Board Gives Consent to Continue Refugee Resettlement Programming


The San Diego County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 voted to submit a response of consent to President Donald Trump’s Executive Order requiring state and local governments to sign-off on accepting the resettlement of refugees in their community.  By giving consent, it will unlock funding to support County and non-profit services that assist with resettling refugees -- legal immigrants -- in San Diego County. Below is Supervisor Nathan Fletcher’s response to the Board’s vote.  

“Supporting refugees is the right thing to do. I am pleased the Board voted to continue welcoming refugees to San Diego County. We have some of the best self-sufficiency outcomes of any refugee resettlement region in the United States; and now we will continue offering humanity, common decency and programming  to help refugees succeed in the United States.”
