Ilhan Omar left Americans speechless with her response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Minnesota Congresswoman is not looking to return the economy and American way of life back to normal.
Instead, Ilhan Omar threw down one ultimatum that could lead to this illegal alien bailout.
Omar and other pro-open borders leftists complained far and wide about the fact that the last coronavirus relief package banned illegal aliens from receiving a $1,200 check from the federal government by requiting Americans to possess a valid social security number as one requirement for eligibility.
“The CARES Act provides a one-time stimulus payment of $1200 for most adults and $500 for children under the age of 17. In order to receive payment, the CARES Act requires identification in the form of a Social Security Number (SSN). Under current statute, married couples filing jointly with any non-SSN identification will not be eligible for the stimulus payment,” Omar wrote in a statement.
“It is absurd and cruel that a taxpaying, mixed status couple or family could be excluded from this relief,” Omar continued. “Over 140,000 Minnesotans live in mixed status families of some form. As currently written, many Minnesotans who are in this country legally or part of a mixed status family will not receive any stimulus money, even if one of them has a social security number but the other does not.”
Omar then proposed expanding the direct cash assistance program to include illegal aliens.
“The Recovery Rebates Improvement Act will expand the eligibility requirement to ensure joint tax filers with one SSN will receive payment and provide more people with vital economic assistance. Comprehensive legislation is needed in the next package to ensure that all noncitizens, whether holding a SSN or not, can access these relief payments,” Omar continued.
Leftists like Omar fumed over the last coronavirus relief package did not include socialist wish list items like a so-called “Green New Deal”, universal mail-in voting and abortion funding.
Omar is drawing a line in the sand for House Speaker Pelosi in the next round of negotiations.
Speaker Pelosi will not move a bill unless it has broad support within the Democrat caucus.
If Omar and other liberals hold out over the fact that a “phase four” coronavirus relief package is not a socialist giveaway it could complicate the legislation’s prospects.
In the meantime, small businesses will continue to shed jobs in the millions and destroy lives.
Omar and her allies don’t care about that fact.
Ilhan Omar’s top priority is amnesty for illegal aliens and creating as many new Democrat voters as possible.
Democrats live by the motto that you never let a crisis go to waste.
And there has been no bigger crisis in many Americans lifetime than the economic devastation brought on by government lockdowns to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
