Healey-Driscoll Administration Must Speak Up for Immigration and Border Reform

The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance and Jessica Vaughan, the Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, made the following statement today in response to the Biden-Harris and Healey-Driscoll administrations announcement of new clinics to help illegal migrants obtain work permits. 

The Center for Immigration Studies is a Washington, D.C. based research institute that examines the impact of immigration on American society and educates policymakers and opinion leaders on immigration issues.

“Massachusetts desperately needs our Governor and Lt. Governor to confront the Biden-Harris administration for failing to secure our southern border, and today they have an opportunity to hold them accountable. Photo ops with Washington bureaucrats will not fix the problem. Millions of immigrants crossing our southern border are incentivized to come here, in part because the Biden-Harris administration allows it to happen, but also because of our state’s generous taxpayer funded benefits and right to shelter law which currently has no residency requirement. Without securing our southern border, a work clinic for migrants will do nothing to fix the growing situation we face and simply act as another incentive to come to Massachusetts,” stated Paul Diego Craney, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. 

“Our nation is experiencing the worst mass illegal migration crisis in our history, with profound fiscal and security costs to Massachusetts. Instead of demanding relief from this record-breaking influx, which was caused by Biden-Harris policy changes, Gov. Healey and her team are working alongside this administration in a way that will attract even more illegal migration, and further facilitate the human trafficking and debt bondage that comes with it, not to mention displacement of legal workers who need these jobs. When was the last time the Governor held a job fair for locals who need a hand up?” concluded Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies.
