Michigan, led by Democrats, is encouraging residents to open their homes to migrants as the state grapples with a surge of asylum seekers, despite concerns about safety.

Residents are required to commit to a 90-day program, according to the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Development.

Residents are being requested to assist with relocation needs as part of the refugee support program in response to the border crisis, and establish a new home in the state.

“The Office of Global Michigan’s goal is to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities. With expanded refugee resettlement pathways, everyday Michiganders can provide refuge and build a state where people are welcomed with open arms.” Poppy Hernandez, Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer remarked.

Residents are requested to assist the individual or family upon their arrival at the airport, aiding in locating accommodation, enrolling children in school, and supporting adults in securing employment as members of the Welcome Corps.

The migrants in question are expected to come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, Venezuela, or Ukraine.
