A 94-year-old veteran was among those kicked out of a New York City nursing home to make room for illegal immigrants, Fox News reported.
Frank Tammaro, a lifelong New Yorker, enjoyed the senior center he lived in until he was told to find new living arrangements, according to Fox News. Over 130,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the last year and a half, The New York Times reported.
“I felt horrible,” Tammaro told Fox News about being forced to move. “It’s no joke getting thrown out of a house.”
Tammaro later learned that migrants were being moved into the senior center he once lived in. “I do get upset when I see them handing out all this money and all these things, and I’m paying taxes and getting kicked out,” Tammaro told Fox News. “I’ve never got anything from the city. Or the state.”
Tammaro, who served in the Army during the Korean War, found another senior citizen center, but moved after he was hospitalized following a fall, according to Fox News. He now lives with his daughter, Barbara Annunziata.
“I don’t understand it at all. It’s not fair to anybody,” Annunziata told Fox News. “These migrants, they’re getting everything. They’re getting everything and I can’t get nothing for [Tammaro]. It angers me.”
Democratic Mayor Eric Adams announced a number of budget cuts, including closing libraries on Sundays and freezing hiring for the New York Police Department as part of the efforts to address the costs of housing migrants arriving in the city. New York’s state government has spent $1.5 billion to aid New York City, which is spending $8 million a day while dealing with the influx of migrants, Politico reported.
Efforts by Adams to bus migrants to other localities in New York have been resisted by elected officials from those counties.
Adams did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation
