Nancy Pelosi Gets Her Way, Republican Senators Cave In To The House Speakers Demands, Pass A Bill That Will Give A Whopping $350 Million For Refugees

Republicans and Democrats came together, finally, to pass a relief package that will bailout American citizens during the coronavirus crisis.

But the devil is always in the details in these stimulus packages and there is one detail that is going to infuriate conservatives.

The Democrats managed to get a major concession from Republicans with 350,000 million going to refugees, The Daily Caller reported.

Republican and Democratic senators unanimously voted to pass a coronavirus relief bill late Wednesday that gives $350,000,000 to assist refugees and migrants.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s relief package would include $300,000,000 for refugee assistance.

The new bill, approved by the Senate and now headed to the House, includes an additional $50 million on top of Pelosi’s initial $300 million for refugees.

On page 817 of the 880-page bill, the measure calls for “an additional amount for ‘Migration and Refugee Assistance’, $350,000,000, to remain available until expended, to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.”

“For an additional amount for ‘‘Migration and Refugee Assistance’’, $350,000,000, to remain available until expended, to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus,” the bill reads.

“Provided That such amount is designated by the Congress as being for an emergency requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985,” it says.

This is what makes Republicans furious at the Republican Party sop often when these types of bills are passed.

It appears to many of us that the Party never sticks up for us or stands up to Nancy Pelosi, who is more concerned about non citizens than Americans.

The bill is important and the relief is important for the nation, but giving in to Pelosi’s demands is never a wise idea.

  • …Just out of curiosity, what ‘tragic’ hold does she have over the GOP controlled Senate? She got pictures of McConnell with a goat, or something.
    She seems to run The Congress as if it were her own private toy. I only wish there someone with enough ‘balls’ to stand up to that “Witch.” Any takers?

  • This and her COL line item went through did it? I wondered about that. Haven’t seen it in any “This is what’s in the relief package” liberal news articles. How convenient. More importantly – how utterly shameful of those DemonicRats ! While Bernie is worried that the average Joe who gets $600 will get more in UI than they normally make. Such disgusting POS’s!!
