California is preparing a program that will provide a $500 stimulus to approximately 150,000 illegal immigrants residing in the state.
Governor Gavin Newsom announced the program in a Wednesday press release. The disaster relief package appropriates $75 million total for illegal immigrants in California, with a cap of $1000 per household. The governor is rationalizing the program by pointing out only legal residents and citizens of the United States can receive $1,200 checks through the CARES Act, the stimulus program passed to ameliorate the recession stemming from the coronavirus epidemic.
Newsom’s press release states that “philanthropic partners have committed to raising an additional $50 million.”
California is estimated to have an illegal immigrant population of at least 3 million, meaning that not all the illegals in the state stand to receive $500 from the state government. It looks as if the state is planning on sending checks to workers who lost their jobs as a result of the coronavirus epidemic. The payments will be made available through an application program.
Citizens don’t stand to benefit from California’s disaster relief program, which is exclusively intended for the benefit of illegal immigrants.
Laurene Powell Jobs, Founder and President of Emerson Collective(an organization described as a major private funder of the illegal immigrant stimulus package) blasted the federal government for choosing to reserve direct-to individuals benefits of the first stimulus package to U.S. citizens and legal residents.
“With the federal government and so many states failing to provide undocumented immigrants the economic and health supports all Americans deserve, I hope that corporations, foundations and individuals across the country will join us in providing the emergency relief these members of our community need to weather this challenging time.”
Many California citizens won’t forget that their state government appears to be placing them on the back burner, making illegal immigrants the priority instead.
WTH: Arizona Border Patrol Agent Arrested, Charged With Drug Trafficking
He was allegedly working with the drug smugglers.
A Customs and Border Patrol agent was arrested and federally charged with multiple counts of drug trafficking, conspiracy and distribution of controlled substances.
A Department of Justice charging document alleges that Carlos Victor Passapera Pinott, 53, of Buckeye, Arizona, transported two duffel bags containing heroin and fentanyl from the US-Mexico border to Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, where the drugs were handed off to another criminal operative.
Passapera is a Border Patrol agent assigned to the Tucson sector. The charging document details his alleged activities.
“On August 9, 2020, at approximately 3:15 AM, Passapera left his residence and drove south to a remote area of the border west of the Lukeville Port of Entry. Passapera then drove to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, where he loaded two duffel bags into another vehicle. Law enforcement agents stopped the driver of that vehicle after it left the airport, and searched the duffel bags.
The bags contained multiple packages of substances that field tested positive for the characteristics of cocaine (21 kilograms), heroin (1 kilogram), and fentanyl (1 kilogram). The bags also contained approximately 350,000 pills. A sample from the pills field tested positive for the characteristics of fentanyl.”
Law enforcement took Passapera into custody on Sunday, and seized $329,000 from his residence and $40,000 from his vehicle.
Passapera, who is facing multiple drug trafficking charges, could face a maximum penalty of life in prison. Federal prosecutors conceivably won’t take kindly to a federal agent engaging in what is a de facto betrayal of the United States, using a position of power to advance the goals of those who seem to be affiliated with criminal drug cartel and trafficking organizations.
