A stunning new report has revealed that the Biden regime is planning to fork over nearly half a million dollars to every single illegal alien who was separated from their family at the border.
The move by Biden and his administration would offer roughly $450,000 to those who entered the country illegally and were subsequently split from their families under the previous administration’s zero-tolerance policy in 2018.
“The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift,” The Wall Street Journal reported.
“Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child.”
The report said that many families would likely get smaller payouts depending on their circumstances and that the total payout could amount to more than $1 billion of tax payer money spent on illegal immigrants.
The disastrous move comes as the Biden administration looks for an easy way to resolve nearly a thousand lawsuits that have so far been filed by migrant families who should not have come to America in the first place, as they did so illegally.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) claims that there are several thousands of individuals that were separated under the policy.
The Journal added, “The discussions have been at times contentious. They have taken place over the past few months among a group of dozens of private lawyers representing the families and government lawyers. Some government lawyers have viewed the payouts as excessive for people who had violated the law by crossing the border, the people said. One government lawyer threatened to remove his name from the case out of disagreement with the potential settlement offer, the people said.”
Former DHS Secretary Chad Wolf slammed the move, saying that there were “no limits” to what the Biden administration would do in terms of implementing policy that was damaging to border security and immigration, adding that this latest move “may be at the top of the list.”
Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan said of the move, “If this were to happen, the level of anger & hatred Americans would feel for their own government would be unprecedented. The act of stealing that level of taxpayer dollars from Americans citizens and giving them to lawbreaking illegal immigrants would set off a powder keg.”
President Biden’s full blown incompetence has perhaps revealed itself the most in terms of the United State’s southern border security – or lack thereof.
The border crisis reached a new level on Friday as data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) showed that the Border Patrol has made approximately 1.66 million arrests of illegal aliens entering the U.S. from Mexico for Fiscal Year 2021.
“Border crossings surpassed 1.6 million annually at least twice recently, in 1986 and in 2000,” The Wall Street Journal reported last week. “In 2019, when crossings reached a peak under the Trump administration, the Border Patrol made about 850,000 arrests.”
The Journal added that the 1.66 million arrests in Fiscal Year 2021, which started in October 2020, was “the highest annual number ever recorded.”
CBP said that it recorded 192,001 encounters along the southern border for the month of September, a slight decrease from the previous month.
