Apparently the federal government has been listening to Massachusetts’ concerns about its shrinking population. According to the US Census, the Bay State has lost people the last two years, as more and more folks decide they just can’t afford to live in Taxachusetts. So they’ve quietly been moving people into the state.
But the natives aren’t overly appreciative, nor are they welcoming the newcomers with open arms. It seems that the nearly 500 new folks on the block are all located at the former Fort Devens, at the prison.
More specifically, the prison’s hospital, which has taken in 459 federal sex offenders over the last year or so.
Unfortunately, it appears that these new neighbors don’t show up on this map…
