If It's Freezing, New York's Homeless Are Forced To Go To Shelters

New York City has a problem with homelessness, and it seems to have one too many people trying to fix it.
"It's not right to leave brothers and sisters on the street corner. It's not right to leave children on the street corners," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a rally.
On Sunday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order mandating that authorities take homeless people to shelters whenever the outside temperature hits the freezing point. It's an effort the governor says is "about compassion." But it's also an effort some say fuels a fire of dissent between the governor and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
