With local shelters at capacity, "there is no place to put them," said Clifton Harris, director of Nashville's Metropolitan Homeless Commission, says of tent-city dwellers.

Thank God there are some US cities where common decency & humanity are not just empty phrases. They call Nashville the Athens of the South & this is why. Let's call these camps what they are, Refugee Camps. It is another in the list of National Disgraces that we now have a refugee problem inside the supposed richest country in the world. When these camps are dispersed by force it is no different than when the Janjaweed disperses camps in the Darfur. Permalink
