Massachusetts woman boasts she has her 'own personal chef' after hosting Haitian illegal immigrants in her home

"It's a delight, and it's really fun having them," she added.


A Massachusetts woman has started hosting a family of Hiatian illegal immigrants in her apartment and told reporters it is like having their own "personal chef" in the house.  

The illegal immigrants started living with the Brookline, Massachusetts family a few weeks ago. Lisa Hillenbrand told Boston 10, "It's a delight, and it's really fun having them. What I realized is there's so much prejudice against refugees mostly because people don't know them." 

Hillenbrand added that is like having a "personal chef" in the home because the mother in the illegal immigrant family likes cooking.  

Some local non-profits appear to be facilitating the hosting set ups. 

Another family in in the city of Brookline received a call from Bay State Community Services (BSCS) in Quincy to house a illegal immigrant family. The BSCS website says that it furthers "its mission by partnering in a strength-based culture of recovery that affirms the principles of self-determination and individual dignity.” It does not appear to advertise services for migrants.

The Immigrant Support Alliance also held a public meeting in January on how to host the illegal immigrants.   

A resources document for migrants who arrive in the state cites several different "Resettlement Agencies," however, research into several of these organizations' websites revealed little information on how the hosting process takes place and if there are background checks for illegal immigrants who are go to resident homes. 

During August 2023 Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Governor Kim Driscoll urged residents to consider hosting illegal immigrants. "This is not a crisis that our family shelter system was designed to handle. For months now, the state government and our providers have been doing the work of stretching the system as far as it can safely go. But we really need to bring more people into this work to make it a true team effort," she said at the time.
