Republican Senators Cave In To The Pelosi’s Demands, Pass A Bill That Will Give A Whopping $350 Million For Refugees

By

The Democrats managed to get a major concession from Republicans with 350,000 million going to refugees, The Daily Caller reported.

Republican and Democratic senators unanimously voted to pass a coronavirus relief bill late Wednesday that gives $350,000,000 to assist refugees and migrants.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s relief package would include $300,000,000 for refugee assistance.

The new bill, approved by the Senate and now headed to the House, includes an additional $50 million on top of Pelosi’s initial $300 million for refugees.

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.”

“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,” the bill reads.

“Provided That such amount is designated by the Congress as being for an emergency requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985,” it says.
