US Senator Thom Tillis (RINO-NC) was one of two US Senators responsible for inserting a provision in the Coronavirus stimulus bill to give families with illegal alien members $1,800 per person, three times the $600 that US citizens are to receive. The other Senator behind this outrage was Sen. Marco Rubio (RINO-FL). This was one of the provisions in the bill that was blasted by President Trump who urged it to be reconsidered. Why should illegal aliens, who are not even supposed to be in the country at all, get anything, much less three times what citizens get?
Also in the related Omnibus spending bill passed at the same time were provisions that cut funding for the border patrol, restricted where the border wall can be built, drastically cut detention beds for apprehended illegal aliens, and preserved a major loophole used by violent illegal alien criminal gangs like MS-13 to move their members into the US.
In the Senate, NC RINO's Burr and Tillis both voted for these bills, while in the House, most NC Republican congressmen voted against them. An exception was Congressman Greg Murphy who took a walk and did not vote at all.
