Ride Share Company Lyft Has Donated $200,000 For Free Rides To Illegal Immigrants

Riding share company Lyft announced a major effort to help illegal immigrants across the country when they donated $200,000 to groups that support migrants.

The decision was first announced just ahead of the Fourth of July where Lyft declared, “America is an idea, not a geography.” According to Breitbart, Lyft will match up to $50,000 in donations to Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) and will be giving out $150,000 in ride credits.

According to the report, Lyft executives wrote:

This Fourth of July, let’s celebrate the American values of inclusivity, freedom, and opportunity by embracing the many ways it means to be American.

Every one of us has a hand in defining what it means to be American. At Lyft, we celebrate this. A large number of both Lyft drivers and riders identify as immigrants and/or first-generation Americans, and it’s your stories that inspire us to continue to take a stand. Immigration is vital to the fabric of our cities where we live and work. Yet, we know every day, immigrant rights — including the simple right to live your life and be treated equitably — are being challenged.

This Independence Day, we’re asking our community of passengers and drivers to join us by taking a stand for immigration rights.

“Raices compassionately defends and empowers immigrants and advocates for human rights, equality, respect, and the right to migrate. Most of the people we work with do not have access to reliable transportation,” a Lyft spokesperson said via The Guardian.

And, Breitbart reports:

As of June, more than 211,000 adult border crossers and illegal aliens have been released into the interior of the U.S. with the vast majority being dropped off by DHS officials in El Paso, Texas and San Antonio, Texas.

The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S. Today, there are anywhere between 11 million and 22 million illegal aliens living across the country — the majority of which are concentrated in states like California, New York, Florida, Texas, and Illinois.
