Last week Governor Gavin Newsom announced the State would give $500 in aid to undocumented individuals who will not be eligible for help from the Federal Government. But activists say this isn't enough. On April 20, activists and legislators called on Gov. Newsom to offer more support for undocumented workers. In this excerpt from that press conference, San Francisco Supervisor Hillary Ronen talks about how the pandemic is affecting the undocumented community in the Bay Area.
