Ayanna Pressley: Next Coronavirus Stimulus Should Support Illegal Immigrants

Catherine Smith, American Greatness, April 8, 2020

The Daily Caller reports, “Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley said that she wants the next coronavirus stimulus package that Congress passes to provide funds for illegal aliens.”

Pressley told MSNBC  said she wants to see the next COVID-19 relief package include more “vulnerable populations,” such as the: “homeless, men and women in jail, and those living in the U.S. illegally,” according to The Daily Caller.


Congress passed a $2.2 trillion relief bill, the CARES Act, providing financial assistance to Americans struggling under the coronavirus pandemic. However, many Democrats want more relief and want the next package to include those living in the U.S. illegally.

Several House Democrats have already introduced legislation that would allow illegal aliens living in the U.S. unlawfully to apply for funds from the recently passed coronavirus relief package.
