Illegal aliens have entered the country illegally. Even if some entered the country legally with visas, those have expired – and they are now breaking the law.
If this were any other country, those individuals would be deported immediately.
However, with the two-party system in the U.S., the bleeding hearts often cancel out common sense. This is when we end up with such things as what’s happening in New Jersey.
New Jersey’s governor, Phil Murphy, has decided that he wants to greet illegal aliens with open arms. Forget about deporting them – he wants to give them $1,000 stimulus checks.
State taxpayers would be the ones responsible for funding this project.
Imagine working hard throughout the pandemic only to have your tax dollars be given to those who have not worked hard – and who aren’t even in the country legally.
Tax dollars should be going toward things like roads, bridges, and education.
Murphy, however, is a bleeding-heart liberal. He acknowledges that there were some who were unable to secure state or federal relief during the COVID-19 crisis.
Since the Biden administration has proven that they’re all about helping illegal immigrants, they believe that they have rights – so much so that they created a hunger strike where they demanded stimulus checks.
People who are in the country illegally are making demands of the country where they have broken immigration laws. How does this make any sense? Oh, wait…we’re dealing with a Democratic-run government at the moment. Common sense flew out the window on Inauguration Day.
Part of the problem is that those in New Jersey are looking at what’s being done for those in New York. Just across the state border, Andrew Cuomo has screwed taxpayers so much so that illegal aliens are getting approximately $15,600 in aid if they can prove that they were ineligible for state and federal aid. That little gift is costing taxpayers a total of $2.1 billion.
Well, if illegal aliens in New York can get that, illegal aliens in New Jersey should get at least $2,000 in stimulus checks (per household), right?
Two wrongs don’t suddenly make a right. New York shouldn’t have done what they did and New Jersey certainly shouldn’t follow suit.
And yet, these are also states crying out for federal funding. So, not only do they feel as though they’re entitled to hand out state taxpayer money to illegal aliens, but they also want to do it with taxpayer dollars collected from all over the country.
No, no, no.
It’s no wonder why Republicans are fighting to prevent states from getting taxpayer dollars if they feel the need to share it with illegal aliens.
The Biden administration has set a dangerous precedent. They’ve proven that they care more about the illegal aliens than the law-abiding American citizens. Why should those who should be getting deported be allowed to stay? It’s only telling everyone else here on a visa that they’re welcome to stay once it’s expired – and even collect stimulus checks while they’re at it.
Too many liberal states are choosing to give more to those who are here illegally than those who are trying to build businesses and boost the entrepreneurial spirit.
Billions of dollars are being handed out to those who have broken immigration laws. Meanwhile, small businesses are closing. Meanwhile, Americans are looking for jobs. Meanwhile, roads are in disrepair. Meanwhile, teachers are being underpaid.
If liberals are looking for a way to spend money, they need to do so in a way that prioritizes Americans. As it stands right now, the only thing that New Jersey and other liberal states are proving is that they have no idea what an American is. They’d rather appease the illegal aliens who don’t even know how to follow basic immigration laws – and they’re doing so at the expense of every taxpayer in the nation.
