    Hundreds of migrants in Denver tent city evicted by authorities over health, safety – By Trevor Hughes (USA Today) / Jan 3, 2024

    DENVER – Hundreds of migrants living in an illegal tent city near downtown were evicted Wednesday by police and officials who offered them apartments, group shelter space or bus tickets to leave.

    The encampment sprung up several months ago and occupied the spaces between sidewalks and streets for multiple blocks. Many of the migrants are Venezuelans seeking asylum and work permits, but are scheduled for court hearings as far out as 2029.

    The camp displacement came as Republican officials visited the Mexican border to push the Biden administration for immigration reform, a move increasingly echoed by Democratic mayors in New York, Chicago and Denver.
