Black Lives Matter Demands Boston Spends $15M Taxpayer Money on Illegal Aliens
BLM wants police budget slashed and money spent on illegals instead
Black Lives Matter is demanding that Boston slashes the city's police budget and uses the taxpayer money to invest in illegal aliens instead.
A Massachusetts chapter of the far-left group, BLM Boston, is pressing city officials to hand over $15 million in American tax dollars for people who live in the country illegally.
The group is calling for the money to be spent on rolling out the red carpet for illegal aliens by providing them with summer jobs.
BLM posted a list of demands for police money to be diverted to.
The organization commands the city to spend millions on creating thousands of summer jobs, some of which would be given to 14 to 22-year-old illegal aliens.
In a statement, Black Lives Matters calls on Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to slash at least 10% from the annual police budget.
"We demand that Mayor Marty Walsh cut the police budget by 10% from $414 million to $372 million or less, including cutting at least $40 million from the Police Department’s $60 million overtime budget," the group said in a statement.
"Those funds should be reinvested in the needs of Black and Brown communities, including providing housing and jobs to people released from prison.
"In addition, we demand that funds are reinvested in youth jobs during a global pandemic and economic crisis.
"The City should fund $15 million for 5000 summer jobs and 1000 year-round jobs lasting from September to June, including hiring 14-22 year olds, hiring undocumented young people, and providing grants to organizations.
"Mayor Walsh, CFO Emme Handy, and Director Justin Sterritt: meet with young people immediately to discuss protecting young people this summer!"
The demand comes as the Minneapolis City Council has taken its first step in attempting to “dismantle” the city’s police department, according to city officials, in response to the death of George Floyd.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are added to the U.S. population in addition to about 1.2 million legal immigrants who permanently resettle in the country and another more than one million foreign visa workers who arrive to take American jobs, according to Breitbart.
The results have stifled upward mobility in wages and employment for, specifically, black Americans.
Research in the past has revealed that every ten percent increase in the immigrant share of an occupation reduces the wages of black American men by about five percent.
Likewise, every one percent increase in the immigrant share of an occupation reduces overall American weekly wages by about 0.5 percent, researcher Steven Camarotta has found.
This means the average native-born American worker today has their weekly wages reduced by perhaps 8.5 percent because of current legal immigration levels.
