Dems Sneak Illegal Immigrant Handout in Reconciliation Bill

The Democrats have snuck a multi-billion dollar handout to illegal immigrants in their reconciliation bill.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill extends the Child Tax Credit to anyone in the United States who provides an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, overturning a crucial safeguard against fraud. Federal law required a valid Social Security number to receive the cash transfer from the federal government. The potential payout for illegal immigrants is massive, with each family receiving a monthly payment of $250 to $300 per child.

A survey from the Pew Research Center found that roughly 675,000 children are not eligible for a Social Security number, making the tax credit expansion for illegal aliens cost between $2.025 billion to $2.43 billion a year. Other estimates put the total number of illegal children residing in the United States at more than 800,000.

Families, regardless of their legal status, would be eligible to receive checks of $3,600 per year per child. The Democratic bill would amount to a universal basic income for parents residing in the country. Under U.S. law, illegal immigrants are barred from enjoying the benefits of federal entitlements.

Democrats are trying to advance an amnesty provision into the budget reconciliation bill, a process reserved for budgetary matters. Congressional Democrats have argued that granting legal status to millions of illegal aliens would add $139.6 billion to the budget deficit by 2032 due to their increased use of welfare programs. The Senate parliamentarian ruled in September that Democrats cannot include a road to citizenship for illegals in their bill, although party leaders have vowed to keep fighting for its inclusion.

The handout exceeds the per capita income in a lot of the immigrants’ home countries.

I get sick of these underhanded pork barrel bills signed into law, where what you think you see AIN’T what you get, loaded with provisions that have ZERO to do with the title and declared intent of the bill. I hope the Lord sends the pathological liars that betray the public trust into the lake of fire, the ‘special place for liars.’ .

Of course they do. They need to make 20 million Illegals into Democrats before the next election. Why bother, they can just pay China to rig the election like they did last time.

That is the reason all bills should be posted in their entire form, no ad-dons allowed. Posted on social media with the signatures in full view for the citizens who pay for these bills to see in their true form. If the two bills sign by Biden to tax socials security had had some publicity he might not be so famous today. We might have gotten rid of him a long time ago..
