Florida Senator Rick Scott slammed New York and their plan to pay illegal immigrants who lost work due to COVID-19 up to $15,6000. Seriously? They are illegal, they shouldn’t be working in the United Sates to begin with! Are Democrats really so dense?
State lawmakers have already approved the one-time payments, and set up a $2.1 billion fund to use.
So United States citizens are worth a couple thousand dollars to our government but illegal immigrants are worth almost $16,000!?
A statement from Scott’s office noted New York is using funding it received from President Joe Biden’s "wasteful, untargeted $1.9 trillion ‘COVID’ spending bill, which dedicated less than 10% of its overall price tag to fighting COVID-19, and included $360 billion for state and local bailouts that predominantly benefit liberal states."
Scott said, "The federal government should reimburse states and local governments for expenses related to COVID-19 response, but it is irresponsible and reckless of Biden and the Democrats to take billions from American taxpayers and use it for handouts so liberal politicians like (Gov.) Andrew Cuomo in New York can fund their radical priorities.
"New York’s decision to take taxpayer money from citizens of fiscally responsible states like Florida and send $15,600 checks to illegal aliens is unfathomable. It is a disgusting and shameful misuse of taxpayer dollars. Every American should be outraged that Joe Biden and New York liberals are using their taxpayer money to flout our laws,” he continued.
Scott added, "Andrew Cuomo and Democrats in New York must answer to American taxpayers on how this is even legal. As our nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, this insane plan cannot be allowed to move forward."
In a tweet, Scott added: "Democrats pass a massive 2T ‘COVID’ spending bill with $360B for blue state bailouts and this is the result: @NYGovCutomo spends $2B of the ‘COVID’ funds cutting checks to illegal aliens. This is a shameful misuse of tax dollars and I won’t stand for it."
Under New York’s plans, those undocumented immigrants who lost work can get up to $15,600 – an amount equal to $300 a week for the past year, according to The New York Times. They would have to verify that they were residents of the state, lost income as a result of the pandemic, and were eligible for federal unemployment benefits
And others who can prove at least their residency and identity, and can show some work documentation, could get as much as $3,200.
Wait, I though identification was racist? The left picks and chooses what to be upset about and make up the rules as they go.

Just another day in the day and age of cancel culture! Today they are cancelling the children’s book series “Captain Underpants.” The books are being pulled from libraries and book shelves after its publishes declared it “perpetuates passive racism.”
I read those books when I was in middle school, and I truly do not remember anything in them that could even be close to racist. Then again, everything today is racist. Just the character wearing white underwear is probably “racist” to the left.
