    New documents show the rising public cost of sheltering migrants in Massachusetts, as the state grapples with a strain on its emergency shelter system. The state has 17 contracts totaling $116 million to house migrant families through June, including a no-bid $10 million contract for a company providing meals, CBS News Boston reported, citing documents obtained by the outlet. In some cases, the state is paying hotels $64 per person each day for meals, including $16 for breakfast, $17 for lunch and $31 for dinner. Last August, Massachusetts Governor Maura T. Healey declared a state of emergency, saying the state...

    Local families in the predominantly black Roxbury neighborhood of Boston are furious after the city shut down the local community center to instead use it to house more of President Joe Biden’s illegal border crossers. Roxbury’s Melnea A. Cass Recreational Community Center, which was once a meeting place for Little League ball players, volleyball games, and other sports and community events, has now been dedicated to rows of cots for illegal border crossers, CBS, WBZ-TV Boston reported. WBZ interviewed pre-teen Jeremiah Rodriguez who showed up at the community center on Feb. 17 under the mistaken impression that his community baseball...

    A Cambridge state representative says the migrant crisis has reached a “real boiling point” and is blaming the secretary of state for refusing to consider shifting an overflow shelter at an old courthouse into a 24/7 operation. Rep. Mike Connolly, a Democrat whose district encompasses the old courthouse in East Cambridge, told the Herald on Saturday that he, city officials, and the rest of the city’s state delegation, have been “begging” Secretary William Galvin for weeks to run the shelter around the clock, but Galvin hasn’t budged. The conflict has reached a point where the Cambridge City Council, Public Schools,...

    Boston's Catholic parishes are seeing a significant decline in membership, an alarming trend in one of the most Catholic cities in America. For centuries, Catholic churches have been the beating heart of Boston. Places to find quiet and form community. Now, according to a new poll from the PEW Research Center, only 30% of Boston adults identify as Catholic. That's down 20% since 2000 across the United States, according to the Catholic News Agency. "[In Boston}, maybe 40%, due to various things, particularly the sex abuse scandal, COVID hit, anger at statements from the Vatican," said professor Francis Xavier Clooney,...

    A group of teenage girls were caught on camera allegedly testing dark makeup to do blackface inside a Boston Sephora, with a staffer slamming their chaperone over the “incredibly offensive” act. The group of three girls were seen in a viral TikTok video trying the makeup testers at the Sephora store in the Prudential Center, with two of them covering their faces with cosmetics meant for darker skin tones. Temi Ojora, a University of Southern California track and field athlete who filmed the girls in the now-private video, described the scene as “genuinely so disgusted and disturbed.”

    Boston City Council member Julia Mejia told WBTS Boston on Thursday that suburban residents need to step up and begin offering their homes as migrant shelters. The at-large city councilor insisted that the suburbs have more resources available than the city, and she thinks it is time for suburbanites to chip in on the border crisis. “Dedham, Wellesley, Brookline — cities and towns that have so much more resources than the city of Boston. People who actually have more financial support,” Mejia told the station. “We need to do everything in our power to make sure that we are setting...

    Homeless families already in emergency shelters, including migrants from other countries, may be eligible for a state-run program that provides up to $30,000 over two years to find stable housing. The program, HomeBASE, has long served homeless families with children or pregnant women living in the emergency shelter system, which provides temporary housing under state’s decades-old right-to-shelter law. About half of the shelter system houses Massachusetts residents, according to state officials. Resettlement agencies are also working with Gov. Maura Healey’s administration to stand up a pilot program that would, according to one draft plan, help up to 400 migrants in...

    A deprived Boston community has been left 'on fire' after the governor of Massachusetts requisitioned a vital rec center to house the surge of migrants arriving in the city. Democrat Maura Healey was accused of treating the Roxbury neighborhood 'like garbage' after she locked residents out of the Melnea A. Cass Recreational Complex with less than 48 hours notice. She insisted it was needed to house the new arrivals, dozens of whom have been sleeping rough in the city's airport for months.

    WBUR ^ | 1/17/24 | Darryl C. Murphy/Frannie Monahan
    In December, Roxbury residents learned the Walgreens location on Warren Street would close its doors in January. It's the fourth Boston Walgreens to close in just over a year, all of which have been in predominately Black and Latino neighborhoods. For customers in those communities, the closures mean more than just losing a pharmacy — it may also mean decreased access to groceries, hygiene products and certain essential healthcare services. Today on The Common, Boston Globe Money, Power and Inequality Reporter Tiana Woodard explains how the closure of retail pharmacies further exacerbates healthcare disparities in the city and what options...

    A Harvard University-affiliated teaching hospital is seeking to retract or correct dozens of papers authored by four of its top researchers — including the hospital’s CEO — following a probe into allegations of data falsification. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston has already initiated six retractions to papers and 31 others are in the process of being corrected, the hospital’s research integrity officer, Dr. Barrett Rollins, confirmed to the Harvard Crimson. The corrections follow claims of data falsification leveled against the cancer institute’s CEO, Dr. Laurie Glimcher, chief operating officer Dr. William Hahn, director of the Clinical Investigator Research Program...

    The governor of Massachusetts is calling on the Biden administration to act, as nearly 100 migrants camp out in Boston’s international airport while the city’s shelters are at capacity. Dozens of migrant families, including several with young children, have been sleeping on the cold floor of Logan International Airport’s international terminal, reports the New York Post. The sad scenes look similar to those at the Chicago O’Hare Airport, which local reports have described as a “scene from Mad Max,” a dystopian movie set in a post-apocalyptic world.

    BOSTON — A major drugstore chain is shutting down another location in Boston in just a matter of days and people who live in the area are concerned that they are now living in a “pharmacy desert.” The Walgreens at 416 Warren Street in Roxbury will shut its doors for good come Martin Luther King Jr. Day, becoming the chain’s fourth city location to close in a little over a year. In late 2022, Walgreens suddenly shuttered locations in Mattapan, Hyde Park, and on Washington Street in Roxbury. Some Boston City Councilors have blasted the company for closing stores in...

    Boston Mayor Michelle Wu did not violate state discrimination laws by holding a 'no whites' holiday party because the event was not open to the public, Massachusetts Attorney General has ruled. Democrat Wu hosted the controversial event in December for 'electeds of color'. Her aides were only supposed to invite her six city council members 'of color' but they accidentally sent the event details to seven white members too.

    Exactly 250 years ago, on Dec. 16, 1773, a gang of rowdies, some dressed as Mohawk braves, boarded three merchant ships in Boston Harbor and, over three hours, dumped 342 chests of tea into the cold waves. A new law had, in fact, lowered the price of tea, but they still resented paying a token levy on it. Everyone knows the American Revolution began as a taxpayer revolt. What not everyone realizes is that that taxpayer revolt started on the other side of the Atlantic. Great Britain had had to whack up taxes to pay for the French and Indian...
