California Gavin Newsom ended the debacle of the high-speed train between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

However, the millions of dollars in savings will not be going back to California’s taxpayers. Instead, the governor plans to spend millions of dollars on making the illegal immigrants storming our borders more comfortable when they arrive.

Gov. Gavin Newsom and local officials in San Diego on Thursday touted a proposed $25 million in state funding to address a growing humanitarian crisis involving migrant families seeking asylum in the U.S. and blamed the Trump administration for manufacturing a problem at the border.

With prodding from San Diego lawmakers, Newsom has called for spending $20 million over three years to aid local nonprofits and community organizations that provide services to asylum-seeking migrant families. The funds would be available starting in the state fiscal year that begins in July.

The governor has also asked the Legislature for another $5 million in immediate funding, which lawmakers plan to approve in the coming weeks.

“Unfortunately, [for] the current administration, this is self-induced,” Newsom said of border conditions at a news conference in San Diego. “It’s a policy they advanced in October that [has] made the conditions not only worse here in California but [has] been highlighted in places like El Paso and elsewhere where they are having exactly the same kind of challenges.”

The California Senate gave a thumbs up to spending the $5 million for aid to illegal immigrants.

Intriguingly, the Golden State politico has made a massive Facebook ad buy in a number of swing states.

The newly sworn-in governor of California, Gavin Newsom (D-CA), ran Facebook ads in Ohio, Florida, and other swing states from January 12 to 16 that were focused on list building, according to the progressive digital firm ACRONYM.

“And the big find from this week: Newly-elected California Governor @GavinNewsom was running hundreds of list-building ads in Ohio, Florida, and other swing states from Jan 12-16,” the ACRONYM Twitter account tweeted on Friday.

If he is exploring a run doe the American presidency, he needs to make more moves such as ending the bullet train to nowhere. On the other hand, if he is looking to be the first president of North Mexico, then this is a great move.

Ultimately, Newsom may find that many of his California taxpayers will be relocating before they are forced to seek asylum from a redder and more fiscally sensible state.
