Statement: Governor Newsom Signs AB 72 for Emergency Funding for Migrant Crisis

02/14/19

County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher (D-San Diego) made the following remarks after California Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 72, which included providing $5 million in Rapid Response Reserve Funds for the migrant crisis in San Diego:     

“Governor Newsom and the San Diego delegation demonstrated compassionate leadership by moving quickly to deliver emergency funds. The State of California’s recognition that San Diego Rapid Response Network and County agencies are filling the gaps left by the Trump Administration’s inhumane immigration policies is appreciated. The relief funds communicate to the nation, and the world, that California believes humanity has no borders.”
