Fighting Americans are booted for migrants is un-American. A well-known veterans’ advocate made up a story about two dozen ex-military members getting ousted from hotels to make way for migrants in upstate New York, according to a state assemblyman.
Nearly two dozen homeless veterans living in New York hotels had their stays cut short in order to make room for migrants arriving from the U.S. southern border, according to a nonprofit. An executive with the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation said the upstate hotels informed the veterans last week that their bookings were being ended and they would have to find new lodging, the New York Post reported. “Our veterans have been placed in another hotel due to what’s going on with the immigrants,” nonprofit CEO Sharon Toney-Finch told the newspaper. The Yerik Israel Toney Foundation helps homeless and low-income veterans in need of living assistance.
Ms. Toney-Finch said the hotels didn’t explicitly say the veterans were being told to leave so they could accommodate migrant arrivals, but she said the timing of the decision made it clear. She said she suspects the government’s willingness to pay above-market prices to house the migrants is why hotels cooperate. A January court ruling allowed a Holiday Inn in Manhattan to charge up to $190 per night while it served as a shelter for migrants. The hotel’s average daily room rate at the time was $102. “Whether you agree with asylum-seekers being here or not, we can’t just ignore these veterans that are in our charge that we are supposed to protect: the New Yorkers and Americans,” state Assemblyman Brian Maher, a Republican who represents part of the Orange County area, told the Post.
