How Did AFRICAN Illegal Immigrants from Congo Take Over Portland Maine?


Portland officials have set up an emergency operations center and begun securing resources such as cots, linens, food, health-care providers and translators as the city prepares to house more than 250 asylum seekers from Africa who crossed the southern border into the United States.

City Manager Jon Jennings said that since Sunday the city has received nearly 100 asylum seekers, most of whom are fleeing violence and persecution in the sub-Saharan countries of Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. An additional 150 or so asylum seekers have boarded buses in recent days in San Antonio headed for Portland, he said.
