This IS interesting….
The Wall Street Journal reported that the Biden admins Justice Department is working on settlements with Trump admin policy separated migrant families to tune of hundred’s of thousands of dollars…
The ACLU thinks this gonna happen also….
President Biden does NOT….
The lawyer’s who are probably working on this over at Justice maybe doing the right thing to ‘Right’ a wrong legally…
But the politics of this would come out ALL WRONG….
Imagine the media reports that the American Government /Taxpayers are paying ILLEGAL families up to $450,000 because Donald Trump’s border cops separated the parents from their kids at the border….
THAT could probably cost Biden any chance of a second term…..
Republican’s would be laughing….
The media would be going nuts….
And a LOT of American taxpayers would be fuming and certain to NOT vote for one Joe Biden come Election Day….
The way Biden’s numbers are now?
He might be asked to NOT run again….
Biden’s people CAN offer these families green cards and a few thousand ….
But Hundred’s of thousands checks just is NOT something President Biden wants to carry on his back for qa stupid and illegal act by Donald Trump & Co…..
One would think No Federal judge is gonna ‘order’ the American Govt. to do this much money either…..
President Biden on Wednesday denied his administration is considering paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to each migrant separated from their family under the Trump administration’s zero tolerance border policy.
“That’s not gonna happen,” Biden told reporters when asked about the reported plan.
The Wall Street Journal first reported last week that the administration was contemplating a payment of roughly $450,000 per person for separated migrant parents and children. Multiple news outlets later confirmed the Journal’s reporting.
The potential payments would come as the government faces numerous lawsuits from families separated under the Trump administration’s policy, which saw thousands of children taken away from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border….
“President Biden may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department as it carefully deliberated and considered the crimes committed against thousands of families separated from their children as an intentional governmental policy,” ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero said in a statement, urging Biden to “right the wrongs of this national tragedy.”….
“Honestly, this absurd idea feels like a satirical policy proposal that Republicans would have invented to make a parody out of the radical left,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on the Senate floor Monday….
This IS the kinda stuff that Biden is giving Republican’s (and Independent’s) votes against him and Democrats….
They outta make Trump and his assistant Stephen Miller make the payments to make things right….
