California leaders plan to spend $30 million on DACA recipients

California leaders plan to spend $30 million on DACA recipients

Budget priorities in the Twilight Zone!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtikOmKT1kI

It’s another glorious day in the Twilight Zone state in which I live.

Earlier this year, California nearly had a major catastrophe when it was feared the Oroville Dam would breach. More recently, our major cities have had to power-wash streets with disinfectant in an effort to stem infectious disease outbreaks that occur via fecal matter transmission.

But instead of focusing funds on needed infrastructure repairs or public health projects, Sacramento had decided to spend millions of dollars on illegal immigrants.

Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative leaders announced a plan Tuesday to set aside $30 million to help immigrants affected by President Trump’s decision to rescind a program that shields thousands of them from deportation.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program allows immigrants who came to the United States as children to apply for temporary protections from deportation and to receive work permits.

The plan is expected to be discussed by a legislative committee on Tuesday night. It would set aside $20 million for immigration legal services and send $10 million to public colleges and universities to provide financial aid to DACA students, also known as “Dreamers.” Of the $10 million, $7 million would go to community colleges, $2 million to California State University and $1 million to the University of California.

California State Senate Leader Kevin de Leon was particularly thrilled at the proposal, directing his ire at President Donald Trump in his statement:

“We will not let one man with xenophobic tendencies undercut years of progress we have made in California to integrate these young adults into our society and economy,” state Senator President pro Tempore Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, said in a statement. “California is their home and they are our future.”

Meanwhile, the investigation of the Oroville Dam fracture has led to some disturbing conclusions about the other dams in this state:

A team of independent experts charged Tuesday that the state and federal officials who inspected Oroville Dam relied too heavily on visual inspections, ignoring blueprints, construction records and other documented clues that could have warned them about the dam’s troubled flood-control spillway long before it fractured in February. The fracture led to near-catastrophe and the evacuation of thousands of residents.

The team of forensic investigators, commissioned by the state Department of Water Resources to study the cause of the February crisis, said similar problems could be lurking at other dams in California and around the country because of an over-reliance on visual inspections.

So, we don’t have enough professional and funds for vital infrastructure inspections, but our state can direct millions of dollars so that 20-year olds who are not even citizens can attend Trump-hating educational institutions.

Priorities!

Needless to say, not every California is a member of de Leon’s #Resist army.

For the most part, the comments about this measure are predominately negative because just about everyone thinks there are better uses for this money.

Additionally, California is overdue for a major earthquake along a particularly active fault. As the recent spate of hurricanes show, a natural disaster can hit any state’s budget hard.

But, in the Twilight Zone, budget priorities are directed at manufacturing legislative weapons to use against our President.

It’s always someone else’s money anyway!!

Maybe if we started calling unborn babies illegal fetuses the Democrats would starting helping them.

Lies of deception, omission, and commission. Obama’s trail of tears, and CAIR, forced by global man-made social justice adventures, were processed with the same emotional appeal and journolistic cover-up.

That said, there needs to be emigration reform. It is not normal for over one million people annually to emigrate from their homelands.

Oh, and progressive liberals, progressive and reformed organizations, advocates for color diversity (i.e. racism) and selective-child (a.k.a. pro-choice), have an irreconcilable conflict of interest. Their empathy is not motivated by a belief in human and civil rights, but look to refugee crises, excessive immigration, and illegal immigration, for financial and democratic returns in collusion with foreign and domestic special interests, at the expense of American, and foreign children, emigrated and left behind.

#HereToStay sounds like an affirmative action program that discriminates between individuals based on the “color of their skin” (i.e. progressive diversity), and prospective immigrants denied an opportunity by illegal aliens and their advocates.

“HereToStay” is Donald Duck’s TRUE position on DREAMERS.

You were warned…

    since you have no love for the USA and MAGA, why don’t you find a better place, more suited to your druthers.

      Rags has been posting here since Trump was a Democrat. If you seek to hear only those opinions you agree with, the solution is that *you* leave, not all those of us with opinions with which you don’t agree.

      How is pointing out an obvious and objective FACT NOT loving the USA?

      Der Donald has said what I depicted his position being.

      Don’t you believe him…???

Importing Mexicans is how CA became a one-party state, so of course Democrats there are going to support DACA.

When Kalee4nyah will need fed assistance they will gladly kiss the ring (or other parts) of DJT.
meanwhile, who is paying the retirement and med bills for these interlopers /i mean the representatives who only represent themselves/.

Google and FB and the SanFranNan crowd need to be taxed at 99%.
why would they complain ?

Look on the bright side, Californians. Other than being $20 billion in debt, California has oodles of money to throw at illegal aliens.

Why spend money helping actual citizens when you can piss it away on illegal aliens?

What a perverse system that rewards lawbreakers and relegates citizens to 2nd (3rd, 4th, …) class status.

    “Why spend money helping actual citizens when you can piss it away on illegal aliens?”

    Because in California there is no longer any difference between the two.

    Also, spending on needed infrastructure is boring and doesn’t buy you any votes. We all know what virtue signaling is. California has invented virtue spending.

$30 million is nothing. They spend that much on them and their “anchor families” easily every few months. What I find amusing is the sign in the picture saying “future engineer”. Engineering is based on facts and math, both of which are racist, sexist, Patriarchal bourgeois constructs that have no place in California.

CA can put them on the 64-billion dollar train to nowhere:

Construction began in 2015. Completion of the first leg from was expected in 2019. A federal report estimates completion in 2024.

Don’t the illegal aliens … oops, I mean “dreamers” … have schools in their own countries?

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!…..
