The so-called stimulus bill currently being considered by the US Senate contains about $104 billion in new government funding for construction projects with the goal of creating jobs for millions of unemployed Americans. Unlike the House version, there is no provision in the bill to bar illegal immigrants from getting these taxpayer-funded jobs. This could result in several hundred thousand illegal immigrants receiving jobs that should rightfully go to American citizens according to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies.
