“We are working on getting the entire city ready to open up for people who are homeless, and so we’re not just going to have people who can’t get out of their cars and can’t make their own way in a way that they can afford to,” he said.
But we want to be able to have a real sense of safety for people and their families, and that’s something that we’re taking seriously and I think everyone in the city of DC should be concerned about.” “
I’m not saying we’re going off-book.

On Wednesday, the city and the US Justice Department announced they had reached a deal to shutter the “no-haggle” policy, which has allowed police to turn away homeless people and the mentally ill for days without a court order.
Under the new policy, people will be required to pay $100 for an escort service, which would include a $30 fee for the escort and $35 for a ride home.
“The policy is no longer going to apply to anyone who has been found to be an uncooperative escort,” Assistant US Attorney Michael T. Fitzpatrick said in a statement.
“No one has been denied service because they have refused to cooperate with police.
The policy has never been enforced, and has not caused the city or the Justice Department to spend a single penny on the program.”
“There are many more issues that I believe are going to need to be addressed, and there will be a lot more money for our courts,” he added.
“This is a small, symbolic gesture, but it’s one of many.”
Police said the policy had resulted in hundreds of arrests, more than $3 million in unpaid fines and hundreds of people being kicked out of shelters.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday that the Department of Justice is investigating whether the Trump administration had “failed to protect the integrity of the system” by not making a full public accounting of the millions of dollars it has spent on escort services.
According to the Post, the Justice department is also investigating whether any members of Trump’s administration may have violated federal law by failing to notify the agency when they received money from a state or local government or a foreign government.
The report, which came just weeks after Trump’s budget director, Mick Mulvaney, resigned after he was charged with accepting more than half a million dollars in cash from lobbyists, does not indicate if any of those people are currently facing charges.
