"We want to be proactive, not reactive. We want to make sure that those people are safe and don't become victims of crime in our community," said Supervisor Anderson, District 2.

Supervisor Anderson says about a dozen migrants were dropped off at a trolley station in El Cajon in the middle of the night back in December.

"They don't have credit cards, they don't have checkbooks, they have cash, and when you release them past midnight in the dark, they're easy prey for those criminal elements that would take advantage of them," said Supervisor Anderson.

"Before Title 42, we had street releases. So I was very concerned that after we removed Title 42, those street releases would increase dramatically, fortunately, they haven't," said Anderson.

But Anderson wants to be ready. He granted El Cajon forty-thousand dollars of county money to buy a second mobile camera trailer.
