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.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
