Ted Cruz Just Secured His Place In Hell
Ted Cruz and three other Republican Senators have stooped to the lowest moral level possible as they introduce the WALL Act, a new bill that would authorize $25 billion to fully-fund Donald Trump’s border wall while gutting millions from federal programs that help immigrants and low-income parents.
Cruz said that the wall would be funded by tightening the requirements of government programs for low-income workers instead of taking funds directly from somewhere else in the federal budget.
Among them, the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Other federal programs, like food stamps, would require recipients to prove citizenship, according to Cruz.
According to the new bill, if an individual cannot provide proof of citizenship they would be kicked out of the program, leaving millions of starving children without food.
Cruz says additional funding would come by increasing “the minimum fines on illegal border crossers” and establishing a “minimum penalty for visa overstays.”
Cruz’s bill is not backed by facts. He provided to proof that these programs are being abused by non-citizens or ineligible workers, it just appears to be a racist assumption just to tend to Trump’s needs.
“Currently only the child needs a SSN, not the parent benefiting from the refundable child tax credit. The WALL Act would require the parent to have a valid work-eligible social security number,” Cruz says. “Before 2003, the Social Security Agency did not distinguish between work-eligible and non-work eligible SSNs. Therefore, there are individuals benefiting from the EITC they are not authorized to receive because they are non-work eligible.”
Cruz is trying to keep legal U.S. citizen children from receiving help that they need because their parents are immigrants, that’s the basics of what this bill is doing.
Even legal immigrants who are eligible for programs like food stamps are refusing to sign up, for fear they will be deported. That means some children are not getting the food they need. The WALL Act feeds those fears, not the children who need help the most.
“I have long called for building a wall as a necessary step in defending our border and stopping the flow of illegal immigration into our country,” Cruz says in his statement. “The overwhelming majority of Texans and Americans want to see the border secured.”
Again, Cruz lied in that statement as polling shows that the majority of Americans don’t want a border wall.
