Illegal aliens will NOT be getting $1200 coronavirus relief payments

Only taxpayers with Social Security numbers will get the cash payments which means citizens, immigrants on work visas and green card holders.

I know that this headline is shocking. The Republicans didn’t allow illegals to get taxpayer money in
the recent coronavirus legislation, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security Act.

They didn’t sell out the American people like they’ve done so many times in the past. Who would have
guessed.

Only taxpayers with Social Security numbers will get the cash payments which means citizens,
immigrants on work visas and green card holders.

The Democrats must have thought they got enough other stuff and decided not to fight for the illegals
this time. And the media didn’t ask them about it either. It was all hush-hush.

Of course, the illegal aliens and the organizations that support them are not happy. Looks like their
lobbying of their Democrat friends didn’t work.

In the article, Theresa Cardinal Brown, the Director of Immigration and Cross-Border Policy at the
Bipartisan Policy Center, she says that the immigrants, especially the illegal ones, are going to be the
ones who are likely to be the most impacted financially during this pandemic.

Do you think illegal immigrants should be given a free pass?

“Certainly, immigrants are going to bear the brunt of this,” Brown said.

So the illegals came here and stole American jobs and now they think they should get paid for losing
that job because they are the ones on the short end of the stick this time. Nope. Don’t think so.

You can always count on AOC to complain about the poor illegals not getting taxpayer money. She
tweeted, “Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get
nothing…” Other Democrats chimed in about it too, of course. And the House hasn’t voted on the bill
yet so there’s always time. But will the Democrats throw Americans overboard to change this part of
the legislation? Not this time, I don’t think. The optics would not be good.

But never fear, Democrats, I’m sure Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will find another
time to slip in some money for the illegals but will the Republicans hold the line again?
