Democrats have made the insane decision to block Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) amendment to prevent illegal aliens from receiving stimulus checks.
Cruz issued a statement following the vote that sent his amendment to the chopping block. Cruz said, “Not only does this COVID bill fail to address the real needs of the American people who are suffering, but it hands out billions in taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants.”
The $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill has left a bitter taste in the mouths of Americans, and now we know that billions of dollars will be spent on illegal aliens while American citizens continue to struggle.
Limiting the stimulus payouts could have either saved $8 billion or direct that sum towards citizens. The decision by Democrats to open up relief funds to non-citizens is shameful and something that we should not forget anytime soon.
This came even as caps were put on the stimulus checks, which would prevent Americans earning certain amounts from receiving payouts.
Democrats are fiscally responsible when it comes to giving American’s money but are simultaneously writing blank checks to illegal aliens. Democrats are not representing Americans which is their only job.
