Biden Looking to Reward States With More Immigrants

Part of Biden’s infrastructure bill that Democrats are pushing through Congress seems to reward states with more immigrants.

According to The Daily Wire:

The infrastructure bill pushed by President Biden and Senate Democrats apparently rewards states with more immigrants, offering them federal money based on the number of “covered populations” proportional to the total number of people of “covered populations” in all eligible states.

Included in the bill, the Digital Equity Act would permit the Department of Commerce to create a grant program funding broadband expansion. “25 percent of the total grant amount shall be based on the number of individuals in the eligible State who are members of covered populations in proportion to the total number of individuals in all eligible States who are members of covered populations,” Breitbart noted.

Breitbart added, “Those considered part of the ‘covered populations’ that a state’s grant money would be tied to — depending on how large this group is — newly arrived immigrants to the U.S. who speak little-to-no English.”

The Digital Equity Act describes “covered populations” in this way: “individuals who live in covered households; aging individuals; incarcerated individuals, other than individuals who are incarcerated in a federal correctional facility; veterans; individuals with disabilities; individuals with a language barrier, including individuals who— are English learners; have low levels of literacy; individuals who are members of a racial or ethnic minority group; and individuals who primarily reside in a rural area.

It also looks like the bill will harm Red States who do not have large foreign-born populations by not making them eligible for broadband expansion funds.

Absolutely no surprise. Voter bribery has been the Progressive Socialist Dimocrat’s go-to forte for decades. Americans may be waking up to it, i.e., realizing the bill is coming due soon, so an immigrant population that’s ignorant of their political chicanery is the logical next target.

It’s just a good thing for China Joe that there’s less of a chance of me meeting face to face with him than of me being hit by lightening. I wouldn’t hesitate a second meeting the senile crook out behind the gym.

I wonder if Biden is too far gone to realize the hate he is arousing in American citizens. Those who didn’t vote for him and those who did vote for him and are in shock.

This administration’s been transporting illegals primarily to red states. The red states are not advised of the where or when and have to use their own resources to find out, but if this bill adds funding because of ‘non english speaking’ residents they could get additional funding from it. Of course that funding won’t begin to offset what the illegals cost local communities, especially since many are infected with Covid.

Can’t wait till the people who have been here for years and worked in unskilled labor jobs lose their jobs to illegals who will work for half the pay or get paid ‘under the table’ . It happened during the Obama years. Landscaping, construction, restaurants, hotels, maintenance. A lot of petty crime also. Enough drugs to destroy neighborhoods.
