Becerra is a terrible choice to deal with public health, given his complete failure to stop the spread of covid-19 in California prisons, where Latinos who are not privileged like him are suffering.

Terrible? Really? As a resident of Ca., I’ve seen that the governor released many prisoners from S.Q. The problem is,as I understand it, NOT to release the VIOLENT criminals back into society until they have proven themselves able to live within the boundaries of good propriety. So I will disagree with you on that point.

Also, would you also put the blame for all of the nursing home deaths in Ca. on the shoulders of Becerra?

It’s the confined living quarters of each of those scenarios which causes the wildfire spread of the disease.
