Today during an interview on the Fox Business channel, Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin released the Trump Administration’s plan to directly put cash into the hands of American families who are being harmed by the current Chinese Virus pandemic.
“This is an unprecedented situation, where for good reason the government has instructed major parts of the economy to close down so that we can win this fight against this virus,” remarked Secretary Mnuchin.
“We understand that there are impacts on hardworking Americans and the President is determined that we are going to support that. So we have announced a trillion dollar plan. The part of this is three hundred billion dollars that goes to small businesses. That money needs to go to hiring people, keeping people on the payroll, and if they do there will be loan forgiveness on that afterwards…The second component is, well I referred to it as ‘checks in the mail’ but it really is ‘money directly deposited’, the plan is five hundred billion dollars….a thousand dollars per person and five hundred dollars per child. So for a family of four that is a three thousand dollar payment and as soon as Congress passes this we can get it out in three weeks and six weeks later if the President still has a national emergency we will deliver another three thousand dollars.”
The President’s administration has made clear that direct payments would go to U.S. citizens only, and would be “tiered based on income level and family size.”
President Trump’s efforts to put cash directly into the hands of Americans who are being affected by the Chinese Virus outbreak has landed him some non-traditional allies; Andrew Yang who made Universal Basic Income the cornerstone of his presidential campaign said “I am thrilled that they are doing the right thing”, and Democratic Congresswoman from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard said it is ‘good news’ that President Trump is speaking out in support of direct cash payment to every American.
The broadly supported bipartisan plan that is being led by President Trump for direct cash relief is finding some opposition, most recently from Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
