Gov. Maura Healey bans migrants from sleeping at Boston’s Logan Airport as overflow website opens

Date:

Gov. Maura Healey banned migrant households from sleeping at Logan Airport beginning July 9, a transfer that can drive the oftentimes massive crowd that has used the airport as a shelter to seek out new locations to sleep, she introduced in a press release Friday.

Healey mentioned the choice to bar folks from sleeping on the ground of the airport comes as an overflow shelter at a former jail in Norfolk opened this week and administration officers traveled to the southern border to warn folks of a shelter scarcity right here.

Scott Rice, a Nationwide Guard veteran overseeing the state’s emergency shelter system, mentioned prohibiting households from sleeping on the airport is within the “best interest” of the households, vacationers, and workers.
