San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher ‘Ready to Help Immigrants’
Excerpts from NBC 7 San Diego story
A San Diego County leader said the region is ready and willing to help migrants being flown to San Diego from U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities in other parts of the nation.
“My office has coordinated with our Health and Human Services Agency and The Rapid Response Network; we are ready to do everything we can to help families being flown to San Diego,” said San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, who oversees District 4.
Fletcher released a statement Friday afternoon in response to the
news that hundreds of detainees from U.S. Customs and Border
Protection facilities in Texas and other sectors would be transferred
to San Diego County.
“Donald Trump has manufactured this immigration crisis to drive his political agenda. His inability to lead has put undue burden on local communities,” Fletcher’s prepared statement continued. “We stand ready to help immigrants and protect the public’s health.”
