Why would he do this…
The Californian Democratic governor has recently stated that he is going to be giving $500 per person to around 150,000 illegals in the state. The total cost of the giveaway is $125 million from state taxpayers.
The statement says:
California will give cash payments to immigrants living in the country illegally, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday, using a mix of taxpayer money and charitable contributions to give 150,000 adults $500 each during the coronavirus outbreak.
California has an estimated 2 million immigrants living in the country illegally. They are not eligible for the $2.2 trillion stimulus package approved by Congress last month, which gives cash payments to most Americans plus boosts unemployment benefits by $600 per week.
“We feel a deep sense of gratitude for people that are in fear of deportations that are still addressing essential needs of tens of millions of Californians,” said Newsom, who noted 10% of the state’s workforce are immigrants living in the country illegally who paid more than $2.5 billion in state and local taxes last year.
So it looks like the government in California will be taking from hardworking citizens who pay there taxes and giving free money to illegals because apparently they deserve exactly what American citizens deserve.
