He rebuked the President’s for suggesting that United States should “get rid of the whole asylum system,” cut humanitarian aid in Central America and conduct mass deportations of undocumented immigrants.

Gov. Newsom took actions contradicting Trump’s fearmongering such as leading a lawsuit against the public charge rule. California invested $25 million for a Rapid Response Program to help qualified entities in providing critical assistance to migrants during emergencies when federal funding is not available.

The state also allocated $65 million to support qualified nonprofit organizations providing immigration services to low-income Californians applying for humanitarian protections. Additionally, Gov. Newsom expanded health care access to undocumented young people and financial assistance for eligible immigrant students.
