‘Pelosi Basically Lost Me’: White House Says Checks For Illegal Aliens A No-Go For Stimulus Negotiations

http://dailycaller.com/

White House economic adviser Peter Navarro swatted down the possibility that the coronavirus stimulus package passed by House Democrats would be acceptable by the Trump administration.

During a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week” with Georgia Stephanopoulos, Navarro said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “lost me” with her party’s stimulus bill. The legislation includes a slate of poison pills for the GOP, including cash assistance for illegal aliens, protections for sanctuary cities, and other far-left provisions.

“So, Nancy Pelosi basically lost me with that package when she has $1,200 checks for illegal immigrants, it goes downhill from there,” Navarro, the director of trade and manufacturing policy within the administration, said Sunday when asked about the bill.

“What we have to do, George, is basically go with the fiscal and monetary stimulus that we have been going through. We’ve got a lot coursing through the system now,” Navarro said. “We may need more. I’ll let others above my pay grade negotiate that.”

“What I’m focused on, George, and this is the real key to success,  is going to be the structural adjustments we’re going to have to make,” he continued, suggesting that the U.S. would need to replace lost service jobs by creating more opportunities in the manufacturing industry.

The interview came after House Democrats passed their $3 trillion HEROES Act on Friday night.

The bill, which includes massive assistance to states and local governments suffering from the coronavirus lockdown, would allow those who use Taxpayer Identification Numbers to be eligible for direct cash assistance, paving the way for illegal aliens who don’t have Social Security numbers to be eligible for the $1,200 checks.

House Republicans introduced an amendment that would’ve prevented illegal aliens from receiving the stimulus checks, but Democratic lawmakers shot it down before passing the bill on Friday.

The legislation also calls on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to reduce its detainee population, and bars the administration from withholding federal grant money from localities that refuse cooperation with federal immigration authorities. i.e. sanctuary cities.

The bill is not expected to survive in the GOP-controlled Senate.

  1. The comments above have said it all.

    We have got to vote all Democrats out of office to save America, otherwise they will allow China to take this country without firing a shot, because they have so much money invested in China!

    What the Democrats haven’t sold to China, they’ll freely give to them, and then Communist China where dogs and cats are on the evening menu, will be happening here in America.

    Get rid of Pig-losi and her cronies before they destroy us, and your children will be forced to learn Chinese!

  2. Like I have said many times, if there are people in need, then by all means lets us help,,,BUT, with that said, remember every time you get on an airline, The stewardess shows you what to do “in case of an emergency” which is: “To FIRST Place the mask (O2) on YOUR face, then help the other person next to you”
    What is she saying folks??? She is saying first help yourself then… What is that other saying, Charity begins at home??? What about senior citizens that have paid and paid and paid all their lives, and yet their income (after paying & retiring) is but a pittance as to what government has made off of all that money seniors paid…why is that…it is because we give so much away… My mother worked for over 1/2 century paying diligently to taxes & Social Security (to charities as well, she was a very giving woman) and do you know what she retired on, it was $700/month, she was barely making it, and every time there was a cost of living increase her medicare cost went up equally, in other words, she got no extra money for YEARS a 1% increase meanwhile those fookers in DC were getting what 7% or more on 100’2 of thousands of dollars,,,who the hell did the work (hint: My mother), who the hell paid the charities (Hint my mother and “Joe/Jane citizen) what the fook do politicvians do, (hint: They spend money as if it was theirs) AGAIN< I* believe to help my fellow man, but I do not chop my own hand for feeding them, I do not spite the very nose on my face.. Sayings…NO, FACT, One must take care of their own home 1st…Charity built this nation, but ONLY AFTER we built ourselves!
