“As the number of people fleeing Ukraine continues to increase, coupled with your recent decision to admit 100,000 refugees into the U.S., the citizens of San Diego are once again willing to welcome the displaced with open arms,” Anderson wrote to the president. “However, to do so successfully will require additional funding from the administration to support this population.”

Anderson requested the Biden administration provide funding to counties proportional to the number of refugees they are receiving in order to help cover resettlement costs.
