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.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
