Times columnist John Horgan has his ear to the ground on a topic that several B'gamers have asked me about in the last month--locating (select any one adjective and noun of your choice: illegal, undocumented, endangered, migrants, immigrants, refugees) here in the County. He notes
Don't be shocked if the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors decides to emulate its peers in San Francisco and Santa Clara counties and invites the federal government to locate some migrant children, who have recently come to the U.S. illegally, here on the Peninsula. At the very least, let's just hope there is some healthy public discussion with citizen taxpayers about any such move.
Talk about a hot button issue--I was on the East Coast this week and it has even reached a fevered pitch there and it appeared to me that the usual political spectrum has been scrambled. Just because someone was basically on the Left did not translate to a "Take them in" perspective in quite a few instances. Given how supes are elected, how would they decide where in the County to do this?
