Sacramento Bee: When the new Legislature is sworn in on Monday, Sen. Ricardo Lara says he plans to introduce legislation that would create an Office of New Americans to help undocumented immigrants illegal aliens by connecting them to legal services, English classes and help applying for relief under the executive actions announced last week by President Barack Obama.
Obama’s plan is expected to affect at least 1.5 million undocumented immigrants illegal aliens in California, and many have questions about how to file paperwork to be considered for relief, said a statement from Lara, a Bell Gardens Democrat who chairs the Legislature’s Latino Caucus.
“The success of a large-scale legalization program will depend significantly upon the coordination of multi-agency, multi-sector, statewide public and private effort to provide undocumented immigrants illegal aliens accurate, accessible information and services,” said the announcement from Lara’s office.
“The California Office of New Americans aims to be that hub, developing a coordinated effort that leverages resources to provide education, fraud prevention services, application assistance, legal services, English instruction and civics classes to undocumented immigrants illegal aliens.”
The office would also help undocumented immigrants illegal aliens apply for driver’s licenses, which became legal in California under a bill signed last year. Lara’s statement said he hopes the new effort will help immigrants who came to the country without permission “better integrate into the economic, social and political fabric of our state.”
A spokesman for Lara said the cost of the proposal was unknown because the measure has not yet been analyzed by legislative staff.
Obama’s plan includes suspending deportation for undocumented parents of children who are American citizens or have been legal permanent residents for at least five years. It would also expand the pool of people eligible for work permits and deportation deferrals under an earlier program that offered protection to immigrants who entered the country illegally as children.
California has more undocumented immigrants illegal aliens than any other state and has been expanding the privileges those residents can enjoy. In addition to the bill granting undocumented immigrants illegal aliens driver’s licenses, the California Legislature in 2013 also passed bills to allow them to practice law, protect them from labor retaliation and bar jails from holding nonviolent immigration detainees for federal officials. An effort to provide government-subsidized health care to undocumented immigrants illegal aliens failed in 2014 but is likely to be reintroduced in the coming year.
Guarantee you this new “Office of New Americans” will help illegals register to vote!

  1. Is this guy too ignorant to see the hypocrisy of this statement;
    ““The California Office of New Americans aims to be that hub, developing a coordinated effort that leverages resources to provide education, fraud prevention services, application assistance, legal services”
    I find it ironic that those that have committed fraud against the American taxpayers will now receive a special office that will make sure no fraud is committed against them when it comes to their illegally gained benefits. Boy are we in trouble as a country or what!!!

  3. It’s just WRONG that these illegal immigrants who only want sneak into America to work and raise their kids,reach for the American Dream,start a NEW LIFE,actually START their NEW LIFE by becoming Felons,and even WORSE,the alleged president REWARDS them for it. That said,if there’s to be a new office (which we REALLY need-MORE GOVERNMENT) it should be for arresting and prosecuting all the illegal aliens who actually don’t even bother to “sneak” across anymore-“What can they do,send us back? Big deal-we’ll be back the next day…”
