Dem gov of MN gives housing to 150 illegals. 18,000 Mainers waiting for section 8

The gov is another white-hating racist democrat. If you invade our country illegally but are non-white, then you get treated better than citizens.

aug 12 2019 PORTLAND (WGME) - Nearly 200 asylum seekers have to be out of an emergency shelter at the Portland Expo by this Thursday as the Red Claws move back in.

While state and city leaders scramble to find them housing, some homeless Mainers say they feel left behind.

The I-Team found more than 18,000 Mainers are on a waiting list for Section 8 and that's just one program to help low-income families get affordable housing.

Many of those people are homeless and hungry and have already been waiting years for their number to be called.

Zanetta Smith said she's thankful for a storage shack in the woods where a friend is letting her live.

According to Maine Housing, the statewide Maine Centralized Section 8 waiting list is now up to 18,316.

"Of course when the asylum seekers come up here they offered them free housing. How do they have a place for them but not for us?" Smith wants to know.

At last check, more than 150 asylum seekers who arrived in Portland since June have moved out of a makeshift shelter at the Portland Expo and into units in Bath, Brunswick, Lewiston, Portland, and Scarborough.

Governor Janet Mills transferred $172,303 to the Maine State Housing Authority from the Governor's Contingency Account to help pay rent for asylum seekers for a year, but her office said the governor is also committed to combating the serious problem of homelessness in Maine.

Democrats care more about foreign invaders than US citizens. Example #34,729.

150 American kids sleeping under a bridge so this Democratic cretin can slap the backs of her fellow travelers at the next cocktail party and tell them how much he cares....

Disgusting.
 
This is not going over well within the State. With all those homeless Maine residents who have been on a waiting list for housing for a very long time this is a slap in the face.
The asylum seekers are not illegal.

Sounds like Main needs to tax and invest in affordable housing, fix the problem, instead of scapegoating already unfortunate people seeking asylum.

So you believe that the "unfortunate people" seeking asylum needs should come BEFORE those of Maine residents who have been a waiting list for affordable housing? Because that is exactly what is happening.

They are main residents and main should take care of all of their residents.

Fix the problem.

Invest in affordable housing.

Don't pit one group of unfortunate people against another.

The problem is the lack of affordable housing not a few hundred asylum seekers.

Quit the scapegoating.

FYI It is Maine, not main. Maine has a homeless problem just like most of America. Why do you believe that giving housing to asylum seekers who have only been in the State for a few months over Maine residents who have been placed on a waiting list is ok? Because the reality is...that is what you are saying. You are wanting preferential treatment for the asylum seekers over Maine residents. And don't even bother with your..."invest in affordable housing". This issue is here and now.
