New York's homeless people are deported from the city by plane

July 31 2009

Power of one of the world's largest cities, New York, decided to take an unprecedented step in order to reduce the number of homeless in the city. Each local tramp offered a plane ticket, so he just left town.

City Hall in New York estimated that the content of homeless people in shelters costing city budget is too expensive. In particular, every year for the maintenance of a family of tramps authorities spend about 36 thousand dollars.

We already know that the program benefited 550 families. The majority of homeless people went to Georgia, Florida and even Puerto Rico. The authorities note that none of those who left families back in the shelter did not return.
