Homeless: Stop encampment sweeps in cold Denver weather
Several people experiencing homelessness and those who support them told the City Council Monday that encampment sweeps in harsh weather must stop. They spoke in support of an ordinance that would disallow sweeps when the temperature dips below 32 degrees. “I have been out there and have watched,” said Richard Creswell during public comment period. “No one can find their gloves.” He said encampment sweepers shake the tents of the unhoused early in the morning, telling them to pack up and get out. He said sometimes crews will use a Bobcat poised to bulldoze a tent to get people to move faster. “They say if you don’t do this, we’re going to throw away your tent.” Creswell said campers often grab the frozen tent poles with their bare hands, which feel like they’re burning. “It’s really cruel.”

Denver bussing migrants to Aurora, council member Jurinsky alleges
Aurora City Council member Danielle Jurinsky said Monday that Denver Mayor Mike Johnston is bussing migrants into Aurora and buying them hotel rooms.

She went on to explain how Denver, a so-called sanctuary city, is bussing migrants out of its boundaries and into Aurora. She said one of her employees who was living at the Quality Inn at Mississippi and Abilene was tossed onto the street because of the incoming migrants. Jurinsky alleged the contract with the hotel doesn’t even have Denver City Council approval yet. She said the mayor must have thought this would fly under the radar. “Little did they ever think there would be an employee of a sitting council member” displaced. She called her employees “hard-working American citizens.” She said her employee and his husband lived at the hotel with their service animal for about a year.
