Illegals demand $1,200 checks from Americans and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez steps up to the plate for them

If you live in a world where American citizenship means nothing, it might seem pretty logical to cut $1,200 checks to anyone who can make it across the border to collect them.

So now the braying begins about also handing out $1,200 checks to the 22 million illegal aliens currently in the states. Advocates don't think the checks should stop at Americans or legal residents. 

Here's the Breitbart report:

Illegal aliens are demanding they too receive $1,200 in federal checks from the government as part of a Chinese coronavirus crisis relief package.

Open borders organizations like the George Soros-funded United We Dream, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and the National Immigration Law Center — all of which represent the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States — are pleading with the federal government to cut federal checks to illegal aliens who have Individual Tax Identification Number (ITINs).

Here's the congressional champion of the idea from that "dead" congressional district with 9% voter turnout based on its huge base of illegals who are not, legally at least, able to vote.

 

 

Which for illegals, is quite a pretty penny. Yes, there probably are illegals who can use those checks here. Think of how many there are in the restaurant, and low-paid services industries which are the hardest hit.

But the $1,200 checks also are roughly equal to the entire annual salary of a worker from Cambodia, so if you're an illegal here from that country, it's a free year without work, you can fly home and live high on the hog for a full year, or send it to someone back home and give them a year's vacation. It's close to the same from Ethiopia and Pakistan, both of which send illegals here in large numbers. It's about two months' salary of the average worker from Mexico, and when you consider that the average illegal from that country has far lower skills as well as earning power of the average Mexican, it's quite a bit of the year free from worry about work, too.

The normal response of illegals in a downturn is to head back home. This is a move by the illegals-industrial-complex to keep them and institutionalize them here, citizenship be damned, but for heavens sake, keep George Washington on the payments, don't bother with some global bitcoin currency from the United Nations. The money is billed as "free" but actually it's not free. Those of us here legally pay for it. Those who take, who aren't here legally, have no obligation to spend it in the U.S. economy to revive it, which is its purpose. With no loyalty to the U.S. they can just as easily ship it back home.

But the biggest problem is the advocates who are calling for this bad idea. They're the ones who "need" illegals - to serve as funding justification for their NGOs or else as fodder for their low-turnout congressional districts -- who continuously encourage people to stay illegal, given the cash it draws for their organizations to "serve" them. That $350 million in the stimulus bill just passed for "immigrant and refugee services" is just that.

 

Instead of calling on their left-wing congressional buddies to increase immigration quotas, which Congress has the power to do, or, to make it easier for people to immigrate, certainly something that ought to be do-able for illegal immigrants in genuinely necessary jobs such as farm work, they prefer to nullify citizenship entirely as an idea, blurring the distinction between legal and illegal, and demanding taxpayers to fork out the checks to all comers. 

The whole proposal, if they get their way, passing maybe as a supplementary measure, would tack $26.4 billion onto the current stimulus bill, free of charge to illegals from U.S. taxpayers. It would amount to an incentives to illegals to pay the cartels to come on through, bringing in a new wave of border surges. Something like that would make those checks effectively a subsidy for Mexico's drug cartels.

This isn't really about illegals. It's about empowering left wing lawyers and their Democrat patrons who gain so much from illegal immigration. And they're willing to junk citizenship as having any meaning to do it. To heck with that.
