President Joe Biden said "there are more important things going on" than the crisis at the U.S. southern border, but officials here in deep blue Massachusetts are growing more concerned about the flow of migrants making their way north.Outgoing Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker recently declared a "humanitarian crisis" and asked the legislature to approve $139 million to cover housing and education costs associated with the influx of migrants that are making their way to Massachusetts.The legislative leadership quickly dispatched Baker's request for emergency funds to committee limbo, where it will gather dust until after the holidays.
