|COVID-19: California To Give Struggling Immigrants $500 Stimulus Check by Nobody: 4:38pm On Apr 16, 2020|
California governor, Gavin Newsom has announced that struggling illegal Immigrants affected by the pandemic will get $500 each.
Governor Gavin made the announcement on Wednesday, saying State taxpayers will shell out $75 million from their Disaster Relief Fund, and another $50 billion will come from a network of philanthropic foundations to help illegal immigrants struggling to pay bills.
“WE FEEL A DEEP SENSE OF GRATITUDE FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE IN FEAR OF DEPORTATIONS THAT ARE STILL ADDRESSING ESSENTIAL NEEDS OF TENS OF MILLIONS OF CALIFORNIANS,” SAID NEWSOM, WHO NOTED 10% OF THE STATE’S WORKFORCE ARE IMMIGRANTS LIVING IN THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY PAID MORE THAN $2.5 BILLION IN STATE AND LOCAL TAXES LAST YEAR.
“EVERY CALIFORNIAN, INCLUDING OUR UNDOCUMENTED NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS, SHOULD KNOW THAT CALIFORNIA IS HERE TO SUPPORT THEM DURING THIS CRISIS,” THE DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR ADDED. “WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.”
Newsom said the money will not be distributed based on income. “There won’t be any need for their personal information to get those support,” he said.
Illegal immigrants will be able to apply for the money beginning in May.
