Ted Cruz Rage-Tweets ‘Fact-Check’ Of “Lefty Press” & Sen. Durbin’s “Lies” About Stimmies For Illegal ImmigrantsThe passing, by The Senate, of the Biden admin’s $1.9 trillion package of pork and payoffs has apparently triggered Senator Ted Cruz. Having attempted to insert an amendment that would disallow the $1400 handouts to illegal immigrants (paid for by legal US taxpaying residents), he was attacked as a “liar” by Senator Dick Durbin
Cruz had asked, “The question for the American people to answer is, should your money, should taxpayer money, be sent, $1,400, to every illegal alien in America?”
Durbin said, “Undocumented immigrants do not have social security numbers. And they do not qualify for stimulus relief checks, period. And just in case you didn’t notice, they didn’t qualify in December… To stand up there and say the opposite is just to rile people up.”
As is clear by the Twitter thread below – Cruz was none too happy about Durbin’s lies (which were dutifully repeated by the mainstream media)…
Cruz begins by asking (rhetorically): “Want to understand why we’re so divided? Why each side seems to live in alternate universes?”
Take a moment & examine the misinformation here (both deliberate & inadvertent)…
FACT 1: Dem spending bill sends $1400 to each adult in US.
FACT 2: Dems voted against my amendment to prohibit sending those $$ to criminals (murderers, rapists, child molesters) currently IN PRISON. EVERY Dem voted to send criminals the $$.
FACT 3: I then called up my amendment to prohibit illegal aliens from getting the $1400 checks.
FACT 4: Durbin then screamed “liar!” and insisted no illegal immigrants would get $$ because the bill requires social security numbers.
It does not take a great leap of understanding to see how Democrats will control future elections by buying illegal alien and criminal votes.
