Homeless Veteran Booted From College Campus Because of How He Looked?

Headline Homeless vet, student booted from PHSC campus files grievance 

"José Antonio Hernandez, 41, told officials he is a homeless veteran living at a residential center in New Port Richey paid for by the Department of Veterans Affairs while attending classes at the college through VA benefits. Describing himself as “scruffy,” he said he is being discriminated against because of his appearance."

And this is the homeless veteran trying to make his life better by going to college.

“I will remind you at this point that I am a registered student attending classes and have only had to endure this treatment because of the ‘way I look,’ ” Hernandez says in the grievance.
