VICTORY: Gov. Brown stands up for immigrant children
Tens of thousands of child refugees fleeing violence in Central America cross the border and are in need of humane treatment at temporary shelters. Almost 6,000 CREDO members urged Governor Brown to immediately step up by helping the federal government find locations in California to temporarily house toddlers and young children, who are being subjected to deplorable conditions in border patrol jails.
Governor Brown said he would do everything he can “to make sure California will do its part to shelter any young children that are in need of protection.” He added, “I would support additional shelters to deal with this particular immediate challenge we have.”
