Sacramento police move in on homeless encampment

Sacramento police have started moving homeless people from a tent city. Up to 100 tents have lined the banks of the American River, north of Downtown.

Wednesday was the deadline to vacate the site. The camp's residents say they'd rather face being arrested for staying put rather than being herded from place to place.

Police emphasize the tent city violates Sacramento's camping ordinance.
