With spending-fueled inflation raging and law-abiding citizens struggling with rising prices, the Biden White House sent as much as $5.2 billion in relief fund checks to illegal aliens and federal prisoners.

House Budget Committee Ranking Member Jason Smith (R-MO) is now demanding the Treasury Department “provide information, including documents, records, and correspondence, directly to the U.S. House of Representatives regarding the number and total dollar amount of stimulus checks from the American Rescue Plan sent to deceased individuals, convicted prisoners, non-U.S. citizens living abroad, and illegal immigrants.”

“President Biden’s $2 trillion so-called ‘Rescue Plan’ sparked the worst inflation crisis in forty years. A closer examination reveals this very same spending has left behind a massive trail of waste and abuse of taxpayer dollars, including billions’ worth of taxpayer-funded checks that went to prisoners as well as Japanese citizens living in Japan,” said Smith.

“Reports further indicate that millions in taxpayer funds were sent to deceased individuals while millions of illegal immigrants may also have received funds under lax immigration enforcement,” said Smith.

“The American people and their representatives in Congress deserve a full and thorough accounting of where and to whom this money has gone, and what, if any, attempts the Biden White House has made to reclaim this money for the taxpayers,” said Smith.

According to Smith, preliminary information finds:

-$783.5 million in stimulus checks sent to over 500,000 federal prisoners, including the Boston Marathon Bomber

– $1,400 stimulus checks sent to Japanese citizens living in Japan

– $13 million in stimulus checks sent to deceased individuals

-Up to $4.38 billion in stimulus checks sent to illegal immigrants

The payments to illegal aliens and federal prisoners appear to add up to $5.1635 billion.
