Many are outraged after many homeless Hudson Valley veterans seeking shelter at area hotels were reportedly booted from their homes.

Sharon Toney-Finch, the CEO of Orange County's YIT Foundation which helps homeless veterans with housing, told the New York Post 20 veterans were removed from hotels in Orange County due to the ongoing migrant issue.

Update: Politicians now say the report from Toney-Finch isn't true.
