Wealthy residents from Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood gathered this week to voice their grievances regarding a forthcoming emergency migrant shelter set to open in their affluent community.

These individuals, who supported Boston’s sanctuary status, apparently didn’t expect it to affect their community.

Expressing their outrage to city officials, local residents bemoaned, “So, we have no say?” upon learning of the plans for the shelter in their vicinity.

Residents of a wealthy neighborhood in Boston expressed outrage at a recent community meeting after they learned that a new migrant shelter would soon open up nearby.

On Tuesday night, residents gathered to meet with General Scott Rice, the emergency assistance director for Democratic Gov. Maura Healey, to discuss their concerns about a temporary migrant shelter opening up in Fort Point, one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the Seaport area of Boston.

The United Way of Massachusetts Bay is working with Healey’s office to transform some Fort Point office space on Farnsworth Street, owned by the Unitarian Universalist Association, into a temporary shelter for approximately 80 immigrants.

But it seems nobody asked the locals whether they approved.
