Illegal Aliens Jam Phone Lines as California Offers $500 Each in Coronavirus Relief

The Supreme Court ruled that encouraging an illegal alien to stay in the United States is a criminal offense.  That makes the Supreme Leader, Regressive De. Guv Newsom a criminal.  He is taking tax dollars, $75 million and giving it to illegal aliens.  He did that without a vote of the Legislature.  But the Legislature voted close to a billion dollars for FREE health care for illegal aliens while vets are homeless and the elderly can not afford quality health care.  Crime?  You bet.

“The State of California is offering $500 each to illegal aliens as part of a $75 million coronavirus relief program — even as it asks federal taxpayers for help paying for its $54 billion deficit.

The program, which launched on Monday, saw phone lines jammed as “undocumented immigrants,” who are ineligible for the federal aid provided thus far, called a state hotline.

Newsom is giving members of Congress from Iowa, Texas, Florida, the Dakota’s to vote NO on any aid to California.  Newsom is spending, per his budget, $20 million dollars to sue companies for allowing people to work for them part time—per AB 5.  Why should the folks in Tennessee bail out a corrupt, socialist State?

Illegal Aliens Jam Phone Lines as California Offers $500 Each in Coronavirus Relief

Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart,   5/19/20

The State of California is offering $500 each to illegal aliens as part of a $75 million coronavirus relief program — even as it asks federal taxpayers for help paying for its $54 billion deficit.

The program, which launched on Monday, saw phone lines jammed as “undocumented immigrants,” who are ineligible for the federal aid provided thus far, called a state hotline.

The New York Times reported:

Within minutes after the phone lines opened, many people reported they could not get through, and by 10 a.m., an hour after it opened, many of the phone lines crashed.

The $75 million cash assistance program, awarded on a first-come first-served basis, was being conducted almost entirely by telephone to avoid hazardous in-person contacts.

The available funding will allow only about 150,000 immigrants to benefit, according to state officials.

The governor, Gavin Newsom, announced in mid-April that the state would provide $75 million in cash assistance to the 150,000 who are selected. Philanthropic organizations and private donors pledged an additional $50 million, for another 100,000 immigrants.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union on Sunday that the federal government has a “moral” and “ethical” obligation to fund ailing state and local governments. He added that Republicans who did not provide such funding would be short-changing “our heroes, our first responders, our police officers, and firefighters.”

Notably, Newsom discussed “citizens,” not “residents,” in describing the beneficiaries of federal aid to the states: “We have an obligation, a moral, an ethical obligation to American citizens all across this country to help support cities, states and counties,” he said.

Neither Newsom nor Tapper addressed the issue of California’s “sanctuary” laws, which limit cooperation with federal immigration law enforcement. President Donald Trump has commented that he might make lifting “sanctuary” laws a condition of receiving federal aid.

    The law says it is illegal. The Supreme Court says it is illegal. The people leaving the State of Kalif. say is is illegal.

    Who backs this? It is the Nation Killer Democrat Socialists who don’t care about the rule of law, maintenance of the US as a nation, or the Constitution.

    Remember when the History of Western Civilization ws required to go to college? That taught the failures of dictators and stupid politics like Communism (after all Socialists are only Communist light).

    And you voted Democrat why? Don’t have a choice with “top two”??? Vote no confidence.

  2. Bogiewheel says

    The California voter must now understand that torpidity at the ballot
    box has contributed to eradicating democracy from this State and has
    now been replaced with a complacent collective Oligarchy.
    The voter, here and elsewhere, must understand the importance of
    the 2020 National election and not allow this Cabal in Sacramento
    to impact National statecraft.
