California Budget Plan Falls Short: Immigrant Advocates Express Concerns Over Delayed Food Assistance and Lost Support for Children

However, the plan delays a program that would have given food assistance to low-income undocumented seniors by two years. This means that over 100,000 people will still struggle to get the food they need until 2027. Additionally, a program that helps unaccompanied immigrant children with legal and social services will no longer be funded. This program has been helping hundreds of children get the help they need to navigate the immigration system.

Immigrant advocates are disappointed and worried about the delayed food assistance and the loss of the child program. They hope that future budget plans will prioritize immigrant needs and provide more support for their well-being.
