While Americans are struggling paying their bills, illegal immigrants will be receiving billions of dollars worth of stimulus checks.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, millions of illegal immigrants will be receiving the checks.
“We estimate that there are 2.65 million illegal immigrants who have Social Security numbers that allow them to receive stimulus checks,” said Steven Camarota, director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies. “We estimate that 2.1 million of these individuals have incomes low enough to qualify for checks, and they have 1.1 million U.S.-born dependent children.
“As a result, illegal immigrants could receive an estimated $4.38 billion in cash payments from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021,” said Camarota.
Illegal immigrants have been able to get social security numbers due to Democrat programs, such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Some use expired or stolen Social Security numbers.
“It is clear that the decision to create programs and give work authorization and Social Security numbers to millions of people who are in the country illegally has consequences, not the least of which is that billions of dollars from public coffers will be flowing to illegal immigrants,” said Camarota.
