Newsom Proposes Immigration Rapid Response Program to Aid Asylum Seekers


Governor Gavin Newsom is thanking San Diego nonprofits and city leaders for taking care of asylum seekers.



The Democrat wants the state Legislature to approve 25-million dollars for an Immigration Rapid Response Program to help non-profits and organizations assisting those looking for asylum. He told reporters yesterday California would not be getting involved to help migrants if it wasn’t for the work non-profits have already done. Newsom also accused the federal government of abdicating its moral responsibility and slowing down the asylum review process.
