Apparently a bunch of conservatives lost their minds in regards to Gov. Gavin Newsom offering undocumented workers stimulus checks so they decided to rage on Twitter. Unfortunately for them the party didn’t last long. The trend was hijacked by people with actual facts and knowledge which is the kryptonite of any Trump lover:
I live in California and proud that my tax dollars will be supporting one of the most vulnerable groups of people in our state, undocumented laborers. California produces 40% of our nations produce with 70% undocumented workforce. It’s the right thing to do. #RecallGavinNewsom pic.twitter.com/xgWbCs4yT3

Oh, I #RecallGavinNewsom. He's that guy who has an 83% approval rating for his handling of the coronavirus crisis in the state that has only seen 758 deaths in total when New York State is seeing that in one day.
I recall him. Love him. @GavinNewsom https://t.co/uaXPV3YuRi

Hi, if you know anyone complaining that California should #RecallGavinNewsom because undocumented residents "don't pay taxes etc" gently remind them that 50-75% of undocumenteds pay taxes using an ITIN, including soc sec even tho they'll never get it https://t.co/fHHQbwoIXP

#RecallGavinNewsom You don't have to remind me to recall Gavin Newsom. I recall him very well. He's that smart and handsome governor who kept the California death toll much lower than expected.

For those tweeting #RecallGavinNewsom over the $125M fund to give stimulus checks to undocumented immigrants, remember this: Your health could well depend on theirs.

As a resident of CA I thank Mr. Newsom everyday. His levelheaded and realistic approach to the coronavirus pandemic is the polar opposite of Trump’s who can’t go very long without embarrassing himself, bigly. If Gov. Newsom was in charge of the nation during this troubling time we would surely be in a better place right now.
