She has lost it…
Ilhan Omar recently suggested a legislation that would give out cash benefits to non-citizens and “mixed status” families. The CARES Act states that one must have a Social Security in order to receive the cash benefit provided, and Ilhan Omar and her “Squad” members are not happy about that.
They want the cash payments to be extended to non-citizens as well as families who have both non-citizens and citizens. Omar stated, “It is absurd and cruel that a taxpaying, mixed status couple or family could be excluded from this relief.”
“Over 140,000 Minnesotans live in mixed status families of some form. As currently written, many Minnesotans who are in this country legally or part of a mixed status family will not receive any stimulus money, even if one of them has a social security number but the other does not.”
It is absurd and cruel that a taxpaying family with mixed immigration status could be excluded from this relief during this pandemic.
Today I introduced a bill and led a letter to address this major error.

She has gone completely bonkers if she thinks that non-citizens deserve the same cash benefits as citizens. Read the full story here.
