(PoliticalLookout.Com)- California Governor Gavin Newsom might have praised President Trump recently for doing all he can to help the American people during the Chinese coronavirus outbreak, but that doesn’t mean they see eye to eye on major policy issues. Newsom’s most recent move is likely to raise Trump’s eyebrow.
During a press briefing on Wednesday, Newsom announced that the state would be putting aside an incredible $125 million for illegal aliens residing in the state.
Imagine that. You’re a criminal, who entered the country illegally, and the government hands out hundreds of millions in free cash to help you get through a pandemic that’s destroying the lives and jobs of legal American citizens.
In a press release published Tuesday, Newsom outlined some of the measures being taken to support California’s workers, including illegal aliens.
The statement reads:
“The Governor also announced an unprecedented $125 million in disaster relief assistance for working Californians. This first in the nation, statewide public-private partnership will provide financial support to undocumented immigrants impacted by COVID-19. California will provide $75 million in disaster relief assistance and philanthropic partners have committed to raising an additional $50 million.”
Newsom also paid tribute to the state’s diversity, as if that has to do with coronavirus at all.
“California is the most diverse state in the nation. Our diversity makes us stronger and more resilient.”
“Every Californian, including our undocumented neighbors and friends, should know that California is here to support them during this crisis. We are all in this together.”
Yeah, except some of us are legal and pay taxes, and others aren’t.
CA sobresale gracias a las comunidades inmigrantes, no a pesar de ellas.

Newsom’s “Disaster Relief Fund” helps illegal aliens in the state who don’t qualify for the stimulus checks being distributed. Individual illegal aliens may receive a cash payment of $500, and households could access up to $1,000 under Newsom’s plan. The state plans to hand out money to 150,000 illegals in the state.
During the press conference, Newsom explained that 10% of the workforce in California is undocumented.
How have we reached a point where politicians know where the illegal aliens are, know how many are working in the state, and yet nothing is done to rectify the problem? Not only that, but the criminals are rewarded with free money!
