Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expressed her outrage on Twitter on Thursday that the cash payment from the coronavirus relief package will not go to illegal aliens as well as American citizens.
“To clarify, $1200 checks are ONLY going to some w/social sec numbers, NOT immigrants w/tax IDs (ITINs),” she tweeted. “Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing. Many are essential workers who pay more taxes than Amazon. Wall St gets $4T.”
In a separate tweet, she wrote, “What Trump + Senate GOP have done is hold hospitals, working people, and the vulnerable hostage so they could get in $500 billion (that will be leveraged into $4T) in corporate welfare. Without the Wall St giveaway, GOP refuses to fund hospitals & unemployment. It’s inhumane.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s rant is just the usual demagogic class warfare waged by leftist Democrats, who always prioritize their potential voting bloc of illegal aliens at the expense of American citizens.
