(UPDATE) Charity Says Homeless Veterans Removed From NY Hotels to Make Room for Migrants
“Joe Biden and Mayorkas should burn in hell for this.”
Please see the update at the bottom of this post for information, indicating that the claim giving rise to this controversy may have been false.
A non-profit that helps to house homeless veterans called the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation, claims that vets have been removed from some New York hotels to make room for migrants.
The foundation moved quickly and has managed to place the veterans in other hotels, but this is still outrageous.
The New York Post reported:
Homeless vets are being booted from NY hotels to make room for migrants: advocates
Nearly two dozen struggling homeless veterans have been booted from upstate hotels to make room for migrants, says a nonprofit group that works with the vets.
The ex-military — including a 24-year-old man in desperate need of help after serving in Afghanistan — were told by the hotels at the beginning of the week that their temporary housing was getting pulled out from under them at the establishments and that they’d have to move on to another spot, according to the group and a sickened local pol.
“Our veterans have been placed in another hotel due to what’s going on with the immigrants,’’ said Sharon Toney-Finch, the CEO of the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation.
Toney-Finch, a disabled military veteran, created YIT to raise awareness of premature births, as well as helping the homeless and low-income military service veterans in need of living assistance.
“One of the vets called me on Sunday,’’ she said.
“He told me he had to leave because the hotel said the extended stay is not available. Then I got another call.
“We didn’t waste any time,’’ the advocate said.
“That’s when we started on Monday to organize when and where to move them all.
Toney-Finch says that she believes this was all about money. She claims that the city of New York is willing to pay more for the hotel rooms than her non-profit organization.
More from the Daily Mail:
Of the 20 veterans being kicked from the hotels, she claimed 15 had been booted from the Crossroads Hotel in Newburgh, Orange County.
The five others were removed from the Super 8 and Hampton Inn & Suites in Middletown, roughly 70 miles north of Manhattan.
All 20 of the displaced ex-military members have been moved to a separate hotel in Hudson Valley, but Toney-Finch said the ordeal has been heartbreaking for the struggling veterans.
‘Now we have to work from ground zero,’ she added. ‘We just lost that trust.’

Veterans only served the country, illegal aliens serve the Democratic Party. That’s obviously a much higher calling to the left. https://t.co/5PLxtHnixN

This is about as ruthless, coldblooded, and incredibly heinous as anything Biden and Democrats have ever done. Kicking American veterans out of their lodging to make way for illegal immigrants? What country IS this? https://t.co/rW08TgvuN7

This is not your grandfather's Democrat party…. favoring Third World illegal alien MS 13 gangbangers, sex traffickers et al. over US veterans.

The message is that if you serve this country you will be cast aside as our government chases after foreigners. No loyalty. No honor. Truly shameful. https://t.co/itdBKRah6a

Some leftists are trying to say this OK because the veterans were just moved to other hotels.
It’s not OK. It’s disgusting and indefensible.

Why don’t the vets just go and buy their own homes? /
That, and vets make pretty good money and get to work with animals and stuff!
I took my bear to the vet and the vet said it was illegal for me to have a bear.
I was worried. I thought I was in big trouble for breaking the law. But she just smiled and said that since it was an illegal bear, treatment would be free. I left with 500 lbs of free bear food, a free bear phone and 50 gallons of baby bear formula,
You mention baby bear formula. I still remember a picture from dedes ago. It was a young man, patchy red beard, bottle-feeding a little orphaned grizzly cub.
Doing that is on my bucket list.
That sounds nice. Thumbs up!
UPDATE: Daily Wire reporting today that the entire report is a hoax by a source at the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation. 🙁
Why don’t they buy the illegal aliens homes to live in back in their home country wherever the hell they came from? It would be a helluva lot cheaper than taking care of them for the rest of their lives and their children’s lives and their children’s children’s lives here.
Because we don’t accept absentee votes from Honduras.
Too bad. You can buy a house in Honduras for less than it would cost for a week in a hotel in NYC.
I don’t see why not. Dead Democrats continure to cast absentee ballots and the place they go when they die is further away than Honduras.
Dogs and Soldiers Keep Off the Grass.
Democrats only like veterans and the military when it’s time to vote, especially when they can ignore the absentee ballots.
Otherwise, I guess we can all get fucked.
The Democrats know that illegal immigrants are a sure thing for votes.
Spoiler alert…. watch as Constitutional Republic is fundamentally transformed into a communist state. Oh..but the Left says Social Democratic country… as their far Left breezes by to communism. You will own nothing and be happy. Marx, Lenin, Mao, and Berry are smiling. Final choice for the living… Communist slavery or Islamic dhimmitude?
This is what New York voted for. Keep sending them illegal aliens by the busloads until they get the message.
NYC has plenty to Bragg about.
Kamala has put her foot down and decreed that in future only battered women would be ejected from their shelters to make room for the undocumented rapists and murderers.
Does that include real women and fake women?
Asking for a friend.
You just really suck at what you try to do here.
Really? What I try to do here is gain the furious ire of impotent, little homosexualists. I feel I have succeeded.
Nothing’s too good for the troops, so that’s what they get.
The only redeeming feature of the diversity olympics is in revealing who has priority in the hierarchy. No surprises revealed here. When Vets don’t come home and make it by blending into civilian society they are shunted aside in favor of other groups. This is our history as a Nation.
New York [state and city] is a Leftist controlled polity. Like in all Leftist areas, those who defended our country are considered to be far lower in priority and status than those who are invading our country for the purpose of destroying it. That is the status of things in the multiple hostile nations of the formerly United States.
“For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an` Chuck him out, the brute!
But it’s ” Saviour of ‘is country ” when the guns begin to shoot”
We’re at the point where illegal aliens — yes, “aliens,” not “migrants” or whatever other contrived, dishonest propaganda euphemism the vile Dumb-o-crats employ to characterize these invaders — now receive more deference, respect, care, sympathy and attention from the Dumb-o-crats than actual law-abiding, tax-paying American citizens.
