California is Broke – So it’s Giving Illegals Unemployment

Although the state is broke, a new California bill would provide unemployment benefits to illegal immigrants.

As the Golden State braces for an influx of illegals following Title 42’s expiration, SB 227, or the Safety Net for All Workers Act, would provide laid-off illegal immigrants $300 per week for up to 20 weeks with funds from state coffers.

The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors unanimously adopted a resolution supporting the statewide bill, and Board Supervisor Shamann Walton stated,

“We cannot take people’s money, take people’s taxes, take people’s labor, and then deny them the very benefits and rights that they deserve and that they have earned.”

Newsom Gives Illegals Unemployment

According to the Safety Net for All Coalition, Payroll taxes on illegal immigrants contribute $485 million a year to the state’s Unemployment Insurance system, and the proposed legislation is estimated to cost $356 million in state funds.

“Every day, undocumented immigrants contribute to California’s economic prosperity in agriculture, construction, clothing, and other industries,” said the bill’s sponsor, state Sen. María Elena Durazo. “Yet immigrants continue to be shut out from California’s economic success due to unjust exclusions from the safety net.”

On Thursday, the Senate Appropriations Committee will review proposed legislation, including SB 227, and either forward a bill to the floor or bench it.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom vetoed a similar bill that passed the legislature last year, saying “the bill needs further work to address operational issues and fiscal concerns.”

But California this year is experiencing significant financial strain. Newsom announced Friday that the state’s budget deficit grew to nearly $32 billion, about $10 billion more than anticipated.

“This was not an easy budget, but I hope you see we will try to do our best to hold the line and take care of the most vulnerable and needy but still maintain prudence,” Newsom said.

Just south of San Diego, roughly 15,000 migrants had gathered in Tijuana last week, filling hotels and shelters or sleeping outside in a makeshift camp while waiting for Title 42 to expire in the hopes of making it into the Golden State, The New York Times reported.
