This is a problem in New York?

Everybody knows that's a Republican stronghold.

How do I throttle funding for undocumented Kremlin psychic spies who don't respect the constitution?

"We've been very happy that most folks who've applied have been able to receive funds, but there's definitely a lot of folks who have been left out."

Immigration advocates added that while they are appreciative of the labor department and Gov. Kathy Hochul's administration for the rapid rollout of the funds, with 99.7 percent of approved applicants getting the full $15,600 in aid, they also knew $2.1 billion would not be enough to meet the demand.


At least it's a start.

And ofc,

Reyes herself has seen a lot of community members' bosses refuse to give them proof of employment letters, she said through an interpreter.

"I think the reason why they refuse is because they're avoiding paying taxes on their employees."

The Democrats really need to work on their optics.

This is how the working poor get turned into Trump voters.

I was referring to Lost In America.  The last verse was way ahead of its time.

This right there is the single biggest issue I have with immigration.

It needs to be made very clear that if you hire undocumented workers and abuse them or pay them less or nothing that the hammer will be dropped on you.

Hiring undocumented workers shouldn't be cheaper than hiring documented ones.  (Of course, personal opinion is that the borders should be open to any individual not known or suspected to have committed serious crimes.  I do not believe in immigration limits, and think that citizenship should be granted to all DACA recipients and to all otherwise undocumented people that can meet the qualifications.)

Not to quibble with the "ironic" tag, but I thought "undocumented" was a euphemism for people who lack official permission to be present in the country, not adherents of an extremist cult that eschews all forms of documentation whatsoever.

People getting paid cash under the table and not paying taxes have a hard time applying for benefits paid for by those tax dollars.  Film at 11.

Don't let words get in the way of a good pun.

Fixed.

It's Politics 101 for legislators to pass a social program bill, make sure the press knows how compassionate they are with other people's money (including the poor's money), then see to it that as little as possible is done to distribute the money. The unspent dough goes back into the general fund for the bosses to use as they please.
