(AmericanPoliticalDaily.Com)- President Donald Trump recently signed the Phase 3 coronavirus economic stimulus bill into law, giving American citizens direct financial aid to help weather the economic storm caused by the ongoing global pandemic. The legislation became a bitter fight when Senate Democrats refused to throw their weight behind it, and instead proposed their own legislation that included a host of unrelated far-left issues.
The Democrats failed to implement Green New Deal policies and the original bipartisan bill originally passed, but it didn’t stop the likes of Rep. Rashida Tlaib and even Sen. Bernie Sanders calling for new legislation that would give illegal immigrants free money. Under Tlaib’s proposed plan, every person (not citizen) would receive $2,000 on a pre-paid debit card and a further $1,000 per month until a year after the pandemic is over.
Bernie Sanders went even further, arguing that everyone in the country should be given $2,000 per month.
On Wednesday, Trump doubled down on his refusal to give aid to illegal aliens living in the United States.
“Well, you know, you are saying undocumented, meaning they came in illegally,” the president said. “A lot of people would say that we have a lot of citizens right now that won’t be working, so what are you going to do?”
The president even explained that he feels sad for the illegal immigrants in the country because it’s such a tough situation, but reiterated the fact that those people shouldn’t be in the country in the first place.
“It’s a very sad question, I must be honest with you, but they came in illegally and we have a lot of people that are citizens in our country that won’t be able to have jobs,” Trump explained.
The president also offered some hope that his administration would work hard on rebuilding the economy after the virus has finished sweeping across the country.
“It’s a really sad situation and it’s something we’re working on,” Trump said.
President Trump has been clear from the beginning that he would welcome immigrants legally but work to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the country. Perhaps the economic chaos and uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic might finally be what proves to the Democrats that having strict border policy is what protects American jobs
