Boston City Council member Julia Mejia is calling on suburban residents to offer their homes as shelters for migrants, emphasizing that suburbs have more resources than the city.

This proposal aligns with Massachusetts Democrat Gov. Maura Healey’s administration, which has also suggested residents house migrants.

“Dedham, Wellesley, Brookline — cities and towns that have so much more resources than the city of Boston. People who actually have more financial support,” Boston City Council member Julia Mejia said. “We need to do everything in our power to make sure that we are setting them up for success or whatever success looks like.”

“I think everybody should be opening up their doors because this is a shared responsibility,” she said.

However, these calls have faced criticism, with some questioning the officials’ personal involvement and others expressing concerns about the impact of illegal immigration policies on citizens.

“So has Julia Mejia opened her doors? Is she even a legal citizen herself? It’s amazing how leftists are so generous with other people’s homes. But when it comes to theirs, they suddenly are nowhere to be found,” one X user wrote.

“Hey! @juliaforboston, how many are you welcoming into your home? Do let us know,” another wrote.

“Why should anyone who didn’t have a say in illegal immigration policies have to share the responsibility for disastrous outcomes?” another said.

“Unbelievable, Democrats want Americans to open up their homes to potentially dangerous illegal immigrants. If the border crisis doesn’t cost Democrats their jobs in 2024, I don’t know what will,” another said.
