Pousseys washington, Va.
— If you’re a mom, you know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of an unfair election.
You’ve had to deal with the political ramifications of losing the popular vote in the November election and the impact of the president’s decision to delay deportations for the undocumented, while your children are struggling to make ends meet.
But as the Trump administration moves toward the deportation of undocumented immigrants, the Trump fund, set up to help families who are victims of deportation, is now also on the chopping block.
The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Trump’s administration is looking to cut the Trump Pousys fund from $25,000 to $10,000 — a reduction that would be significant, especially for immigrant families who have been in the United States for generations.
“The money should be a very large chunk of the pie, particularly for families with children and those who are struggling,” Trump said in February.
Trump also has repeatedly said he would make “a big deal” about the fund, but the Pusys fund has been on the ballot for more than a decade and hasn’t received any major pushback.
A spokeswoman for the Poses said Tuesday that the president has been “reluctant to cut funds to a fund that has been established to help poor families” and that the White House would “continue to work with Congress to find a way to restore funding.”
“I have been supportive of the Poms for years,” said Jennifer McElroy, the Pows’ director of communications.
“They have been a strong advocate for us.
We will continue to fight for them, and we will keep the pressure on them.”
The Pousshes were one of more than 100 organizations that signed a letter last month to White House Counsel Don McGahn, urging him to restore the Pysds fund, which has been targeted by the Trump campaign.
The letter also called for the Trump Administration to “begin the process of reviving and rebuilding” the fund and the White Houses office to investigate the Trump family’s contributions.
The White House is currently negotiating with the administration over the fund’s funding, according to an administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks are private.
The administration official also said the administration has been in discussions with a group of immigrant advocacy groups to help bring some relief to immigrant families.
As the Trump Fund was being considered for funding, the administration also was considering a bill that would provide $10 million to states that do not have the funding.
The money would go to programs like Pell Grants and the State Children’s Aid Fund, which supports low-income families.
The administration official said the White houses staff is currently working on a draft of the bill, but it is expected to be ready for the president to sign on to by the end of the month.
In a statement released Tuesday, the WhiteHouse said it has “been working with Congress and with immigrant advocacy organizations to provide additional resources to immigrant and refugee families.”
Pusys are a nonprofit that has donated $1.8 million to Republican candidates and committees over the past three years, according the Washington Post.
The organization, which also provides food and other financial assistance to immigrants in need, said it would be interested in having the Trump funds restored, as it would give more resources to those families.
Pusy’s was founded in 1978 by Poussi-D’Ambrosio, a Bronx, N.Y., native who was a teacher in the Bronx during the Great Depression.
In 1988, he joined the Whitehouse Council of Advisors on Women, Children and Families, a group that advocates for low-wage workers and for children with disabilities.
In 2011, the organization created the POTUS Fund, a $25 million fund that was used to help more than 4,000 immigrant families whose families were in the U.S. illegally.
