(Republican Party News) – Newly released reports say that the Biden administration is currently in talks to start paying illegal alien families who ended up getting separated at the border back in 2018 around $450,000 per person.
The translation of this is that you and I, the American taxpayers, are probably going to be picking up the tab for this massive pay out. How generous of Biden to forcibly take away our hard earned money through taxation at the end of a gun and give it to these folks.
According to Infowars, agencies are currently working on a number of lawsuits that have been filed on behalf of the border-crossing “families” that claim the Trump administration subjected them to “lasting psychological trauma,” folks who are close to the matter said.
The Wall Street Journal reports, “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. Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child, the people said.”
“Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said,” the report said, adding, “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 payout could end up somewhere in the ballpark of a billion dollars.
Not long after this story broke, critics came out and shredded the move on various social media platforms.
“Congratulations to Americans who struggled to make ends meet during a pandemic,” said one user on Twitter. “Now you get to foot the bill for this.”
If this is true, this is absolutely nuts.
Someone breaks our laws, comes here illegally, and taxpayers end up paying them 10 times more than many honest hardworking Americans make in a whole year. Pathetic. https://t.co/f9Fr1sPyLk

– You lost your business
– Your relatives died alone
– You couldn’t hold or attend their funerals
But illegal aliens are getting $450,000 each because immigration law was enforced.

This is the kind of insanity that will bankrupt our country. What took Americans 200 years to build is being systematically dismantled by the Democrats https://t.co/zrsPvP6owP

If you're not in a complete rage about this wtf is wrong with you. The Biden Administration HATES AMERICA. Parent at a school board? You're a terrorist. Illegal alien trying to invade our border? Here's half a million bucks.

Americans get a little extra unemployment because lockdowns kept them from working while foreigners get a half million for breaking the law.
There’s a two tiered system in this country and Americans are at the bottom. https://t.co/zdCgtNJaxd

The Biden Administration wants you to give $1 million to illegal immigrant families who broke the law.
This is beyond open borders. It's an assault on American sovereignty. https://t.co/tCpWl9rmcr

“If you think Biden’s policies were a magnet to illegal immigrants before, just wait until illegal immigrants are paid $450k EACH for coming here illegally,” Senator Bill Hagerty from Tennessee went on to say. “Offering free open borders apparently wasn’t enough.”
“Doing this in the middle of a record border crisis is jaw-dropping,” he added.

For some individuals, the extremely large payout is just one part of what they hope to accomplish, which the lead negotiator on one of the lawsuits makes abundantly clear.
“President Biden has agreed that the family separation policy is a historic moral stain on our nation that must be fully remedied,” says Lee Gelernt, who currently works as the deputy director of the ACLU’s immigrant-rights project. “That remedy must include not only meaningful monetary compensation, but a pathway to remain in the country.”
Well, this isn’t all that surprising, right? We all know the radical left really loves to reward illegal aliens for breaking our immigration laws and flooding into the country. After all, they offer them protection for doing so in exchange for votes. How else are they going to pad their voter rolls?
