Democrats Introduce Measure To Amend Coronavirus Relief That Will Bankrupt Our Country

(Tea Party PAC) – On Friday, the Democrats introduced a measure to amend the already $2 trillion CARES Act which would extend the cash payments to benefit illegal aliens.

Ah, there it is.

We should have known they’d try to do something like this.

The measure was introduced by Reps. Lou Correa (CA), Judy Chu (CA), and Raúl Grijalva (AZ), all Democrats, and is dubbed the Leave No Taxpayer Behind Act.

The CARES Act, signed into law last week, is the $2 trillion emergency economic relief designed to help American citizens during this time of unprecedented economic hardship.

And they want to extend it to non-citizens.

The CARES Act currently requires recipients to have a Social Security number.

ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers) taxpayers, who include foreign nationals and illegal aliens, are ineligible for cash assistance.

According to the press release issued by its Democrat authors, this is an “egregious error.”

“The Leave No Taxpayer Behind Act amends the CAREs Act to ensure that all taxpayers are eligible for their $1,200 relief check,” the release states.

It continues:

Every individual taxpayer irrespective of citizenship status should receive government assistance. With more than 140,000 coronavirus cases in the United States, it is imperative we come together. This pandemic has led to the closure of many small businesses, which will have a disproportionate impact on immigrants. The “Leave No Taxpayer Behind” Act will ensure immigrants critical to our economy are not forgotten.

“I was appalled to learn hardworking, taxpaying immigrants were left out of the $2 trillion CARES Act,” Correa said in a statement:

These taxpayers work in critical sectors of our economy, like agriculture, and contribute greatly to our country. While many of us sit at home, these hardworking immigrants are still at work in our hospitals, our fields, and countless other industries. The coronavirus doesn’t care about a person’s wealth, job, or immigration status. By casting out immigrants, we are placing some of our most vulnerable residents in grave danger. Every individual taxpayer, irrespective of citizenship status, needs government assistance now.

Chu concurred, declaring that our economy will not be able to survive the crisis if we are “excluding entire segments of the population” and added that the virus “does not care about immigration status.”

“Immigrants—regardless of their status—are taxpayers who are working in some of the most important jobs keeping our economy running during this difficult time. COVID-19 doesn’t discriminate,” Grijalva said.

“Our relief programs shouldn’t discriminate against those who need help during this crisis, and this legislation ensures that immigrants with ITINs can get the economic relief they deserve,” he continued.

The bill has the stamp of approval from members of the radical left “Squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

AOC started the trend of calling for checks to extend to illegal aliens.

“To clarify, $1200 checks are ONLY going to some w/social sec numbers, NOT immigrants w/ tax IDs (ITINs),” she tweeted after the bipartisan stimulus bill passed the Senate unanimously. “Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing”:

Breitbart notes:

The bipartisan bill, which President Trump signed last week, will provide a $1,200 check to U.S. citizens making up to $75,000 annually. Families making $150,000 per year or less will be eligible for $2,400 in cash relief, with $500 per child.

  1. I am for any immigrants that actually pay federal, state, and local taxes to receive the relief check. If they have contribute to the US economy, they shouldn’t be left out. However, i am against illegal immigrants that evade paying any taxes, yet ride the coattails of our generous welfare programs. They have already benefited from relief through all those years of not paying taxes.

  2. Oh god — next they will propose an amendment to issue payments to any criminal released from prison, which has also been proposed. There is no absurdity at that expense of american citizens that is beyond Democr. advocacy. on their relentless hunt for voters.

  3. Illegal immigrants have no business being in our country and DEFINITELY, don’t deserve any taxpayer money during this time.

    • AMEN, THEY ARE ALREADY PON EVERY HAND OUT THE DEMOCRAPS CAN DREAM UP IT ALL ABOUT AT SOME POINT GIVING THESE ILLEGALS AMNESTY WHICH WILL CEMENT THEIR VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRAPS AND THEIR TOTAL POWER FOR DECADES.

  4. The US citizens tax dollars were used for the Russian hoax trial and the impeachment trial of the best President we’ve ever had. Now the democrats want to give the illegals money to help them through this covid19 crisis. The aid should go to Americans who have lived here and paid their fair share, not the illegals who don’t want to obey our rules. If the democrats get their way, the illegals will get the aid first. It’s a shame that in order for the US citizens to receive any help in this crisis, the democrats have to get want they want first. This is not the time to play politics, but instead to put the US citizens needs above everything else. TRUMP 2020!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. My conservative GOP friends it is time for us to take the fight to the democratic party and the best way to do that is start as American Citizens and legal tax payors finding representation that is not afraid to take on big money. We need to find someone who can help us file charges against George Soros and Mike Blumberg for their use of their money to destroy our constitution, an act of treason I would like to make this complaint as whistle blower against the two men as enemies of the United States of America. I would like to find representation that can get me before the United States Senate where the House has no control and I would like to charge a formal complaint of treason. Taking this before the senate as a Private Citizen. I will stand on my research that these two men have contributed money and instructions to the likes of Antifa , to come up against the conservative party and in 2018 bought the house of the representatives for the democrats, all that I pledge is that I want to be heard that these to men will be tried by the United States Senate. When found guilty of treason against the United Sates will be put to death, all I ask is that if I am successful in bringing these two men to death that I get to choose the way that they die, and my preference is a public hanging in the town square of Altus OK. It is time the GOP started fighting back with fire and I am one conservative that is not afraid of these two men’s money. I will boldly stand before the senate and make charges so they are held to a trial they need to be taught a lesson that their big money will be their down fall and death as buying an election is an act of treason and according to our constitution they are to be put to death. Then after they have been judged and die, I will be coming for the six main democrats and show their acts of treason to the people of the United States of America. Be ware I am coming but I am coming in my rights as citizen under the protection of my constitutional rights to claim that these people have committed acts of treason and must die. Again, I ask that these six democrats be hanged by their necks until dead. They have been nothing but obstructionist and done nothing but hurt the United States Constitution. They must be held accountable for their actions and their acts of treason. So, is there any representation out there brave enough to get me before the United States Senate?

  6. Unfortunately this article didn’t clarify whether ITINs include illegal aliens as well as green-card legal aliens (while seems that it might be, perhaps there is a way to distinguish between legal and illegal aliens if they both have ITINs). If green-card holding legal aliens are paying taxes, it would right to include them with regular taxpayers.

  7. If these Democrats love the illegals so much, then let them sign their paychecks over to them. Americans are not responsible for illegals. If an American were in Mexico or Canada and ask for money, they would be in jail or deported. Democrats are just evil!

  8. I DON’T think so! . . . The ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT (oxymoron?!?) shouldn’t receive ANYTHING but a ONE WAY ticket back home to their country of origin – DEPORTED PERMANENTLY. They ARE illegal . . .they BROKE the LAW. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  9. Shouldn’t these illegals be in jail? Maybe if they want more help, they should go back to where they came from. AMERICA OWES THEM NOTHING BUT A ONE WAY TRIP BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY.

  10. IF THE F K N DEMON RATS WANT THE ILLEGAL TO GET MONEY THEN THEY SHOULD GIVE UP THEIR PAY CHECKS FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS AND GIVE IT TO THEM !!!! OUR TAX DOLLARS ARE FOR AMERICANS NOT CRIMINALS !!! ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL (AGAINST THE LAW ) THERE FOR THEY DON’T QUALIFY FOR ANY MONEY FROM THE LEGAL PEOPLE THAT WORK HARD AND PAY TAXES!!!

  11. An undocumented worker might have several SS# or TINs many have two families Like the young illegal that killed 2 cops in denver he had a wife and kids in Colorado another wife and kids in California He was getting aid for both families He shot them in the back went to hickenpoopers eatery got his check cashed it and fled to Mexico

  12. I DON’T THINK SO TO THE THE SQUAD WHO CAN’T THINK WHAT IT WOULD DO TO THE FINANCES OF OUR COUNTRY -SO GO TO HELL FOR IDIOTIC THINKING. EVEN SOME OF OUR PEOPLE AREN’T GETTING CHECKS. AND MOST OF THESE ILLEGALS ARE EVEN A CITIZEN OF THE USA. – STUPID MORON.!! THEY CAN’ GO BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY AND SEE IF THEIR GOVERNMENT WOULD HELP THEM.

  13. I think THEIR comment says it all – “while we sit at home they are working”. If they are working, there is no need to give them money to replace their income. Duh. This is to help Americans that have lost their jobs/income. We can not provide financial support for the whole world.

    • THE PROBLEM IS THAT WE DO PROVIDE FINANCIAL AID TO A LOT OF COUNTRIES! SINCE WHEN ARE WE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING EVERYONE IN THE WORLD HANDOUTS! YOU CAN BET THAT IF WE ASKED ALL THESE COUNTRIES FOR FINANCIAL AID THEY WOULD LAUGH IN OUT FACES! THIS MONEY THAT IS SENT TO OTHER COUNTRIES IS THE MONEY THAT YOU AND I PAY IN TAXES, THAT MONEY SHOULD BE SPENT HERE IN OUR COUNTRY TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS FOR US! WHAT REALLY GRIPS ME IS THAT WE BORROW MONEY FROM CHINA AND SO WE OWE THEM. IN THE BIBLE IT SAYS “NEITHER A BORROWER NOR A LENDER BE” AND THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING!

  14. This is war it is time to take out all demon rats. They are all anti American and should be tried for treason!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. These Democraps need to be punished for their actions not just when they are up for a vote on Election Day but right now. Every Democrap who votes for this IGNORANCE needs to be removed from office forced to repay every penny they have gotten from day one of being in office. They also need to be forced to pay a fine equal to the amount of money they have WASTED on ILLEGALS while in office times 1,00,000. This would make all the other Democrapic wannabes think about first holding office when they only want to promote IGNORANCE that is anti-American. Second they won’t be doing that promote ILLEGALS IGNORANCE when it puts money of taxpayers in ILLEGALS pockets where’s it should NEVER go. Lastly it will help repay the Billions if not Trillions these LBERAL MORONS have stolen from Americans buying votes from ILLEGALS and other Democraps

  16. There you go people, when the elections come around vote all Democrats out of office. If nothing else to protect the American people and those eligible to receive the payments.

  17. If there is money for Illegals then there is more for citizens because they should GET NADA capisce` Not one thin dime. self deport if you can’t make it without robbong benefits made for CITIZENS> GFY DEMS!

  18. I think we’re all sick and tired of these stupid Democrats trying to take care of illegal aliens that’s taxpayer money they don’t pay taxes you morons they don’t have a Social Security card how can they pay taxes you’re all a bunch of idiots we we do need to vote you out of office you need to go pound sand in your you know what let Pelosi and her other cohorts foot the bill for the illegals they got money let him put their money where their mouth is like that’ll happen right stick to your guns Trump don’t sign nothing for them

  19. And your salary comes off to the back of tax paying citizens who never did not would have voted for you. Citizens is the key word here.Criminals ,those who break the law,ie. Breaking into our country through illegal means, ie., not through a legal point of entry, should not be confused with U.S. Citizens.

  20. The democrats will take care of illegals before US citizens. The senate will vote this down and Trump will not sign it. But we the citizens must VOTE THE DEMOCRATS OUT OF CONGRESS.
