“This means the Biden Administration directly subsidized ‘undocumented’ immigration under the guise of COVID-19 pandemic relief.”

I’m not shocked that these blue states and cities have used the money specifically for COVID-19 to handle illegal immigrants.

You wanted to be a sanctuary state and city:

    According to a Fox News Digital review of state and local programs, Democrat governors and mayors earmarked at least $517 million for the programs, which generally consisted of providing cash payments to individual illegal immigrants. The funding reviewed by Fox News Digital was drawn from the American Rescue Plan (ARP), the $1.9 trillion federal COVID-19 stimulus package President Biden signed into law in March 2021.

    “This means the Biden Administration directly subsidized ‘undocumented’ immigration under the guise of COVID-19 pandemic relief,” a recent report from the Economic Policy Innovation Center stated, pointing to how federal ARP funds were diverted to illegal immigrants in Washington state.

    Overall, in addition to Washington, Fox News Digital identified such a funding mechanism in Illinois and New Jersey, and the cities of Washington, D.C., Chicago, Denver and Boston. The jurisdictions, in particular, used funding from the ARP’s Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, which was designed to help local governments recover from the pandemic.

We learned two weeks ago that Washington state used $340 million from the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF), which was created by the American Rescue Plan Act, to help illegal immigrants.

The illegal immigrants received $1,000 checks.

Several Democratic states and cities have given more than $500 million of COVID-19 relief funds to illegal immigrants.

Most of the $517 million went to cash payments for immigrants in states including Washington, Illinois, and New Jersey and were drawn from the $1.9 trillion federal COVID-19 relief package, the American Rescue Plan, according to Fox News.

“This means the Biden Administration directly subsidized ‘undocumented’ immigration under the guise of COVID-19 pandemic relief,” according to a recent report from the Economic Policy Innovation Center on the funds in Washington state.

Washington state was the largest contributor and gave cash payments of $3,075 to more than 100,000 undocumented immigrants, according to a 2023 report from the Department of Social and Health Services. The state gave a total of $340 million in ARP funding to the immigrants. ...

I still haven't seen the final price tag of this taxpayer funded slush fund.  When the smoke clears, I am guessing $8T.
