They claimed that in order to bring "transparency" back to government, Americans must elect Joe Biden. And Biden himself promised transparency on the campaign trail.
But Democrats, in nearly every case, do exactly the opposite of what they claim to want or support, so it comes as no surprise that the current majority party in Congress is trying to pay off its next major constituency with your tax dollars: Illegal aliens.
"President Joe Biden’s budget includes a provision that provides billions of dollars in cash to illegal aliens with children," the Washington Free Beacon reported this week, revealing the existence of the spending provision, adding:
The $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill extends the Child Tax Credit to anyone in the United States who provides an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, overturning a crucial safeguard against fraud. Federal law required a valid Social Security number to receive the cash transfer from the federal government. The potential payout for illegal immigrants is massive, with each family receiving a monthly payment of $250 to $300 per child.
A survey from the Pew Research Center found that roughly 675,000 children are not eligible for a Social Security number, making the tax credit expansion for illegal aliens cost between $2.025 billion to $2.43 billion a year. Other estimates put the total number of illegal children residing in the United States at more than 800,000.
The measure will see all families, even if they are in our country illegally, qualify for $3,600 per year, per child, and these are direct cash payments. So in other words, Democrats will be creating another massive, expensive entitlement program that will go on forever, and serve as a magnet for massive amounts of illegal immigrants to violate our sovereignty and our border security laws so they can come get some 'free money' too.
Under current U.S. law, illegal aliens are barred from receiving federal benefits; that will all change under this measure if it passes.
"Democrats are trying to advance an amnesty provision into the budget reconciliation bill, a process reserved for budgetary matters," the Free Beacon noted further. "Congressional Democrats have argued that granting legal status to millions of illegal aliens would add $139.6 billion to the budget deficit by 2032 due to their increased use of welfare programs. The Senate parliamentarian ruled in September that Democrats cannot include a road to citizenship for illegals in their bill, although party leaders have vowed to keep fighting for its inclusion."
But now the craziest of the left-wing Democrats are urging Senate leaders to ignore the parliamentarian's decision and have Vice President Kamala Harris, as presiding officer, overrule her and say that the provision can be added to the reconciliation bill -- because when Dems can't get their way following the rules, they change the rules, or they ignore them.
Samual Hammond, a welfare policy expert, told the Free Beacon that the potential benefits that would be paid out to illegal aliens under the expanded Child Tax Credit provision would be more than the annual per capita income in their home countries.
"Consider that the value of the CTC for an infant child is now $3,600 per year. That alone represents 40 percent of Colombia’s per capita income, and nearly 120 percent of Haiti’s. This is why countries with unconditional welfare benefits also tend to have relatively restrictive immigration laws," Hammond wrote in American Compass. "America’s historical openness to immigration, in contrast, has in large part been enabled by rules and program structures that minimize the fiscal cost of lower wage migrants."
It's obvious that the mindless Joe Biden's regime is being managed by Marxists who are willing to destroy the fabric of society in exchange for perpetual power.
