OPINION: The coronavirus relief bill in the U.S. Senate includes $350 million for “migration and refugee assistance.”

That’s $350 million that will not be given to hard-working American families or small business that are on the verge of declaring bankruptcy.
Even more hard to believe is this kind of nonsense is being presented by a Republican-controlled Senate.
