BREAKING: CA Supreme Court Orders Gov. Respond Re Unemployment Benefits for Undocumenteds

‘Not a slush fund for the Governor to spend as he sees fit’

By Katy Grimes, April 23, 2020 6:17 pm

While more than 3 million California citizens are  awaiting state unemployment benefits because of Governor Gavin Newsom’s order for statewide lockdown, the governor announced last week he was extending $75 million to undocumented immigrants to be passed-through unnamed regional non-profit associations.

However, the Center for American Liberty’s lawsuit, in coordination with The Dhillon Law Group, filed an emergency petition with the California Supreme Court Wednesday asking the Court to immediately halt Governor Newsom’s appropriation of $75 million for the undocumented immigrants.

As attorney Mark Meuser with the Center for American Liberty and the Dhillon Law Group explained, the federal government and California both have statutes that prohibit providing unemployment benefits to undocumented immigrants, and violates the state’s Constitution.

“We are asking the court on an emergency basis to rule that Gavin Newsom not be allowed to expend these funds,” Meuser said.

Thursday, the California Supreme Court challenged Gov. Newsom’s overreach and ordered the governor and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to respond to the Center for American Liberty’s emergency Writ.

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon celebrated this decision with a Tweet:

and

 

“The Governor made clear in his comments that he is giving $75 million in lieu of unemployment benefits that state and federal law bar to aliens working here illegally,” said attorney Harmeet Dhillon, Chief Executive Officer of the Center for American Liberty. “It is also concerning that unnamed nonprofits, who have no accountability to the taxpayer, are going to receive and distribute taxpayer dollars.”

“This is taxpayer money that may only be appropriated by the legislative branch. This is not a slush fund for the Governor to spend as he sees fit,” Dhillon said. “Governor Newsom is ignoring the proper, and constitutional, channel to appropriate funds. At a time when law-abiding Californians are crushed by unemployment, housing issues, business closures, and massive limitations on our normal lives, Governor Newsom is doing an end-run around the legal guardrails in place. There is no accountability over the distribution of these funds to individuals legally not entitled to cash benefits. The laws apply to everyone, even the Governor, and we hope the California Supreme Court will agree.”

  1. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS LEAVE the state of California! I DO NOT CONSENT to spending my tax dollars to support any illegals for ANY REASON at all … That is Mexicos problem! GAVIN NEWSOM LOST the election by 9% … Why is he in the Governors Seat??? SHAME SHAME SHAME !

    1. Exactly The Election was Rigged by Democrats Trying to Steal Governors Office. Newsom Must Go. Recall Newsom and I DO NOT CONSENT TO MY US TAX DOLLARS GOUNH TO ILLEGALS WHO ARE UNEMPLOYED IN CALIFORNIA. GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN ILLEGALS. WE NEED THOSE JOBS BECAUSE YOU TAKING THEM FORCES US INTO THE STREETS!
      NO MORE JOBS FOR ILLEGALS AMETICAND WILL WORK THEM. FARM JOBS TOO FOR A BETTER WAGE AND TRUMP WILL HELP FARMERS. GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY.

        1. Prim-rose; for 66 years I have seen documented and undocumented temporary farmworkers and others coming to work in USA and it is more prevalent today because our population has grown and the need so the need has grown as well for farmworkers/agricultural workers/ construction/restaurant workers/gardeners/ hotel workers (maids, cooks, gardeners, busboys, dish-washers ,etc.). Do NOT BLAME THESE WORKERS THAT ARE THE USA’S-YOUR UNDERGROUND SLAVES. Without them we will have shortages in animal farms; chickens, pigs, cattle, and many other areas like Slaughter houses. We need them out in open but with DOCUMENTS. Do not MALIGN them, malign government, business, industry, etc. that look the other way because they know undocumented are needed and would cause shortages. Thank the undocumented and have Business, Industry, etc. pay into unemployment., Social Security, health accounts, etc. that they have neglected to contribute and expect the average USA JOE and Jane to pick up tab.

          1. You are kidding right? What part of illegal do you not grasp? I resent the fact that people say they do jobs Americans don’t want, that is b.s. Illegals send most of their money back
            I am Hispanic, my Grandmother came here after standing inline and waiting her turn. We need to quit rewarding bad behavior.

          2. Wrong. The US had a formal program for years that accepted ‘undocumented’ seasonal workers who were KNOWN. There’s no reason why it can’t be applied now. Here is a list of sites and reference articles:
            https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=AwrWnKLQYKReTFkACAEPxQt.;_ylc=X1MDMjExNDcwMDU1OQRfcgMyBGZyA3locy1oaWRkZW4tZXBpYwRncHJpZAN6SWQxUUdaUFJvLi5LY2l1UU4yVFhBBG5fcnNsdAMwBG5fc3VnZwMxMARvcmlnaW4Dc2VhcmNoLnlhaG9vLmNvbQRwb3MDMgRwcXN0cgNicmFjZXJvBHBxc3RybAM3BHFzdHJsAzE1BHF1ZXJ5A2JyYWNlcm8lMjBwcm9ncmFtBHRfc3RtcAMxNTg3ODMxMDI1BHVzZV9jYXNlAw–?p=bracero+program&fr2=sa-gp-search&hspart=hidden&hsimp=yhs-epic

          3. Those are green card holders, thus not here illegally. Those are not who people are referring to in these posts. It’s the border jumpers who sit back and feed off the welfare system .

      1. If you were illegal and voted you counter Voted against Americans Citizens who Matter More than you. America First!
        Leave California Illegals We are Citizens and were tired of footing the tax bill you keep throwing on us.

      2. That’s brilliant. So why don’t you get out in the fields and work your butt off follow wages instead of sitting around posting stupid, hateful crap. The jobs are there if you’re not too lazy to get off your couch and go do them.

        1. What happened to the workers program where a company legally imported workers for those jobs and was responsible for them until the job was complete and they were returned home? There’s the legal method to hire workers for those jobs. Problem solved.

          1. Well said Jerry. For those who didn’t know, Mexico and the US came to such an agreement way back in 1942, it was the Bracero Program.

          2. Jerry,
            The program exists, we have been getting our work force for the tomato harvest for 3 seasons and now getting ready for our 4th season with H-2A workers, the workers are provided with a work Visa on a temporary or seasonal basis which provides a guaranteed labor force for employers to get the job done. If you need information you can send me an email and I will be happy to share with you our experience with the program. Ileanaarvizu@gmail.com

        2. Why don’t you stop typing replies and get off your “fat ass” and into the fields if you feel so strongly about protecting illegal aliens you liberal dipshit!

          1. Dems cry about min wage but allow undocumented to work in the fields for such low pay. “Why dont you work in the fields” is a call for the places to pay min wage and I am sure many would apply and sign up. Cant have it both ways crying no American will go pick fruit for such low wages but all companies have to pay X minimum wage.

        3. Hey Tom why don’t just move to Mexico & hang out with your criminal friend so we can keep posting the truth about what is really going on! GFYO

        4. Exactly! With California’s minimum salary laws are legal citizens can be employed in this important secment of our economy. Our workers who have lost their jobs will have an option to earn the monies so importantly need to pay rent and importantly provide much needed monies for food

    2. Why inGODS GREEN EARTH IS NEWSOM IN THE GOVERNOR SEAT HOW DID NEWSOM GET THERE WHO PUT NEWSOM IN THAT SET
      IF OUR VOTES DID NOT 😠😡🤬🤮I FOR ONE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE DIRTY ROTTEN CROOKED BASTARD THAT 😈🌚 DID IT🌚🤮🥶

      1. Start with the Getty family, but don’t stop there…there are a few more “elite” families, too, including Pelosi.

    3. Undocumented immigrant workers in California ALONE paid $2.5 Billion dollars in taxes with an ITIN (individual tax ID number) in 2019. These are NOT YOUR TAXES. It’s their money that they paid because they have to just like everyone else does. Yet they can’t qualify for unemployment, receive any federal help, and will never be able to receive SSI or retire. The IRS allows them to pay taxes as they should like every other worker in the US.

      1. Unfortunately for them it’s the law and they have to abide by it. I feel if they are illegal they shouldn’t be here anyway and should not be allowed any benefits. Name a few countries that give benefits to illegals. If people dont like a law no one is allowed to skirt it and do what they want not even the govenor the people should change it. I dont see that happening.

      2. You better be afraid. With Donald Trump’s second term… you will be caught and sent back to Mexico where you belong along with the other illegals that have infested the United States! Be afraid…. BE VERY AFRAID…

        1. When donald trump is elected the second time ..they will for sure get there asses out of here….its coming faster than u think

      3. stop calling them IMMIGRANTS ! u r using the typical liberal ploy of playing the word game. immigrant means that they immigrated here LEGALLY ! waited in line for their turn to take advantage of ALL THE GREAT things this country has to offer. THAT, is an IMMIGRANT ! An ILLEGAL ALIEN broke our countries laws by coming here ILLEGALLY . they have NO RIGHTS ! they need to return to the country of their orgin. Remember, NO ONE NO ONE NO ONE has a RIGHT to come here .

        1. Well said. As a Legal Immigrant I w
          Entered the country in 1961. One had to swearunder oath not to riot, or cause disturbances, and be self supportive, not rely on State Benefits, HAVE REQUIRED SKILLS, etc. etc.
          It was not a ticket to FREEBIES.
          I resent anyone trying to justify illegals here. It is a slap in the face to ALL those who waited patiently and entered legally. I became a U.S. Citizen and was proud to be an American.
          If people don’t like the laws here they should contact their Legislators.
          Meantime if illegal status is given a free for all, that means our Laws are. It enforced and we become vigilantes. Why have Police, and all the people who keep us safe if we are to ignore the laws. It’s completely ridiculous and I am glad a lawsuit has been filed to stop the flagrant disregard for the law.i only hope it is successful. I believeGovernor Newsom’s heart is in the right place but sometimes we can’t just act on emotion but must follow the law to act responsibly. Otherwise why have any law?

      4. Sorry, but you knew that already!! The ITIN is OFTEN used fraudulently to claim multiple exemptions on their tax filings. Most of the illegals know how to game the system & often receive higher tax refunds than most Americans through cheating! Most work cash under-the-table jobs anyway & NEVER file an ITIN. They ARE our taxes for putting your illegal kids in our schools, feeding them breakfast & lunch & most likely putting a roof over your heads, all while REAL Americans go without. Do you think for one minute I would get a handout in another country if I were in Italy, Spain, or even Mexico? Get real!

        1. In California, illegals also qualify for free healthcare and tuition. I hope the Federal Government says, No Financial Handouts of any kind to illegal Santuary States that protect and give our tax dollars to support ILLEGAL ALIENS instead of supporting American Citizens!

      5. Thank you for spreading facts and positivity. These comments are ridiculous. As a Californian who voted for Newsom with many immigrant associates, they are entitled to funds as well. He’s very aware of their extreme contribution to the economy and work force hence why it’s necessary. I’ve seen a lot of immigrants hustle a lot harder than some American citizens I know. Trust! calm down and educate yourself. Stop the hate guys.

        1. no hate just facts. They are illegal plain and simple. An immigrant is someone who is here legally. You have a horrendous homeless problem but no one seems to be concerned about that. Take care of your own first.

        2. Mari all that may be true but your not looking at the big picture. All the bad ones not number the good ones which cost the citizens WAY more then they pay in. it a different world most illegals I come across can read or write in any language. the farming industry has changed so much that machines are replacing low cost labor by the day. My co workers family has many farms and they all getting these machines I had the opportunity to see these machines and its amazing. they are easily affordable & ready to go. So its not hate its that fact that I don’t understand why they think they are ENTITLED TO WHAT I WORKED FOR

      6. It’s still against the law for illegal immigrants to work in the U.S. ITIN or not. Just because the Democrats skirted the law, all other laws still pertain. Why don’t you stand for Americans instead of illegals.

      7. Bull crap if these people came here “LEGALLY” they would have access to everything you mentioned so proof is in the pudding !

      8. Hey Tom why don’t just move to Mexico & hang out with your criminal friend so we can keep posting the truth about what is really going on! GFYO

      9. B.S. LIES … THEY SHOULD NOT BE HERE ,GO BACK TO THE COUNTRY YOU LOVE SO MUCH AND STOP SUCKING IT OUT OF AMERICANS

      10. thank you!!! I also have family who are undocumented working with lawyers to get their paperwork going but it also takes years! And another thing you are supposed have a big amount of money yearly in order to get your green card, and working low wage income because you are not legal it’s hard and yet they get a W2 each year and have to pay taxes and receive nothing back because they have an ITIN number.
        This People all saying bad things about illegal immigrants need to do some big research and learn how all of this really works.

        1. Heidi
          maybe you don’t know the meaning of ILLEGAL but the rule of law must be followed. they had a choice and they have chosen to come ILLEGAL. this country is broke and all these illegals are draining our systems. they COST more then they pay and yes I am a researcher on this subject. years ago that may have been true but not any more don’t listen to them old democrats they are so out of touch it laughable

      11. Lmao, you are full of crap. They come here single men, claim married with 9 dependants and have hardly shit taken out of their pay for taxes and somehow without a S.S. they have figured out a way to get tax refunds for the liitje taxes they paid in, PLUS, RMTHEY DUMBASSES IN THE IRS GIVE THEM EARNED INCOME CREDIT FOR THE FAKE KIDS, ONE OF THE GUYS GOT VACK OVER $9000 , HE ONLT PAID IN $1800 in taxes for the entire year. SO YOU MY FRIEND ARE FULL OF SHIT.

      12. True, they paid some taxes 2.5-12 billion dollars. But American taxpayers have paid 300 billion dollars annually in entitlements for illegals that are here. Not a good exchange and they keep having kids like they’re going out of style that we have to pay for so they can keep getting more money.

      13. Not so True that bs about them paying taxes is in the past. The types of illegals flooding our country are very different today. They may paid 2.5 billion in taxes but they cost 3.9 billion of OUR tax dollars. that untrue statement that them old democrats that live in 1950 are shoving this bs down your throats. if you lived where I do you WOULD agree. Stop listening to those old bleeding hearts that are so out of touch its almost unbelievable. and secondly our tech in this country changes by the day, a ex co worker of mine has a lot of family in the farming industry. in the last 2 years they have purchased machines that pick crops. Her family replaced hundreds of workers, the equipment is high tech and very affordable. Now they only need mechanics to fix and service the new equipment. CAN YOUR ILLEGALS DO THAT! the ones I come across never attended any school and cannot read or write in ANY LANGUAGE. They are more interested in have children then getting a job. STOP WITH THAT OLD LIE ABOUT THEM PAYING TAXES WE ARE WAY WAY WAY PAST THAT PHASE

    4. I agree with you 100%. INVADER MIGRANTS bring diseases: Tuberculosis, measeles, mumps, whooping cough, chagas disease and others. The men bring crime, drug dealing, and identity theft. They put their wives and children on every welfare program possible. The Democrats lay out this bait for the invaders and get their votes in exchange on election day. It costs taxpayers billions to buy the votes of illegal aliens. It is how Democrat Politicians win elections and stay in power.

    5. Gel Hair is corrupt beyond belief… Dishing out taxpayers monies to illegals who are sucking the welfare system dry and he pulls this stunt.. Non Profits is a term for Grifters, and illegal alien advocates. Sue the state and get an injunction t stop this insanity… Newsom has opened the jails and supports thugs over citizens. He has to be defeated next time or this fool will try to run for President and spread the political cancer called kalyfornia

      1. Nice John, Newsome and his ilk are the definition of “Political Cancer” He is a perfectly played pawn in his Aunt Nancy Pelosi’s game. She is as corrupt or more so than the Clinton’s. They are all in bed together working there very hardest to turn us into a communist regime for their own gain. Power and greed drive their machine. Trump threatens their plans every chance he gets. Thank goodness he keeps trying on our behalf.
        The sad part is our voting public (which, unfortunately, have no grasp of the U.S. Constitution or the Bill of Rights) are incredibly apathetic. This is all straight out of Saul Alinsky’s book (1971) “Rules for Radicals”
        Truth is the new Hate Speech!

    6. If our Nuisance lost, why did the winner remain quiet? Was he/she threatened by the obama/hillary hit parade? Why would we need to recall a con-job committing criminal fraud? I feel certain that the hillary murdered at least 70 people who filed legal actions against her. These left-leaning fascist Nazis will do anything they want with legal impunity, because they’re NEVER prosecuted, even for the mass murder of our four marines, when they gave the order, to their support during a fire fight, to STAND DOWEN! The victims made over a hundred phone calls to get support, but were IGNORED by hillary and that Black House resident: O’bummer, as they chatted with their subversive cronies and vocal traitors, on their phones.

    7. However you have no problem benefiting daily from these essential workers labor to supply you with food and other necessities to give you a privileged and selfish ass lifestyle. And please do not invoke Christianity while you’re at it. Hypocrites! The inhumane, cruel callousness from the Trumptard republiKKKan hater conservative base is evident. Let me remind you that these workers pay billions in taxes but get no benefits in return…. one day soon, these essential workers whom you despise will be your heroes when the food shortage starts giving you hunger pains!! and you call yourselves Pro-Life?? 😂😂🤣 you’re a joke!

      1. “These workers pay billions in taxes, but get no benefits”. Really…? Free medical, Welfare, Food stamps, school, school lunches, etc. they cost us far, far more than what little sales tax they may pay. Working under the table for less wages, but not paying State & Federal income taxes.

      2. Prim-rose; for 66 years I have seen documented and undocumented temporary farmworkers and others coming to work in USA and it is more prevalent today because our population has grown and the need so the need has grown as well for farmworkers/agricultural workers/ construction/restaurant workers/gardeners/ hotel workers (maids, cooks, gardeners, busboys, dish-washers ,etc.). Do NOT BLAME THESE WORKERS THAT ARE THE USA’S-YOUR UNDERGROUND SLAVES. Without them we will have shortages in animal farms; chickens, pigs, cattle, and many other areas like Slaughter houses. We need them out in open but with DOCUMENTS. Do not MALIGN them, malign government, business, industry, etc. that look the other way because they know undocumented are needed and would cause shortages. Thank the undocumented and have Business, Industry, etc. pay into unemployment., Social Security, health accounts, etc. that they have neglected to contribute and expect the average USA JOE and Jane to pick up tab.

      3. You are the joke you baby killing libturd, your useless party wants everyone sitting on that big ass collecting welfare so they own them,I’m pro life, you baby killing Dipshitocrat. Your idiot party has a man running for president who can’t remember his own f$&king name and you hypocritical POS wants to talk about Trump, we know you want Odumbo back to sit in the White House and do JACK SHIT, because that was his to do list for 8 years,he is even more useless than a blow hard idiot like you. Your dumbass party knows they can’t win, why the hell do you think they came up with this Coronavirus shit, face it, you morons lost in 2016 and your Dementia Democrao puppet will lose to Trump this year, and the way CRYPTKEEPER Nancy and UPCHUCK SHOEMAN have lied, cheated and shemed, the DUMBASSOCRAPS WILL BE LUCKY TO. EVER SEE ANOTHER DEMOCRAP PRESIDENT, LORD WILLING WE WONT.

      4. Do you live in California? I have for 46 years, never once seen or heard a kkk member. If they are so prevalent perhaps you will share all the times you have encountered kkk members In California . The only real one I know of is now deceased, democrat senator Robert Byrd who both Hillary and Biden call a mentor. He formed a kkk chapter in his hometown and served as its grand wizard. In his mid forties he called it a youthful mistake. Getting a ticket for drinking alcohol when you are 20 is a youthful mistake. Forming a kkk chapter and serving as it’s leader should make you a pariah but instead he is celebrated by democrats! Now which partY is full of racists oand kkk members?

    8. Stop spreading FAKE news! Just in LA county according to the New American Economy Report from 2014, foreign born residents provide $233 billion to the county’s GDP either majority or 95.5 billion from Hispanic/Latino immigrants and 81 billion from Asians immigrants. The US depends on immigrant labor and their economic contributions as tax payers and consumers . Please don’t choose to side with hate. There will be a food shortage soon and you will be begging these brown hands to pick and deliver food supply to your table when you start getting hunger pains.

    9. You are really ignorant. Not all undocumented immigrants are from Mexico. Educate yourself before you start showing your RACISM. California is a state of diversity and the mindset you have is extremely close-minded. I will pray for you.

    10. Because the majority of those ilegal immigrants are the ones that are picking up fruits and vegetables to be in your dinner table everyday! You are welcome!!! And illegal immigrants also pay taxes!!!! Please educate yourself! Nothing is free in this country! Ilegal immigrants have an ITIN number which is an alien number just like a SSN and they do not get any taxes refunded every tax year because they are not US Citizens but yet They have to pay taxes! Please you should read more about how the system works!

      1. ok I will give up my tax return for all the handouts they get. Food stamps, medical insurance and housing. Just to remind you your illegals in CA have FREE health insurance while my family cannot afford it. Do you see the picture? Its a whole new type of illegals coming here they are not here to work. Also I would GLADLY pay more for fruits & veggies so farmers can hire US CITIZENS at livable wages WHAT DO YOU HAVE NOW? I tell you you have nothing

    11. He won the election by 23.8%, per the official balloting box, 61.9% to 38.1% which is a wide margine. Where did you get your fake numbers from? Can you please at least try and look up official numbers from a website instead of a conspiracy theory site?

  2. Very glad to know that Harmeet Dhillon is taking action to put a stop to this outrage by Gavin Newsom (and his mystery non-profit friends). Will be following this!

    1. we already have enough petitions filed to recall that guber….but the sec of state and ca. ag have them blocked.

      1. bullsh– you sound like an uneducated idiot the illegal ALIENS get everything free the min they set foot on our soil they dont belong here and we dont want them and we especialy dont want our taxpayers dollars going to them

  3. Can they sue due to the fact children are being abused, parents literally are missing their kids, and cant find their kids trapped in abusive homes right now… There is no legal recourse available to help women and children being abused. EDD denies people money for no reason and then gives the NO WAY to appeal.

  4. Please read and share the hell out of this !

    Perfectly worded right here!

    I copied this from another page but it couldn’t be more dead on for EXACTLY how I feel. I have made my decision regarding MY small business and what I have to do to survive. Small business is the backbone of this country, always has been! Remember to support your local small businesses, shop and dine local! ♥️

    Dear Governor Gavin Newsom

    While I live in the same state as you I feel a world away. You asked us to help you, we did. You asked us to close our business, we did. You asked us to stay home, we did. You asked us to continue to stay at home, we are. So here I am, at home, waiting. You told us don’t worry unemployment will come, it hasn’t. You told us don’t worry grants are coming, they haven’t. You told us don’t worry forgivable loans are coming, they haven’t. You told us don’t worry stimulus money is coming, it hasn’t. So here I am, at home waiting. I wait alongside most of my fellow small business owners, those self-employed and independent contractors. A massive number of California residents who are waiting for the Unemployment portal to open for us, waiting for loan approvals, waiting for stimulus checks. All of these programs, we are at the back of the line for. So here we wait. While bills come daily, savings continuously dwindling and still doing our part. It is time you do yours. It is an inconceivable expectation to close unessential business halting all income and expect us to survive. We need to pay our bills and put food on the table. Without immediate action, you are leaving us no options. How are we to survive? We deserve an answer. Coming soon is no longer acceptable!!!

    Please join me in sending this message to Gavin Newsom

    •Great words from a fellow
    business owner.
    #gavinnewsom

    1. Did you know that undocumented migrant workers and hotel workers etc. pay into docial security. even though undocumented but that they can not get govt. benefits?

      1. There is such an easy cure for that: Come to the United States legally. The immigrants need to stop listening to the Dems who promise to “take care” of them. The Dems have created such rivalry and resentment towards the illegal immigrants. It’s not fair that all this resentment and disgust is aimed at the illegals when it really should be directed at the Dems who have created this mess. You would not treat your step-child better than your own, nor would you treat your own better than you step-child. Treat them equally. Same laws, same rules, same benefits.

      2. Social security does not fund unemployment benefits.

        That is the price they pay entering illegally instead of following the rules like the millions who enter legally. Ask all the foreign engineers in the silicon valley.

        Go back, file the required documents, pay the fees and wait to be processed for a green card to work legally.

      3. Undocumented is the key word so with that said they do not deserve anything because they are in out country illegally !

    2. Beautifully said!
      I am as well a small business owner and going through the exact thing.
      Waiting……

It is an inconceivable expectation to close unessential business halting all income and expect us to survive. We need to pay our bills and put food on the table. Without immediate action, you are leaving us no options. How are we to survive? We deserve an answer. Coming soon is no longer acceptable!!! I will lose my Buisness and my house. Please help.

    Please join me in sending this message to Gavin Newsom

  6. Please read and share the hell out of this !

    Perfectly worded right here!

    I copied this from another page but it couldn’t be more dead on for EXACTLY how I feel. I have made my decision regarding MY small business and what I have to do to survive. Small business is the backbone of this country, always has been! Remember to support your local small businesses, shop and dine local! ♥️

    Dear Governor Gavin Newsom

    While I live in the same state as you I feel a world away. You asked us to help you, we did. You asked us to close our business, we did. You asked us to stay home, we did. You asked us to continue to stay at home, we are. So here I am, at home, waiting. You told us don’t worry unemployment will come, it hasn’t. You told us don’t worry grants are coming, they haven’t. You told us don’t worry forgivable loans are coming, they haven’t. You told us don’t worry stimulus money is coming, it hasn’t. So here I am, at home waiting. I wait alongside most of my fellow small business owners, those self-employed and independent contractors. A massive number of California residents who are waiting for the Unemployment portal to open for us, waiting for loan approvals, waiting for stimulus checks. All of these programs, we are at the back of the line for. So here we wait. While bills come daily, savings continuously dwindling and still doing our part. It is time you do yours. It is an inconceivable expectation to close unessential business halting all income and expect us to survive. We need to pay our bills and put food on the table. Without immediate action, you are leaving us no options. How are we to survive? We deserve an answer. Coming soon is no longer acceptable!!! I will lose my Buisness and my house. Please help.

  7. So glad to see legal action is being taken. At least a ray of conservative light. Please keep it up. Our governor should be recalled.

  8. Democrat Party elected in BLUE States, Counties and Cities will do anything and everything to take care of its ILLEGAL ALIEN VOTING BASE in giving away taxpayer funds to Illegal Aliens for a Democrat Party vote come election day!

  9. I sure hope that this will stop the madness. I understand that some of the illegal aliens have ITIN numbers. There are also many who do not have the ITIN I also understand that they have lost their jobs also. However it is NOT the California American Citizens problem. The UNDOCUMENTED are here ILLEGALLY. They should not be awarded for breaking the law. The knew the risk when entered illegally. I do know that the undocumented aliens up to age 25 are able to receive Medi-Cal full scope. if it was up to the governor and his democratic liberal party they would be giving everything to the illegals!!

  10. Can you address the fact that Governor keeps ignoring EDD Holding payments due to “penalty weeks”. We are struggling, it’s been since March, people are starving, losing their homes, In 1990, the Legislature amended Government Code Section 8571 to provide:

    “Suspension of statutes, rules and regulations. During a state of war emergency or a state of emergency the Governor may suspend any regulatory statute, or statute prescribing the procedure for conduct of state business, or the orders, rules, or regulations of any state agency, including subdivision (d) of Section 1253 of the Unemployment Insurance Code, where the Governor determines and declares that strict compliance with any statute, order, rule, or regulation would in any way prevent, hinder, or delay the mitigation of the effects of the emergency.”

  11. I would like to have some light shed on these “Non-profits”. What are their ties to Governor Newsome and the Democratic party.

    It appears there is a lot of money to be made in a “Non-profit ” nowadays ….

  12. Maybe I misunderstood, but I was led to believe that the $75 million was donated. People can donate to whomever they want. But now it turns out that the donations are coming from public funds. Really! Isn’t it the general media’s job to examine everything that the politicians say. Thank you Katy Grimes for posting this story. Unfortunately, it doesn’t better my opinion about California’s leadership.

    1. Yes I read that also. now the idiot newson is begging for more federal funds. Trump should NOT give him a dime.

  13. i have told countless people this : if u vote by mail in ballot, YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT ONLY ! under calif voting system, calif is a TWO PARTY STATE ONLY ! REP, OR DEM. if u mail in ur ballot, and u r registered as anything than the above (independent, libertarian, whatever party) ur vote AUTOMATICALLY i’ll say again, AUTOMATICALLY goes to the democrat, !!! pls pls pls check ur status on sec state website, and change accordingly. how do u think one who lost 60% of the state won the governor. u can still be a member of those above secondary parties. for ur vote to count in calif. u must be registered as a republican or democrat on ur mail n ballot for it to go to ur CANDIDATE OF UR CHOICE !!!!

  14. I support the majority comments. First Gavin Newsome ran SF into the ground n.v d with the homeless population, now he is doing the same in the Sacramento area. He obviously doesn’t care how the American people feel ir what they want, giving the illegal immigrants unemployment benefits is yet again raping the american people of their hard EARNED benefits. What part of illegal does he not understand !!! They come here without proper documentation, the women collect welfare, the men work under the table (without paying taxes) they trash our streets, they refuse to learn our language and want to turn our country into their sh_h__le. Frankly, I will not and do not give Gavin Newsome the right to use my hard earned money to support anyone that does not abide by US Laws.

  15. Gavin Newsome is absolutely the WORST Govenor we have ever had! Remember the Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with aunt Nancy Pelosi (A drunk living in an ivory tower) I say let her and her nephew Gavin Newsome pay for the illegals with their own money, NOT MINE.

  16. Newsome and Pelosi is one criminal family and they stealing money everywhere they possibly can. Pelosi, her son the her entire family became multi millionaires by laundering money through Ukraine and China. Newsome disided to make money through seemingly good gesture by “giving” money to illegals through a non-profit organization because nobody would ever be able to verify where did money go. How can you check illegals whether they received money or not??? Excellent ways to steal money without any problems!!! Thanks God he was caught on time!!! Thank you, Center for American Liberty’s lawsuit, in coordination with The Dhillon Law Group. God bless you!

  17. They are here illegally until they apply and get citizenship. We the taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay the bill for them. Governor Newsom is crazy. Not only is he f-ing up with this but he’s also screwing people over about opening up the state again so the legal citizens can go back to work. He acts like he is the almighty which he isn’t. Bottom line, he’s out of line and not following the state constitution he should be out of office.

  18. Governor Newsom is wrongfully using our tax money to support illegals. They didn’t get citizenship they shouldn’t get tax payers money. When they want to go through the correct channels and become citizens is the only time they should receive anything. I don’t know why Governor Newsom hasn’t been recalled. He treats illegals better than us citizens. Our citizens want to get back to work and have our state reopen so they can, but Governor Newsom is even screwing with that. He thinks he’s the almighty but he isn’t. Our unemployed citizens due to the lockdown deserve their money not illegals. Governor Newsom doesn’t care about the legal citizens of this state. He thinks he can just throw money from the legal citizens taxes around like it’s his. He’s breaking so many laws of this state’s constitution. Illegals get freed health care and now this. ???

  19. So the last time I checked California is a BLUE and progressive state (thank the good Lord) so if you’re a republican conservative racist or hater, go to the red states with the trumptard base. You’ll fit right in. Bye Felicia!

  20. Gagem Newsom has to go. Hes doing this after begging for med supplies he had previously left off his corruption list. He took 750m from Californias road repair acct and spent it on his own pet project. Now he will increase our tax rates to support illegal ALIENS while we cant get funded for UIB. I’m self employed and havent bothered with filing. I’m sick of Pelosi grandstanding. California may be a 2 party state, but we have too many of those blue corruption perverts running the state. If you are unhappy with the lopsided and tilted condition, start supporting another party to even it out! More ppl are leaving for better places and allowing the non tax paying illegals to move in unquestioned. There are lots of good in the so called red party, just take a look and make better choices. Need to remove gagem, Becerra, the commie in San Francisco, the idiot in L.A and schiff!

  21. What do you expect from Pelosi and Mafia crime family. I don’t want my hard earned money thrown to people who cannot even take the effort to become citizens

  22. Next time when you seat at your table take notice that the produce and many other things you enjoy come from the hard labor of those you HATE so much.

    These people pay taxes and most if not all had to leave their country and families behind in order to be able to put food on their table, avoid governmental persecution or violence from criminals.

    If you fee that they are taking a job away from you or your kids, I invite you all to come out and work with them.

    I pray that none of you are never faced with a decision to go to a place that you are hated by the same people who enjoy the benefits of your hard labor.

    1. The majority of US citizens would GLADLY pay more for produce to stop illegals. Stop with that nonsense the democrats are feeding you. I work a minimum wage job and I would pay more for produce in a heart beat. the farming industry is changing over to machines to harvest crops. I have seen them at my coworkers family farms. now what are these illegal, uneducated people do now? you don’t have a answer for that do you

  23. Unfortunately this is not a way Gavin Newsom will be helping anyone.
    This is a scandalous way for him to syphon money. These are undocumented people. Many loopholes. And he is leaving a lot of room for others to syphon money as well. Very irresponsible and questionable behavior. Instead of coming up with a policy to make these individuals legal citizens and make their lives easier.

  24. Can someone please site the specific state and federal laws/codes/regulations that Newsom has violated? There isn’t any information on the Center for Liberty website and no way to ask there. This information would be very helpful when addressing the skeptical Left. Thanks

  25. HOPE the AMERICAN people understand ALL of our GOVERMENT is above the law. WHY ? JUGDES are in bed and paid off by them. WAKE up America it is past time WE the people PAY these ASSHOLES to steal and rob us. I would say vote them out but as we all know how corrupt that system is.THERE is a way out not pretty but ANYBODY that been in the military can explain it.

  26. thsts bullshit i m a veteran and im still waiting to get threw to that edd ive been waiting since march 18th fuk that they want unemployment have their taco ass in the miltary so they dont take from us

  27. This is why California will go broke!!!! Newson giving away money like water and the people of California will pay…

  28. If people want to come to this country, they need to go into the army first and prove themselves. Who agrees with me????

    1. and additionally, isn’t California already broke, look at their homeless streets filled with homelessness, HELP we need a miracle and a very strong leader, so VOTE Trump again, he is strong, got prayer behind him and he could care less what people think, He can get the job done if most will just listen and get behind him

      1. Ignorant comment…if u really knew the corruption, lies, and focus on his legacy, u would change your mind IF YOU REALLY CARED AND WANTED TO KNOW THE TRUTH…Most Trump supporters don’t and thats why they listen to fox. Please I ask as a fellow GOP, read and educate…

  29. Amazing! The HATE in this country has risen ridiculously in the last 3 yrs that I find it hard to see the U.S. as an example for anyone to follow. Immigration here needs to be fixed without a doubt…not good when controls are useless…but not a “liberal” as many of u people with little respect or human values have said…POTUS ould have fixed it in his 1st 2 yrs as he had control of Congress and do nothing about it…also, sick of u who say Americans would do that work of many immigrants/illegals
    ..study after study have confirmed that Americans would only fill 30% of all jobs needed to keep the agricultural sector rolling. Fix the root problem and don’t blame the players. It is easy to “shit” on others without walking in their shoes…I am an Amerucan, Veteran, and Repub with the pleasure of serving 20+ yrs and going to 42 countries…walk in their shoes and their love to find a better way for their family…very few who come here have bad intentions…instead of looking down from ur priviledged seat…FIX THE PROBLEM AND GET MCCONNELL AND MCCARTHY OFF THEIR ASSES AND WORK WITH DEMS TO AGAIN FIX THE ROOT PROBLEM…Giving money to build a wall is npt the solution, have 100s of tunnels, holes in new fences, and mobile ladders that have beat my tax money to only make my party feel good, and we hear and see how the “nice and shiny” fences are great…work with CBP daily and they say waste of money…FIX THE PROBLEM!!!

  30. Newscum, “Well we have millions here illegally that broke our nation’s federal immigration law so what does it matter if we break our state Constitution and rob law abiding citizen taxpayers to redistribute their money to those illegals. If citizen’s children have to go without, I’m fully prepared to make them do it. There’s a whole world of illegals out there and dammit, I’m leftard Gubner Newscum and can do whatever I want to give them citizen’s money which these people who have no right to be here, have no right too whatsoever.”
