Biden’s right: Payment to illegals is ‘garbage’
But open borders puppeteers within his close circles made him quickly reverse course
Earlier this month, as he seldom does, President Joe Biden took non-scripted questions from a reporter he wasn’t instructed to call on. A reporter asked the President about a Wall Street Journal report that revealed his administration was considering $450,000 payments to some 5,500 children and their illegal alien families who were allegedly separated when they crossed the southern border illegally while the Trump administration’s “Zero Tolerance” was in effect. The President, in his trademark “C’mon Man” fashion, called the proposal “garbage” and vowed it is “not going to happen.”
It was clear from the back and forth with the reporter, Mr. Biden hadn’t been briefed on the matter nor provided a card with a scripted response he could read. What we saw was a rare moment where Mr. Biden expressed his own thoughts about an issue to the American people. And in that brief moment, the overwhelming majority of Americans agreed with the President – large-scale payments to illegal aliens are “garbage.”
The Biden administration’s plan to reward illegal activity through payments estimated to total about $1 billion is one of the most egregious actions proposed by the administration to date and arguably in U.S. history. It is outright offensive to American taxpayers who would have to shoulder the additional financial burden to further fund this administration’s ideological open borders agenda.
After the president dismissed the proposal and went as far as to accuse the media of fueling the false reporting, the White House, as is typical with this administration, attempted to convince the American public that he didn’t mean what he actually said – because they knew it was true. They just hadn’t told their boss. It’s generous to say the White House scrambled to “walk back” the President’s comments. They went into full spin mode, saying that he was “perfectly comfortable” paying separated families. In their standard dismissive and condescending style, the administration expected us to blindly accept that his “garbage” comment actually meant the President fully supported the proposal. It’s B.S., and the American people know it is. Lying to the American people is just another factor, among countless others, why his approval ratings have plummeted. --->READ MORE HERE

Putting Americans last: Biden’s immigration payout:
The Biden administration will reward those who violate American law
President Joe Biden has taken another unthinkable step in jeopardizing Americans’ safety by offering a massive lump sum payment to illegal immigrants. His administration is in talks with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to pay illegal immigrants $450,000 per person, or $1 million per family, for “psychological trauma” they experienced in 2018 while crossing the border illegally. The settlement may amount to nearly $1 billion in payouts.
Not only does he require American families to fund these new payouts through their hard-earned tax dollars, but in doing so, Mr. Biden is sending a clear message: America will reward those who violate American law.
It also sends a message to those who serve on behalf of this country, who sacrifice their lives to defend its people and its laws.
For perspective, $450,000 is roughly seven times the annual median household income in our country. It exceeds by four-fold the death gratuity of $100,000 given to families that lost a loved one in military service and exceeds the $400,000 the Servicemember Group Life Insurance provides. To further emphasize the absurdity of this payout, it is nearly double the $250,000 cap a 9/11 victim may have received for getting cancer. For death claims to the 9/11 Compensation Fund, an average of $2 million was awarded – these illegal alien families can expect half that for breaking the law. This payout is almost $100,000 more than the maximum death benefit given to firefighters and law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty. This administration has no appreciation for the rule of law or the sacrifices of our soldiers and law enforcement in upholding it.
In a recent interview, Mr. Biden declared that the compensation was “deserved… no matter what the circumstance.” But the American public strongly disagrees. Recent polling states that 63% of voters, including 72% of independents, oppose such payments. Only 29% of voters support such a plan. This tracks closely with polling that finds only 23% of voters approve of his handling of the crisis on the southwest border. Over the last eleven months, the Biden administration has demonstrated it cannot handle the border or act in a manner that protects the American people. Indeed, Americans are still left behind in Afghanistan and fearing for their lives. --->READ MORE HERE
