California will spend $ 125 million to pay illegal immigrants to coronavirus
California Governor Gavin Newsome announces payment of cash benefits to illegal immigrants residing in the state, reports CNBC.
The fund for illegal payments will consist of taxpayers' money and charitable donations. So, 150 thousand people will receive a benefit of $ 500 as support in difficult quarantine times. In total, there are about 2 million illegal immigrants in the state of California who cannot apply for payouts for Americansapproved by Congress last month.
“We are deeply grateful to the people who, through their work, provide for the needs of tens of millions of Californians, despite the fact that they have to be in constant fear of deportation,” said Newsom.
The governor noted that 10% of the state’s workforce is made up of illegal immigrants who paid more than $ 2,5 billion in taxes in 2019.
The fund for payments to illegal immigrants will consist of $ 75 million taken from the state taxpayers' money, and $ 50 million donated by charitable organizations. Funds such as the Emerson Collective, Blue Shield of California Foundation, California Endowment, James Irvine Foundation, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and one anonymous sponsor have already donated $ 5,5 million.
Gavin Newsome noted that the amount of payments will not depend on a person’s income and will be fixed $ 500, recipients will not collect personal information and immigration data.
California is known as the state with the most aggressive illegal immigration policy. In 2019, she became the first state to provide free medical assistance to poor illegal immigrants under the age of 25 years. This year, the governor proposed to expand the program for older people aged 65 years and older.
