Once again, a Democrat is going out of his way to provide for people who are in the country illegally.
California’s Democrat governor Gavin Newsom has announced a fund with over a hundred million dollars in it which will provide stimulus checks to illegal immigrants.

California’s Newsom announces $125M fund to give coronavirus stimulus checks to immigrants in state illegally
California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Wednesday plans to give cash payments to adult immigrants living illegally in the state to help them weather the coronavirus crisis.
The plan, which would use a mix of taxpayer money and charitable donations from corporations and philanthropists, will give 150,000 adults $500 each during the coronavirus outbreak, the governor said.
California has had an estimated 2 million immigrants living in the country illegally. They have not been eligible for the $2.2 trillion stimulus package approved by Congress last month, which pledged cash payments to most Americans while boosting 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, a Democrat, who noted 10 percent of the state’s workforce consisted of immigrants living in the country illegally who paid over $2.5 billion in state and local taxes last year.
Taxpayers would be kicking in $75 million for the money, while a group of charities has committed to raise another $50 million for a total of $125 million.
So California is taking money from taxpayers and giving it to non-citizens? That’s outrageous.
Gavin Newsom has just announced that he's putting together a $125,000,000 relief fund for illegal aliens.
Never forget that the Democrat Party will ALWAYS prioritize anyone except for American citizens.
