New York will offer payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants affected by the pandemic.

The question is whether NY is using their “COVID Stimulus” money to fund this program? If so, then did American Citizens – who only got $2,000 from their own government, fund payments of “up to $15,600” for non-citizens? Under the latest $1.9 trillion “Covid” spending bill passed by Congressional Democrats, NY received $100 billion of federal funds, nearly a third of all funding for state/local governments.
Taxpayers across the country funded NY’s $15,600 checks for illegal immigrants.
