Tale of migrants displacing homeless veterans is a hoax

A viral tale was born when the New York Post published an article (here) on May 12, 2023, claiming that “nearly two dozen struggling homeless veterans have been booted from upstate hotels to make room for migrants.” The Post’s source was Sharon Toney-Finch, CEO of the Yerik Israel [...]

GOP Christmas Eve migrant stunt reeks of cruelty

How GOP Texas governor spends taxpayer money

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) has spent $12.7 million busing border jumpers to Washington D.C., New York City, and Chicago (see story here).
