Gavin Newsom Welcomes Afghan Refugees to California: ‘We’re a State of Refuge’

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Monday said the Golden State would welcome Afghan refugees in the wake of the Taliban retaking their warn-torn country following the Biden administration’s badly botched withdrawal of U.S. forces.

“We’re a state of refuge,” Newsom stated as he addressed the issue of refugees during a “Vote No” recall rally in Northern California, ABC 7 first reported. “I’m proud of the fact over the last decade California has taken in more refugees than any other state in America, and I’m proud of the fact a disproportionate number of Afghani refugees are here in Northern California, not just here in the south, but also up in Sacramento County.

“We’re already working in terms of a lot of those refugees coming in and working with CBOs and non-profit organizations to make sure that they feel welcome and celebrated as members of our community,” the governor added.
