Eric Adams Asks Court to Suspend New York City’s ‘Right to Shelter’

 From Breitbart:

Adams is seeking to waive the rule when “the City of New York acting through the New York City Department of Homeless Services (“DHS”) lacks the resources and capacity to establish and maintain sufficient shelter sites, staffing, and security to provide safe and appropriate shelter,” according to New York City Law Department’s Jonathan Pines, who wrote the application to Deputy Chief Administrative Judge Deborah Kaplan for the New York City Courts.
