CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) 50,000 immigrants have crossed the southern U.S. border looking for a place to stay. After a proposal was announced by Governor Patrick on Friday, a good amount of them might be seeking shelter in Chicopee.
Westover Air Reserve Base may become the newest shelter for hundreds of undocumented immigrant children escaping Central America. 22News spoke with local residents all morning, and after 7 on-camera interviews, all of them said they dont want the children staying in Chicopee.
Chicopee mayor Richard Kos is even against this idea. Representatives at Westover Aire Reserve Base are also hesitant about this proposal. Master Sargeant Biscoe told 22News that hes worried there wont be enough resources to shelter these immigrant children. But the possibility of even having these children in Chicopee is making some residents uneasy.
Im not too happy with them bringing any more freeloaders into this country, Richard Gebbie of Chicopee told 22News. Weve gotten enough by paying enough for the people in this city.
Its going to filter down into Chicopee, and then Chicopees going to end up being stuck paying for these people, supporting them, and then theyre going to tax my city, says Chicopee resident Richard Pellisier.
Other locals told 22News the government should be taking care of legal residents first, especially those who have served our country.
Dan Lagasse of Chicopee says, Theyre going to take kids from another country and put them up, but not our own veterans.
This proposal wont be put to action until the Department of Homeland Security notifies the base of an official plan. There has been no word of any plan yet.

These aren’t children! They are Obama regime political props! Get them the hell out of here!
Gray haired men enrolling in schools?
Looks like drug lords from across the border are infiltrating public schools---planning to set up lifelong lucrative businesses ......giving kids free samples to get them addicted is part of building up the business plan.
The graying men posing as teens could also be sex traffickers ---lining up nubile kid for their johns..... and the young 'uns for pedophiles who pay big bucks to get ahold of the little darlings.
Tolerant and compassionate libbers whining about the "humanitarian crisis" are OK with that (/snix).
Town fathers are also in for a financial shock when their carefully drawn budgets are looted by the "little children"....."children" with no other aspirations than to ride the lucrative US gravy train.
Hugo Chavez taught Boobamba a neat trick---if you don't have the votes to win---you import them from destitute countries. If you promise them billions in remittances they'll gladly empty out their villages.
INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY---Central America Border Rush Fueled By Remittances
(extortion racket---US taxpayers to prop up corrupt govts)
......52,000 unaccompanied illegals crossed the south Texas border this year.....as the political debate focused on immigration enforcement, a key economic factor has been lost in the clamor. Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, which are supplying three-quarters of the latest cross-border flood, and are dependent on their diaspora in the US to prop up their own woeful economies.
Immigrants send back billions of dollars to their families. Remittances have risen to 16.5% of El Salvador's GDP, 15.7% of Honduras' and 10% of Guatemala's, according to World Bank data. Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Bolivia rely on remittances for 4.1% to 9.7% of GDP.
But the figure drops precipitously for every other country in Latin America. Mexico, with the largest immigrant population in the U.S. with as many as 13 million people, now relies on remittances for just 2% of GDP.
Migrant remittances to Mexico were $22 billion in 2013, 29% below their 2006 peak. For Colombia, once a locus of drug-war violence, that has turned itself around, remittances are only 1.1% of GDP. Free-market star Chile's figure is 0%.
It's not surprising to see Central American leaders urging the U.S. to let the newest arrivals stay. Those migrants' remittances offer a lifeline to desperately poor countries. While the money goes to families, it helps the broader economy......and ultimately fills government coffers.
A 2008 Pew Research Center survey found that 54% of foreign-born Hispanics send remittances to their home countries, compared to 17% of U.S.-born Hispanics. Undocumented immigrants are believed to send more cash home than either.
Virtually all the cash received by the three remittance outliers is from the U.S. (Guatemala 89%, El Salvador 90%, Honduras 87%).
At a Thursday Senate hearing WRT the swarm at the border, Ambassador Thomas A. Shannon, Dept of State counsellor, told senators "Mexico's Southern border strategy with Guatemala was a welcome step towards improving Mexicos ability to exercise greater control along its border with Guatemala and Belize."
(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)
Obama'S setting us up big time...he's colluding and conspiring w/ the Third World. Think extortion, kickbacks and money-laundering
AND GET THIS SCAM Honduras Juan Orlando Hernandez and Guatemala President Otto Pérez Molina and their first ladies "say" they want their children back....... and theyre "willing to cooperate" with us to send their children back as quickly as possible........ that is to say.....will cooperate "for a price".........
Honduras demands US aid, suggests 'mini-Marshall plan for Honduras'... Extortion comes to mind....and kickbacks. They emptied out their villages with greedy visions of billions in remittances expected.
Now they want to cooperate? Call this a Third World scam by opportunists who smell money.....a scam Chicago criminals know very well.
It may be they are beginning to understand they made a mistake when even liberal Mass doesn’t buy in.
Have the county health department slap a quarantine on the old air force base.
CHICOPEE...sounds Indian. Is that where Elizabeth Warren is from?
Chicopee, Mass is not the only city pissed off at the illegal invasion. Over 300 cities plan protests this weekend;
This thing is beginning to boil over.
50,000 “immigrants” my ass.
Hundreds of thousands of teenage and twenty-something illegal aliens invading America is more like it.
The fake Indian is from Oklahoma.
When Elizabeth Warren moved from Oklahoma to Massachusetts, the people of Oklahoma must have been dancing in the street with joy to be rid of this moonbat’s moonbat.
I think she has a multi-million dollar home in Cambridge.
Deval “Coupe Deval” Patrick is the Governor of Massachusetts and one of the filthiest individuals to have ever drawn breath (he’s a lifelong pal of Obama himself).He’s not running for reelection as governor but *has* made it known that he wants to be President.Those who know Massachusetts,and him,well aren’t even slightly surprised by his defiance of the will of the people.
The names of many of the state's places,some of its towns and many of its lakes (for some reason),are Indian names.
Texas has man-made lakes with Indian names....
Lake Tawakoni being one of them, it was built in 1960
Massachusetts is Indian. Lots of Indian names in MA.
