President Joe Biden angrily raised his voice while trying on Saturday to justify his administration’s now-confirmed plans to dole out taxpayer money to illegal alien families. Recall that he’d initially tried to deceive the public about these plans just a week earlier.
At the time, The Wall Street Journal had just reported that the administration was mulling doling out up to nearly half a million in taxpayer funds to “compensate” illegal alien families who were separated from their children after they’d illegally migrated into the U.S. during the Trump era.
Questioned on Oct. 31st about this report, the president told Fox News’ Peter Doocy that it was “garbage.”
A couple days later, and after the ACLU contradicted the president’s claim, the White House fessed up and admitted that yes, there are plans in motion to dole out money to illegal alien families, though it tried to blame the “need” for such payments on former President Donald Trump.
FYI, the legally justified and necessary separation of children from illegal alien families began under former President Barack Hussein Obama.

Not til the Trump administration re-upped the policy out of necessity, in fact, did the mainstream left cry foul about the practice.
Now fast-forward to Saturday, when a reporter tried seeking some clarification on this matter during another White House briefing.
“You said last week that this report about migrant families at the border getting payments was ‘garbage,” …,” the reporter began before being cut off by the president.
“No, I didn’t say that. Let’s get it straight. You said everybody coming across the border gets $450,000. … The number is what I was referring to,” Biden muttered.
“Now, here’s the thing. … If in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you were coming across the border, whether it was legal or illegal, and you lost your child,” he said, drastically raising his voice, “you lost your child, it’s GONE, you deserve some kind of compensation, no matter what the circumstance.”
“What that will be, I have no idea. I have no idea,” he then added.
And so in other words, it could theoretically be $450,000; he himself said he had “no idea.”
The only thing that seems clear is that the president is OK with doling out payments to illegal aliens, even as American citizens suffer from the inflation that his policies have exacerbated.

Just to double check, the reporter then asked, “You’re okay with DOJ negotiating a settlement?”
The president refused to reply and instead called on another reporter.
The assumption is that was a tacit “yes.”
Note that these payments will be going out even as actual U.S. citizens are suffering because of the president’s policies, from his exorbitant, inflation-triggering spending, to his draconian vaccine mandates.
So businesses will get fined $14,000 (per employee) if they don’t comply with Biden’s vaccine mandate.
And illegal aliens get a $450,000 payout for “damages” for crossing our border illegally…

Biden will give $450,000 to every illegal immigrant but strip military veterans of their pensions and VA entitlements if they reject his federal mandate.

I’m completely Disgusted how Biden & the Dems are selling out to the illegals paying them $450,000 a family being separated at the border to just get a vote! They should be held for Treason! There needs to be a lot more support to Veterans & US Citizens that are in Need!

Americans will be fined for not complying with Joe Biden’s mandates but illegal immigrants will receive a check for $450,000.

Unlikely Biden will offer $450,000 to the families of American citizens killed by illegal aliens. @tedcruz

If the Biden administration follows through with the $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants, this nation will come unglued.

They’ll also be going out as an untold number of Americans and U.S. allies remain trapped in Afghanistan thanks to the administration bungling the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the now terrorist-run nation.
The Biden Administration should be more concerned with getting the 14,000 legal permanent U.S. residents & green-card holders out of Afghanistan than it is about the $450,000 payments to illegal immigrants.
Their priorities are all wrong.

Speaking last week about the administration’s plans, Florida Gov. Ron Desantis, whom many hope challenges Biden in the 2024 presidential election, slammed the president, noting that he’s never witnessed something so foul in his career.
“I mean, you think about it, Americans are getting more in their gas bills, they’re getting more in their grocery bills. You’ve had all kinds of really bad policies throughout our country that has limited freedom, and you’re going to turn around for that and you’re going to do $475,000 for an individual that came illegally to this country? he said.
“I’ve seen a lot in my day. I’ve seen a lot that’s happened over the last nine or ten months that I didn’t think I’d ever see. But this takes the cake.”
