Registrants are still at the Miami-Dade Encampment. Some, because their GPS monitoring will trigger if they leave the area (probation has them designated to) and they don’t want to violate probation and go back to prison for that. Others, because they realize there’s noplace for them to go and they will be violating the overnight camping ordinance wherever they are, so might as well stay put.

News crews are on site, waiting for enforcement action. This NBC6 video is from earlier this AM, where you can still see tents lined up.

Ultimately, some may simply wait to be arrested – a roof over their head, running water and a reprieve from the heat and mosquitoes, courtesy of the county jail sounds better than the inhuman conditions out there. Unfortunately for those on probation, that might include a return to prison. With no alternatives; they are screwed either way.
