A New York Post story claiming that 20 homeless veterans had been kicked out of hotels in upstate New York to make room for migrants and was later spotlit on Fox News turned out was a lie. Without fact-checking the story or reaching out to the accused hotels for comment, Fox News' Laura Ingraham highlighted it with a chyron that read "New York City Puts Illegals Ahead of Veterans," while Republicans raged at Biden, with Nikki Haley calling it "liberal insanity at work." However, reporting by local outlet the Mid-Hudson News not only found holes in the Post's story, but what appears to be outright fraud, with homeless men telling the Hudson Valley paper they were given food and money to pose as veterans and claim they'd been displaced by migrants at the Crossroads Hotel in the town of Newburgh, New York.
