Democrats Pass $3 Trillion Bill That Gives Money to Illegals Amid COVID-19 Fallout
The bill is the most expensive legislation approved in history by that body
House Democrats on Friday passed a $3 trillion spending bill, which is the most expensive legislation approved by that body in history.
But as America struggles to get back on its feet following the devastating coronavirus fallout, the bill aims to divert much of the needed money to illegal aliens.
The bill, which passed by a 208-199 vote, saw fourteen Democrats push back and voted "no," while one Republican, Rep. Pete King of New York, voted “yes.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was "thrilled" following the bill's passage.
"I'm so proud of my members," Pelosi said.
"They just did something so monumental for the American people -- for their health, for their lives, for their livelihood, and for our democracy. We couldn’t be more thrilled."
But Illegal aliens without social security numbers, “can still file taxes with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)," as per Fox News.
“These ITIN filers could receive the full $1,200 under the Democrats’ new plan.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted House Democrats over the bill, calling it a “parade of absurdities.”
McConnell tweeted posting a clip of his appearance Thursday night on Fox News:
“The Democrats’ supposed coronavirus bill includes taxpayer-funded studies to measure “diversity and inclusion” in the cannabis industry. It’s a parade of absurdities that can hardly be taken seriously."

Insider newsletter, Politico Playbook, wrote this bout Pelosi’s bill:
“It’s not been through a single congressional committee. And it’s caught flak from both moderates and liberals in the caucus. It’s a messaging bill.”
The $3 trillion stimulus package includes huge tax breaks for wealthy elites.
The “Heroes Act” gives $100,000 on average to people who make more than $1 million a year.
The 1,815-page package revokes the $10,000 state and local tax deduction (SALT) cap, which allows taxpayers in high-tax states to deduct local tax payments on federal tax returns.
Additionally, the bill would also push a mass mail-in voting scheme, which won't require voting ID.
Even left-wing ProPublica wrote:
“There is bipartisan consensus that mail-in ballots are the form of voting most vulnerable to fraud. A 2005 commission led by President Jimmy Carter and James A. Baker III — George W. Bush’s secretary of state — concluded that these ballots ‘remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.’”
Acting Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said the bill was essential “amnesty” for illegal aliens.
“Is it really a good idea to not only grant an amnesty to illegal aliens but to absolve employers who have been breaking the law in the last few months?” Cuccinelli tweeted.
“I don’t think so!”

“These pages of the proposed bill create a deferred action program for aliens based on the CISA essential workforce list. Granting both deferred action and employment authorization. The aliens wouldn’t even have to apply for an EAD or deferred action; they get it automatically.”
