Mixed-Status Immigrant Families Eligible for Stimulus Checks in COVID Relief Bill

Camilo Montoya-Galvez, CBS News (December 22, 2020)

The recently passed $900 billion COVID relief bill will include mixed-status immigrant families with undocumented family members, making them eligible to receive stimulus checks, which they were not able to receive with the first stimulus package last spring. Mixed-status families with one Social Security Number-holder will also become retroactively eligible for the checks that were a part of the CARES Act.
