A report from the Wall Street Journal has jaws dropping over the outrageous payments proposed by the Biden administration to people who broke the law to enter the U.S illegally.
When you think you’ve heard it all from this reckless regime, here comes the proposal to pay $450,000 to anyone separated from their families at the border during the Trump administration. It’s no surprise that almost 1,000 claims have already been filed.
Dan Crenshaw compared this proposal to the payment to the family of a service member killed in action:
Biden wants to pay illegal immigrants $450,000 for their hardship while breaking our laws.
For perspective, if a service member is killed in action, their next of kin gets an insurance payment of $400,000.
Let that sink in. https://t.co/J3kuhDhyD5

The WALL STREET JOURNAL report states that payments of “around $450,000 a person in compensation” could be issued to illegal aliens affected by President Trump’s immigration policy “to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.”
Psychological trauma? These people came to our border willingly and broke the law. In what world is this grounds for “compensation”? Apparently, in Biden’s world where illegal aliens come before legal American citizens.
The Wall Street Journal points to a recent article: After Immigrant Families Are Reunited, Scars of Separation Remain…“Most of the migrant children are resilient, but some have signs of a disorder after the separation, including signs of major depression.”
“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…”
This is no different from when the judicial system separates a child from their parents when they are incarcerated for breaking U.S. laws. Choices these parents made have consequences, just as a legal American citizen chose to break our laws.
