Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Upset Cash Relief Does Not Extend to Noncitizens

By  | 

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed outrage on Thursday that the cash payment portion of the economic relief package, which the Senate unanimously passed Wednesday night, does not extend to noncitizens.

The Senate unanimously approved of the historic coronavirus emergency relief measure on Wednesday evening after days of partisan battles. As many Republican leaders have stated, the passed bill remains virtually the same as the original bill Democrats rejected on Sunday. It provides aid for small businesses, creates a lending aid program, and delivers cash assistance directly into the pockets of American citizens.

The bill will provide most American adults with $1,200, $500 of which is for most children. Ocasio-Cortez, however, is taking issue with the stipulations — specifically, the requirement of a Social Security number.

“To clarify, $1200 checks are ONLY going to some w/social sec numbers, NOT immigrants w/ tax IDs (ITINs),” she wrote following the Senate’s unanimous 96-0 approval of the bill,” adding, “Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing.”:

Ocasio-Cortez’s complaint extends to those who are residing in the country illegally, as illegal immigrants can also obtain an ITIN.

The Tax Policy Center found that the vast majority of American households, roughly 90 percent, will benefit from the checks.

The New York lawmaker also proclaimed the GOP is refusing to fund hospitals or unemployment, despite the fact that the bipartisan bill provides $100 billion for hospitals and the vast expansion of unemployment benefits:

The House is expected to vote on the bill on Friday.

“On Friday, the House will take up the legislation with strong bipartisan support,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, crediting Democrats for revamping the bill — a claim House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called an “outright lie“:

“She added $24 million more dollars to the Kennedy Center. I happen to sit on the board. I support the Kennedy Center, but this is not the place and time to hold a bill up for the health care of America to provide money for the Kennedy Center,” he said during a press conference on Thursday.

“That was wrong, but that’s what her win was. It didn’t extend any of the unemployment insurance. That was already decided on Sunday,” he added.

      Exactly, she should have been kicke3d out of office long ago but I guess the deep state has ways of getting these traitorous bitches in office all 4 if you count Pelosi being able to keep her seat. Even ones with SS# doesn’t mean they are legal and deserve anything, most if not all are illegal since Obama was in office. I could pay a few hundred $$ and have a Drivers license and social security card made up to perfectly match any state along with the floating holograms on the licenses, hell there are outfits that make a killing doing this while they ruin our country.

      Love your comment. Your right her and the other ones who are part of her SWAMP squad need to get the hell out of our government and our country, stay out. I am already pissed about the 25 million going to Congress and then the other monies that is going to the immigration. Those in DC forget they work for us not the other way around. This is the taxpayers money that is paying for all of this in one way or another. I have never known anyone to get something free without some kind of strings attached to it. I hope soon, we can get back to some kind of normalization in this country and people will be able to get back to work as soon as possible.

      We the people need to push Trump for term limits, it is time for the lifers like this witch to since they have become rich off of us and never lifted a finger to do anything for the American people. Time for us to stand and vote them all out of office and make room for people with the American people as their soul interest. When we prosper they prosper and that is how it should be, if politicians can’t help the people prosper than they do no prosper.
      I need to sit down and write a few letter (not that they will be read), the credit cards that the politicians carry with we the people’s name on them need to be canceled aND THE POLITICIANS ALL NEED TO PAY FOR THEIR HOUSES,CARS AND AYTHING ELSE THEY NEED TO LIVE WITH THE MONEY THEY MAKE FROM THEIR OVER INFLATED PAYCHECK, IT IS ALSO TIME FOR THEM TO START EARNING WHAT THEY DESERVE WHICH IS NO MORE THAN $80,000 TO $100,000 and as far as I am concerned that is to much. All the CIA, FBI etc….feds need to take pay cuts, if you don’t like your job after that get the hell out!!!!

        I have to take you to task over term limits that would require a amendment to the constitution. Also AOC is not a lifer as this is her first and (hopefully) last term her district will be going away once the Census make it official that there is a loss of population in NYC.

    I could see tax paying immigrant to receive a tax benefit. I am confused on matter of illegal immigrant but has a tax id. She is part of a system that doesn’t make sense. I have a hard time understanding illegal immigrant but was granted a legal document.

    • LESLEY

      March 27, 2020 at 8:59 am

      No illegal immigrant should have anything, illegal means against the law, if you and I did something that stated it was illegal we would be locked up. Legal immigrants are given papers to work in the US but have to go back to their country every so often and have to have papers renewed but hell some get over here that way and never go back and then they are sending most of the money they make back to Mexico.

    If only the Democratic house took the fluff & pork out of the stimulus bill there would be more money for the people & businesses that really need it. I do not know of too many Americans that really care about the Kennedy Center for the Arts. Shameful….and ridiculous.

    Why should illegal persons get this money. Most them get free health care and other benefit that natural Americans don’t get. What has she donated to this cause. They all should be ashamed of themselves for holding the bill up so long. Ihope the people of her distric vote her out.

    Give illegals money meant for American citizens and even the walls at the border won’t keep them out. $1200.00 free money will be a hell of an incentive to cross into America any way you can. Furthermore, illegals already here are getting more free aide than any American citizen is elegible for, not to mention the free get out of jail pass for any crime, and that’s just plain WRONG.

    If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is really Upset Cash Relief Does Not Extend to Noncitizens, I think that she, first of all, should transfer her personal millions of dollars to Noncitizens and start raising funds in favor of Noncitizens, instead of stopping the country from fighting coronavirus.

    New York has the majority of the virus cases now, and her answer is to open borders, bring in more illegals, and give them checks!
