American Republicans might be upset when they learn that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got her way with the relief bill as $350,000,000 was allocated for refugee and migrant assistance.
Surprisingly, this is actually $50,000,000 more than what was originally requested for refugee assistance alone, as stated by the Daily Caller.
The bill, which was voted on by both Democrats and Republicans unanimously, was approved, went to the House, and then signed off on by President Donald Trump.
According to Daily Caller’s report, “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.”
Many Trump supporters remain upset that he signed off on this bill when there’s numerous items that are receiving millions in assistance, but are not directly related to the issue at hand.
For example, the Kennedy Center was reportedly going to receive $25 million in aid, despite being funded by a lot of wealthy donors.
In hindsight, American citizens are set to receive a check for $1,200 per person and $500 per child, but there are limits as to who receives the check and how much exactly.
That amount is minimal compared to the millions that places like the Kennedy Center are set to receive, which is why many Americans believe this relief bill was actually no good.
For many, $1,200 may not even cover the rent, especially in locations such as New York City and Philadelphia.
