Democratic far-left “Squad” member Ayanna Pressley has called on Joe Biden to provide $2,000 monthly payments to both Americans and illegal immigrants and also cancel up to $50,000 in student debt.

Pressley's demands come after Biden said he would “go big” in the next coronavirus relief package.

Pressley responded to comments in a February 10 post from Biden.

“That’s right,” she agreed.

She then listed off two of her primary progressive goals.

“We can cancel at least $50K in student debt right now and send families, including our immigrant neighbors, $2,000 survival checks a month until this crisis is over,” she said.

“Let’s make it happen,” she added.

Pressley and other progressive lawmakers signed a letter urging Biden to include recurring payments in any future coronavirus relief proposals.

“Recurring direct payments until the economy recovers will help ensure that people can meet their basic needs, provide racially equitable solutions, and shorten the length of the recession,” the letter, led by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), reads.

“As we look at the coming year, another one-time round of checks would provide a temporary lifeline, but when that money runs out, families will once again struggle to pay for basic necessities,” it continues.

The letter adds checks must extend to “all immigrant workers, refugees, and their families (both ITIN filers and mixed-status households)"

Biden has also demonstrated a willingness to cancel up to $10,000 in student debt, but his proposal does not go far enough for lawmakers like Pressley and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also joined the calls for canceling student debt:

“Today would be a great day for President Biden and Vice President Harris to #CancelStudentDebt”:
