Washington State diverted over $400 million of federal relief funds to illegal aliens in 2023. The money was taken from a COVID-19 fund and was not meant to shore up migrants’ inability to make ends meet. Under this program, migrants who were not entitled to stimulus money due to their illegal status were given checks of up to $3,000 each. An estimated 300,000 illegal aliens may have been given cash through this method in Washington State alone. The majority of illegal aliens who received the funding are of Hispanic descent. The cash payments to these migrants do not appear to be enough, as recent news interviews show dozens of families trying and failing to get housing in Washington State. Migrants complain that temporary shelters set up for them by taxpayer dollars aren’t adequate.
