Pelosi’s new coronavirus stimulus proposal provides amnesty and payments for illegal aliens

The latest coronavirus relief proposal from House Democrats is sparking outrage from conservatives after revelations about amnesty protections for illegal immigrants were found buried on page 1,737 of the bill.

The bill, which insulates not only illegal immigrants but also their employers, is a $3 trillion dollar behemoth that House Dems are marketing as a necessary aid to support American families. Masking the hidden amnesty provisions, Democrats are focusing attention on a second round of $1,200 direct deposits that qualified families would receive should the measure pass.

But critics are concerned that the section deferred action is counter to the interests of those families that the bill alleges to protect. Among those critics is Acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli numbers himself among those critics and took to Twitter to highlight the most concerning passages:

Illegal immigrants who are “engaged in essential critical infrastructure labor or services in the United States” will be granted deferred action and allowed to continue participating in the American workforce. Additionally, if the bill is successful, employers who hire these illegal immigrants will no longer be found to be in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

The proposal uses the list of essential services first submitted in March by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and pretty much covers every possible occupation that an illegal could fulfill—factory workers, construction workers, farmhands, delivery drivers, and kitchen cooks would all be protected should the Pelosi-led Democrats have their way.

The bill would also reward and insulate employers who, at a time when the American workforce has been facing unprecedented restrictions, have been illegally hiring foreigners for months.

Lastly, the bill will change the way direct payments are doled out to the public. A Social Security Number would no longer be required in order to qualify for the $1,200 stimulus checks. Instead, an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number would be accepted, enabling almost anyone who pays taxes—regardless of immigration status—to receive the money. Certainly not an “Americans First” proposal.

PEW: Democrats increasingly likely to say US no longer greatest country in the world

In recent years, Democrats have grown increasingly likely to believe that other countries are superior to the United States. In a consistent trend tracked by Pew polling data, this view has grown by an alarming 237% since 2011.

The number is more pronounced among younger Democrats, with nearly half (47%) in the ages 18-29 demographic saying they view other countries as greater than the United States. Just 5% in this demographic view the United States as the best the world has to offer and only 10% of Democrats view the United States as the greatest country in the world.

Among Republicans, the numbers are still disappointing. Only the 65+ demographic has a majority of conservatives viewing the United States as the greatest country in the world, with the youngest demographic polling at just 34%.

Views of how the U.S. compares with other countries have long been divided along partisan lines. But these differences have widened in recent years as Democrats have become more likely to say there are other countries that are better than the U.S. In telephone surveys, the share of Democrats saying this is higher than at any point since the question was first asked by Pew Research Center in 2011, and there has been a corresponding decline in the share saying the U.S. stands above other nations.

Views among Republicans and Republican leaners have held steadier. (It’s important to note that there is a mode effect on this question. Regardless of partisan affiliation, Americans appear less likely to say the U.S. stands above other countries – and more likely to say other countries are better than the U.S. – in surveys conducted online than by phone.)
