A group of nearly two dozen veterans of America’s armed forces were uprooted from the upstate New York hotels that were sheltering them to make room for people who entered the country illegally.
Joe Biden and the Democrats are failing America. Their open borders policies affect American citizens – this time those who signed up to risk all for our nation.
Why has this particular group of veterans been kicked to the curb? The blame belongs to many, but here are the big ones: Joe Biden, Democrat ‘compassion’, and math.

These folks are in the country illegally because Joe Biden refuses to enforce our border laws.
Democrats want to feel good about harboring the ‘huddled masses’ … as long as it’s nowhere near where they live. Mayor Eric Adams bussed these folks out of New York City to upstate New York, where this group of former freedom fighters suddenly found themselves in the crosshairs of ‘compassionate’ Democrat immigration policy.
Finally, there’s cold, hard math. The nonprofit group that was paying the hotels to house these veterans could offer up $88 per day for a veteran to stay at the hotel. They just can’t compete with the up to $190 per night being offered by the government on the taxpayer’s dime.
That’s right, the same government that asked these men to trudge through the jungles of Vietnam are now competing against the nonprofit housing them. They get to make a trip down the road to a seedier hotel, while non-citizens displace them.

The Left always begins by attacking language. We’ve watched for years as they decried the term ‘illegal’ being used to describe people illegally entering the country. ‘People can’t be illegal!’ they say. Yes, they can be in the United States illegally. (And you can miss us right now with this trick of stamping ‘asylum seeker’ on them and pretending it’s different.)
The People of the United States enacted immigration laws through their Congress to provide for orderly immigration into the country.
This is not orderly. This is disorder, and every politician who enables it should be called out and held responsible.
Damn, one homeless guy wiped his ass with the sacred rainbow flag and this is what they get

Democrats are definitely sending mix signals lately on the homeless … or should we say ‘houseless’.
As Twitchy readers might recall, a homeless guy might be a hero if he scared enough passengers on a subway that they tried to restrain him, or he might be a villain if he stepped on the third rail of alphabet advocacy.
Hold on though, wasn’t there just outrage, and I thought @AOC was so upset about the apparent lack of mental health and other services for the homeless? So ok to boot homeless vets?
And the illegals🤔Ohh right they were going to build some kind of housing in @AOC ‘s district.. I…

Perhaps if they had learned to moonwalk a decade ago, Democrats would have some compassion for these homeless veterans?
So I guess the pecking order goes
1. Illegal immigrants
2. Mentally ill homeless
3. Homeless vets https://t.co/zdmmsCWe84

We’re guessing the top spot actually goes to radical LGBTQ activists, based on the fate of the rainbow flag-wiping homeless man mentioned above, but you’re close.
Keep voting Democrat! You’re getting what you’ve asked for.

Elections have consequences.
This is what you voted for. If you voted for Joe Biden, you voted for this. Disgraceful. https://t.co/sslmXDXUtc

Biden voters won’t want to hear this, but reality is hard sometimes.
Yes, you voted for this. You may not have thought you were voting for this, but you were.

He did that, indeed. We hope the double chocolate chip was worth it.
Imagine that. American citizens are being kicked out and illegals are put in their place by Eric Adams.

It’s really not surprising if you’ve listened to what Democrats have been telling us for years.
When normie Biden voters tell you they didn’t vote for what’s happening at the border, show them this and tell them they sure as hell did. He campaigned on it. And they voted for it. pic.twitter.com/M7O7HOCA2r

This is not a crisis that blindsided Joe Biden and the Democrats. This is a direct result of their policy.
No matter where you fall in the Trump/DeSantis primary debate, they both see the problem and the Democrats will only make it worse.
President Biden’s dereliction of duty at the border is costing Americans their lives. In Florida, we’ve taken concrete action to protect our communities by:
– Relocating illegal aliens to sanctuary cities in other states
– Enforcing E-Verify
– Establishing a task force to… pic.twitter.com/DCU6YUBxFT

More of this, please.
Funny! I guess it’s not racist or inhumane when Adams busses the migrants out of the city only when the gov of Texas or Fl does it.
— Angry Mama Bear (@AngryMamaBearNY) May 12, 2023
They have to keep doing it, too. If your government wants to virtue signal their ‘compassion’ by declaring the place you live a ‘sanctuary’ for illegal immigration then they’re volunteering to become a border state, no matter how far inland they are.
Allow them and their citizens to exercise their compassion … and hose U.S. veterans in the process, apparently.
“liberals are compassionate” 🤡
— Jimbo Eagle🦅 (@Jimbo__Eagle) May 13, 2023
America is seeing there is a huge difference between passing policy that allows a person to feel compassionate and the heartless impact of those policies when actualized. Our country really can’t handle much more ‘help’ from walled-off liberals who want to feel good about themselves.
What a mess all democrat led cities are!

Unfortunately, they’re starting to export now.
Saddened & shocked to see veterans being kicked out of homeless shelters. As a veteran myself, it’s a painful reminder of the sacrifices we made for our country. I urge the federal government to address this border crisis ASAP before it gets even worse! #BorderCrisis #Title42 https://t.co/4MfEZj2O2Y

Yeah, Biden will get right on that.
One might say they are simply being replaced. https://t.co/XFGHuekE62

Someone’s going to get the vapors over that particular language.
Look, you don’t have to be a white nationalist nutjob to understand that resources are limited and American citizens will be affected if we don’t control immigration. Just ask these vets.
A damned disgrace. https://t.co/fA1tG1zhxY
