Mayor Lee and San Francisco Treasurer José Cisneros on Wells Fargo Targeting Immigrant Communities
“We are deeply troubled by the allegations that Wells Fargo specifically targeted immigrants in their account opening scandal.
Immigrant communities are already under attack by the federal government. San Francisco stands up and supports its immigrant communities, so it is particularly worrisome that these reports are linked to our hometown bank.
As has been requested by my office and the Treasurer, Wells Fargo must immediately disclose the number of San Franciscans affected, and explain what corrective actions the bank is taking to support our immigrant residents.”
