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.
