AOC Upset Cash Relief Does Not Extend to Non-Citizens

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed outrage on Thursday that the cash payment portion of the economic relief package, which the Senate unanimously passed Wednesday night, does not extend to noncitizens.

The Senate unanimously approved of the historic coronavirus emergency relief measure on Wednesday evening after days of partisan battles.
