  1. The latest projection is that the State of Massachusetts is spending over $1.9Billion….yes BILLION….per year on costs related to criminal trespassers from other countries in this state illegally.

    When worthwhile, meaningful organizations like AmeriCorps are seeing their funding cut all across this country the people working so hard in these programs should be championing President Trumps efforts to get illegals out of this country. The priorities in this country have been upside down for the past 8 years. Thankfully, we now have a leader who is dedicated to the best interests of Americans.

  2. Oh my God look at that Dunkin Burns!

    They put a kid with brown skin and one with a wheelchair right up front ! You should hurry to your keyboard and type long , hateful diatribes about how brown people and handicapped people should be deported because of the liberal politicians.

    What right do these American citizens who are different looking have to protest? So, first we should get off the brown people, then we should get out the Jews, then what next handicap or the intellectuals? Thanks in advance for public service, because what this country needs is Less young people getting involved in public service and more racist, haters like you.

    • Just so you know, calling me a racists doesn’t offend me, I don’t run like the rest of the hypocrites, especially from anonymous trolls like you. Anytime you want to walk-the-walk, you can post under your real name. Coward.

    • Hey mayor Jimmy Taxman….you know who the real RACISTS are in Haverhill?
      YOU and the entire city council, and ALL of the Haverhill female legislative delegation….that’s who!!!

      Not a single elected representative in Haverhill said a word publicly after a Spanish teenager was dragged into the woods at Riverside Park and raped by two criminal trespassers in this country illegally. Not one of you !!! This included the Haverhill female state rep who is amazingly the State Legislature’s Co-Chairman on the State’s committee on Public Safety!!! But you all would have been looking for front page photo opps had it been a blonde haired, white girl, wouldn’t you ?

      The biggest hypocrite among you is Anchor Andy Vargas … the self-proclaimed voice of Haverhill neighborhoods and minority groups also said nothing. Andy doesn’t speak out regarding a horrific crime against someone his own age and ethnic makeup, but he is very public as we witnessed last week about defending criminal trespassers to stay in this country and city illegally.

      I like it when you comment on here mayor …. it continually provides an opportunity to expose you for the insane liberal hack you are. What better way to expose your track record as mayor, especially during an election year!
