Republicans Get The Help Of A Few Democrats To Restrict Stimulus Checks From Illegal Aliens

Amazingly, the majority of Democrats voted to give your money to illegal aliens, people who are here in violation of federal law. Heck, if we know who they are and where they are we should be deporting them, not giving them money. Per federal law

Swing State Democrats Join Senate Republicans to Block Stimulus Checks for Illegal Aliens

A handful of swing state Senate Democrats joined Senate Republicans on Thursday to add a budget amendment that will help ensure that stimulus checks, funded by American taxpayers, are not given to illegal aliens living in the United States.

Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Todd Young (R-IN) proposed an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2021 Budget that will likely block the inclusion of stimulus checks for illegal aliens in any Chinese coronavirus relief package.

All 50 Senate Republicans supported the amendment, as well as eight swing state Senate Democrats. Those Democrats include Sens. Krysten Sinema (D-AZ), Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Gary Peters (D-MI), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Joe Manchin (D-WV).

“The Biden administration shouldn’t reward illegal immigrants for breaking our laws by giving them checks,” Cotton said in a statement. “Instead of courting foreigners with U.S. taxpayer funds, President Biden should use that money to aid American schools, businesses, and families.”

No, they shouldn’t. Not in the least. Realistically, any Democrat voting to give illegal aliens cash support is violating federal law on providing material support, along with inducing illegals to come to the United States illegally. I guess this is another way for Democrats to bribe illegals so that they vote Democrat if amnesty goes through

The vote is critical for President Joe Biden’s administration because it shows the lack of support in the Senate Democrat caucus for pro-illegal immigration policies — and potentially a DREAM Act-style amnesty — specifically among those who represent swing states and will be up for re-election in 2022 and 2024.

Maybe. I’m not sure I’d read that much into it. Giving checks to illegals is a bad look, but, maybe 1-4 of those Dems would vote against a DREAM style bill, and you’d probably get 2-6 squishy Republicans voting for that bill.

Meanwhile, there was a marathon session of votes yesterday on the COVID relief bill

(Fox News) The “vote-a-rama” in the Senate that started at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday concluded shortly before 6 a.m. Friday after a marathon process in which Republicans forced Democrats to take votes on tough issues for more than 15 hours.

The Senate adopted a budget resolution for coronavirus relief 51-50 with Vice President Harris casting the tie-breaking vote. It’s not a final bill, but allows the Senate to proceed toward a final bill under the budget reconciliation rules, which would let Democrats pass a coronavirus stimulus plan by going around a GOP filibuster as long as their caucus remains united. (snip)

In other amendments during the vote-a-rama, the Senate voted 97-3 to support keeping the U.S. Embassy in Israel in Jerusalem; 50-50 on a failed amendment to support the border wall; 50-50 on a failed amendment supporting the free exercise of religion; 100-0 to oppose the defunding of police; 50-50 on a failed amendment to oppose packing the Supreme Court; 50-50 on a failed amendment opposing stimulus checks for people in prison; 50-50 on a failed amendment opposing the Biden administration’s move to restrict oil and gas leasing on federal lands; 50-50 on a failed amendment opposing a federal carbon tax; 53-47 in favor of an amendment supporting the expansion of health savings accounts; and more.

Interesting. No Democrat wanted to go on the record supporting the defund movement. Further, you got 50 Dems who won’t support the 1st Amendment on free exercise of religion. Looks like Democrats are happy to consider a carbon tax, which will raise your cost of living.

      Hairy, as always, has issues with the truth….

      UndevTrump you had no problem giving stimulus checks to people in prison

      Never heard or saw anyone that advocated this. However, Constitutionally, we still have a duty to protect and take care of those in custody. It is amazing that in your hate you would want prisoners to be treated badly.

      The Bible specifically tells us that we should treat immigrants the same as citizens

      Actually it doesn’t. This is a typical tactic of yours. You try to take the Bible to say something that it does not. The Bible says that people should welcome travelers through the land as guests. That is not the same as immigrants who stay. As for immigrants, the Bible also says that immigrants, if they want to come to the city / town, country, they have to adopt the Jewish religion as well as adopt the customs of the land. If you want to demand that immigrants learn to speak English, etc as part of immigration, that’s fine. But you won’t do that and we all know it.

      In short, you are being a hypocrite as always.

      Teach thinks we shoujd notvwelcime thise who are in most need, only those that can perhaps most benefit us/him

      Teach has never said that and so once again, in your hatred of the truth, you are forced to lie.

      The right is fine with sheltering people that are in need. However, there is a process for that and the left is against that process. And yes, outside of people in need, we should advocate for people who want to immigrate to help the country. Otherwise we become a nation of handouts and people as ignorant as those who live in their basements like you do and demand pizza rolls from their mother.

      You have always had issues with the truth and the only reason is that you hate it. After all, all the left has is hate.

        gitarcarver, that was one of your best responses ever to the highly specious trolls at this site. Kudos!

    Hmmm. It seems as if Congress and the WH are negotiating the relief bill.

    • The Election Was Stolen says:

      I’m still waiting for my $2000 Red Chinese Xiden Flu check. Wife too! A 1.9 TRILLION bill. Guess it costs a lot to steal an election. Paybacks are a bitch Uncle Joe. But it ain’t your money so who cares, right?
