At a time when Americans are struggling to make ends meet, illegal migrants holed up in so-called Sanctuary States are getting paid off with our tax dollars. They are receiving millions of unemployment dollars despite the fact that illegals are not eligible for unemployment benefits, according to the Immigration Reform Law Institute [IRLI]. The IRLI says that New York State, Colorado, and Washington DC have, thus far, given migrants more than $2.7 million.

“If, for example, New York revamped their program and made it permanent; the D.C.
