HONOLULU - The city is planning another homeless sweep in urban Honolulu- and it's happening on Christmas Eve. Police officers will be in Waikiki before dawn - from 3 to 5:30 a.m. - on Monday.

The city posted the notice to its website on Friday. The city periodically removes homeless from public areas when the parks get overrun with homeless people and their tents, tarps, and dogs.

The ACLU of Hawaii speaks out against the move. Executive director Josh Wisch told us, "The city's continuing effort to criminalize the houseless are - in our view- not only illegal and constitutionally questionable, but they're ineffective and cruel. Doing this on Christmas Eve is unconscionably cruel."

We asked the city for comment. We haven't heard back yet.
