Liberal States Facing Migrant Influx Crisis, Lack Federal Support

Most liberal states are challenged by the influx of migration from the southern border, and those states have declared states of emergency. After NYC Mayor Eric Adam’s state of emergency assertion of “ha[ving] run out of room” for migrants, Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey declared a state of emergency on Tuesday for the same reason. Gov. Healey asked for more funding and assistance from the Federal Government.

Gov. Healey explained that some of those migrants are pregnant women who need care, and shelters are very limited. According to FOX News, Healey said there are numerous contributing factors, including “federal policies on immigration and work authorization” as well as a lack of affordable housing and the end of COVID-era programs.

“Many of these families are migrants to Massachusetts, drawn here because we are and proudly have been a beacon to those in need,” she wrote in a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

She also blamed “a confusing tangle of immigration laws, an inability for migrants to obtain work authorization from the federal government, an increase in the number of people coming to Massachusetts, and the lack of an affordable housing supply in our state.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent the migrants onboard buses to Marta’s Vinyard last year, and he sent out more buses to cities like Washington D.C., and New York City. He even installed chainsaw-styled buoys on the Rio Grande as a barrier for blocking the Mexico-U.S. border.

With much effort, migrants left their own countries for the U.S., Europe, and continents to survive for many reasons, including political conflicts, economic collapse, climate change, and other facts. According to an article from James Hollifield, UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), there are at least 108 million forcibly displaced people, including 35.3 million refugees and more than 62 million people that are internally displaced.
