Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), with his state legislature’s assistance, has revealed that California’s two-plus million illegal immigrants may apply for the state’s coronavirus relief program.

Residents in California illegally are now eligible to receive $500 per individual and up to $1,000 per household. 

The Democratic supermajority in Sacramento has allocated $75 million in taxpayer monies for the fund, enough to help about 150,000 people. Observers expect the fund to dry up quickly, although elected officials are hopeful that donations will extend the program’s reach.

While Republicans and independents have lambasted the measure for not being directed at U.S. citizens, undocumented workers’ responses have been equally overwhelming. A massive traffic spike caused California’s coronavirus disaster relief website to crash yesterday.

Yet for liberal activists, Newsom’s announcement doesn’t go far enough.

Fox News has more:

Kim Ouillette, attorney and fellow with Legal Aid at Work, told the paper that the state should “step in and do something more significant” because the funds will only cover a percentage of the immigrants in the state illegally. Applications will be accepted until June 30 or until funds run dry.

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced in April that he would spend $75 million of taxpayer money to create a Disaster Relief Fund for immigrants living in the country illegally.

He was criticized by some Republicans in the state. Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove said at the time that Newsom should spend the money instead on food banks, equipment for students to continue their education online and local governments struggling with revenue losses.

“Instead of meeting these urgent needs, Governor Newsom has chosen to irresponsibly pursue a left-wing path and unilaterally secured $125 million for undocumented immigrants,” said Grove, who represents Bakersfield.

The Supreme Court last week reiterated that encouraging illegals to stay is a CRIME.
Barr should arrest Newsom, or the Citizens of California should make the arrest, and the same goes to any other governor who has given stimulus money to illegals to encourage those illegals to stay.

And if that doesn’t happen, no more Federal aid of any kind.It’s an act of aiding abetting a crime against the USA.

Then they will go to other states. No thanks
This proves that socialism does not work. The socialists always insist that they just need a little more money. How many times do we have to keep giving a little more money to prove socialism does NOT work.

Maybe Newsom wants everyone that’s against him to move out of state.
Hope Trump can get him convicted for harboring illegals and allowed them to vote.
It should be a felony to vote illegally. CA government releases felons and gives them pardons so they can vote.
I can’t believe all the shootings and knifing issues. Drugs are a kit of the problem.

I agree with you on this. The Government should withhold any and all funds go there.

Governor Newsome also is giving money to illegals if they give free blowjobs to all of the Democrats in the state. He is being widely applauded for this action because all Dems want blowjobs in California from homeless illegals.

Yes. I have a new name for our Governor. Governor Nuisance.
The Chinese pine bug cost us billions. Our forest of pine tree is dead. Its awful. About 5 years ago on trip to east coast I saw miles of dead pine trees. This was definitely a fire hazard. Remember the 13 humpers caught in a back fire in AZ.
My grandson was in Forestry fire department. He got out because government wasn’t helping to make them safe.
Was everything that has come from China been intentionally transmitted to hurt our economy. Right before an election we are hit with a vitus.
We haven’t recovered from 08 mess.
We have lots of recalls. Our drugs made in China has to stop. I know 3 people who died from Xarelto. One woman who was so low on blood she had to have transfusions. They can’t find where she is bleeding. Can’t take blood thinner Xarelto or Warfarin. Had to have filter on her heart.
How many people have to die before our government pulls the drugs.
Why is so much food on recall?

What a mess to clean up.
Thank God for the wall

I don’t care if the trinkets are made in China.
I do care that our medicines and military equipment is made in China. Anything that deals with our health and military should ALL be made in the US.

THAT’S DUMB TO SAY (WHOE NELLY) YOU HAVE MORE ILLEGALS IN TEXAS THAN THEY HAVE IN CALIFORNIA. TEXAS WELCOMES ILLEGALS AND GIVES A LOT OF THE TAXPAYERS MONEY. DON’T BE A HYPOCRITE.

You shouldn’t say “you Californians”. I didn’t vote for him and don’t think it is correct to include everybody.You should say “democrat” californians.

YOU DON’T GET IT LARRY THIS WORLD IS FALLING APART BECAUSE THE SOCIALIST COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS ARE THE ONES THAT ARE GIVING MONEY TO NOT ONLY CALIFORNIA BUT OTHER SANCTUARY STATES AND CITIES. PELOSI AND SCHUMER AND THE REST OF THE SWAMP WANTS THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HERE FOR THEIR VOTES. SO THEY SUPPORT THEM. AND TRUMP CAN’T STOP THEM BECAUSE OF THE LAWS THEY HAVE ON THE BOOKS IN FAVOR OF THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. SO BLAME THE FILTHY HOUSE OF CONGRESS AND THE **** DEMOCRATS.
