By Ray Cardello for October 30, 2021 Season 6 / Post 40
First, let me set the record straight. This post is not a parody. When I first read tweets and posts about Biden’s intentions, I thought I might have been directed to the Babylon Bee site, but NO-this is true. This program may be the most egregious abuse of American taxpayer dollars in this era of stupidity and irrationality in politics. Joe Biden wants to give as much as $1 Million to every family that experienced separation crossing our Border during the Trump years.
The fact is undeniable that these people crossing into our country without going through a port of entry are committing a federal crime. You can call them illegal immigrants, or you can call them criminals. The labels are the same. Anyone who gets their clothes wet crossing the Rio Grande to come to America is violating American law. So how does Joe Biden justify rewarding any family that came into this country illegally because their undocumented child with them was taken into protective custody until the family structure could be validated? He cannot justify it enough to anyone who pays taxes.
This policy could be the best example of why people are upset and frustrated with the wasteful spending of the hard-earned taxes they turn over to our government. We feel totally helpless with the system. We work hard, we file our taxes, and we watch these feckless politicians waste it on pet projects, give it away to foreign countries for some corrupt government to suck it up, or they spend it in a feel-good manner. Giving illegal immigrant families a million dollars is the epitome of feel-good spending.
The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services consider payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family. However, the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said. 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 people said. Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said.
These payouts are more significant than any payout given to the families of 9/11 victims. The potential for illegal immigrant families to receive hundreds of thousands of dollars from the federal government while Americans continue to struggle under the Biden administration’s inflationary economic policy is not a great look ahead of the 2022 midterms.
One other example to increase your angst against this proposal is the payment to the family of a military member who loses his life in combat. The government gives $400,000 to the family of someone who gave their life for their country, but $450,000 to someone who comes here illegally. Joe Biden, please defend this.
One thing is for sure. Biden has slapped every American and legal immigrant in the face, whether the payout is a million dollars or four hundred thousand. There is no logical or moral need for any payout, period. The other byproduct of such a program would be incentivizing more people from foreign lands to journey to the American Border.
Should it ever come to fruition, this decision would further confuse us as to Biden’s motives. What he has done so far since January 20 appears to many of us to be a component in the internal destruction of our republic. Our enemies, China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran, must be having quite the chuckle at the state and direction of America. Biden may have spent countless hours riding the train, but he knows nothing of keeping us on track.
