The Biden administration is reportedly considering paying illegal alien families who were “separated at the border” by the Trump administration $450,000 per person in taxpayer-funded settlements – despite the fact that they came into the country unlawfully and have no legal right to be here in the first place.
While American schools struggle to provide school lunches to children thanks to disrupted supply chains and American business owners work to get back on their feet after prolonged government shutdowns, the White House could spend upwards of $1 billion on the new program to resolve lawsuits brought by illegal aliens who – and I can’t stress this part enough – broke U.S. immigration law and are now mad at how they were treated.
From Yahoo! News:
Sources told the Wall Street Journal that the lawsuits demand a range of payouts, with the average request being about $3.4 million per family.
The Trump administration had at the time maintained that adults were sometimes – and not habitually – separated from the children they’d brought across the border if there was question as to whether the adult was actually related to the child, in an effort to combat the all-too-common problem of child trafficking by adults using kids as a golden ticket into the country.
Most of these “families” that could now see a taxpayer-funded payout include one parent and one child, the Department of Homeland Security told the Wall Street Journal. Families reunited by the Biden administration have already been granted a three-year parole period, allowing them to stay - and work - in the U.S.
