Gavin Newsom announces help for gig workers, undocumented immigrants affected by coronavirus

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced at a press conference on Apr. 15, 2020 that the state will offer help for gig workers who have lost work due to COVID-19 and a program aimed at helping undocumented immigrants affected by the coronavirus. By California Governor

Gov. Gavin Newsom last week unveiled a budget proposal that if passed would dole out billions of dollars in aid to taxpayers affected by the coronavirus pandemic, sometimes in the form of direct cash payments.

Anti-poverty advocates are calling that great news for the working poor, but some are asking him to steer more money directly to undocumented Californians who don’t qualify for federal financial assistance.

Those households, they say, were largely neglected by the two rounds of federal stimulus payments Congress sent to taxpayers over the past year.

Christopher Sanchez, a policy advocate at the Western Center on Law & Poverty, said the COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated inequities for California’s undocumented communities, many whom live paycheck-to-paycheck and lost jobs at unequal rates during the pandemic-induced recession.

“The governor’s proposal is absolutely a great step in the right direction for undocumented families,” Sanchez said. “However, we know that there are going to be individuals who are left out.”
