Authored by Supervisors Joel Anderson and Nora Vargas, the motion directs the chief administrative officer “to identify actions that can be taken to ensure asylum seekers entering the U.S. will not add to the region’s current homeless crisis,” according to information on the board’s Tuesday agenda.

Anderson described Vargas a great partner on crafting compassionate policies for asylum seekers and refugees.

“Between our two districts, we have welcomed more refugees than anyplace else west of the Mississippi” from nations such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, he said. “We’ve got to have a better program than just street releases.”
