For the homeless, they end up in the shelter system. Good people work at shelters, and I don’t want to say anything bad about them. That said, their overall effectiveness is questionable. Folks often bounce if they’re wanting to drink/do drugs, and it’s not a safe spot for women.

Everyone’s doing their best, but as you can tell from the number of homeless camps in Denver, it’s often just not enough.

Former CO resident here. Not familiar with any migrant transport practices from my time there, but I did learn quite a bit about how the transportation of the homeless was handled from folks who worked in missions. My understanding of how this played out in the past is…

  • Homeless person arrives in area in CO.
  • They’re asked if they have family/friends in any number of cities.
  • The homeless person identifies which city they have such connections in.
  • They’re given transit to the destination.

It wouldn’t surprise me if something like that happened here.

And then they’re shipped off.

The morality of all that is… grey, to say the least. Snagging their consent to solve the immediate problem.
