As City Shelters Reach Capacity, Boston Councilwoman Has an Idea for Where Illegal Immigrants Should Go

Like other major Democratic ‘sanctuary’ cities across the U.S., Boston is reaching its capacity to shelter illegal border crossers, leading state officials to eye other surrounding locations to handle the overflow.

One temporary shelter that had been set up to handle the families that were staying at Logan International Airport was expected to reach its 400-person capacity in a matter of days, local news outlets reported last week. 

“[A]t some point we have to say that we just don’t have enough space,” Councilman Ed Flynn told NBC Boston. “And homes and apartments for everyone wishing to come to Boston. Boston is a very compassionate city but at some point, we are just not able to sustain everyone that wants to come here. It’s so expensive and unaffordable.”

In comments that are going viral, Boston city councilwoman Julia Mejia argued cities outside Beantown need to start taking illegal immigrants in. 

“Cities and towns that have so much more resources than the city of Boston” should take them, she said, pointing to the affluent areas of Wellesley and Brookline as examples of possible locations.  

“I think everybody needs to start opening up their doors because this is a shared responsibility,” she added.
