Harvard Wants Refugees But Working Class Neighborhoods Get Them
At Independent Sentinel|by S.Noble
Harvard University and all who live in the surrounding area want refugees! The only problem is they can’t possibly get them. They won’t get any, none, nada, zip.
Cambridge doesn’t have low-income housing. The U.S. State Department and its contractors send refugees to working class and poor communities elsewhere in Massachusetts. Those are the locales where the people struggle financially.
If the communities build low-income housing for refugees, it then attracts more. It’s a cycle that ends up redefining the neighborhood and impacting the schools.
A Boston Globe article describing the situation says the Harvard rallies for welcoming refugees are notably absent one thing — any refugees.
