Biden’s Infrastructure Bill Rewards States With More Immigrants: Report

By Hank Berrien • Daily Wire • Aug 9, 2021

The infrastructure bill pushed by President Biden and Senate Democrats apparently rewards states with more immigrants, offering them federal money based on the number of “covered populations” proportional to the total number of people of “covered populations” in all eligible states.

Included in the bill, the Digital Equity Act would permit the Department of Commerce to create a grant program funding broadband expansion. “25 percent of the total grant amount shall be based on the number of individuals in the eligible State who are members of covered populations in proportion to the total number of individuals in all eligible States who are members of covered populations,” Breitbart noted.

Breitbart added, “Those considered part of the ‘covered populations’ that a state’s grant money would be tied to — depending on how large this group is — newly arrived immigrants to the U.S. who speak little-to-no English.”

The Digital Equity Act describes “covered populations” in this way: “individuals who live in covered households; aging individuals; incarcerated individuals, other than individuals who are incarcerated in a federal correctional facility; veterans; individuals with disabilities; individuals with a language barrier, including individuals who— are English learners; have low levels of literacy; individuals who are members of a racial or ethnic minority group; and individuals who primarily reside in a rural area.

The Digital Equity Act adds, “A State that wishes to be awarded a grant under subsection (d) shall develop a State Digital Equity Plan for the State, which shall include— the identification of the barriers to digital equity faced by covered populations in the State.”
