The Federation for American Immigration Reform posted on June 26, 2020 about Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s bill that would give stimulus checks to the families of illegal aliens.

Business Insider covered this bill which would provide stimulus checks to families with illegal aliens who ended up not receiving checks during the first wave of relief.
Rubio introduced the bill on June 25 that would dole aid to mixed-status families with illegal aliens.
The legislation was co-sponsored by Republican Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina. It would let people who filed tax returns with non-citizen spouses to get $1,200 in stimulus checks. These individuals were prohibited from receiving the cash under the CARES Act which was signed into law in March.
“No American should be denied a federal stimulus check because they are married to a foreign national who is not a U.S. citizen,” Rubio declared in a press release. “Amid a global pandemic, we must ensure Americans are receiving the funds appropriated by the federal government to keep families afloat during this national crisis.”
Almost three months ago, Congress and Trump greenlit direct payments up to $1,200 for every American citizen making below $75,000 annually, or $150,000 for couples, provided that they had a Social Security number.
The Social Security number requirement barred many illegal aliens from receiving aid, which was similar to what happened when the Bush administration signed off on stimulus checks in early 2008.
Approximately 15.4 million people in mixed-status families did not receive stimulus checks, per a report from the Migration Policy Institute. In these estimates, there are 1.2 million American citizens married to illegal aliens included.
However, Rubio’s bill wouldn’t allow people with Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers to receive aid, which excludes many illegal aliens who aren’t in mixed-status families.
Democrats have doubled down in their push for government aid to illegals.
Democrats back further stimulus for Americans, which was reflected in the $3 trillion spending package that they passed in the House in May. In this plan, aid recipients would only need to provide an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, which allows illegal aliens to receive federal cash.
Last month, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took Democrats to task for including such measures in their stimulus bill.
“Another round of checks for illegal immigrants. Can you believe it?” the Kentucky Republican declared in a speech on the Senate floor. “We forgot to have the Treasury Department send money to people here illegally. My goodness, what an oversight. Thank goodness Democrats are on the case.”
Once again, Rubio shows his true colors as an open borders booster. The Florida Senator has a long record of being soft on mass migration, especially during his efforts with the Gang of Eight in the Senate to pass amnesty.
No America First patriot should ever trust Rubio.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
