“The Biden Admin just dropped $86 Million dollars to get hotel rooms for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS yet we have zero dollars going to our homeless veterans who are at a high risk of suicide. UNACCEPTABLE. UNAMERICAN,” Cawthorn wrote. Facts First: Cawthorn was not even close to correct about federal spending on homeless veterans. The Department of Veterans Affairs will spend “more than $2 billion” in the 2021 fiscal year “supporting Veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness,” department spokesman Terrence Hayes said in an email. The American Rescue Plan pandemic relief law President Joe Biden signed this month — which Cawthorn voted against — itself provides significant funding to address housing insecurity, both in general and among veterans in particular.
