The $3 trillion coronavirus relief package released by House Democrats this week includes protections for illegal immigrants who work in jobs declared essential a move that Republicans are blasting as an attempt at amnesty.
The mammoth bill includes a section on page 1,737 on temporary protections for essential critical infrastructure workers.
That section of the bill allows some illegal immigrants who are engaged in essential critical infrastructure labor or services in the United States to be placed into a period of deferred action and authorized to work if they meet certain conditions.
It also grants protections to those employers who hire illegal immigrants, stating that the hiring, employment or continued employment of the defined group of illegal immigrants is not in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
The move was flagged by Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli as a push by Democrats to grant "amnesty" to illegal immigrants and protection to those who employ them.

It has become obvious that this package contains their entire election 2020 political platform.
That bill is already as dead as Nancy Pelosi’s brain.
The DEMs need the GOP to vote this down to use as a campaign issue. The problem is the GOP might mess up and vote *with* the DEMs, thinking it will help their re-election chances while screwing over Americans.
The gambit is a classsic chess fork.
The move is a win regardless of the outcome.
In reality the fact it is hatched is a clear indication of desperation. When success depends on Republication rejection the bottom of the barrel is being scraped
It has everything the Dems EVER wanted
Pelosi buying votes. People from other countries can’t even speak English and she wants to hand them money.
This Perez who heads the Democrat Party is a disgrace.
So far ----
