Billionaire Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has announced that he will be donating $33 million to create college scholarships for 1,000 DREAMers — illegal immigrants brought into America by their parents.
Politico reports that Bezos, the billionaire CEO of e-commerce giant Amazon and owner of the Washington Post, will be donating $33 million alongside his wife MacKenzie Bezos to create college scholarships for illegal immigrant DREAMers.
Bezos donation is being made to TheDream.US, a nonprofit group founded by the former owner of the Washington Post, Don Graham.
Bezos donation is expected to cover scholarships for approximately 1,000 illegal immigrants who are currently still in the country under the Obama-era DACA policy.
Currently, the nonprofit group is funding approximately 2,840 illegal immigrants to study in the United States.
