A critical deadline is approaching for a group of homeless people camping out near Hialeah. By Sunday morning, they need to make a choice – leave or go to jail.

On March 21, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Giménez sent a letter outlining a plan to clean up and close the camp populated by sex offenders, many on probation, attempting to comply with local laws – including one stating that offenders who abused a victim under the age of 16 must live at least 2,500 feet away from schools.

The camp is located along railroad tracks near the intersection of NW 71st Street and 36th Court.

Giménez designated a 45-day period for a plan to shut down the encampment, effective March 22. At the time, Giménez said there were more than 277 transient sex offenders registered at the intersection, 99 of whom were under Florida Department of Corrections or federal supervision.

The plan is a joint effort by all of the departments in Miami Dade County to get the sex offenders out of that area.

“There’s going to be a day where this isn’t going to be here anymore, because it’s not right to the property owners, and it’s not right to you,” said Ron Book, chairman of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust. “There is a health hazard.”

Giménez wrote a memorandum saying in part that the area has become unsafe, unsanitary and potentially breeding mosquitoes, disease and threats to public safety.
