On Thursday, far-left socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to whine about the stimulus package and how it does not provide cash payments to illegal aliens.
The Senate unanimously passed the coronavirus stimulus package on Wednesday which will provide individuals, small businesses and larger corporations with the cash they need to make it through these tough times. The purpose of the stimulus is to hold up the American economy as we fight off the coronavirus.
Ocasio-Cortez however, thinks that the stimulus should provide illegal aliens with cash as well.
“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.”
The socialist continued by pushing a conspiracy theory that the Trump administration as well as Senate Republicans are holding hospitals and workers "hostage."
"What Trump + Senate GOP have done is hold hospitals, working people, and the vulnerable hostage so they could get in $500 billion (that will be leveraged into $4T) in corporate welfare. Without the Wall St giveaway, GOP refuses to fund hospitals & unemployment. It’s inhumane," she tweeted.
While Ocasio-Cortez focuses on helping illegal aliens, the Trump administration is focused on helping out the American people.
On Thursday morning, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin revealed that American citizens should receive their stimulus check via direct deposit in the next three weeks.
"Mnuchin’s comments come a day after the Senate unanimously approved a $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package that includes a $1,200 payment to single Americans who make less than $75,000 a year, $2,400 for families that make under $150,000 a year, and $500 for each child under the age of 17," the Daily Wire reports. "The bill is expected to pass the House and be signed into law by President Donald Trump in the near future."
“First of all, most of these will be direct deposit, so we call them checks in the mail, but most of them will be direct deposits, it will be within three weeks,” Mnuchin said to CNBC’s Jim Cramer. We’re determined to get money in people’s pocket immediately. So that will be within three weeks.”
Mnuchin continued by stating that he hopes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will quickly sign the bill so that the American people can get their checks.
“I would hope that the House passes this unanimously,” Mnuchin said. “I’ve already reached out to the speaker and to Kevin McCarthy on the sense of urgency.”
