President Joe Biden’s progressive administration was seeking to give stimulus checks to illegal aliens as part of the new sweeping COVID relief bill.
But now, some level-headed Democratic Senators have said enough is enough.
“A handful of swing state Senate Democrats joined Senate Republicans on Thursday to add a budget amendment that will help ensure that stimulus checks, funded by American taxpayers, are not given to illegal aliens living in the United States,” Breitbart News reported.
The senators are as follows: Sens. Krysten Sinema (D-AZ), Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Gary Peters (D-MI), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Joe Manchin (D-WV).
The vote is an ominous sign for Biden who has spoke openly about a mandate for his agenda.
“The vote is critical for President Joe Biden’s administration because it shows the lack of support in the Senate Democrat caucus for pro-illegal immigration policies — and potentially a DREAM Act-style amnesty — specifically among those who represent swing states and will be up for re-election in 2022 and 2024,” Breitbart reported.
