Somali Congressmuslim Ilhan Omar and members of “The (Jihad) Squad” have a host of proposals for the next Chinese coronavirus relief package — and believe benefits should be extended to illegal aliens. They are calling for the next package to guarantee financial relief for individuals who are not in the country legally and even those who are incarcerated.
NY Post Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MM) is calling for families with illegal immigrants and those of mixed status to be included in all relief packages, including the previous $2.2 trillion deal that already passed.
“It is absurd and cruel that a taxpaying, mixed status couple or family could be excluded from this relief. Over 140,000 Minnesotans (many of them Somali Muslims) live in mixed status families of some form,” Omar wrote in a statement Tuesday, “As currently written, many Minnesotans who are in this country legally or part of a mixed status family will not receive any stimulus money, even if one of them has a social security number but the other does not.”
“The Recovery Rebates Improvement Act will expand the eligibility requirement to ensure joint tax filers with one SSN will receive payment and provide more people with vital economic assistance. Comprehensive legislation is needed in the next package to ensure that all illegal aliens, whether holding a SSN or not, can access these relief payments.”
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) issued a proposal calling for the federal government to immediately issue debit cards pre-loaded with $2,000 to every person in the US, including to those who have been here illegally for as little as three months. The card would be recharged with $1,000 monthly “until one year after the end of the coronavirus crisis.”
She offers to pay for it by having the US Mint print two $1 trillion coins, which her plans says would then be purchased by the federal reserve “at full face value.”
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) called for the next package to guarantee relief for individuals who are not in the country legally or even those who are incarcerated.
“We have to continue to make investments to support vulnerable populations like those experiencing homelessness, incarcerated men and women. We’re focused right now making sure the CARES Act in its implementation is one that is in urgent need and mitigating the hurt that so many of our illegal alien families are experiencing right now.”
