Bill To Create Office of New Americans ‘Raises Big Questions,’ Sacramento Bee Editorial Argues
A Sacramento Bee editorial argues that legislation (SB 10) introduced Monday by Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) that would create an Office of New Americans to assist undocumented immigrants "comes straight from the heart." However, the editorial notes that the bill "also raises big questions that must be answered fully as this bill goes through the legislative process," such as how the office would be funded.
