To begin with, Newsom has allowed California to maintain its status as a “sanctuary state” for illegal immigrants. This means that Newsom and his administration have forbidden local law enforcement in California from complying with federal immigration authorities in their efforts to deport non-citizens. Newsom has even gone as far as banning arrests for immigration violations across the state of California. Newsom has also egregiously allowed illegal immigrants to serve on state government commissions and boards. Newsom’s rewards for those who violate America’s immigration laws do not stop there. Back in April of 2020, Newsom announced a new $125 million program dedicated to providing cash payments to illegal immigrants. The program was supported by $75 million in taxpayer funds and $50 million from a group of charities. The program provided approximately 150,000 adults, illegal immigrants, $500 each, with a $1,000 cap being placed on total payments per household. Lastly, on July 27, 2021, Newsom signed AB-133 into law. The legislation allows eligible illegal immigrants aged 50 or older to receive taxpayer- funded Medi-Cal insurance. The move is expected to cost California taxpayers upwards of $1.3 billion. 2021/09/07--https://min.amac.us/14-reasons-for-california-to-recall-gavin-newsom-on-september-14th/ August 2021 KKTV dot com 2021/08/10 Sophisticated’ underground tunnel discovered near US-Mexico border.
