Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset cash relief does not extend to noncitizens.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed outrage on Thursday that the cash payment portion of the economic relief package, which the Senate unanimously passed Wednesday night, does not extend to noncitizens. The Senate unanimously approved of the historic coronavirus emergency relief measure on Wednesday evening after days of partisan battles.

But of course the avowed socialist advocates for free money for everyone and their mother. On another note NewsVoice is getting to be more trouble than it's worth to use as a platform.

Have to agree with AOC on this. The US should absolutely give non-US citizens money. We should give them just enough money for a bus or train ticket home and also make sure that they go -- assisting them with our friendly ICE travel agents as necessary.

Its so ridiculous that any one would think, at a time like this, that non citizens should get this aid. Its straining the crap out of the economy as it is.

Well this is just more incentive to become a taxpaying citizen of the country you hold residence to, right? Better start filing that paperwork, and fast!

Someone please help this poor soul, or at least give her a basic course in EconEconomics. No, money doesn't grow on USG trees. It takes people, lots of people, with real jobs, to provide the money for these give-away programs.

Fact Check: It doesn't apply to NON-RESIDENT ALIENS. AKA Illegal Immigrants. People with Green Cards are still elligible.

Noncitizens should ask their own countries for money.

Yeah no we are not giving money to noncitizens. I have no idea why she would even think that would be something to consider.

No matter what the situation. No matter how dire things are. You can always rely on this googly- eyed spasmo-clown to put a smile on your face.

Especially if they work here and pay taxes! Bias is against POC such as Puerto Rico, who are not allowed to participate in voting!!?

Might as well give money to everyone in the world, since the US has infinite resources
