Democratic leaders to discuss including illegal aliens on next stimulus bill, Pelosi suggests

Share

Democratic leaders in Congress are interested in making the next coronavirus relief package based off of Taxpayer Identification Numbers, a move that could allow families with illegal alien members to qualify for payments.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, while speaking Thursday during a press briefing, responded to a question about unemployed immigrants in the United States and American citizens who are married to undocumented immigrants. Both groups of individuals did not qualify for the financial aid package passed by Congress in March.

In response, Pelosi said she has been “working” to make the tax identification number as a basis for how individuals in the United States would receive direct payments from the government.

“All of it, though, speaks to the fact that we are well served if we recognize that everybody in our country is part of our community and helping to grow the economy,” the California congresswoman said Thursday. “Most of what we’re doing is to meet the needs of people, but it’s all stimulus.”

“What we said was we want to address the mixed family issue. We are supposed to have a call on that tomorrow,” Pelosi continued, saying she wanted to “expand outreach opportunities” to nonprofit organizations that are providing assistance to those who don’t otherwise qualify for stimulus money.

She specified that the call on Friday will include Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Eligibility requirements have been a point of contention since Congress passed the CARES Act, a $2.2 trillion relief package for Americans suffering economic hardship, in March. The legislation allows direct cash payments to those who file taxes with a Social Security number, but excludes those who use an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number.

Those living and working in the United States unlawfully typically substitute a Social Security number for a Taxpayer Identification Number. Consequently, many U.S. citizens who filed taxes with an illegal alien spouse did not receive a stimulus check from the federal government.

Democratic lawmakers have not only called for stimulus money to be given to illegal aliens, but members have even introduced legislation that would amend the CARES Act and allow illegal aliens to obtain the funds.

“I myself cannot understand why the tax number is not the basis for how some of this money is distributed, so we’ll be making that case as well,” Pelosi said Thursday.

    What a stupid question. The people who do not have a SS card are here in America illegally and therefore do not qualify for government handouts. They get enough handouts from our government as is!

    Congress felt it necessary to remove the $200 per month stimulus for social security recipients. You know, those darn WWII, Korea & Vietnam vets and their wives many of whom largely depend on S.S. as their main if not only financial resource during retirement. Now, bleeding heart Pelosi wants to help out the invaders (notice I didn’t even mention illegal, but darn if they didn’t force their way into our country) because she believes the country owes them some form of upkeep while they are here.
    The Democrats don’t give a damn about older American citizens because we largely identify as Republican, they only want to take care of potential Democrat voters.
    Remember the generations who fought to keep this country free, while not perfect, at least we still are free. Vote Democrat and it won’t be long until you aren’t.

    What does Nancy Pelosi not understand about the definition of the word ILLEGAL ? Why should taxpayers be stuck with giving benefits to people who entered this country illegally? I have a suggestion. If Pelosi and her followers want so bad to give benefits to illegals, I propose that anyone registered to to the Democrat party have their Federal Tax Rate increased to cover benefits to these human paracites who don’t belong here. Let’s see how long that will last?

    Nancy knows how many illegals are using “Taxpayer IDs” and needs to support the criminals who invaded. My daughter was in the ‘Hotel & Restaurant’ business and, after an injury, tried to file a claim. Since her mother and I had divorced, she had her own “Social Security Number” since age 6. As an adult she was denied her benefits based on not being “Maria” who was using the same number….
    When she pressed the situation, the SS people eventually gave her the benefits and (I am told) put an ‘Alpha number’ after the numeral, so it came out 123-45-6789-A (then -B, then -C, etc.) A ‘leak’ suggested there were 20+ alphas following her number… Easy to do in the hotel business…
    I am sure Nancy’s ‘deep state’ operatives could provide a fairly accurate count of the number of stolen IDs by illegal aliens…

    Let the American people vote on it. They are so flagrant with the taxpayers money. Congress is anything but a fiduciary with money that doesn’t belong to them.
