New York Regime Signs Executive Order Requiring All Homeless People To Enter A Shelter When Temperatures Are Below Freezing “By Force If Necessary”…

“All your liberties are belong to us”…. it’s for your own good comrade citizen!

(NEW YORK) New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order Sunday requiring homeless people throughout the state to be removed from the streets and brought to shelters when the temperature is below freezing.

In his executive order Sunday, Gov. Cuomo directed state agencies to take “all necessary steps to identify individuals reasonably believed to be homeless and unwilling or unable to find the shelter necessary for safety and health in inclement winter weather, and move such individuals to the appropriate sheltered facilities.”

In recent years, homelessness in New York City has reached its highest levels since the Great Depression. In October 2015, the Coalition for the Homeless estimated over 59,500 homeless in New York City alone, including over 23,000 homeless children. And larger homeless populations have coincided with more shelter visits: The number of New Yorkers sleeping each night in municipal shelters is now 86 percent higher than it was a decade ago.

“Everybody makes a New Year’s resolution or many people do. Well, this is a State’s New Year resolution, a New Year resolution for the State of New York and in many ways, its keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, right? Which makes it very simple” Cuomo says in an interview with NY1 Sunday morning. “It’s about love. It’s about compassion. It’s about helping one another and basic human decency.”  (read more)

        This reminds me of something my niece did while she was in college in Nashville. She and a friend had picked up some fast food breakfast and were headed back to her apartment. While at a light they spotted a woman in a housecoat and slippers sitting on a bench in the front yard of a large home. They pulled over, got out and took the “homeless” woman some food and a blanket my niece had in her car. The two girls were feeling proud of themselves for helping a homeless person.

        When they reached the woman with the food and blanket she informed them that it was her front yard and she was drinking her morning coffee, it was then that they realized the woman’s housecoat and slippers were very expensive.

      Umm, the ink is hardly dry on the ‘Executive Order’ and you want to call lawyers hypocrites for not stopping it?! Methinks you already have your Enemies in your Sight, can’t wait to pull the trigger.
      Clue #1: Law does not allow suits or challenges to such ‘Orders” in the abstract. You must have a specific case that has occurred. This is wise, since the Law wants to deal with Reality, not political grandstanding, or over-reaction to it.
      Clue #2: For a court challenge, you want a case that shows up the Order in the worst way, best case you can get.
      Clue #3: No ‘Executive Order’ can expand the powers of a Gov [or Prez] beyond what an enacted Law already allows.
      Clue #4: No one who knows Cuomo thinks this anything but a big Political Phart. He is all about grandstanding. He tried to make Ebola into the End of the World.

      Anyone who takes this seriously should recalibrate. If this includes Sd, SBI.

      Sharpton’s been string racial fires in NYC since the 1980s. Rev Al, the former FBI paid informant and cocain dealer, does not agitae in the winter months. It’s too cold. He sets his fires from spring till fall when the weather is nicer and he can be assured of large, unruly mobs who have lots of free time because they’ve never had a job. But not enough of them want to come out in freezing temps.
      In the good old days the fair weather riots always had a time limit because on check issuing day the table had to line up at the welfare office.

      Andrew Cuomo loves press attention, that’s all this is. They’ll be a highly publicized roundup up at park or two & some of the higher rent neighborhoods, but Cuomo never actually follows through on things. He just likes basking in press attention. He also hates the NYC mayor, so he wanted to get on the record with some kind of homeless announcement before the mayor did.

      It’s very sad to watch the rapid decline of NYC in such a short time under the direction of the new communist mayor, Bill deBlasio. Crime up, graffitti reappearing, rapes in Central Park & the subways and yes, homeless everywhere. The pre-Guliani nightmare is returning. Who will be the new Rudy to step up and takeover in 2018 ? Nobody’s on the horizon.

      Many people have had the experience of being robbed, raped, assaulted at shelters. For some homeless, their particular mental illness makes them strongly not want to be around other people. Some are homeless because they cannot stand rules (which also precludes a job) and they want to feel free.

      I imagine most homeless know where the homeless shelters are. If they choose not to go, I would guess they have a reason. Forcing them may only lead to serious problems.

      There was a large institution near my hometown which was recently closed. The people who got help at a mental health clinic there now no longer have those services. There IS a smaller “day care” for the mentally unwell to hang out a, which is located in a bad neighborhood in town. There is no longer a place to house the bad cases which should NOT be in the “community”. Now, the other thing that happened, is that the docile type who are, say, moderate/severe downs syndrome, have become little gold mines for services like The Handicapped Children Assoc. The various “helping hands” type associations go around and buy nice homes in better-type neighborhood, gut them, refurbish them top to bottom. Windows, roofs, interior walls and floors, new commercial grade appliances, new hvac units, the whole thing. Then the properties are landscaped. Lawn-care pros maintain the property. Well, the people who live in the neighborhood think some nice folks with decent means are moving in – only to discover that mentally disabled patients are going to be housed there. There is at least one employee to each patient round the clock. AND every dime that was used to buy, remodel, furnish, etc. comes from the taxpayer. AND these homes are tax exempt, and the utilities, upkeep, lawn services, patient aides, meals, clothing – all paid for by the taxpayer.

    Many homeless people freeze to death when the weather drops below freezing. A legal tool is needed to be able to bring these people in, over-riding their own wishes.

    I have worked with the homeless in various capacities, and have skulked around hearing wisdom from a leading expert on figuring out where the homeless live so that you can “enumerate” them.

    I just had a great conversation with a homeless guy I met for the first time tonight – long story, but he already knew my wife and kids, and was eager to compliment me on my beautiful – beautiful on the inside – family.

      Something more troubling to me is the 23,000 homeless CHILDREN in NYC. In this modern society why aren’t these kids in foster homes or orphanages? If a parent can’t even provide shelter shouldn’t the hapless kids, who have no choice in the matter, be taken from the parents until or IF the time comes when the parent(s) can provide for them?

          Good point about the foster system. An unintended consequence is that you get a lot of people putting up with the rigmarole because they need the money. So, you get pretty far down the barrel with some – not all – but some foster parents.

          Here is where I think many conservatives might see things as I do: I believe we have to strive to have a moral nation. Leaving kids to the four winds when the parent gets snatched up for something is not moral. So, we have foster care. And there is only one way to do foster care: the moral way. if this happens to work well at double the funding we do now, then that is the answer. That is how we act morally.

          This is part of what I see as a “democrat” agenda (in my fantasy world, where democrats are Americans and not Marxists): figuring out what we need to do because it is moral, then figuring out what it costs. All the while making sure to not encroach on the liberty of private business (I am against public funding of radio or TV stations) and watching out for unintended consequences, such as fostering dependency.

Of course if we’re talking about a person who’s so far gone they literally are incapable of making that decision, that’s one thing.

        TFG: Yes, Baker Act addresses this. But with Baker Act civil commitment, you have an individual who has gotten into bad shape – usually “imminent harm to self or others.”

        But when the weather gets cold, you cannot carry out short-term civil commitment warrants – for a civil commitment warrant, you need to know the individual, and get a judge to approve the temporary over-riding of civil rights.

        When the weather drops to 25F, you could not do that – you have a class of people – it is more akin to emergency response to a community’s tornado-related power outage. –You don;t wait for each home to call in and report that their power is out, and send out a crew to restore power to that home. You call in the manpower and equipment from the surrounding areas, and make a mass action.

      TLD, I wonder if, in your experience with homeless people, you have learned why, in general, they would choose NOT to go to the many shelters that are available to them? I’m not familiar with the multitude of shelters available in NYC, but I do volunteer work for a shelter here in the Atlanta metro. We get a lot of women with children at our shelter. It is part of a Christian outreach ministry, and we provide job training, shelter, meals, clothing, etc., for homeless people who want a hand up getting their lives back on track. We do not allow alcohol or drugs, and if you’re mentally ill you have to stay on your meds or you are out.

      I remember reading in the past about the ACLU going after shelters where there is prayer or religious services and where alcohol and drug use is not permitted. Apparently the ACLU thinks it is unreasonable for a homeless person to have to stay sober or listen to prayer in exchange for a bed and hot meals. Would this executive order override the ACLU’s objections, or would the NYC shelters have to suspend their rules, thereby causing the shelters to be unsafe for many of the homeless?

    I used to live in Grand Junction, Colorado. Every year (when the weather began to get cold) we would get an influx of homeless people coming in on Greyhound. It turned out that Salt Lake City would round them up and buy them one-way tickets to Grand Junction so that the authorities in Salt Lake City wouldn’t have to deal with them in the winter. My suggestion was to extend their trip by a couple hundred miles and buy them one way tickets to Vail (or Aspen) where the “compassionate” people lived. (The Grand Junction city fathers never thought that was a workable plan but hey, a guy has to hope doesn’t he?)

    Maybe New York City could just buy them all one-way tickets to Washingto DC (where all the “compassionate” people work)!

    Time to dress up like I’m poor and get thrown into a shelter against my will and have the courts take care of my retirement.

    I say OPEN the doors at the United Nation Building, they can have a couple of the homeless be walking billboards outside to say what the lunch special is in the cafeteria. Oh ya, and every Delegate of the UN must come up with a qualified dietary menu approved by Mrs. “O”, Hitlery Clinton will make sure that all the vegetables, chickens, eggs, milk, cheeses and condiments are from a Sustainable Garden rooftop project supplied by a multi million dollar Grant, on the tax payer’s dime, a five star Chef from PBS will provide samples at the entrance, along with Big Bird. Napkins and comment cards will be supplied by George Soros. For further protection of the Homeless; all the peep holes in the Woman Rest rooms plugged up and or repaired, William Jefferson is now traveling with Hitlery!

    The Staue of Liberty is green because she is sick that New York has become a Communist state. We as Americans should demand that New York give the Statue of Liberty back to the United States and threaten to remove the states star from the American Flag if they don’t shape up and get with the program. Good God people, come back to America, land of the semi-free and where you can still enjoy a cola or two, without being carded. 😡 New York makes my blood boil, damn communists are ruining that state.

    FTA: “In recent years, homelessness in New York City has reached its highest levels since the Great Depression.”

    How is this possible?
    The Pres is a Democrat.
    The Gov is a Democrat.
    The Mayor is a Democrat/Socialist.

    Shouldn’t NY be a Utopia?

    Here, in Utah, last year, a single homeless person froze to death while laying down behind a dumpster overnight in winter.
    Salt Lake City (new lesbian mayor) opened its Main Library downtown to the homeless 24/7 as a direct result.

      Why is a library being used as a homeless shelter? Good grief!

      Homelessness exploded towards the end of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s tenure, from what I have seen as a NYC resident . He did much to financially strengthen NYC, but the downside is sky high rents and costs of living . NYC has excellent Medicaid services for the poor, but the homeless problem seems insurmountable . In the past 5 years, I have seen many more homeless people than in the past and it hurts my soul to know that they are out there in this freezing weather. I say that clearly mentally ill people pose the greatest challenge .
