I just finished watching a segment featuring the housing conditions set up at two U.S. military bases in Texas for those who crossed our border illegally: air-conditioned tents, new beds, three healthy
meals consisting of fresh fruit and vegetables daily, new clothing, health care, education, counseling, etc.
While I don't begrudge them these benefits, according to The Military Wallet, there are an estimated 67,000 homeless vets living in the United States.
• 89 percent received an honorable discharge;
• 67 percent served three years or more;
• 47 percent are Vietnam veterans;
• 40 percent are minorities;
• 15 percent served before Vietnam;
• 5.5 percent are Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
If there's only so much money in the pot, why not give it to those who earned it rather than those who have not?
