Months after spending $900,000 to supply immigrants and their families with “targeted services and resources,” the mayor of Washington DC is giving an open borders group $100,000 to provide English classes, legal consultants and workshops to help them become American citizens. The mayor, Muriel Bowser, proudly announced this month that the taxpayer allocation “represents the largest such government fund in the nation.” The money will help pay for projects that collaborate with employers to assist immigrant workers with the citizenship process by also hosting seminars, and individual legal consults. “Together, we’re giving more immigrants in our community a fair shot at citizenship,” Mayor Bowser said, bragging about similar programs funded with DC taxpayer dollars. “This grant builds on the work we have done through our Immigrant Justice Legal Services grant program and through the monthly citizenship workshops; it’s an example of how we can work together as a community and use local resources to break down barriers to citizenship.”

Last summer the mayor launched the $900,000 Immigrant Justice Legal Services (IJLS) Grant Program to provide legal services for illegal aliens at risk of being deported under the Trump administration’s stricter immigration policies. The money goes to leftist groups that provide “know your rights” workshops, legal briefings, trainings, mentorships and legal assistance. The program is the first of its kind in Washington DC. The goal, according to Bowser, is to help illegal aliens “navigate a challenging political climate and thrive in our community.” The mayor claims it has “helped bring our DC values to life and has made us a safer stronger DC” by providing immigrants with the knowledge and resources they need to understand their rights. Under the plan, leftist “community-based organizations” receive grants of up to $150,000 to help immigrants.
