Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is proposing spending more money on overseas foreign refugees than she wants to give to the homeless in America, veterans, and emergency food and shelter programs in the country.
Read on to learn more about the ongoing madness coming from Democrats during this time of coronavirus panic…
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) plan to fight the coronavirus includes giving millions in American taxpayer funding to refugees living overseas.
Pelosi, along with House Democrats, blocked passage of a coronavirus relief package for American workers, citizens, and small businesses in favor of their own plan that increases taxpayer funding to foreign refugees.
Included in Pelosi’s plan is a designation of $300 million in American taxpayer money to foreign refugees:
In comparison, for example, Pelosi’s plan only gives about $100 million in additional funds for runaways and homeless youth in the U.S. and only an extra $15 million to the “Veterans Employment and Training” office to help respond to the health crisis.
Taxpayer money for foreign refugees is also about $100 million more than what Pelosi’s plan specifically designates for the emergency food and shelter program under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
Oppositely, President Trump’s State Department has halted refugee resettlement in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.
