Libtard Newsom allocates $75 million for Disaster Relief Fund for immigrants who
are in the country illegally

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California will be the first state to give cash to
immigrants living in the country illegally who are hurt by the coronavirus,
offering $500 apiece to 150,000 adults who were left out of the $2.2 trillion
stimulus package approved by Congress.

Many Americans began receiving $1,200 checks from the federal government this
week, and others who are unemployed are getting an additional $600 a week from
the government that has ordered them to stay home and disrupted what had been a
roaring economy.

But people living in the country illegally are not eligible for any of that
money, and advocates have been pushing for states to fill in the gap. Wednesday,
Gov. Gavin Newsom announced he would spend $75 million of taxpayer money to
create a Disaster Relief Fund for immigrants living in the country illegally.

“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.

Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove said 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.

California has an estimated 2.2 million immigrants living in the country
illegally, the most of any state, according to the Pew Research Center. State
officials won’t decide who gets the money. Instead, the state will give the
money to a network of regional nonprofits to find and vet potential recipients.
Advocates say that’s key to making the plan work because immigrants are unlikely
to contact the government for fear of deportation.

“You need to use organizations that have trusted relationships with these
families,” said Jacqueline Martinez, CEO of the Latino Community Foundation.

A group of charities has committed to raising another $50 million for the fund
from private donors, potentially offering benefits to another 100,000 people.
But that money will have fewer limitations, meaning grants could be more than
$500 or less, depending on the cost-of-living where a person lives.

Organizers began raising money on Friday and have raised more than $6 million so
far, with contributions from the Emerson Collective, Blue Shield of California
Foundation, the California Endowment, the James Irvine Foundation, the Chan
Zuckerberg Initiative and an anonymous donor.

“We want this to be as equitable as possible and benefit as many people as
possible,” said Daranee Petsod, president of Grantmakers Concerned with
Immigrants and Refugees.

California has been the most aggressive state in the nation when it comes to
giving benefits to immigrants living in the country illegally. Last year,
California became the first state to give taxpayer-funded health benefits to
low-income adults 25 and younger living in the country illegally. This year,
Newsom had proposed expanding those benefits to seniors 65 and older.

The spending announced Wednesday means Newsom has committed to spending more
than $2 billion responding to the coronavirus, an extraordinary amount in just
over one month. Thursday, state lawmakers are scheduled to have their first
oversight hearing of Newsom’s spending.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as
fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older
adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe
illness, including pneumonia, and death.

California has more than 26,600 confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 850
deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Those numbers
are far behind other virus hot spots like U.S. like New York and New Jersey,
which public health officials attribute to the state’s aggressive implementation
of physical distancing and stay-at-home orders.

Since mid-March, 2.7 million Californians have filed for unemployment benefits —
more than all of the claims California processed in 2019 combined. The state’s
Employment Development Department has been overwhelmed, causing delays for many
people seeking assistance.

Wednesday, Newsom announced the state’s call center will expand its hours to 8
a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. More than 1,300 state employees have been
reassigned to help process the claims. And Newsom said the state will begin
distributing federal unemployment benefits by the end of the month to people who
usually aren’t eligible for them, including the gig workers and the
self-employed.

At least five other states are already issuing those benefits, prompting
criticism from some state lawmakers.

“The people in Sacramento are making promises, and the bureaucracies and the
technology are failing the people,” Republican state Assemblyman Jim Patterson
said.

TRUMP should deduct that $75 Million dollars from the Corona Virus cash,
because California could have used that to help actual Americans and NOT
South Americans nd Mexicans and others who are here illegally. Let them
turn themselves in if they want government assistance. Then they can
get assistance in jail or on the ride back to their own country.
