    Lewiston, ME Officials Cautiously Watch the Congolese Shipments Arriving in Portland

    Lewiston, ME Officials Cautiously Watch the Congolese Shipments Arriving in Portland

    June 14, 2019 ~ Ann Corcoran

    And, local citizens like Laura Mae ask important questions, like this one:


    “We already have homeless vets and homeless people here as it is. Why do we have to help others before our people here?”


    Yesterday I told youabout how 350 illegal aliens from the DR Congo were being sent first to San Antonio, TX and some of those were then sent on to welcoming Portland, Maine.


    (At a time when the US State Department has already taken in 50,000 ‘new Americans’ from the DR Congo in under five years as ‘refugees.’)

    And, as I said yesterday, Maine is prime real estate for illegal alien asylum seekers because it offers public benefits to those wannabe refugees BEFORE they have gone through the whole asylum process.

    The primary information I want to know, and it seems no one ever asks or reports, is this: who paid for these large families, with children in tow, to get all the way from the heart of Africa to our southern border? Aren’t these people supposed to be poor?

    So, if Lewiston ends up getting the spillover from Portland, I wonder how the Somalis (Muslims) who dominate Lewiston will feel about some of their African competitors moving in on their territory—competing for housing, medical care, and other social services. Most of the Congolese are not Muslims.

    I guess the one bright side is that Lewiston will be a kind of multicultural petri dish for us all to watch and learn from because this is where America is headed (developing ethnic communities that conflict with each other) thanks to the fact that most Americans are not paying attention and keep electing officials who support bringing the third world to our shores. (Like the present Governor of Maine!)

    The Sun Journal gives us the reaction from Lewiston leaders and citizens.
    From the Lewiston Sun Journal (hat tip: Joanne),

    Lewiston watches closely as migrants flow into Portland

    On Tuesday, Portland City Manager Jon Jennings set up an emergency shelter to accommodate more than 200 asylum seekers heading to the city from the South. As Jennings prepared to get the emergency shelter staffed, he said he would reach out to surrounding communities for assistance in handling the unexpected influx.

    If Jennings has Lewiston in mind, there could be problems.

    “We have not had any direct contact with the folks in Portland and, so far, have not seen any impact from the recent arrivals there,” Lewiston City Administrator Ed Barrett said Thursday. “We are monitoring the situation; however, at the moment, our housing market is fairly tight with few vacancies and, as you know, the city does not operate a public shelter.

    “In addition, we do not have a community fund available like Portland does, so we do not provide support for asylum seekers until they have formally applied for asylum and become eligible for General Assistance.”
    Some in Lewiston worry that a repeat of what happened in 2001 is in the offing.
    ……when waves of immigrants coming to Lewiston caused a scramble for housing, protests and political bickering.

    In 2002, Laurier Raymond, mayor of Lewiston at the time, wrote an open letter to leaders of the Somali community asking them to slow their migration to the city. At the time, more than 1,000 Somalis had moved to Lewiston in less than 18 months, and more were on the way.
    Some residents appreciated Raymond’s handling of the refugee matter, while others condemned him as racist.
    There it is, how weak-kneed Americans cave to the pressure from the NO Borders movement—-call them a racist and they run and hide (and elect officials like the present mayor who do not put America first)!

    Then this from a fearless and knowledgeable citizen:
    “They’re making a mockery of the asylum process,” wrote Kevin Pouliot of Biddeford. “It’s not meant to be for economic reasons. Are we supposed to take in every poor person on the planet? If we did then America would be no different than the countries they’re fleeing from.”
    Continue reading here.

    For inquisitive readers, I have written about Lewiston as the Somali capital of New England for years, first at Refugee Resettlement Watch and here at Frauds and Crooks.
