According to reports from Breitbart News, Nancy Pelosi’s plan to fight the coronavirus includes giving millions of American taxpayer dollars to refugees living overseas.
Earlier this week, House Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blocked the passage of the coronavirus relief package for American businesses, and workers.
According to Breitbart, the relief package was blocked in efforts to favor their own plan, which would increase taxpayer funding to foreign refugees.
Pelosi’s plan included moving $300 million of American taxpayer dollars to foreign refugees.
More from Breitbart:
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.
