Jay Sekulow live virus today live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow phone lines are open for your questions right now called one 800-6843 1-101-800-6841 two and the chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow everybody will be going a little bit of a different set of you better watch your face and will be done now is put together a basically a Skype studio in my home office so you're watching watching TV Facebook for going out on probably are on twitter periscope welcome to my office. We did this a couple weeks back, we were just talking to you at night as were, get everything set up.

Now we have it set up so would be able to deal with this let me go first and say what's happening here 8400 $84 billion interim emergency bill that number again $484 billion in emergency bill passed the U.S. Senate on Tuesday. It includes expanding the funding for the small business loans, which was initiated also has money and therefore hospitals, which is also important and coronavirus testing.

Now the house is expected to pass the bill this week, to write up Washington to Van Bennett and what is the status of the house as it relates to the stamp your house you can come back into session tomorrow at 10 AM J we don't have a timing on the vote yet they are can actually take of votes that they need a quorum of their members present. It is expected to pass one of the good things J we talked about how many hundreds of pages. The previous bills were this, but this one is 25 pages. We are able to go through it quickly last night. It is a pretty straight plus up of the programs that you mention funding for hospitals. Funding for testing and funding for small business loans another $310 billion for that paycheck protection program J again. The house is supposed to take it up tomorrow and I will just say as we said so many times before when I watch to make sure that they don't introduce extraneous matters. I don't expect them to, but Jay had been surprised before we can stay on it.

Jordan, we have already begun looking at the legislation to make sure there is expect and just mention nothing in there that would cause problems with the Senate. It was absolutely perfect. I think 25 pages. It just shows you don't have to write 800 pages. When you are basically re-upping a package you have already voted on before. So if you as you talk about the total package $483.4 billion. That's 310 billion additional dollars for the payment. Payment protection program. I shall employ employees. 30 billion of that is set aside for the distribution by financial institutions with less than 10 billion in assets of the smaller banks, a 30 billion set aside distribution by financial assist institutions with $10-$50 billion in assets so slightly larger banks and you've also got money in there for the SBA, the small business administration and other costs related to this that is $60 billion in economic injury disaster loans and grants. That's part of it. SBA program has been increased $75 billion additional for hospitals and healthcare facilities. That's it increase from 100 billion to hundred and 75,000,000,020 5 billion for testing suffer more covert, 19 testing also for the payment protection plates and what is this in total. Now it means. In total, including this if it passes it will be about $659 billion available for employee employers to keep their employees on payroll, which is important because right now and this is I think it's really important to understand this on. There have been a couple open up orders in Georgia and also in to my next torch is the biggest one. I guess Tennessee is going one as well, but the restrictions that are putting place are not to let these businesses get back anywhere near the full status so that's why these interim measures are not serving talk about what that means what it means for you were taking her because of 100 684-3110. Also, don't forget the ACLJ if you're able is in a matching challenge camping your support of the ACLJ makes convincing everyone that wants to get feels like it online.

Every dollar makes a difference stand with the ACLJ today support our work online ACLJ everybody was back to the broadcast. We are taking a cultivated 684 30 within your watching on TV Facebook our website you'll notice that I am not in a radio studio. I'm instead in our my office at home. That's the super I'm actually preparing the sprinkler cases are right now and we were able to Logan and her teams were able to figure out a way via Skype to be able to come to you on our TV broadcast on Facebook and other social media platforms, so replace with that. We think that's at least I have a morbid sense of being in the program this way and I Jordan be returning to the studio soon as we get a clearance level here where our media center is located fan is already in our studio outlets. I think Jordan is important here.

Let's quickly go over what's in the bill and then let's grab some pomposity by melodic questions churches what type of people. This is the increase. So it's called. They selected 3.5. This piece of legislation in the stimulus $483.4 billion at the pay for most of that going to the paycheck protection program. Remember those funds ran out at this is an increase from $349 billion.

It was already in there that was Artie has been utilized to down additional $310 billion will be available at maybe as soon as later this week or certainly by early next week and if this gets to the house without any issues and that that would bring the total for the PPP loads to $659 billion 30 billion to set aside for financial institutions that have less than 10 billion in assets so the smaller banks.

I did the medium-size base get $30 billion set aside for them as well for $10-$50 billion in assets. There's money for SBA for the small business administration costs related to getting all this out of and of course $60 billion in economic injury disaster loans and grants. That's something the SBA administers $75 billion for hospitals and healthcare facilities. That's an additional to the hundred billion.

They Artie received in the 3.0 version of this $25 billion for more covert, 19 testing and a little bit more again going towards SBA salary expenses they can get this these grants and loans out to people so thin is to be any opposition in the House of Representatives. I know were looking at the bills and make sure that it's got the right kind of information, what you expect in Washington in the next 24 hours. Yeah, I think it's gonna pass in the house. J aided particularly by the fact is, Jordan mentioned that it is a very straightforward bill. 25 pages that I was able to read through very quickly straight plus up to the programs that Jordan was talking about. So I think you're gonna see wide bipartisan support in house not just for our listeners day anybody that's watching others proceedings tomorrow, but it's probably not can involve all the members of the house they have to get a simple majority to reach a quorum, Congressman Thomas Massey is going to insist on that very likely there gonna have the 218 members there to pass it. I don't expect much opposition it will be interesting though JR this morning at 2 AM Speaker Pelosi dropped a proposal to move to some proxy voting. I think this is a proposal that I had there been bipartisan discussion.

I think probably would've been pretty easy to pass, but she kinda did drop it late in the day so there might be some drama around that proposal.

We will see.

But on this package.

J.

I think the house is going to be able to clear it and the one thing that our department the ACLJ continues to look for is were trying to make sure that there is not a last-minute drop of wish list items from Speaker Pelosi like there was the last time around day. I don't expect it, but were not can it take that for granted were to keep watching and make sure that doesn't occur, let's go ahead Jordan take some photos people are calling a lot of questions about this one 800-6831 10 Wendy's called in from Virginia on live five with a good question would be welcome to Jay Sekulow live your on the air question about people who are after high benefit. I just read recently that they needed stimulus package wasn't going to last, but maybe 72 hours before that she would be depleted. I have yet to hear anything about the people that are on search security getting there stimulus package check. We have an active file for 2012 because I don't work American table so we living up to his disability check. And I every time I go into the IRS I'm getting a status that says status unavailable, so there's actually a specific form left and give me the details on this but there's a specific list is not when you talk with money on the money with what is been running out of funds is not the individual money going to you this what we call the stimulus check. It's the PPP money.

It's the payroll protection plan that one is being used very quickly. The first $250 million were gone very quickly. There's now a new plan with new dollars put into port 310 billion PPP that can go very quickly as well. But then as it comes to the individual stimulus check. Even though she hasn't filed returns nor husband.

They can stay still get it.

They just have to fill out that one have paid for yen.

The main difference between the two programs days there is no limit on the total topline number for the stimulus. If you qualify for the stimulus you're getting get it, no matter what the total cost of that program is when it comes to the paycheck protection program. There is a statutory limit of funds and they cannot exceed that any net that authorization level is what was increase by the Senate yesterday. It's when they reached that level that the funds quit going out as far as the caller though J if she's been getting her Social Security benefits. She is going to get it gave me the same way that she collected those benefits with there's direct deposit or by mail that you mention the form. I don't think the caller is going to need to fill out this warm day, but for anyone who does.

He does not file the IRS does not have their information, but they otherwise qualify@theverytopofirs.gov. There is a button called non-filers enter payment information here. That's the form you're talking about. That's the one that they need to fill out if they don't think the IRS has their information. No join. There's another interesting aspect of that and that is we haven't really touched that much, but we should have a mention and that is what is the political aspect of all this that you got Democrats and Republicans for United on this but this is in the play out in the Presidential elections is no doubt about that. How absolutely and in that there's already this talk on the left that this is been a failure by Pres. Trumbo to handle the virus and on the economic side now. What's interesting is that we actually talk to the governors in states Democrat governors and Republican governors, mayors the same thing here something very different.

Where there issues yes and they got them to the federal government and the federal government began resolving those issues on behalf of the governors on behalf of the states so I think again it's it's going to be certainly political but this stimulus issue and the funding issue. The only reason there was a delay in getting the money more money into the payroll protection program which is so essential to being able flip the switch on if you will for economy as some states begin to slowly open up again to have their pay.

People still on payroll, not in economic at dire straits that the only hiccup there was the Democrats in the House of Representatives, not moving forward, not moving forward quickly enough warning to try negotiate more extras into this but instead what happened in the Senate easy to understand.

25 page piece of legislation, not the typical what you get from the Democrats six and 700 pages of a bunch of poor projects stuck in or workarounds.

The Hyde amendment so that abortions get the abortion industry gets funding through this and bailouts through this. That's not what the Senate did the Senate clearly laid out in only 25 pages and that is a feat in itself legislatively but the hold up was, not Republicans or the President hold up were Democrats in the house Democrats in the Senate and I hope we don't see that again if we need more stimulus out and have a form that looks whether it's another round of those checks going out to individuals who needed or forward the business community right limited what's coming up.

I want to talk about this were to answer all your questions.

Of course, but the President has said that the US is authorized usually to shoot down and destroy any Iranian boats harassing American ship someone say that again the President tweeted out that he has authorized as commander-in-chief under his constitutional responsibilities.

His constitutional prerogatives that he would stoop that the U.S. Navy has authority to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.

This is important because Iran has been flexing its muscles on this in the middle of all the pandemics that are going on these government sometimes use these opportunities to make significant changes and I think our significant policy moves and and military moves, geopolitical moves, so the President has under his authority as commander-in-chief. That's his article to authority under the Constitution. He has said if you do that I am authorizing as commander-in-chief, the United States Navy shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats harassing US naval ships at sea is a big development again. Let United can support the work of the ACLJ NACLJ.org leave a matching challenge campaign the month of April and we encourage you if you're financially able.

I want to talk the moment we really do this tomorrow and the broadcast to get our military and this is a significant the U.S. Navy has been harassed by Iranian ships in the past. We know that. Remember the Iranians. 034 it was before the present was inaugurated. They were actually captured our US naval soldiers semen and held him and eventually they were negotiated and released.

This was the middle of the negotiations for the Iran so-called nuclear peace deal you not to look at the situation and say why would the Iranians be trying to provoke US military action in the Persian Gulf and the Straits of Hormuz in those critical areas for oil supply and and also just merchandise supply. It's a merchant route. It's an ancient one at that. Why are they doing it now, so the President has authorized again specifically authorized in U.S. Navy at the does a System Energy to take action now to go to fan first and then Jordan fan out. I wanted set forth the parameters is not getting a lot of attention right now working to give it attention market-leading. It's a significant development on those of our members of Congress that serve on the military committee and foreign affairs. No how sensitive this is. They know how sensitive is they also know in it.

Like you said Jason article to power and the President has appropriately responded luck. I think the advice that the Iranian should be given is that they better take this President at his word. I mean, I know there may be used to previous administrations, issuing redlines or other warnings and then not being willing to follow through. I'm pretty confident they better take this President at his word.

I think it's an appropriate warning and I think if you talk to the members, the House armed services committee or the Senate armed services committee, you would get the same indication now J, it probably will be somewhat partisan in the Congress even though it shouldn't be but look, if the Iranians are going provoke service members who are deployed overseas. At this point in this kind of way. Commander-in-chief has to get there back to this is the appropriate warning and unlike previous commanders in chief to J if it's violated. I expect that order to be followed, so let me go Jordan, look at this. Also, and this it comes into again.

There's a worldwide medical pandemic going on in the Iranians try to do this, then you have the instability we still don't know what the situation in North Korea's all of this is happening simultaneously. There had to be a reason why this tweet went out this morning, just a few hours ago and at the present did not reference a specific incident. It follows a tense encounter last week between Iranian and U.S. Navy ships in the Persian Gulf to the US military said that 11 Iranian ships repeated repeatedly made the quote dangerous and harassing approaches of U.S. Navy and Coast Guard vessels in the Persian Gulf in international waters on Wednesday of last week in the U.S. Navy is actually released a video of some of these Iranian boats and how close they are coming at me and sometimes within I meet so closely with you wouldn't believe how close these vessels were getting and in we were using nonlethal warnings and ultimately your they would kind of they would leave, but what were mostly concerned about in these situations is that if you don't first wife gets too close and you don't strike. We seem before Iranians board a US vessel and take captive at US members of our U.S. Navy, but also what believe Iran is always trying to do here is because the provocation in an accident they would want one of our boat, make it look like one of our boats hit their boats killed Iranian Revolutionary guard members, thus amplifying the intensity inside the Persian Gulf and starting some kind of gunbattle. Now here's the problem they have very small boats. We have very large boats with much bigger guns on them so for the President to issue this order, the, the provocation must be serious enough for us to doubt. Consider using lethal force. This also.

This action by the present today as it relates to the situation with Iran comes on the heels of the situation that we now have on immigration ways issuing an order today we got a call coming on that.

Let's go take that call 1-800-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110 Mary calling from Connecticut online five Mary, welcome to Jay Sekulow live, my aunt and cottage Angelica for over 48 I met a young lady last year and they got married 2019 and he already did his biometric immigration testing in South Carolina and he already applied his change in the United States now cottage Angelica and his correct, you will not be impacted by this is my understanding then you hearing anything differently.

I don't think you can be impacted. It sounds like it will be new green card issues only and only temporarily a jamming.

I think this question is probably also relevant to the aggregates question we had yesterday. We don't again, we don't have the language, but I think it's gonna be fairy fairly narrow new green card applications only is what it sounds like Mary. Your healthier nephew go to Jordan.

Also, for we got a lot of calls about farm workers in this temporary labor guestworker programs and that is not going to be part of this ban, the temporary ban either, so guestworker programs will be able to continue so that those farms will have the at the employees they need that's the I mean that's the whole idea so marry into your nephew's situation.

He should be fine.

People that already with the presence trying to do is put in place a situation where we don't have, and I think this is the idea over the next 60 days. People coming in that we can verify we don't have the test yet certified on anybody's. These are the things to again allow for jobs for the American people got high unemployment rate announces unbelievable to say that a month after six weeks ago we had the best employment numbers in our history, but we been hit with the is present because of the invisible enemy that invisible enemy has wrecked havoc on our economy night. I think a lot of it rather quickly, as things open up with the opening up processes based it's gonna take time and for that reason, you have to understand that the bargain have to be patient, but the idea here was to give up because so that we can figure out what the next best move would be in the situation so look, I think flexibility is the key for the administration right now because things are changing. We need to be praying for those on again on the front lines that are working on.

This will get more into this ranch more your questions. We come to the back 30 minutes of the broadcast. If you're joining us later saying and it empty watching on TV or Facebook or twitter periscope or any of our other social media platforms. ACLJ.org. I guess as well is covering during this senior coming, I'm coming to you from my home office and my home office is where I am working right now working primarily on several Supreme Court cases for the President enemy argued via telephone on May 12 and argued them over the phone person that happen in Supreme Court history and allow the audio to be released live during the oral argument you'll actually get to see and it will be but annotated after worshiping what time were done but that's can be historic civil.

Looking forward to getting that done that is made to appreciate your prayers as I prepare for that. Also, don't forget to support the work of the ACLJ matching challenge campaign. If you're able to ACLJ.org and imagine going into the ACLJ report in ACLJ.org state to another 30 minutes of Jay Sekulow live ahead back with more your phone calls just at the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be managed $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in the world who knew protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you and your family. Give a gift today online LJ.live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow live counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow everybody ready to write your vocal lot of them coming in talking about the fact that United States Senate has passed. You a a bill a stimulus bill that is going to replenish those PPP loan payroll protection plan loans. So that's can be replenish. There's money in there for hospitals and $80 billion for hospitals and then other resources as well not band that is passed the Senate right so were now waiting for house action, but there you have to come back for about yet passed the Senate by voice vote yesterday J shortly before dinner. The house is coming into session tomorrow.

Members are on their way back literally as we speak. And I think they will continue coming back to town tomorrow morning J so the timing of tomorrow's vote is still up in the air though. Come in for legislative business at 10 AM. I suspect they'll enter right into debate, but I honestly think the timing of the vote is gonna depend on when they get a quorum corn right now is gonna constitute about 214 members of the house as soon as they have that number. Here I believe they will take that vote IJ I don't expect really any drama I don't think the vote will be close at all. I think will be overwhelming, nearly unanimous not probably not white. But as soon as they do that. I think it's really important to reiterate something that you and Jordan talk about a moment ago when that goes to the President's desk and get signed. A money is gonna flow from that paycheck protection program very very quickly because again the apparatus is all in place. This is just a statutory replenishing of the authorized For that. So it's institutions, large and small organ and have access to another $310 billion for small businesses to get those loans that will convert to grants if they use it for payroll and other qualified expenses J. I would expect a by Friday. Those institutions are to be taken applications again and I think that's right, Jordan. Let me ask you this week we talked a little bit about them.

Beginning this doesn't become a political issue, yet, but ultimately it's going to MEP bargain and you know do what an analysis of how the response was that the covert virus thing and talk about the financial way it was handled. How do you think this place politically Mid-America but nothing want to talk politics right now about it but I'm sure the politicians are figuring out surely there was Artie political talk about this set a temporary immigration band and being the President was called an authoritarian by Democrat member of Congress I Congressman I Castro out of Texas so that kind of language Artie being used were I think the President is right when he says it.

However, this is will be going to the election. The be that the media and the left will try to paint this as a failure of leadership.

But the truth will be in the numbers and and that's really I think what the present will be judged on the truth, and the facts will be in the numbers and the statistics of where our country is by the time the election comes around, and how we been dealing with this state to state and have unique each places had to be dealt with at the difference tween the New York Ct. which is right out of nowhere near a reopening and a Georgia which is which is moving pretty pretty quickly though still out with a lot of restrictions with starting to open or Tennessee that says 89 at a 95 counties will be able to reopen to some extent, but the biggest cities will not end in Tennessee. So even those states that are starting to reopen at the expiration of the stay at home orders the end of April at they have they have phases and phase 1 is still pretty restrictive and it's just starting to try and get people back to work back to bed, ready for the phase 2 ended phase 3 is kind of full reopening that we hope to get to before the before the fall. So again that's with where the present will be judged on. But I think the left will Artie make its mind up regard.

They Artie have, regardless of how this turns out. What will also be telling is the economy will there be time for the economy to continue to bounce back Derry from now until November 3.

We know it ultimately people vote on their in their other fake accounts. Another forward case. This is been a hit, but the governments did a lot of work to try and make sure that people are feeling as little paid as possible and it is very tough week about the entire country. I did filtering kerchief could support the ACLJ partner matching challenge both of April donate online ACLJ that'll remember the cases we just got a victory out of the Eighth Circuit in Arkansas for life ghost is broadcast as well.

ACL is a critical time for our nation and our world with so many challenges facing our country.

Every dollar makes a difference stand with the ACLJ today support our work online ACLJ go ahead and take a moment that I just got a news alert that it looks like they're not going to allow for the house proxy voting than would be learned yet. Sounds like maybe a proposal did not have the support needed is to be my personal reaction J, I think it's a good thing. For this reason, I think if you can authorize proxy voting which we have said on this broadcast before my is probably a pretty reasonable idea in a time like this that you've got have buy-in from both sides. This proposal, I got it in my hands that Speaker Pelosi dropped as she dropped it at 2 AM without any consultation of the minority side and I will tell you it gave her an awful lot of authority to determine when it went into effect when it didn't go into an effective and if you can a change to hundred years of precedent, which again we have been open to JI think you gotta do it in a bipartisan fashion leader McCarthy had said previously, he was open to a change. He just wanted it negotiated nature. Both caucuses were comfortable with it. I think the fact that she dropped it so late in the game is why it didn't have the support JI think they can get their just not can happen today. There can have to do in a bipartisan fashion, but I think that's why I have discussed it it interesting because the news alert is saying that because of Republican opposition.

This didn't go through but there had to be a lot of Democrat opposition as well because the Democrats control the house and if they got if she was able to whip all the Democrats to vote yes on this. She could have gotten her way there hundred percent correct.

You don't need Republican votes to pass this change in Jordan wanted it.

One of the early indicators that she might've been in trouble was that leader Hoyer himself said he wasn't in love with this proposal a theory to do some sort of remote voting. He preferred invoking the technology that most small businesses in many of the technology were using right now Skype. He said he would like for that to be UC could actually see a members face identify them personally and they would still cast their representative vote. This was not that this was gonna be proxy where one member of Congress could show up with a signed letter from another member and cast a vote for both of them so I think the dissension inside the Democrat ranks was pretty telling. Early on but Jordan 100% correct did not need Republican votes to get this change through you have to use the technology that exists.

I think that's a look were trying to do that right now so you try to move towards technology, let's go ahead Jordan and take a phone call yet. Denise and Indiana's but hold on Denise. We appreciate that you're on the air.

I have a different and that technically every year were not one of those like to get to get a refund and I were wondering they don't have our direct deposit information for direct deposit to lead effectively on a paper check. That's a good question, but never received a refund. But you've given them checks correct and give them a check every year so that there may be, they may have that information anyways. I suspect with England.

Yes of the default which you'd be getting a paper check at the appropriate time, although again if you would prefer to get a direct deposit. It does happen more quickly and she can enter that information manually on that form an IRS.gov. The default will be a paper check. But if you wanted to be a direct deposit. You can manually give them that information is so just go ahead Denise if you want to move, the quicker that's what I would do presenting manual checks belie the Ira service centers or close escape goings on on calls yet dad in Kansas. He said hold on as well.

Daily appreciate you hold on to talk to us. You're on the air hi gentlemen, thank you for taking my call. I sure appreciate everything you do want to give a quick I guess. Comment on the PPP. I'm a truck driver on the a single truck single employee owner operator, basically a one-man show about two weeks ago I had a major breakdown which threatened the basically put me out of business because it was something bigger than I could absorb with also taking care of my household stuff. My account about 1500 people and my banker is very very intelligent and very meticulous on these kind of programs and he called and said hey let's sign you up for this. I think you got a good chance of being funded submitted all my documents within three days he come back and take your find that your good and that hit the my bank account I was able to pay my repair bills while in a while. I'm still working to pay that off. I'm able to maintain my household got three small kids. My wife works part-time's that way she's on the kids and stuff but I hear people complaining are not really complaining. But some frustration saying I I don't know how to get this because my bank is. I hope the meeting. I think that's the biggest key is having small-town banks, the Community Banks have been doing the best job at this and not not to little other national banks but I know from a lot of people contact those churches and other organizations.

We spent a lot of time on this issue and the truth is that the smaller banks. The Community Banks have been more receptive culture dealing with the person rather than just online submitting it and seeing what happened. So those that have not yet participated. We tried and did not get it. When this bill becomes law. You will qualify.

So that's the good news there was grammatical right back to those we go in this interesting how the opposite adjusted in Washington state online. Three. Justin, welcome to Jay Sekulow live.

You're on the air hi Jesse, I think, for taking my call again. By the way Jordan got a Christmas love it. Anyhow I PPP loan to separate banks here in Washington state first point about the work that wasn't going right called the bank to avoid a member of our bank. I said no I told you that USR can help you. I said so you get free money and you can help me. Basically, yeah.

So I went to another bank. That bank said yes.

You don't have to be a member. But if one of our members applies for this loan were gonna kick your application to the back line.

I said to you and that things had the prerogative to do that in the sense that the only service so many, so here's the question for you is there just in a bank that you deal with okay and bank that you're dealing with that. Now that could provide monthly, another journey of your banking somewhere. Why not go to that institution for the PPP loan once his new legislation is a for yard that I went to my wife's bank. They finally did approve it.

My credit union today have my business account through doesn't do SBA loans and credit unions.

No, that's good, that's good. When the majority of these are perfect, but begin your persistence here is the key. That's right being your own advocate and figuring out and remember in this new legislative proposal hasn't passed the house yet, but in the new proposal, there is additional billions at 880 additional billions for smaller and medium-sized bank so I think that that's important that if you do work with a smaller bank or a even medium-sized bank they're going to have more funds to distribute by this loan programs there to have four to allocate if this does pass the House of Representatives, which we hope and expect it will add that and so we get. Be your own advocate.

Be creative. It like you were. You syndicate my network to buy credit union to state this credit union specifically doesn't do SBA loans saw go to where my wife base and they got it handled.

She's got to be creative innocence. Be your own advocate. The money is there for you. It is being passed by Congress, signed by the President to get to you, but you do have to be your own advocate because it's happening so quickly that sometimes you're getting more information because it was new broadcast like this faster then your baker might even know. So I get. I encourage people be your own advocate stay updated. Keep updated with us on the radio broadcast so that we can tell you with this legislation actually does.

If it passes tomorrow and get some estimates on when this new round of body will actually be available to the base to start granting these new loans that it would have limited the jump in and I wanted anything with this. This is passed the Senate is not get past the house now banned from it because there are people that really are looking to get the loan they really need the bonds to keep their businesses going to feed their families. What is this that what is the what is it look like in the houses would be serious opposition is. This can be email hundred percent what can happen here.

I don't think there can be serious opposition because Speaker Pelosi was involved in the negotiations and apparently is on board with this 25 page amendment to the program. J they do have to take a roll call vote and you we been around this town a long time until those votes are cast. You don't count it as as signed, sealed and delivered. I do think it is going to pass the word and have to stay on this until it does.

In J. Just one quick comment to that call you just talk. It's those two calls back to back our art are so important here. The small business ministration usually does $30 billion in loans in an entire year.

This was is now 659 billion over the course of just a few weeks adjusting it a good job, going to another institution. More financial intent, institutions are being onboard it every single day IJ I got it today. I think they're doing a pretty good job rolling out that kind of funds in just a few days.

I wouldn't ignore you because we come back from the break we have one line open 806 843-110-1800 684 $0.31 will take your calls and again tomorrow's broadcasting the public. Of course, mention this to find out what happens because past my will bring that information to you. I want to talk about the situation with Iran.

I want to talk about the immigration situation.

I want to talk about. If there's any updates out of North Korea. So far nothing which tells me it's probably something because there's been no denial of the medical lease that were on the air now situation with Kim Jong-Il and we had skip #all that means you get into that tomorrow.

Absolutely Nancy calling from Michigan online for Nancy. Welcome to Jay Sekulow life takes her old dog you're on the air financing for taking my call. I do appreciate it. I'm calling about the I have done my due diligence we had not gotten it yet I can't with the IRS to find out why we haven't. And right now I'm on the screen and I'm getting out my bank information and in the past few years we have filed our tax returns that we had. We had not paid. We do not all because we don't make me. I received a refund money either one of those and if I do with the amount that hamper may just as income and the amount I paid in taxes.

The amount of zero next screen. Even if I wanted the two buttons they seem to refine your own money is error technical difficulty won't answer the following questions with family had that yesterday with a couple callers as well, yet they have had some technical difficulties dear rate has been low.

Here's what I would do J. I would go ahead and go to the supplemental form and give in the new information as if you were a non-filer. I know you said you filed your taxes and my assumption J is you probably will get a paper check in the mail because that would have been on your forms. But again, this goes back to the advice of Jordan has given many times, I would just go ahead and duplicate this step complete the nonfilers form at the top of that screen others no penalty J if they are to have your information your giving them the information the second time.

Guess what, the same results can happen.

You can get the check in the mail. I think that's absolutely correct our Jordan is next. Yeah right back to the falls we go, let's go to David in Michigan online.

Five. David, welcome to Jay Sekulow live David hi guys got the place for all your work with hundred been a lot of trouble culture the questionable stimulus as well. My son had his stimulus check rerouted and pay off a past child support that and I was under the understanding that that was not going to happen and with the stimulus. When you say rerouted you meet someone placed a lien on it will know I was actually paid to our local child support unit in our county to cover his letter, his debt that he owes Jordan what are you aware you know about that because I'm a wizard, you haven't heard, my understanding is that these checks either are going directly to your deposit so they're going directly to your account or their being mailed to you as a check that you the deposit so if they had the idea that the check was somehow rerouted into 887 had a program before it even reached David salads account to me. That seems like something that that should not have happened and probably need to talk to a a local may be a just financial attorney I to figure out to get to the bottom of this doesn't make sense to me.

Jordan, my advice would be exactly the same ease to talk to his family attorney who did that work involving the child support payments.

I think that family attorney familiar with this situation should look at that and advising in the next apps is that we not the intention of this the attention of this is not to pay back taxes. It was not to pay back child support. It was so that you would have enough money to put food on the table to pay the your necessary bills was supposed to be a boost to your income. It was just supposed to be to keep you going as as best as possible through this.

Where so many are are unemployed or making less body are being furloughed so I get it was not. It was not intended to be something that could be seized by various state or federal entities because of body you may so II think again. You gotta talk to Prof. as we keep saying on the broadcast be your own advocate back to the fold. We go Gloria in Maryland online board Gloria welcome Jay Sekulow live my call or that I think those are for purity directly department head on to the Social Security card. The direct express card. I would like to know do I have to and I thought the income bracket where I do not file have to file the taxes.

Because of my income. I would like to know to get the do I have to fill out a form date nonfilers form to tell you what I did with that said is right. I think if you're having trouble we haven't received your ticket glory is not received your correct yeah I would go ahead and fill out that form because they probably don't have it set up. They have set up for direct deposit. They probably don't have set up a getting into your Social Security card because is not a Social Security payment. It's from the treasury as a stimulus so I would fill out that other of form just in the singular hard copy. Just so you know to get process in the process, and in due course yet is no harm in doing that either. We were telling people yesterday of the final couple segments.

You know that starting it towards the end of this week. If you if you believe you qualify for the stimulus check and you have not received the direct deposit.

Especially, you should probably do some more due diligence and it of course if you have not received in the mail by early next week. Especially do more due diligence and make sure you don't need to fill out a form or something like that. They're very easy to fill out on the irswebsite@irs.gov and enter systems there that had to tell you your status I would get a call about that George and Marilyn, I lied to George welcome to Jay Sekulow live know that point.

Thank you Donna for all you do think take my call at the foot in that here every day on Facebook. I have a situation when I found it when it came away, jointly account that we had in that time had been finished close we not even a gambit this point that when I go online to check the status addict as a patent payment that is not available to him. That sure how the be my own advocate or what I need to do the net.

I would get we go to and evaluates filing separately in our and with the mentalist marital status is but if you're if you're not married. She can qualify to.

So you should file that same form that we've been talking about right.

And that's the best way to do this lot that forming the other option J could file his 2019 returns now and get then there information that way.

So I probably do both.

Honestly, I think there's no reason not to do both all right. Let's go over these questions today. Let me say what will get you onto Mark McCorkle answer questions. Hopefully this will pass and we will have a log present consign and this will help a lot more people, which is exactly what that desires but were also going to get into some of the geopolitical things that are going on because it all ties into this pandemic. What's the situation with China in the lab. What was their culpability. One of the Iranians up to a coming close to US naval ships in the Mediterranean Sea in the city of Straits of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf want to make what are they up to what's going on in North Korea that mustn't have an update for you on some of the domestic issues that are going on here, including another report on the FISA abuse that is taken place sedition be a lot to cover on tomorrow's broadcast George let you know how we can support the ACLJ if you're able to. This month right folks go to ACLJ.org best way to donate right now ACLJ.R with a matching challenge in the month of April. What is that mean a $20 donation you make online the ACLJ.org that's effectively $40 to the ACLJ yearly charge of your credit card $20 and it goes on up from there.
