You might notice that we changed the words “state funds” in the Los Angeles Times’ tweet to “taxpayer money,” because as probably even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows, the government doesn’t create wealth. The state has no fund without the taxpayers, and taxpaying citizens seem to be way down on the list of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s priorities.
Gov. Gavin Newsom wants to use state funds to help migrant families arriving at the California border. https://t.co/NIK4M1wmUr

The LA Times has the story behind a paywall, so we’re not sure if “migrant families” is strictly limited to families, but they did put a nice photo of a baby in their tweet.
We’re not trying to tell California how to spend its citizens’ money, but we do find it ironic that on the front page of the LA Times Tuesday is the story, “For 2019 homeless count, thousands of volunteers are set to deploy across L.A.” Are they trying to tell us Los Angeles has a homeless problem?
You mean illegal aliens right ? Sounds like harboring, aiding and abetting to me. All crimes

California is legally a sanctuary state, so it’s cool.
He said what? wait I thought #California didn't have the money to pay their teachers fair wages, but now he have money to pay for #Immigrants programs, and what about Americans and veterans homeless #teacherstrike #teacher

Pay our teachers better, provide better housing options for the homeless and veterans before thinking about migration issues.

What about California Senior Veterans?

How about helping out the people already in California, like the homeless?

And the starving and homeless legit Californians get left behind again. Nice.

Did we secure housing for the homeless yet?

How about we use it to help the homeless here first
— Timbo (@Timbo64957261) January 22, 2019
Fix the homeless problem first. Citizens first.

Could we use this money for homeless US citizens? There are so many and they are our first obligation.
— Matt (@astromattj) January 22, 2019
I sure hope he does the same for American citizen families living in California before illegals.

Another liberal/socialist putting illegal aliens in front of American citizens. Not my governor. #Impeach

OK. And now about that poop on the streets?
— Chris Tsotsoros (@ctsotsoros) January 22, 2019
Because there aren't any poor homeless citizens?
— Hypocrisy Detector (@beauxtx1) January 22, 2019
Apparently they need thousands of volunteers just to count the homeless in Los Angeles alone.
Good, everything working great in this state with the highest percentage of poor and near poor people, we can spare the cash.
— Lex Jurgen (@MyTerribleWords) January 22, 2019
Why not? We have unlimited resources.

Super. If we have so much flush cash, let's drop taxes so all can enjoy the state's progress. Then, we can take care of our kids and families. First.
— steven c shepard (@scshepard) January 22, 2019
The state is broke. So spend money you don’t have to help illegals. And Phuck Americans. What a democrat.
— Dr Spank Dawg (@spank_dr) January 22, 2019
Globalism at it's best. It's working great in France! Thanks for not putting us working class citizens first @GavinNewsom! California is falling apart and you want to bring more immigrants here for us to be taxed the hell out of. Great job! 👌🏾

If the state has that much money how about a tax cut Gov. Nonsense
— NicaPlaga (@LeonBz) January 22, 2019
I hope he keeps raising California state taxes until Californians come to their senses.
— DS (@mulecanter) January 22, 2019
He will; we’re not sure they will.
This is fine, as long as there are no FEDERAL funds used by way of subsides.

I would move out of state for a better life!

How many illegals can fit @kathygriffin 13,377 sq ft $10 mil mansion in the gated community of Bel Air ? The rich people of Los Angeles prize privacy and security. Unlike everyone, they can live in guarded, gated communities #BuildTheWallNow #KAGA #AmericansFirst

We have to ask: How’s that $77 billion high-speed rail project coming along?
