Tent City4_7

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Tent City residents have to pack up and move by Friday or go to court. Over the weekend, homeless campers set up near Lomas and I-25 on land owned by the Department of Transportation.

On Tuesday, DOT and state police served people with eviction notices alerting campers they have until 1:30 p.m. Friday to move out. This is the fourth location they have been evicted from and they are tired of moving.

Campers were evicted from a private lot last month. Before that, they were forced off a strip of land near the Rail Yards which is city land. No word on where they plan to move next. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
