A 95-year-old decorated Korean War veteran was given less than two months’ notice after a New York nursing home was sold to become a facility for illegal immigrants flowing into the city.
Veteran Frank Tammaro joined Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY-11), for a press conference on Monday to express his frustrations about the unfair conditions.
“The thing I’m annoyed about is how they did it, it was very disgraceful what they did to the people in Island Shores,” Tammaro said, referencing the assisted living facility he was in.
He said that Island Shores “gave us time to get out,” but not enough time to protest the decision to boot residents – which Tammaro said he tried to do.
“Then one day there was a notice on the board. I think that gave us a month and a half to find out where we were going to go,” he said. “I thought my suitcases were going to be on the curb because I’m not that fast.”

According to New York City Councilman David Carr, the Department of Social Services has confirmed that a migrant facility would be opening in this facility in the coming weeks.
Rep. Malliotakis was just as angered as Tammor stating that this shows “our country and our city’s priorities are backward.”
“My blood pressure went through the roof when I found out Homes for the Homeless cut a deal with the City of New York to turn Island Shores into a migrant shelter,” the GOP lawmaker said.
“Our tax dollars as citizens of New York should not be utilized to house citizens of other countries, especially at the expense of our senior citizens and veterans who put their lives on the line, paid taxes their whole lives, and built our communities.”
Due to President Joe Biden’s weak immigration policy, reports show that New York has had an influx of over 100 thousand immigrants into the state since the beginning of 2023.
