But if that isn't bad enough, the Biden White House is about to really outrage tens of millions of American taxpayers: According to The Wall Street Journal, the administration is "in talks" to pay $450,000 each to hundreds of thousands of migrants who crossed illegally into the U.S. and were "separated" during the Trump administration, when that president was enforcing immigration laws.
The paper reported exclusively:
The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.
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 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 paper continued. "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."
In all, the payouts could amount to more than $1 billion -- which is lunacy considering that a) these people are not citizens of our country and therefore should have no right to file any lawsuits; and b) they literally broke into the country to begin with, in direct violation of U.S. laws, so American taxpayers do not owe these people anything, period.
And yet, given the insanity of the current regime's open border policies, which have not only led to more than 1.7 million 'encounters' with illegal aliens this year alone but have allowed Mexican cartels using Chinese ingredients to flood our country with deadly fentanyl, now comes the insult of paying people off who gave every U.S. citizen the bird.
But let's not kid ourselves: This is the regime and the deep state Marxists running it giving Donald Trump the middle finger as well.
"As part of a so-called zero-tolerance enforcement policy, immigration agents separated thousands of children, ranging from infants to teenagers, from their parents at the southern border in 2018 after they had crossed illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S.," the paper reported.
"In some cases families were forcefully broken up with no provisions to track and later reunite them, government investigations found. The lawsuits allege some of the children suffered from a range of ailments, including heat exhaustion and malnutrition, and were kept in freezing cold rooms and provided little medical attention," it added.
The solution was simple: Don't try to enter America illegally. Period.
But they came anyway.
Trump's 'separation policy,' by the way, was also used by Barack Obama. His policies were famously exposed by CNN, of all outlets, in 2014, when the network aired photos of migrant children literally sleeping in cages.
But it's Trump these lunatics seek to punish, and they don't care if they scarf up a billion dollars in taxpayer money to do it.
Either we have borders or we don't have a country. Tell us again how these Biden sycophants are so 'loyal to America' when they obviously hate America.
