BREITBART – The state of Massachusetts is asking private homeowners to take in illegal aliens as the state runs out of room to house the thousands of border crossers who are still flooding into the Bay State.
Massachusetts is the only state that has a state-wide “right to housing” rule for homeless families.
And with that rule in mind, Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey (D) has repeatedly asked legal residents to open up their homes to illegal immigrants for whom officials are having a hard time finding beds.
Healey declared a “state of emergency” over the influx of illegal aliens in August, saying in her declaration, “There are currently nearly 5,600 families or more than 20,000 individuals in state shelter, including children and pregnant women.”
Days after Healey’s declaration, Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll (D) told the state, “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family.”
“Joe Biden et al. have turned what was a decent, if woke neighborhood, into a Bidenville.”
The state is currently housing more than 1,400 families in 40 hotels in 28 cities around the state at taxpayer expense — and free for the illegal aliens. According to FAIR, the average stay for these families is 14 months of free room and board.
Now it looks as though the state is reaching out to non-governmental groups to step up the pressure on homeowners to take in migrants.
A group called Immigrant Support Alliance is holding seminars to help inform residents about bringing illegal immigrants into their homes to act as a “host home.” The next event is set to be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, no less.
By law, the state is forced to pay for shelter and housing for homeless families. But the state’s housing system is already overwhelmed.
