You can take Joe Biden at his word. He really doesn’t want there to be a border crisis and it has nothing to do with him. He doesn’t actually want millions of illegal aliens showing up at the border. Really. That’s why he’s paying them $450,000 each while Americans go hungry.
The Biden administration is in talks to offer *illegal alien* families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter
That’s like the time a burglar fell through a glass roof and sued the homeowner. Except that in this case the homeowner is being represented by the burglar’s lawyer.
The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said.
Americans can’t afford to buy a home, put gas in their car, or even food on their plates, but Biden and the Dems will bleed the country dry and use the money to incentivize more demographic replacement as part of their grand national strategy.
The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents families in one of the lawsuits, has identified about 5,500 children separated at the border over the course of the Trump administration, citing figures provided to it by the government. The number of families eligible under the potential settlement is expected to be smaller, the people said, as government officials aren’t sure how many will come forward. Around 940 claims have so far been filed by the families, the people said.
The total potential payout could be $1 billion or more.
The question is whether any of the funds will go to the ACLU or any other leftist activist groups.
The Obama administration had a notorious habit of encouraging its lefty allies to sue the government and then settling with them, which amounted to using taxpayer money to fund their political activism.
Some government lawyers have viewed the payouts as excessive for people who had violated the law by crossing the border, the people said. One government lawyer threatened to remove his name from the case out of disagreement with the potential settlement offer, the people said.
I’m sure they’ll be canceled soon enough for doing their jobs.
In another instance, a Department of Homeland Security attorney involved in the settlement talks complained on a conference call that the payouts could amount to more than some families of 9/11 victims received, one person said.
As Rep. Dan Crenshaw pointed out, “if a service member is killed in action, their next of kin gets an insurance payment of $400,000.”
That’s the Biden administration. Illegal aliens first, soldiers last.
