Pajaro, CA Residents Homeless, Waiting for Disaster Aid
March 23, 2023 | California
Residents of Pajaro, California, a flooded community in Monterey County, are furious at Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) and President Joe Biden for failing to deliver the federal disaster aid that was promised earlier this month.
As Breitbart News reported March 12, a levee that had not been improved in decades broke during storms and caused a large area of the Pajaro Valley, where many of the nation’s vegetables are grown, to be flooded.
Gov. Newsom visited and promised $42 million in relief aid. However, it turned out that the aid had been signed into law years earlier by President Donald Trump as part of coronavirus relief, and only $300,000 was available. Worse yet, the $300,000 was not specifically for flood relief, but was available in the form of $600 for farmworkers. (Excerpt from Breitbart.)
