On Wednesday, a reporter asked President Trump why undocumented immigrants won’t be receiving a stimulus check. As though they’re entitled to one?
Well, dang, if we want to follow that logic, let’s go ahead and just hand a check over to every single person in the world.
The sad truth is that they may receive the $500 check for each anchor baby they have had.
I’m not saying that illegal immigrants shouldn’t be granted basic human rights but I certainly disagree with them receiving the benefits that taxpaying citizens, that lost their jobs, should be receiving in this time of crisis.
All in all, if you haven’t paid into the system, you are not entitled to be paid out by the system.
Regarding Trump’s response to the question, he was such a civil soul in how he handled it.
According to Breitbart:
“Well, you know, you are saying undocumented, meaning they came in illegally,” Trump said. “A lot of people would say that we have a lot of citizens right now that won’t be working, so what are you going to do?”
Trump said he felt bad about the situation for illegal immigrants during a tough economic period.

“It’s a very sad question, I must be honest with you, but they came in illegally and we have a lot of people that are citizens in our country that won’t be able to have jobs,” Trump said.
The president said he hoped that the economy would grow back quickly after the virus was defeated.
“Its a really sad situation and it’s something we’re working on,” he said.
