Which border State you ask?

Massachusetts.

Massachusetts National Guard members were officially deployed as "rapid response teams" Wednesday to assist with the state's bursting migrant shelters, as pressure mounts for President Biden to address the crisis in the state.

The move to deploy 250 members comes as Democrat Gov. Maura Healey declared a state of emergency several weeks ago because of the strain on the shelter system.

"Massachusetts is in a state of emergency, and we need all hands-on deck to meet this moment and ensure families have access to safe shelter and basic services," Healy said in a statement.

Currently, more than 6,000 migrant families are in emergency shelters across the state. Massachusetts is a right-to-shelter state, and must provide emergency housing to families in need.

National Guard members were sent Wednesday to 40 hotels and motels that don't have service providers. Healey said they will coordinate access to meals, medical care and transportation.

HoaryGill: wouldn't it be wonderful if we could do away with armies and resolve all of the world's disputes at the poker table? imagine: there would then be enough money to feed, clothe, house, and educate the entire world!

Dealer: griggler1337, it's your turn. You have 10 seconds to act

HoaryGill: it's a silly dream, I know

Dealer: Hand #112850168716: Mr.Doomguy wins pot (280)
Dealer: sweetcoqueta, it's your turn. You have 10 seconds to act
Dealer: Player sweetcoqueta has requested TIME

HoaryGill: humanity is too ugly to even embrace its own inner beauty.

Like John Lennon said, war is over, if you want it.

Poker to resolve international disputes, you say?

How can anyone trust it? Games can be rigged!

Well apparently so can democracy, and it's always the elite who win anyway.

The only difference you'll notice is no one dies due to a war between nations.

People will still die, naturally, and because they're, by and large, idiots and will still find ways to get their asses killed.

:?)

What a joke. The fucking leftard Mayors and Governors went out of their way to signal their virtue when Trump was president by publicly announcing their cities and states were sanctuary jurisdictions and now they're whining about the consequences of THEIR actions.

""Massachusetts is in a state of emergency, and we need all hands-on deck to meet this moment and ensure families have access to safe shelter and basic services," Healy said in a statement."
Yet Americans who are in need of but don't have safe shelter and basic services can go fuck themselves apparently.
