The Biden Regime’s illegal-alien conveyor belt has overwhelmed a shelter program in Portland, Maine, and Mainers are none too happy about the influx of mostly Angolan and Congolese “asylum seekers.”
In a piece that buries the worries of Mainers and highlights the plight of the illegals, the Epoch Times reported that shelters are packed to the rafters [Asylum Seekers Overwhelm Shelters in Portland, Maine, by Steven Kovac, June 5, 2022 (paywalled)].

Portland Family Shelters has resettled “309 families (1,091 people) in eight hotels located in five neighboring municipalities spread over three counties of southeastern Maine’s prime tourist and vacation region,” the Falun Gong newspaper reported:
Those moves, with their attendant complications and problems, have resulted in some pushback from the local Mainers who fear their prized relaxed lifestyle may never be the same.
And they resent not having a voice in any of it.
“It’s just part of the state government’s plan to bring the slums to the suburbs,” said a Mainer from the resort and tourist community of Kennebunkport, a small town about 28 miles down the Atlantic coast from Portland.
“The United States cannot rescue Africa.”
Another upset resident said the influx is “going to impact our quality of life,” an understatement given what Mainers in Lewiston learned long ago. The colonization will also mean white Mainers pay more taxes to support the black Africans.
The newspaper also revealed that a “never-before-seen” crime wave has hit Wells, which is about six miles from Kennebunkport, summer playground of the pro-migrant Bush Family.
Cops claim the “migrants” are innocent.
