[Ed. – The call for “unity” is always, always about fleecing the law-abiding American taxpayer.]
So now the braying begins about also handing out $1,200 checks to the 22 million illegal aliens currently in the states. Advocates don’t think the checks should stop at Americans or legal residents.
Here’s the Breitbart report:
Illegal aliens are demanding they too receive $1,200 in federal checks from the government as part of a Chinese coronavirus crisis relief package.
Open borders organizations like the George Soros-funded United We Dream, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and the National Immigration Law Center — all of which represent the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States — are pleading with the federal government to cut federal checks to illegal aliens who have Individual Tax Identification Number (ITINs).
This isn’t really about illegals. It’s about empowering left wing lawyers and their Democrat patrons who gain so much from illegal immigration.
To clarify, $1200 checks are ONLY going to some w/social sec numbers, NOT immigrants w/ tax IDs (ITINs).
Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing. Many are essential workers who pay more taxes than Amazon.
