Stimulus Check payments did provide the much-needed respite to the people of the whole of America. The US economy has been going through a rough patch for the past few years, with unemployment rates still at historically high levels and wages stagnant. But President Biden says he has an idea to get Americans back on their feet—and it’s getting Americans even more money!
Stimulus Check Worth $1080 Coming
California has the most undocumented immigrants in the country, according to a new study. The Golden State had an estimated 4.7 million unauthorized immigrants in 2018, according to the Pew Research Center.
California is the most populous state and home to nearly 40% of all U.S.-born Latinos. It’s also one of two states that are sanctuary jurisdictions—meaning they don’t cooperate with federal authorities on immigration enforcement efforts unless required by law—and this could be one reason why so many undocumented immigrants live there. Thus, a new stimulus check will be a welcome gift.
In fact, California has been known as a “sanctuary state” since October 2017 after Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation stating that local law enforcement cannot inquire about someone’s immigration status when deciding whether or not to arrest them for an unrelated crime (so long as they’re not wanted for deportation).
Many of those without citizenship have since found out they are eligible for a payment through what’s known as an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number or ITIN. All these citizens are on the lookout for another stimulus check.
An ITIN is a tax processing number used by individuals who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number but are not eligible for a Social Security number (SSN).
The SSN is the most common form of identification in the United States and can be used to open bank accounts, apply for loans and mortgages, secure credit cards and even get health insurance coverage through your employer.
