Democrats Put Immigrants Before Real Americans For Stimulus Package

More News For You

While many Americans are out of work due to the mandatory shut-down, the question on everyone’s minds is when will they receive their stimulus check. However, there are going to be some very disappointed people out there as many will not receive the money they are expecting.

A lot of people will fall through the cracks of the stimulus package and will be receiving very little if any money at all due to some eligibility disqualifications.

According to NBC News, there are many categories you could fall into that will cause you to not receive a check.

For millions of Americans awaiting coronavirus cash, help is not on the way.

Although the $2 trillion stimulus bill passed last month includes payments of up to $1,200 for everyone who makes less than the limit, many Americans will fall through the cracks. That includes most college kids, immigrants without Social Security numbers and some disabled adults.

Why so many gaps? Part of it is the urgency that faced Congress as it rushed to get money to Americans as fast as possible. There wasn’t much time to fine-tune the bill to address every contingency. Lawmakers opted to base eligibility on tax returns, even though many people don’t file them.

Congress also wanted to ensure that the money goes to those who really need it now. Most Americans could use some extra cash even in the best of times. But some people’s livelihoods have been more directly affected by the pandemic than others.

For those who qualify, payments will start going out from the IRS in mid-April. The IRS is using 2019 tax returns to determine eligibility or 2018 returns for those who haven’t filed for 2019 yet.

Here’s a look at who falls through the cracks:

  • College Students and 17-year-olds

  • Disabled people whose parents support them

  • Seniors living with their kids

  • Immigrants without Social Security numbers

  • Babys born in 2020

  • High earners who lost their jobs

  • Parents who split custody

  • Recently divorced or estranged

  • People who owe back child support

Of course, Democrats are trying to fit some of these into their own agenda and fighting for money for immigrants who shouldn’t be here in the first place instead of Americans that have been put out of work and really need it.
