Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch requested a temporary restraining order against California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and his Director of the California Department of Social Services Kim Johnson to prevent them from giving nearly $80 million of taxpayers money in cash payments and benefits to illegal aliens amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
The court found that Newsom likely had no authority to give illegal aliens taxpayer money but that there was a public interest in sending tax money to illegal aliens during the Coronavirus crisis. Judicial Watch reported.
It is astonishing that a court would allow a public official to ignore the law and spend tax money with no legal authority. Simply put, as the court seems to acknowledge, the governor has no independent legal authority to spend state taxpayer money for cash payments to illegal aliens. We will appeal the courts manifest error, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.
Last month Gavin Newsom announced cash payments to illegal aliens who were not eligible for the Coronavirus stimulus package passed by Congress which gave cash to many tax-paying Americans who were affected by the Coronavirus.
California has several million illegal aliens living in the US.
So now Newsom is taking money from struggling Americans and redistributing it to illegal aliens.
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.
Judicial Watchs lawsuit argued the California state legislature had not enacted any law that affirmatively provided that illegal aliens were eligible for the Coronavirus cash payments and benefits announced by Newsom.
The Court agreed with Judicial Watch that what Newsom did was likely illegal, but they allowed him to proceed anyway.
Judicial Watch announced it will be appealing the courts manifest error.
Screw the law, do what you want.
Thats what they are telling the Governor.
They may not like it when we all take that view.
Democrats rarely lose. They are a criminal enterprise with webs everywhere.
You will have your home invaded and go to jail. He’ll be on to his next scheme.
Cal spends 25 bill year on services to illegals. Now the state has passed bill to provide stimulant money to illegals.
Let Cal pay its own way till they cut the crap.
This seems like a good place to put this:
As of April 30, California borrowed $348 million from the federal government to ensure Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit payments are made to eligible unemployed workers, the Employment Development Department said in a statement to The Bee.
President Trump should ensure that $80 million of federal funding is cut from any money given to California, and make it a central point of a White House telecast. Nuisance Newsom needs to be publicly humiliated for what he did. (We all know he intends to make a run in 2024 for the presidency, he needs to be exposed now.)
This same court would likely have given John Dillinger a pass
They do about the same thing in Washington State we pay inmates unemployment.
They are only admitting those two years.If that’s the case, if they found it 2015, why didn’t they identify it and what actions taken to offset it?
This is why I won’t give any money to the schools (no vote) for their levies. The state school system is audited by the state auditor. In other words, they audit themselves.
They are a complete lying screwup. They just hide money anywhere they can. Trust them.....?
Its illegal, but it advances collectivism. Two thumbs up! /s
The Result: NO BAILOUT MONEY of ANY KIND EVER for CALIFORNIA!
