to homeless shelters — a policy that came on the heels of actions taken in the 1990s by Major Rudolph Giuliani, who “cleaned up the streets” by essentially sweeping the homeless population under the rug.Now, these actions are spreading to the south. In the North Carolina capital of Raleigh, it has become illegal to feed the homeless. And South Carolina has even taken things a step further, enacting what amounts to a policy of “exile” for those without homes.
