Governor Newsom Talks Border Budget in San Diego Today

 

California’s new governor is talking immigration. Governor Gavin Newsom will be in San Diego today discussing his proposal to spend millions of dollars for a so-called immigration rapid response program. The idea is to get services to asylum seekers. Newsom calls the situation at the border a humanitarian crisis, but in 2008 when he was Mayor of San Francisco, he reportedly implemented a policy that illegal immigrants arrested for felonies be turned over to federal immigration authorities.
