AMERICA LAST: Boston to Use Former Veterans' Shelter to House Illegal Migrant Overflow; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.02.24

According to a New York Post report, a former veterans’ home in Boston will be converted into a shelter to house illegal migrants; 100 migrant families and pregnant women will be housed.

The move is being called “disgusting” by residents and social media users.

Democratic Gov. Maura Healey announced last week she would convert the historic Chelsea Soldiers’ Home — which was vacant and scheduled for demolition — into a shelter for migrants.

From The New York Post:

But the proposal comes as veterans continue to face homelessness in the state, with 545 vets experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2023, according to US Housing and Urban Development data.

“I can’t believe the Chelsea Soldiers’ Home which is for the Vets is going to [be] used for the immigrants overflow,” George Belmonte, a Massachusetts resident, commented on Facebook.

“How about taking care of the homeless vets first?” he asked.

“I am all for helping people but how about taking care of those already here and homeless.”

Denise Levy also questioned why migrants would be housed at the facility for free while the veterans “who fought for our country are paying to live there.”

“Disgusting!!!” she wrote.

Massachusetts lawmakers claim the new migrant housing will not affect services for veterans.

“Massachusetts has proven that we can take care of veterans and families experiencing homelessness in our state,” Secretary of Veterans Services Dr. Jon Santiago said in a statement, according to the Herald
