A public Facebook post made by University of Maine at Machias (UMM) employee Vincent Reed on Tuesday, July 23 alleged that UMM is considering approving housing for refugee families on campus, without soliciting community input. The post was shared nearly 200 times within 15 hours. 

"Do not let this be forced on Washington county.. This. if it does happen will happen quickly," wrote Reed.
