Outrage as Massachusetts Dem governor closes cherished sports center in majority-black Boston suburb for FOUR MONTHS so it can be used to house migrants --Governor gave less than 48 hours' notice that the popular Roxbury rec center would be turned over to 125 migrant families | 31 Jan 2024 | A deprived Boston community has been left "on fire" after the governor of Massachusetts requisitioned a vital rec center to house the surge of migrants arriving in the city. Democrat Maura Healey was accused of treating the Roxbury neighborhood "like garbage" after she locked residents out of the Melnea A. Cass Recreational Complex with less than 48 hours' notice. She insisted it was needed to house the new arrivals, dozens of whom have been sleeping rough in the city's airport for months. The neglected facility will receive a makeover worth $500,000 to make it fit for the 125 migrant families that are expected to move in, State Senator Liz Miranda told the Boston Globe.
