Biden Considers Paying Over 1,000 Illegal Immigrants $450,000 Each

biden

The Biden administration is currently considering paying over 1,000 illegal immigrants $450,000 each as part of a settlement in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The ACLU is representing just over 1,000 previously deported illegal immigrants and their parents in Ms. L v. ICE. The lawsuit was filed in 2018 after the enforcement of Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” policy. Since children under the age of 14 are not allowed to be imprisoned in federal criminal jails, Trump’s policy resulted in parents of illegal immigrants being separated from their children after they were caught violating America’s immigration laws. Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” policy also helped to contribute to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s successful fortification of America’s southern border, whereby ICE reported the lowest levels of illegal immigration in 17 years during Trump’s tenure. However, according to the lawsuit, the policy inflicted “suffering and trauma” upon non-citizens and their families. It should be noted that the lawsuit fails to explain how the “suffering and trauma” that occurred due to Trump’s policies differed from the suffering and trauma that was caused when previous administrations upheld America’s immigration laws, or the suffering and trauma that is caused when any parent of a child is incarcerated, which ultimately separates them.

The Biden administration actively engages in settlement negotiations in the lawsuit and plans to settle instead of further fighting the case. Specifically, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and Department of Justice (DOJ) are in active settlement discussions and would be the organizations that ultimately administer the payments to the illegal immigrants. In total, the Biden administration is expected to issue upwards of $1 billion in settlement rewards to non-citizens that filed claims in the lawsuit, although the final amount could change depending on how the remaining discussions go.

While the $450,000 figure being considered is outrageous, it is just over one-third of what the lawsuit demanded. According to the lawsuit, the average family sought $3.4 million in reparations or over $1.5 million per person. For comparison, the families of American service members killed in combat are awarded a maximum of $400,000 in Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (SGLI).

Last week, Biden claimed that reports of the $450,000 payments were “garbage.” However, last Thursday, White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that Biden is “perfectly comfortable” with issuing reparations to illegal immigrants that filed claims in the lawsuit. Most recently, on Saturday, Biden yelled at a reporter when they attempted to get answers regarding the situation. At this point, Biden seemingly flipped from his statement denouncing the payments that he had made just days prior when he told the reporter, “Because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you’re coming across the border, whether it was legally or illegally, and you lost your child—You lost your child. It’s gone—you deserve some kind of compensation, no matter what the circumstance. What that will be I have no idea.” It is currently unclear why Biden lied and attempted to dismiss reports of the payments, especially considering there is documented evidence to the contrary.

Republican leaders are rightfully speaking out against this insanity. To quote Senator Chuck Grassley, “We should not be paying anything to people who break our laws.” Senator Mitch McConnell added to the criticism by saying, “This absurd idea feels like a satirical policy proposal that Republicans would have invented to make a parody out of the radical left. Oh, and the next thing you know, they’ll be sending out million dollar checks to illegal immigrants! But this is literally what the Biden administration wants to do.” Both Senator McConnell and Senator Grassley recently sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding that he clarify what the Justice Department’s official stance on the payments is.

Nobody should ever receive compensation for violating America’s immigration laws. Offering such payments under any circumstances creates a terrible precedent and only offers illegal immigrants even more incentives to put their children in danger in the hopes of receiving a hefty sum of money from the government. The Biden administration should not even consider issuing these kinds of payments in the midst of America’s immigration crisis that they themselves have created with their disastrous policies.

I say if Joe Biden wants to give illegals money so bad, let him write personal checks on his personal bank account.

The rest of us have bills to pay, mortgages to pay, and food and utilities that need to be paid.

Maybe Cruella Harris aka #2 Resident in the White House should put her money where her mouth is and write a personal check to each of the illegal aliens she feels so strongly about that she can’t be bothered to visit the border.

Hilarious! Yeah, just like all of the other cash and all that the bidens and most any other U.S. politico will do… take the money and run. I doubt the taxes will be fully paid on anything the rich earn and/or buy. IMHO

Biden is stupid. You don’t pay criminals for breaking your laws…you put them in jail. With Biden giving away all this money, makes me wonder who he thinks is going to pay for his debts. Also, if he wants to give away all this money, please send my share.

Dear Hidin Biden:
Your mother taught you crime doesn’t pay, but you never listened to the message. Since when do you have the right to overreach a function of the legislative branch? Since when do you have the authority to “flip off” the judicial branch? Since when do you have the authority to usurp the Constitution of the United States of America? Since when do you have the authority to permit people to walk through our southern border and get away with lawlessness that you punish law abiding United States Citizens and the 50 States for for even breathing disagreement with your edicts? Since when did law abiding citizens become your slaves? Since when do you have the right to weaponize federal officers and agencies to do your illegal bidding? You have a major problem with security: you’re compromised with China. Your family received money for favor and access.

What should be done before Biden proceeds is counter sue for cost and fines in the amount Biden wants to hand out. The ACLU was formed to provide legal American people that could not afford counsel a way of protection. What it has turned into is a Democratic Marxist orgination. I can’t think of a single thing they have represented lately except the rich and the crooked.

People who Illegally enter Russia, China, Cuba, Iran etc. get a jail cell, or many get a bullet.
We should consider the same rewards for illegal entry into the U.S. Like every other nation we have immigration laws and procedure that must followed. The first is an application for a VISA, then a vetting process before any VISA is granted. The process takes takes time but removes those who would do us harm. We only want those who will contribute, and assimilate and no handouts period.
Finish building the WALL.

Heck, if I was to “illegally” enter Mexico I’d be shoved in a jail cell, my family would be contacted and coerced into paying the Mexican guv’ment’s ransom (plus more, over time) and my family would be on the hook for any food, comfort, care I received while I was waiting in their gray bar motel thinking about what I might have done wrong. But when it comes to them entering our country? Ol’ slow joe is all about bringing them in and busing them north to the northern border states, hiding them out from any urges, desires to return to where they came from. After all, the left, the flaming liberals NEED these illegals, these “migrants”. They’re guaranteeing a full on liberal election at the next election. Ol’ slo’ joe will ensure they’ll be accomodated while waiting for their new “citizenship”.

This President has violated his oath office to defend and protect America and its people with his come one, come all, open door policy. Took only 19 to bring this country to a stop on 911. What are the odds when MS13, drugs, terrorists., human trafficking, infectious diseases, Covid freely enter this country go unchecked. Roughly 1.7 million thus far. Yet this admin. keeps the borders open to transform this country into a 3rd rate hell hole. Infrastructure bill and not ONE mention of completing the wall. No admin could be this incompetent creating one crisis after another, if not be design! An admin. deserving of no respect. They have not earned it!

Not only is the wall needed at the Sourthern border, it must be manned to insure that it cannot be overrun. Once it becomes obvious to the Mexican citizenry, Mexico will put a stop to it and probably stop it at their southern border.

It should be clear to American citizens that the Joe Hidin’ Biden Democraps are grossly baiting, drawing, and soliciting the illegal invasion of foreigners at the border. This is beyond sheer stupidity … it is insanity. I truly believe a significant reason Biden and his Democrap comrades are desperately trying to load up bodies that they can use to rig the next elections. I’m confident the Democraps can dig up enough info of deceased citizens to arrange to feed them in to the voting system. We are losing our Constitutional Democracy to a hybrid somewhat disguised form of Communism. If American citizens don’t wake up and demand this incursion our future is very dim.

Nope, my home is just a few miles from the Southern … and its not Mexicans who are flooding the border…. its Central and South Americans who are charging the border. And I vividly remember when OBummer triggered this border flocking. And, yes, I’m convinced that the reason it continues to be a policy goal of the Democrap Party is to allow them to use the illegals as part of their voter rigging. The “humanity” aspect by the Democraps is just political hogwash to deceive the US citizenry.

The illegal aliens willingly crossed our borders knowing it was wrong and using children as a chess pawn.

What is the reward if you cross the Russian border or China? Would they give out money?

China … yes. Soviet Union. probably. Especially so if the Democraps and the Clinton, Obama, Biden crowd could wangle some goodies for their support and cooperation. The facts already point to that behavior on their part..

Outrageous, completely insane behavior. They play with words back and forth. This is our country earned with honest blood and sacrifices of many Americans. How, where and by whom are those illegal plans are to become valid against our nation? Stop trying to sell our country through fairytale fantasies hoping that we the real Americans are going to buy into them. Do really use your brains and stop being puppets of those with twisted minds.
