California Gov. Gavin Newsom Wants Taxpayers to Spend $16.7M on 'Cash Assistance' for Afghans


California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), currently facing a recall election on September 14, wants the state’s taxpayers to spend $16.7 million on “cash assistance” and “other services” for Afghans who are resettled in California as part of President Joe Biden’s massive resettlement operation.

In a statement, Newsom and Democrats in the state legislature asked that about $16.7 million in taxpayer money be redirected to aid Afghans resettled in California by the Biden administration.

“The Governor, with support from legislative leaders, is requesting $16.7 million in general funds, which will be used to provide cash assistance and other services for newly arriving Afghans in the state,” a press release from Newsom’s office reads.

“Today’s announcements and request for funding signal that California stands ready to assist those in need,” Newsom said in a statement. “As the nation’s most diverse state, we don’t simply tolerate diversity, we celebrate it.”
