Nancy Pelosi and her fellow House Democrats released their own 1,400-page stimulus plan to address the Coronavirus pandemic, and it includes $300 million for refugees reports The Washington Examiner.

The “Pelosi package” calls “for an additional amount for ‘Migration and Refugee Assistance'” of $300 million to “remain available until expended, for necessary expenses to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus: Provided, That such amount is designated by the Congress as being for an emergency requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.”

Rep. Steve Scalise blasted the proposal, saying it was Pelosi’s “socialist wish list.”

“Speaker Pelosi unveiled legislation aimed at exploiting the COVID-19 public health crisis by attempting to force the inclusion of a socialist wish list of policies that have nothing to do with the public health and economic emergency,” Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, said.
