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.
