Like Barack Obama once told us, elections have consequences. And if New Yorkers continue to elect far-left radicals like Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo, this sort of stuff will keep on happening.
$15,000 for each illegal alien living in New York, huh?
Wonder if Mexico treats its illegals this way.
When the coronavirus arrived in New York City a year ago, it hit enclaves of undocumented immigrants with a fury, killing thousands and wiping out the service and construction jobs that kept many families afloat.Trending:
Lifelines like unemployment insurance and federal stimulus checks were out of reach because undocumented people are ineligible for most government aid. Instead, they have relied on food pantries, lenient landlords and loans from friends.
But after a sweeping move by lawmakers this week, New York will now offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost work during the pandemic. The effort — a $2.1 billion fund in the state budget — is by far the biggest of its kind in the country and a sign of the state’s shift toward policies championed by progressive Democrats.
The excluded workers fund, part of the state’s new $212 billion budget deal that was reached on Tuesday, was one of the most contentious points of debate during negotiations, which dragged on past the April 1 deadline.
New York is doing it’s part to implement Joe Biden’s ‘America Last’ Plan. https://t.co/diZRHYTSmN
