Massachusetts National Guard Activated Due to Migrant Crisis

Massachusetts National Guard Activated Due to Migrant Crisis

Not so easy having eight sanctuary cities, eh?

Massachusetts has eight sanctuary cities: Amherst, Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Concord, Newton, Northampton, and Somerville.

That’s why Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent a bunch of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. Also, he wanted to expose the liberal hypocrisy.

Easier said than done!

Migrants have overwhelmed the small state. Gov. Maura Healey activated the National Guard:

The move comes after the governor declared a state of emergency several weeks ago because of the strain on the shelter system.

“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,” Healy said in a statement.

There are currently about 6,000 families, including pregnant women and children, in emergency shelters in Massachusetts.

The National Guard will receive a hotel assignment to help coordinate services for the migrants.

Other members will attend local schools to help with enrollment.

The cities don’t know where to house the migrants. Residents are ticked because they want the cities and states to care for the taxpayers first:

Dozens of protesters came out Saturday to the Yarmouth Resort motel, where the state hopes to set aside 100 units for migrant families, many of whom include Haitian immigrants displaced by natural disasters.

The protesters claimed that the state has prioritized the need of the migrants over the need of its own homeless residents, including veterans, with many at the rally flashing signs that read, “Vets and Cape Homeless First!!”

The hotel in Yarmouth is just one of more than 1,500 temporary hotels and new shelters set up across the state since 2022.

The state’s Executive Office of Housing and Livable Communities said in a statement, “The administration is exploring all options to expand family shelter capacity to meet rising demand.”

What? They are only here to do the jobs Americans won’t. ( would if you stopped the gravy train), Your is the diversity they bring ( unless it’s in your backyard), It’s the compassionate thing to do (unless you’re a born citizen footing the bill).

It is interesting to watch what the Mass. NG is going to be tasked to do.

Are they going to see that the invaders stay in the assigned shelters?
Are they there to protect them from Mass. residents who object to the invasion?
Are they there to keep the invaders from committing crimes against Americans? [a common event] Or conversely, are they there to see that the invaders are NOT arrested and prosecuted for crimes committed in this country?
Or are they there to repel further shipments of invaders from the border states?

This is forever. The people being kept in hotels and other such places will never leave (or be able to leave) without being given free food and shelter somewhere else.

The racist bigoted Biden people who brought millions into the country don’t care that the migrants have no future other than this. And that our average citizens will be devastated by the cost, crime and other problems..

The goal was to cause havoc and harm the United States, and if millions of lives are ruined in the process, they don’t care.

    To build a movement that will advance Marxist-Leninism, first build a base of mass people from the ‘lower orders’ who have no status, little to offer but need, and most of all, keep this base poor dependent and loyal. Ad them to Americans who are barely a notch above them and you have a movement that will believe do or repeat anything to sustain themselves as loyal.

    The normal, capable self sufficient American people are not to be part of this base because said Americans would be a threat to those in power who maintain this base of ‘lower orders’.

    I remember when Katrina refugees would not leave their little wooden temporary trailers that FEMA provided. How much longer would people stay in 3 star hotels?

So, the Guard will be wiping the illegals’ noses and arses, eh? Let’s just hope they’re not being called out to act against those protesting the government’s actions. Of course, they’re prioritizing the illegals over their own citizens and leaving the citizens to pay the tab, did anyone expect otherwise? Is that just a stock photo, or have they gone all stupid with the masks again?

“There are currently about 6,000 families, including pregnant women and children, in emergency shelters in Massachusetts.”

El Paso absorbs that number EVERY FOUR DAYS, you sanctimonious hypocrites. You’re nowhere NEAR your share yet.

But you will be.

    “6000 families” and “20,000 [illegal] immigrants all told.”

    6000 families is a nice round number. The Massachusetts census-takers! No one dare doubt their ability and efficiency.

    Pregnant women all in need of prenatal care. Hundreds and hundreds of them. A desperate situation. Planned Parenthood not mobilized.

    “make a plea for expedited work authorizations to allow the newcomers to work”

    Illegals need driver’s licenses, voter registration cards and food stamps.

      Just like the “COVID crisis” and the “energy crisis” before it, we didn’t have an “immigrant crisis” until the swampies deliberately CREATED one.

    “including pregnant women”

    Instant anchor babies.

      Birthright citizenship must end, require at least one parent to be a citizen. What would be legal in terms canceling birthright citizenship retroactive 20-30 years, shis shit has been going on far too long.

        not_a_lawyer in reply to JohnSmith100. | September 4, 2023 at 8:57 pm

        While I do agree that birthright citizenship is an abomination, even if we got the courts to forbid it, there would be no retroactive enforcement.

        NOPE. Dig out your dusty copy of the US Constitution, find the 14th Article of Ammendment and CAREFULLY read it.
        The qualifiers to become a citizen are to be born here of citizen parent lawfully present, AND SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION of the US and their own state government. Border crashers are subject to no one and nothing but the raw laws of nature, eat or starve, kill or be killed.
        Of course, the joke of a Congress we have might take a few moments away from their charade and address this issue, enacting clear regulations for citizenship that are far beyond the mere accident of your mother’s pregnancy coming full term while she happens to be on holliday here, or has managed to invade our sovereign territory. NONE of that qualifies her offspring for US Citizenship. That DOES work, or used to, however in France which is why they are now being overrun by hordes of adherants to the “religion of peace”.

What? There’s no chance that the migrant population is as violent as Americans.

‘…..migrants have overwhelmed the small State’? Massachusetts has 9 CD that’s not exactly small. It’s the same number as Arizona has and 3x what New Mexico has, both of which are border States with far higher numbers of illegal aliens than Massachusetts.

Maybe the article meant geographical size was the problem? No worries, these smaller NE States can combine to reach something approaching the average geographic size as those West of the Mississippi if geographical size is now an issue for them. Or maybe they can be grown ups and focus on dealing with the consequences of their stupid virtue signaling that have finally arrived thanks to the actions of a few GoP Governors.

Do they still have Romney care….????

Free stuff!!!!!

Stop using the enemy’s jargon.

    Which is the reason I use the formulation invaders, usually but not this time in the formulation “hostile foreign invaders”.

We need more readers here.

If these illegal aliens are to somehow be granted legal status, they will be able to bring in their entire extended family, including their 85-yr old grandmother who is in dire need of a heart-lung transplant. Any surgeons here? What does that cost? Several $million? And deserving Americans are put behind them?

I seem to recall reading that all immigrants need to have sponsors who will take care of all their needs for 5 years. Has that law been repealed by congress? Does it no longer apply?

Look at our host’s employer regarding the matter:!-,8%20U.S.%20Code%20%C2%A7%201601%20%2D%20Statements%20of,policy%20concerning%20welfare%20and%20immigration&text=Self%2Dsufficiency%20has%20been%20a,this%20country%27s%20earliest%20immigration%20statutes.&text=the%20availability%20of%20public%20benefits,immigration%20to%20the%20United%20States.

8 U.S. Code § 1601 – Statements of national policy concerning welfare and immigration. Self-sufficiency has been a basic principle of United States immigration law since this country’s earliest immigration statutes (so that) the availability of public benefits not constitute an incentive for immigration to the United States.

The preceding is US Law as written and passed by the legislature, not my interpretation of it.

I could go on and on. Legal immigrants need sponsors. Illegal Aliens need to be deported immediately, and if they complain, they can appeal from their country of origin by hiring American immigration attorneys to represent them in absentia.

As it stands now, the US taxpayer must feed, clothe, house, and medicate the entire world should they make the increasingly easy journey to come here.

The US Immigration Law explicitly states that immigrants cannot obtain public benefits. Have you ever stayed in a $500/night hotel? I could afford it once or twice, but I’d rather sleep in the gutter.

The law does not matter anymore, which should concern participants in a law blog.

The definition of a dictator is one who can both define and enforce the law. With all of Biden’s executive orders, he is clearly acting as a dictator.

    You have to understand that we are at the end of the constitutional republic and the Social Contract it grew from. Statutes are no longer applied to those in power or those favored by those in power. Conversely, statutes are applied to those politically or socially disfavored even when doing so is against the actual wording of the statutes or legal precedent. Power defines what is legal.

    In reference to legal immigration law, my family went through the whole mess. My father married in China just as WW-II was breaking out there. He came back to the US to get ready to admittedly smuggle her in here. Keeping in mind that under US law at the time, we Chinese were statutorily not human beings. He got word from the family that she had been killed by the Japanese, and assumed he was a widower. After the war he married again, they had me, and they got divorced, with my dad getting custody of me. When I was about 4 we got word from family that his wife had survived the Japanese attack and that she had made it out to Hong Kong. After confirmation, the fight was on with the then INS. It was complicated by her taking in an orphaned 12 year old cousin of mine. So he was added to the case. It took well over a decade of legal battles and tens of thousands of dollars [1950′ & 60’s dollars when a good house in a good neighborhood cost $15K]; but we did it the legal way. Nowadays, I never hear of anyone going through the legal way and it is functionally moot.

    Some years back a friend of mine, a youngish single Mom, went to Brasil with her little daughter for an extended (six months plus?) mission service project. There she met and married a Brasilian man, Not wealthy but taking care of himself well. Gainfully employed with a future. They decided, at the end of her commitment there, to move to the States as she had lots of family and close friends here. He entered on a temp tourist visa, then they began to explore the reqirements and hoops and chains for him to stay as “married to American Citizen. They demanded sponsorship for him. Several family and friend folks came forward, all were gainfully employed, owned homes and/or businesses, comfortable financially. NOT ONE could qualify and they refused to allow multiples to stand for him. After two years of fighting , they gave up and she moved to Brasil to be with her Husband.
    We all thought that to be very unfair.
    These days all they would have had to do would be to somehow get him across the magic line in some sandbox in Arizona.

We have already lost when even this site uses the term “migrant” in place of “illegal immigrant”. Do not adopt the terminology of a movement whose aim is to destroy us.

Those eight sanctuary cities are only those that formally voted to so designate themselves. In fact, almost every city in Massachusetts acts as a sanctuary city. For cowardly political reasons the snakes running these cities don’t choose to officially declare themselves.

Concord is not a city but a town of about 18,000. The median home price is $1.7 million, according to Redfin. A Concord Best Western has been converted to a shelter, with few complaints so far. However, this is a town that banned plastic bottles, gas powered leaf blowers and other virtue-signaling measures (although the cat leash law to protect birds was defeated). It’s not as elite as Martha’s Vineyard, but it will be interesting to see when/if a breaking point occurs.

Massachusetts National Guard Activated Due to Migrant Crisis

They enlisted to be part time soldiers and to protect their communities/states. None of them enlisted to babysit illegal aliens.

Want to dry up those enlistment numbers some more? Keep abusing the good will and motivation of Guardsmen to serve and they will drop right off.
