A wave of frustration has swept over Army and Navy fans who had planned to attend the much-anticipated Army-Navy game at Gillette Stadium this December. Several military families and veterans have found their hotel reservations unexpectedly canceled, with the rooms being allocated to accommodate illegal immigrants under Massachusetts’ “right-to-shelter” law.
According to reports from American Military News, Washington Examiner, and FAIR, the cancellation of hotel reservations is a direct result of the state’s right-to-shelter law. This law requires that adequate housing be provided for homeless families and immigrants, even those who have entered the country illegally. Consequently, many hotels in the area are currently occupied by these groups, leaving fans and service members without accommodations for the game.
