New York Will Offer One-Time Payments of Up to $15,600 to Illegal Aliens Who Lost Work During Pandemic
New York lawmakers carved out a $2.1 billion Covid fund for illegal aliens who lost work during the pandemic.
This is by far the largest in the country and dwarfed California’s $75 million give away to illegals last year.
The fund is part of a larger state budget agreement that will offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to illegals.
In order to receive the money, illegal aliens must prove they are New York residents who were eligible for Covid stimulus checks but didn’t receive one due to their immigration status.
If the illegal alien is unable to provide any kind of documentation, they will still be given $3,200 – the same amount of money Americans were given in Covid stimulus checks approved by Congress.
According to the Pew Research Center, there are approximately 750,000 illegal aliens living in New York state.
Fox News reported:
New York lawmakers struck a deal this week to establish a $2.1 billion coronavirus relief fund for undocumented immigrants and other unemployed workers who were ineligible for federal aid during the pandemic.
The fund, which was announced as part of a broader $212 billion state budget agreement, will offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost their jobs during the virus-induced crisis.
“This nation’s economy has long been built on the backs of our undocumented workforce, and their essential labor that has helped keep our nation running throughout this pandemic,” New York State Sen. Jessica Ramos, a proponent of the fund, said in a statement.
