Are unsaved roaming outside the new Jerusalem

I think we all "know" they don't & are in hell, but what do u make of this:

Rev 22:14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. 15 Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and every one who loves and practices falsehood.

It seem to indicate that they are around...just that they won't be allowed into the City. If that's true, they'll be roaming on the new earth.

There is no mention WHERE outside in this verse. I'm outside the entrance of the Vatican City...but I'm not in close proximity to the place. So, people outside the gates can be in hell without having any contradictions

An atheist can't find God for the same reason a criminal can't find a police officer.
