(Tea Party PAC) – If you’re still laboring under the delusion that the Democratic Party is all about standing up for the poor, the hard working average American citizen being oppressed by the big, bad rich guys of the world, prepare to have your mind-blown and your eyes opened.
Apparently, a bunch of DC think tanks are all about wanting to send out some checks as part of the coronavirus relief package. However, they want illegal aliens to get some wads of cash right alongside what Americans receive. In fact, they think it ought to be the same amount and everything.
Yes, that’s correct, ladies and gentlemen. These think tanks want illegals, who literally broke the law in order to get here and are often working under the table while taking jobs from hard working citizens, to receive benefits for being out of work. Can you believe this insanity?
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
The government is currently working on a plan to send money directly to Americans who are impacted by shutdowns over coronavirus, and these think tanks believe that 12 million illegal aliens are also entitled to that money — and free healthcare.
Among the think tank’s lobbying for this economic nightmare are Immigration Hub, whose website says they are “a team of former congressional staff, executive branch officials and immigration policy advocates with deep roots in advocacy and communications and decades of collective experience” and the Bipartisan Policy Center, which frequently works to promote leftist ideals and causes.
“Barring [immigrants] from access to testing, medical services, and economic stimulus benefits would have devastating consequences to the public and financial health of our country,” Kerri Talbot, the director of federal advocacy at Immigration Hub, told The Hill.
The takeaway here is that the left cares more about padding their voter registration rolls than they do providing care and relief for the citizens of their own country. It’s shameful to see the left constantly pander to illegals and ignore the people who need help right in front of their faces. These folks are not our responsibility. They are the responsibility of the country they came from.
That’s not a popular thing to say in today’s politically correct climate, but that doesn’t make it any less true. It’s time to send these folks back home.
Theresa Cardinal Brown, director of immigration and cross-border policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center, told the outlet that “immigrants, especially undocumented ones, are likely to be most impacted economically.”
“Certainly, immigrants are going to bear the brunt of this,” said Brown. “They’re working disproportionately in a lot of the hourly wage jobs that are going to be most impacted by the economic downturn. We’re taking a lot of them are undocumented, and have never been eligible for most of the benefits that we’re talking about.”
The groups are also advocating for testing and medical care for these foreign nationals who are in the country illegally.
President Trump himself has stated that he plans to give testing to illegal aliens because doing so is in the best interest of the country. This is a move that’s easy to understand, seeing as how these folks might pass the virus along and contribute to the issues we’re having keeping cases down.
“The answer is yes, we will do those tests because I think in that case it’s important,” Trump said when asked during a briefing over the weekend. “I think you could say illegal alien, you could say illegal immigrant, you could say whatever you want, use your definition of what you’re talking about — we’re all talking about the same thing.”
Of course, it’s not only think tanks who want to see this kind of action being taken to provide for the needs of illegal aliens. Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have penned a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asking her to put some sort of permanent immigration protection for DACA folks.
How about we put citizens first and send those who are illegal back home for their on countries to do deal with? This situation is hard enough as it is.
