KTRK-13 reports that City Council is considering expanding the so-called “civility ordinance” that targets homeless squatters.

Councilmember Ada Edwards

The usual Councilmember was not happy that her colleagues are considering the issue:

“It’s amazing to me that here in 2006, that we’re still doing the same type of thing, just prohibiting people from existing,” said Houston City Councilmember Ada Edwards. “I didn’t know it was against the law to sit in a public space in America.”

If the ordinance passes, perhaps violators can be transported to “exist” on Ada Edwards’ sidewalk. Heck, maybe she’ll even invite them to “exist” on her front lawn! That would mark her as a true progressive.
