San Diego County District 2 Supervisor Joel Anderson said the county would need help to handle the expected arrivals.

The supervisor told KPBS that he sent letters to President Joe Biden and Gov. Gavin Newsom, asking for more resources.

“District 2 has welcomed more asylum-seekers and refugees than anywhere else in California. And we have opened our arms to people who are coming, fleeing persecution. But what they're proposing now is just so outrageous,” Anderson said.
