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.
