Mary Mayhew on Immigration
Slash funds for new immigrants & asylum seekers
The Legislature's Appropriations Committee is working its way through Gov. LePage's proposed 2-year budget, which includes major cuts to the Department of Health and Human Services. Among them is the elimination of state funding for the General
Assistance program, and eliminating welfare benefits for many non-citizens, including new immigrants and asylum seekers. DHHS Commissioner Mary Mayhew told lawmakers those and other cuts are needed, so that DHHS can help state government reduce costs.
