Months after Spokane passed an ordinance making it illegal to panhandle on street corners and freeway entrances and exits, the panhandling hasn't stopped. Men and women are still there and now they've also moved into neighborhoods - hidden from law enforcement.It started with fruit peddlers, whom KXLY discovered were actually illegal immigrants dropped off on neighborhood corners by an Oregon farmer. Then panhandlers started moving up from I-90 and into neighborhood areas/Colleen O'Brien, KXLY. More here.

I offer to pay them for work they can do for me.
I trust that my regular charitable contributions are enough to help the people who need it.
