Posted on 03/26/2020 3:49:27 PM PDT by Syncro
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 Pelosis 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 Pelosis 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.

Mnuchin: Thanks to the wonderful Chuck Schumer for the bipartisan cooperation.
Did anyone think this wouldn’t happen?
If it were for our homeless vets, for housing and medical, I could somehow understand. I doubt they were even thought of in this bill.
MOTHER FUCHING UNIPARTY
DAMN THEM TO HELL
Trump should veto it, and tell the left to stop messing around with the American people.
For crying out loud, didnt we debunk this yesterday? Folks keep posting the pelosi bill. Thats not what passed, or am I wrong?
Unless that money is to assist migrants and refugees back to their place of origin, it needs to come out of there...alas I know it will remain.
Any way this could be twisted to use for the DACA criminal aliens?
Your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will despise you for letting this happen. Have we been “pawned”???
I don't see any mandate TO spend it at all! And Trump should not spend a single dime.
So by delaying and causing many to die many to lose more jobs and money, Pelosi was able to give 50 million MORE to buy votes.
Oops, I meant to say " to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.
I think it would be better to deport illegal invading criminal invading aliens.
Republicans caving to Democrats is par for the course.
They are, after all, the party that occasionally resists new crap but never rolls back old crap.
With compromise in one direction only selling us out is simply what theyre gonna do sooner or later.
My Net has been down for almost a day. Can anyone tell me whether the pols did away with the “mis-draft” that encouraged lay-offs?
The rats have never had this much leverage and they used it.
While you’re getting angry at the GOPe Thank the idiots who gave the House to the Rats.
The House at any time can spend the money on illegal aliens
Even to help them vote.
Pelosi runs the House.
And apparently the Senate also.
She ran in and bitch slapped Schumer and he cowered and gave her the floor.
They are all “Nancy Boys”
They didn’t cave. The gop loves giving out money and stuff to refugees. Amnesty is around the corner.
the gop leaders are weak, and will always capitulate to anyone with nads.
The man behind the curtain in the Senate is Pelosi.
