While Americans are seeing the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression, workers forbidden from returning to work and many small businesses closing forever, Democrats want to bail out illegal immigrants.
In March President Trump signed the CARES Act, a $2.2 trillion stimulus bill providing a $1,200 payment to Americans who earn less than $75,000, and Democrats complained illegal immigrants weren't included.
Last week U.S. Speaker of the House and fake Catholic Nancy Pelosi — along with other Democrats — pushed through a $3 trillion stimulus bill allowing businesses to legally hire illegal immigrants.
On Monday Democrat California governor and self-described Catholic Gavin Newsom used $75 million state taxpayer dollars to give illegals $500 – $1,000 per household.
A day later Republican Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton introduced the No Bailouts for Illegal Aliens Act defunding states and localities providing American taxpayer-funded coronavirus relief money to illegal aliens.
He commented, "Congress passed the CARES Act to help workers impacted by the China virus pandemic, not to give a handout to those who broke our immigration laws. The federal government shouldn't be subsidizing states' efforts to send cash to illegal aliens.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates illegal immigrants cost more than $116 billion per year with tax-paying Americans footing the bill, and Democrats are pushing to increase that number.
