If you didn’t think San Francisco could get any more liberal, think again.
The progressive city announced plans to hand out money to low-income transgender people, favoring black and “Latinx” recipients in particular. The “Guaranteed Income for Trans People” (GIFT) program will also be open to illegal immigrants and people who are incarcerated.
According to 1,719 pages of documents from the City of San Francisco, obtained by Judicial Watch, San Francisco will allocate tax dollars on a preferential basis for black and Latino transgender individuals through a program that offers financial assistance to transgender people
Fox News Digital reported:
The pilot program provides low-income transgender residents with payments of up to $1,200 each month for up to 18 months with the goal of providing “economically marginalized transgender people with unrestricted, monthly guaranteed income as a way to combat poverty.” It uses pre-paid debit cards due to participants potentially not having bank accounts. The amount someone can receive is capped at $4,000.
Program documents, including those on its public website, say it prioritizes enrollment by race as well as those who engage in “survival sex trades,” those who have been in prison, and illegal immigrants.
