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

I'm sorry. My husband and I are citizens and the relief does not extend to us. So we should pay for the illegals anyway? Just once, I would like to actually be the beneficiary of some government stimulus instead of being the one paying for it. And no, we aren't rich!

So, why doesn't the Dim Party use its vast resources -- including the recent $18M donated by Bloomberg -- to provide relief to illegals?? Maybe Sanders can sell a couple of his houses and help pitch in, too.

Only U.S. citizens (and I believe, legal resident aliens) who have Social Security numbers, will receive the payments. AOC sure has faded from view, mercifully. And where does the Wise Latina Princess think payments to illegals should be sent? Direct-deposited to their non-existent bank accounts, or by checks mailed to their "addresses"? Her 15 minutes of fame - or infamy - have long since passed,

Hey Sandy! Here's an idea that will work. You can start a non-profit to help the illegals. You seek donations from people without the tapping government coffers. Then you can give away the donated money. You can do it!

I believe that legal resident aliens ( green card holders) are included in the bailout bill to get tax rebates as they are legally in the country, can legally be employed, and have social security numbers. Illegal aliens who are being employed unlawfully in the country either complete “under the table” with while using either bogus social security and ID documents, or with someone else’s social security and ID documents are not included in the bailout, at least at this point. There are also a lot of illegal aliens in the country or are engaged in criminal activity who are not included in the bailout. Who knows what Pelosi and the leftist and liberal Democrats will try to stick in the House bill tomorrow to aid the illegal alien population. By rights it is the employers who unlawfully employed those illegal aliens who should be giving the illegal aliens the money they need to tide them over the crisis and not the US Government (US taxpayers). Back in history when there were wars or big economic downturns that caused the illegal alien population to become unemployed, large percentages of that population departed from the USA of their own accord and returned to their home countries, usually Mexico or Central America. If the crisis lingers on maybe that will happen again. One thing is for sure, with such massive amounts of money being passed out by the Federal Government, there is bound to be a huge amount of fraud.

This person has been bestowed with WAY TOO MUCH respect by the media, and her ridiculous pandering to the communist interests should disqualify her from serious consideration for just about anything she says being taken seriously. By allowing the unchecked, even if SLOWED illegal access into the body of this country, we are eventually going to be ruined by the unchecked spending and invading forces like the Roman Empire fell. How much longer can we stave off this ruination before IT takes control. All AOC needed was a little over 16,000 votes to become a proverbial thorn in our side and a terd in the punchbowl of our Republic?
