Clear Facts:

  • The Massachusetts National Guard has been deployed to assist with the ongoing migrant crisis, with over 6,000 migrant families currently housed in emergency shelters.
  • Governor Maura Healy has announced a state of emergency, emphasizing the need to provide safe shelter and basic services to these families.
  • Amidst the increasing strain on resources, Boston received a $1.9 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to aid in shelter and transportation needs.

The migrant crisis continues to intensify in Massachusetts, prompting official action to address the growing concerns. In response to the surging numbers of displaced and migrant families seeking refuge, the Massachusetts National Guard has been mobilized.

Their deployment, sanctioned by Governor Maura Healy, aims to bolster the state’s efforts in providing necessary assistance and services.

Governor Healy clarified the need for heightened measures, stating, “Massachusetts is in a state of emergency, and we need all hands-on deck to meet this moment and ensure families have access to safe shelter and basic services.”

Highlighting the state’s commitment to its ‘right to shelter’ policy, Massachusetts now finds itself housing over 6,000 migrant families in emergency shelters.

The current deployment involves 250 service members assisting more than 40 shelters across the state. These personnel will aid with logistical and administrative tasks.

Lieutenant Colonel Patrick Donnelly, the mission commander, emphasized the guard’s commitment, stating, “The Guard is committed to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the residents of Massachusetts, and our emergency and domestic operation experience will add a wide array of options to assist those in need.”

With the shelters already brimming, Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll underscored the gravity of the situation, saying, “All of our typical emergency shelter sites were filled a month ago. That means we’re filling in trying to find locations.”

Driscoll further criticized the existing systems in place, suggesting they were insufficient for the present crisis.

This dire situation isn’t unique to Massachusetts alone. The United States, at large, grapples with a growing immigration issue, and states like Massachusetts call on federal intervention for added support.

Addressing the urgency, Governor Healy appealed to President Joe Biden for federal assistance, and subsequently, Boston received a $1.9 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    The federal government should not money to a state that choses to admit illegal aliens sanctuary. The state should fund itself for this action, not the rest of the US.

    Idiot Biden and his communist cronies in the white house can fund crap like this but helping the poor and veteran -CITIZENS- is not on his list. It would be a gift from God if this all backfires on the dems because all they want is votes.

      BINGO!! That was Biden’s sole intention when he opened up the border. To enlarge the Democrat’s voter base. This POS has created a monster for all states and he doesn’t give a crap! He’s going to leave office with all the money he & his family have gotten from Ukraine, China, Mexico and a lot of other countries, while selling out the US! He’s the most corrupt President we’ve ever had! In addition to giving away our tax dollars to other countries! Oh yeah, he did give $700.00 per family to the victims of Maui. What a guy! And this good Catholic is pro-abortion too. Go figure.

    First, this is not immigration. Immigrants come in legally. This is an invasion sanctioned by a President that is clueless about what is happening in a country that he is supposed to be protecting. Sanctuary States are so concerned with protecting and providing for illegals, that they are ignoring the dramatic jump in crime that has come with this invasion. How about taking care of our own homeless population, rising prices, basic medical for Americans. Our tax money should go to the US citizens and not illegals. A country without borders is nothing more than a squatters Paradise. We have lost control of our own country,

    What about our illustrious Vice president? Wasn’t she supposed to cure the immigration problem. Oh Yea she showed up 500 miles from the boarder, waved her magic wand and the problem in her mind was over. Another 5 star loser in the administration!

    This problem will persist until Biden and his ilk are out. His plan is to destroy America. All his actions support that theory. He is a demented, incompetent fool and needs deposed ASAP.
