Editor: I’m back and overwhelmed by the number of stories I need to post in the coming days. I’m starting with this one for a couple of reasons. First, since RRW is not available at the moment, this is the sort of alert I might have placed there, and secondly it is in some ways an easy ho-hum kind of story because it is happening in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts and is expected to resonate there. (Or so we will find out!).
Therefore, it should be a quick and easy post for me to warm-up with (and doesn’t involve murder and violence as my next posts surely will).
However, it is important! All of you should be on the lookout, no matter where you live for Open Borders activists looking to the Portland, Maine model and saying, sure let’s send hundreds of those crossing the borders illegally to far-flung towns and cities to be ‘cared for’ in local settings by the good people of Anytown, USA.
This story is from the communities of Amherst and Northampton, Massachusetts home to a bevy of elite liberal colleges. We will see if the town fathers/mothers will entertain the idea of people opening their homes to migrants of all stripes while they anticipate the demise of the Trump presidency.
The news represents a possible new initiative (called “community sponsorship”) that doesn’t revolve around the usual refugee resettlement contractors and the normal process of refugee placement we are familiar with.
And, it invites all migrants, not just legitimate refugees, but illegal border-crossers and those who have overstayed a visa (like the Nigerian charged in the murder of a Utah college student), to take up residence in private homes.
