Governor Gavin Newsom makes it official. California will distribute $125 million dollars to illegal immigrants as part of the state stimulus program. The federal program did not include illegals.
The governor suggests, however, that $125 million is not enough. He says 10% of the state’s workforce consists of undocumented immigrants. He says they paid more than $2.5 billion dollars in local and state taxes last year.
This week, the federal government began sending out $1200 checks as part of the stimulus package signed into law by president Donald J. Trump.
