Ted Cruz Amendment Blocks Illegal Aliens from Receiving COVID Stimulus Checks

Cruz says current bill hands out billions in taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants

If not blocked, the package includes $1,400 stimulus checks that could go to illegal aliens.

An amendment by Republican Sen. Ted Cruz to the COVID-19 relief package would ensure illegal aliens living in the U.S. are not awarded stimulus checks.

Without any GOP support, Senate Democrats opened debate on the $1.9 trillion relief package, which will go back to the House for approval if the legislation is passed by the Senate.

If not blocked, the package includes $1,400 stimulus checks that could go to illegal aliens.

Sen. Cruz is now seeking to prevent illegal aliens from getting stimulus checks, which would save American taxpayers nearly $8 billion.

Cruz said in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News:

“Not only does this COVID bill fail to address the real needs of the American people who are suffering, but it hands out billions in taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants."

“Congress should come together to pass my amendment to stop this,” Cruz said.

“We need to stand for the American people, get our kids back to school, and reopen our small businesses.”

Illegal aliens could secure subsidies for COBRA healthcare premiums under the package’s current form.

Earlier this week, a Republican congressman has exposed the wasteful spending in the Democrats' massive $1.9 trillion "COVID" relief package by proposing $10,000 stimulus checks for every American.

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) introduced an amendment proposing an increase to the stimulus check amount, taking the payouts to $10,000 for individuals and $20,000 for married couples.

The proposal sought to highlight the wasteful spending being pushed by the Democratic Party.

The Democrats' bill is filled with items completely unrelated to coronavirus-related relief.

Specifically, Gosar sought to eliminate spending for:

Farm loan assistance for socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers

National Endowment for the Art

National Endowment for the Humanities

Institute of Museum and Library Services

So-called "Vaccine confidence activities"

"Global health" initiatives

Family planning

Capital investment grants

National Railroad Passenger Corporation grants

Special financial assistance program for financially troubled multi-employer plans
