On Wednesday, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a massive cash payout for illegal immigrants in California that would consist of a “public-private partnership.”
The gross total of the illegal alien stimulus will amount to $125 million, of which $70 million will be paid for by taxpayers who are legal United States residents.
The other $50 million will consist of private funds from various pro-mass migration special interests, under the banner of the “California Immigrant Resilience Fund.”
Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), a collective of pro-immigration special interests, has committed to raising the $50 million for the “Immigrant Resilience Fund,” and claims to have already received over $6 million in seed investments from “Emerson Collective and Blue Shield of California Foundation, other supporters include The California Endowment, The James Irvine Foundation, Open Society Foundations, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, California Wellness Foundation, Sunlight Giving, the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, the Marin Community Foundation, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and the Akonadi Foundation.”
Statements from representatives of most of the special interests involved in the fund are included on the GCIR website, but not from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is an LLC that was founded in December 2015 by Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and his wife Priscilla Chan.
A statement on the official website for the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative describes the LLC’s position on mass immigration as follows:
We believe in an America where everyone can reach their full potential. That’s why we support comprehensive immigration reform that keeps families and communities together, drives economic growth for all, and includes a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants without status who call our country home.
Mark Zuckerberg has not publicly announced any contributions on his part to relief funds for American citizens beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic.
