New York lawmakers created a $ 2.1 billion Covid fund for illegal aliens who lost their jobs during the pandemic.
It is by far the largest in the country and eclipsed the $ 75 million that California handed out to illegals last year.
The fund is part of a larger state budget deal that will offer one-time payments of up to $ 15,600 to illegals.
If the illegal alien is unable to provide any documentation, they will still receive $ 3,200 – the same amount of money Americans received in Congress-approved Covid stimulus checks.
According to the Pew Research Center, approximately 750,000 illegal aliens live in New York State.

New York lawmakers struck a deal this week to create a $ 2.1 billion coronavirus relief fund for undocumented immigrants and other unemployed people who were not eligible for federal aid during the pandemic.
The fund, which was announced as part of a larger $ 212 billion budget deal, will offer one-time payments of up to $ 15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost their jobs during the virus-induced crisis.
“This nation’s economy has long been built on the backs of our undocumented workforce and their vital work which has helped keep our nation running through this pandemic,” said Senator de New York State fund promoter Jessica Ramos in a statement. .
