Re: “Operation Stonegarden Funding Denied for Humanitarian Aid Reimbursement Costs

The acceptance of these funds was predicated on a chunk of them being used for the humanitarian needs of refugees. Was it foreseeable that the Trump administration would deny the use of these funds for that purpose?

Re: “Operation Stonegarden Funding Denied for Humanitarian Aid Reimbursement Costs

If you look back on the debate about whether to accept the Stonegarden funds, the Board of Supervisors originally rejected the funding so as not to be beholden to federal immigration authorities in doing their job enforcing violations of immigration law. The Board was persuaded to accept the funds, by Sheriff Napier, only after it was argued that the funds could also be used to fund refugee assistance programs. The USBP position is narrow minded and short sighted, because having a bunch of refugees on the street with no assistance or services while their applications are pending, is not good for anyone, and just serves to destabilize the situation. Not all border security should be defined through the lens of military and police power.
