SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement today in response to President Trump’s proposed plans to deport undocumented immigrants, including asylum seekers:
“The President’s proposed raids are cruel, misdirected and are creating unnecessary fear and anxiety. I want Californians to know they have legal rights and protections, regardless of their immigration status. California is a place of refuge – that includes our schools, our courts and our hospitals and clinics. We hold certain institutions sacred and people should continue to access programs and services they need.”
