Democrats block GOP attempt to derail Biden’s $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants:
Republicans moved last week to block $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants who were part of family separations during the Trump administration, but they saw their first attempt quashed by Senate Democrats.
The payments are being pondered by President Biden’s task force assigned to help reunify and compensate families snared by the Trump zero-tolerance border policy, which led to thousands of family separations.
Some migrants would be in line to collect $450,000 in federal money, and the total bill could top $1 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the negotiations.
Sen. James Lankford, Oklahoma Republican, proposed an amendment to cancel the payments during debate on a human trafficking bill in the Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, saying if the government does follow through, it will spark an even bigger surge of illegal immigration.
“There is no question that this will be the news in Central America — that if you go now, you’re going to get $450,000 if you cross,” he said. --->READ MORE HERE

WH: Biden now ‘perfectly comfortable’ with migrant payouts — after calling $450K report ‘garbage’:
President Biden is “perfectly comfortable” with cash payouts to migrant families whose members were detained separately after illegally crossing the US-Mexico border, White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday.
The answer comes just a day after Biden labeled as “garbage” a report that his administration is considering $450,000-per-person payments.
Jean-Pierre pointedly pivoted Biden’s assessment after the American Civil Liberties Union on Wednesday night said Biden “may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department.”
“If it saves taxpayer dollars and puts the disastrous history of the previous administration’s use of zero tolerance and family separation behind us, the president is perfectly comfortable with the Department of Justice settling with the individuals and families who are currently in litigation with the US government,” Jean-Pierre said at the daily White House press briefing. --->READ MORE HERE
