Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) has admitted that she and her Democratic colleagues have been blocking legislation that would give much-needed aid to small business workers.

Jayapal said the reason for blocking the legislation was to gain "political leverage."

But ultimately it didn't work.

The congresswoman made the comments during a virtual news conference with fellow progressive lawmakers and activists on Monday.

Jayapal, along with her fellow lawmakers and activists, pushed for illegal immigrants to be included in the next round of coronavirus relief.

"We don't know what's in the package yet, we only know what's been reported," Jayapal said during the #PutPeopleFirst conference.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Democratic leaders abandoned a number of their "unrelated demands."

Here were some of the far left Demands:

  • Relief money for illegal aliens
  • Early prison release for jailed criminals
  • Abortion funding
  • Permanent housing guarantees
  • Mail-in voting for elections
  • Minimum wage hikes and more union access, and an extensive national disease surveillance program.

Last week, fifteen House Democrats broke ranks against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's refusal to replenish the small business relief fund.

Earlier this week, Breitbart News reported the George Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice submitted a letter to the governors of all fifty states urging them to use executive action to “release as many people as possible from incarceration” due to coronavirus fears “provided they do not pose serious public safety threats.”
