The New York Times reported the state legislature created a COVID relief fund to give unemployed illegal immigrants a one-time payment of up to $15,600 each if they can prove that they lived in New York and were out of work due to the pandemic. The "excluded workers fund" contains $2.1 billion for the effort and was included as part of passing New York's $212 billion budget in an agreement reached on Tuesday.

San Diego County has answered a call by HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra to house unaccompanied minors who cross the U.S. border illegally. Under the federally funded HHS Refugee Resettlement Program, children who cross the border without parents will be offered food, shelter, and healthcare until they can be processed. In San Diego, 70 of the 700 girls currently being housed at the San Diego Convention Center have tested positive for COVID-19.

Following reports that there are more than 13,000 unaccompanied minors in U.S. custody and that steady streams of people illegally crossing the border continue to add to an already massive processing backlog for ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has asked for air support to move people to states along the Canadian border, according to the Washington Post.
