They want to house illegals in hotels and nursing homes. Yet, our veterans remain homeless. Why would they not expect criticism?

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- A U.S. immigration reform group is criticizing plans by the Obama administration to house illegal immigrants in converted hotels and nursing homes.

Spokesman Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform says the government seems to be moving "from detention to hospitality," The Christian Science Monitor reported Wednesday.

"These measures, albeit positive, will, at the end of the day, only relieve some of the suffering our community feels as they are torn apart by our unjust and inhumane immigration laws," said Jorge-Mario Cabrera of the Coalition for Humane Immigration Rights of Los Angeles.

Agreed. If tents are good enough for our soldiers, they're certainly good enough for invaders.

Let me take this opportunity to voice my criticism. My STRONG criticism. Is anyone surprised that this move would be 'criticized'? (If it makes any difference, I'm a veteran).

Just more of the usual blatant Democratic hispandering by the Obama admin for illegal alien future democratic voters, if Obama can get them amnestied, in order to subvert the American voting process and create a permanent Democratic majority with amnestied illegal alien invaders.

Oh boohoo! I can hardly believe this guy said that with a straight face. Nothing but the best for 'our community', right Jorge-Mario?

100 years ago, people like that would have been hung for treason.
Using our tax dollars to do stuff like this, would have been a public revolt.

The people criticizing illegals should be careful they're not sued for violating the "civil rights" of illegal aliens by the ADL or La Raza.
