RNC Video: Homeless say St. Paul is trying to hide them during the RNC

A homeless shelter 200 yards from the Republican National Convention venue will be staying open next week, which is why some homeless feel like the city of St. Paul is trying to hide them from public view, either behind black tarps or in jail. MnIndy's Steve Perry and I met with residents of the Dorothy Day Center yesterday to hear their concerns. The four-day RNC has a $50 million budget; the Dorothy Day Center, run by Catholic Charities, spends $35 million in an entire year.
