You can bet most of the illegal aliens in this country will be making a beeline for New York. From Kyle Becker at beckernews.com:
The State of New York has passed a new budget with major tax increases that will only drive more business from the declining state.
It is also carving out billions to cut one-time checks for illegal immigrants who lost work due to the state’s lockdowns.
The size of the checks? Over ten times that given to Americans in the last round of stimulus sent out by the Biden administration.
The bill includes $2.1 billion fund to provide “one-time payments for undocumented workers who did not qualify for federal stimulus checks or unemployment benefits,” the New York Times reported, “according to budget highlights released by the governor’s office.”
“New York will now offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost work during the pandemic,” the report continued. “The effort — a $2.1 billion fund in the state budget — is by far the biggest of its kind in the country and a sign of the state’s shift toward policies championed by progressive Democrats.”
The last round of “stimulus” payments sent to under the Biden administration’s plan began to be issued on Friday.“That brings the total disbursed payments from the latest stimulus package to more than 156 million payments, worth about $372 billion,” reported USA Today. “The payments, which total up to $1,400 each per individual, were distributed mostly by direct deposits and paper checks.”
