California Legislators Use DACA as an Excuse to Waste $30 Million

California is no stranger to wasteful government spending. As state debts push past $1.3 trillion, the last thing policy makers should be worried about spending more money.

Alas, the taxpayer once again pays the price as legislators approve another $30 million in spending to assist illegal immigrants that were granted temporary stays of removal via Obama's DACA program.

From SFGate:

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 Wednesday. 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.

There is seemingly no end to wasteful spending in California. Each year, illegal immigrants in the blue state cost tax-payers $30.3 billion — nearly 18% of the state's annual budget. Despite the insane cash flow, California remains the nation's poorest state.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
