When the 2.2 Trillion stimulus package was written, Conservatives forced the Far Left to make a major concession: In order to receive a stimulus check in the mail, individuals would need to prove they had a social security number. As you know, Social Security Numbers are reserved for American citizens and legal permanent residents who have green cards and are authorized to work in the United States.
This was an important demand because under the Democrats' original plan, illegal aliens would have been eligible for stimulus checks too!
But the Far Left isn't done fighting for illegals. Tens of millions of Americans still haven't received their stimulus checks, but Democrats are moving forward with a bill to extend the benefits to illegal aliens too!
The bill is called the Leave No Taxpayer Behind Act. But don't let the name fool you. This is all about giving stimulus checks to illegal aliens.
The legislation works by amending the Cares Act to allow people to file for stimulus checks using an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). I don't want to go too deep into how our tax laws work, but even illegal aliens are required to pay taxes. The illegals who aren't using stolen or fraudulent social security numbers use ITINs to pay their tax liabilities.
And just so we are clear, the contributions are minimal. Democrats claim that 11 million illegal aliens pay 11 billion in state and local taxes every year. That works out to be approximately 1,000 per illegal alien, and remember, that includes state-level taxes like sales tax.
Under the Democrats' plan, all of these illegals would be eligible to receive 1,200 from the government. Yes, by the Left's own admission, they want to send illegal aliens more than they contribute in taxes...
To the left, this is all just a political game. They spent weeks blocking small businesses from accessing emergency loans so they could use their plight to get their own agenda items passed. Now, as both parties begin negotiating a fourth stimulus bill, Democrats are saying an illegal alien bailout is non-negotiable.
The Leave No Taxpayer Behind Act was written and introduced by Rep. Lou Correa (D-CA) (shown above). Here is how he explained his decision to write the bill:
"I was appalled to learn hardworking, taxpaying immigrants were left out of the 2 Trillion Cares Act. By casting out immigrants, we are placing some of our most vulnerable residents in grave danger. Every taxpayer, irrespective of citizenship status, needs government assistance now."
This is, of course, disgustingly false. The United States has ZERO obligation to bail out illegal aliens. That responsibility literally falls on their home countries.
But that is how twisted the Democrat Party has become. At a time when tens of millions of Americans still haven't received their assistance, the Far Left wants to open the program up for illegal aliens and drain the funds reserved for Americans and legal residents... They claim that illegal aliens were excluded from the stimulus program "in error." This would be laughable if the stakes weren't so high...
Pelosi has given the bill the green light and added it to the list of Democrats' non-negotiable demands.
The leadership in both parties are now negotiating over this. With everything going on in this country, these traitors are actually pushing to bailout illegal aliens...
They must be stopped!
Now, more than ever, it is time to put America and Americans first.
But far too many Congressmen and Senators (in both parties) believe they were sent to Washington DC to help keep illegal aliens afloat...
We need your help, right now, to smack some sense into these idiots!
Don't let them pass this bill!
