Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her fierce opposition to the Coronavirus stimulus package Thursday; claiming any checks to American workers will be “cut off the backs of taxpaying immigrants.”

“To clarify, $1200 checks are ONLY going to some w/social sec numbers, NOT immigrants w/ tax IDs (ITINs).

Thanks to GOP, these checks will be cut off the backs of *taxpaying immigrants,* who get nothing. Many are essential workers who pay more taxes than Amazon.

Wall St gets $4T,” posted AOC on Twitter.

What Trump + Senate GOP have done is hold hospitals, working people, and the vulnerable hostage so they could get in $500 billion (that will be leveraged into $4T) in corporate welfare.

Without the Wall St giveaway, GOP refuses to fund hospitals & unemployment. It’s inhumane.
