The Senate approved an amendment by Todd Young and Tom Cotton to block illegal immigrants from receiving stimulus checks.
“Economic Impact Payments were intended to provide a lifeline to Americans struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic. They were not intended for people who are in our country illegally. Our amendment would ensure that people who break our immigration laws aren’t receiving taxpayer-funded handouts.” – Todd Young
Todd’s efforts were supported by all 50 Republican senators and 8 Democrats.
