Sean Hannity Think the US Should Send Homeless Veterans to Guantanamo Bay

For a variety of reasons, homelessness is a significant problem for those who have served in the United States military. In 2023 it was estimated that more than 35,000 veterans had experienced homelessness in the past year. 

It is not an easy problem to solve but things like access to mental health services and affordable housing are possible solutions. Sean Hannity has a different idea, however. The Fox News host believes that the best way to help homeless veterans would be to send them to Guantanamo Bay. 

The Fox host made the suggestion during his Wednesday radio show. He remarked, "Well, they did build soccer fields for the terrorists at Gitmo and spent a fortune of your money building great facilities for the people at Gitmo. Why not use it for something worthwhile? How about, like, our homeless military?"

Hannity continued:

"If we're going to use Gitmo for some good purpose, why don't we take and find all of America's homeless military, let's bring them to Gitmo. Let them play on the soccer field and house them and feed them and treat them and give them the medical attention that they need, mental health assistance that they may need, and help them develop skills so they can, you know, get back into society and have healthy and happy and productive lives. Just an idea if we're going to be using those facilities and spending that kind of money."
