Massachusetts Begins Rejecting Illegals, Democrat Gov Declares ‘Sanctuary’ State Is Full

The state of Massachusetts has revealed that it will no longer accept illegal aliens flooding into its cities.

Democrat Gov. Maura Healey announced Friday that officials have now banned illegal aliens from sleeping on the floors of Boston’s Logan International Airport.

Massachusetts officials are now also telling illegals currently at the Southern Border not to travel to the “sanctuary” state because its shelter system is out of space.

More than 100 migrants have been using the airport facility as a shelter.

Illegals have been lining the floors of Boston’s main air hub with makeshift beds and air mattresses.

However, they will now be prohibited from doing so from July 9.

Instead, the illegal border crossers will be offered free taxpayer-funded dorm-like accommodation at a former minimum-security prison facility in Norfolk, Gov. Healey revealed.

The state has refurbished Massachusetts’ Bay State Correctional Center, a former minimum-security facility.

The new migrant camp opened last week and can accommodate 140 illegal aliens and homeless families, or about 450 people.

The facility is located on the grounds of Massachusetts Correctional Institution (MCI), a medium-security prison.

The migrants will also be offered transfers to other new “safety-net” sites, Healey’s office said.

In a statement, the state’s emergency assistance director, Scott Rice, said:

“The administration has worked diligently in recent months to increase the number of families leaving shelter into more stable housing.

“With this progress… we are now in a position to end the practice of families staying overnight in the airport.

“This is in the best interest of families and travelers and staff at Logan, as the airport is not an appropriate place for people to seek shelter.”

Norfolk has a population of about 11,500 and some residents fumed last month when they heard about the facility being turned into a migrant shelter.

The town voted heavily in favor of Democrat President Joe Biden in 2020.

The move comes after the administration says it sent a state delegation to the border to tell border officials, NGOs, and migrants that Massachusetts is out of shelter space.

The Healy administration says it is also putting out flyers in English, Spanish, and Haitian-Creole to let new migrants know that they will have to plan for housing in Massachusetts that does not include Logan Airport or the state’s shelter system.

Last summer, Healey declared a state of emergency over the surge of illegals into Massachusetts.

Since then, the Bay State has struggled to get a grip on the crisis.

The state has previously said that it is obliged to cater to the migrants because of its 1983 sanctuary city law which was passed to deal with the relatively small number of homeless families and pregnant women.

However, critics have said the law does not apply to migrants who are not U.S. citizens.

The administration said Friday it has been increasing its efforts to provide migrants with housing assistance, work authorization applications, job placements, and English classes.

As a result, more than 300 families have left the facilities since May, the administration said.

These numbers are expected to increase as the administration implements a nine-month length of stay limit for emergency shelters, which was passed by the Legislature and signed by Healey.

She also implemented 30-day engagement requirements, where migrants have to demonstrate they are taking action toward getting work permits, jobs, and housing.

Rice said last month that illegal aliens at the Norfolk site will have access to showers and bathrooms on each floor.

The facility also has a cafeteria, a gymnasium, a large common room, and offices that will be used for case management and administrative activities.

Rice added that play areas for children were being set up along with classroom spaces for adults to learn English and get job training.

The site is staffed 24/7 by a contracted service provider and families are provided with transportation on and off site.

The razor wire on the fence surrounding the facility was removed and the gates are to remain open, so families are free to exit and return as needed, the governor’s office says.

It is unclear how much the entire operation will cost the taxpayer.
