The Biden administration is currently considering paying over 1,000 illegal immigrants $450,000 each as part of a settlement in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The ACLU is representing just over 1,000 previously deported illegal immigrants and their parents in Ms. L v. ICE. The lawsuit was filed in 2018 after the enforcement of Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” policy. Since children under the age of 14 are not allowed to be imprisoned in federal criminal jails, Trump’s policy resulted in parents of illegal immigrants being separated from their children after they were caught violating America’s immigration laws. Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” policy also helped to contribute to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s successful fortification of America’s southern border, whereby ICE reported the lowest levels of illegal immigration in 17 years during Trump’s tenure. However, according to the lawsuit, the policy inflicted “suffering and trauma” upon non-citizens and their families. It should be noted that the lawsuit fails to explain how the “suffering and trauma” that occurred due to Trump’s policies differed from the suffering and trauma that was caused when previous administrations upheld America’s immigration laws, or the suffering and trauma that is caused when any parent of a child is incarcerated, which ultimately separates them.

The Biden administration actively engages in settlement negotiations in the lawsuit and plans to settle instead of further fighting the case. Specifically, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and Department of Justice (DOJ) are in active settlement discussions and would be the organizations that ultimately administer the payments to the illegal immigrants. In total, the Biden administration is expected to issue upwards of $1 billion in settlement rewards to non-citizens that filed claims in the lawsuit, although the final amount could change depending on how the remaining discussions go.

While the $450,000 figure being considered is outrageous, it is just over one-third of what the lawsuit demanded. According to the lawsuit, the average family sought $3.4 million in reparations or over $1.5 million per person. For comparison, the families of American service members killed in combat are awarded a maximum of $400,000 in Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (SGLI).

Last week, Biden claimed that reports of the $450,000 payments were “garbage.” However, last Thursday, White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that Biden is “perfectly comfortable” with issuing reparations to illegal immigrants that filed claims in the lawsuit. Most recently, on Saturday, Biden yelled at a reporter when they attempted to get answers regarding the situation. At this point, Biden seemingly flipped from his statement denouncing the payments that he had made just days prior when he told the reporter, “Because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you’re coming across the border, whether it was legally or illegally, and you lost your child—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.” It is currently unclear why Biden lied and attempted to dismiss reports of the payments, especially considering there is documented evidence to the contrary.

Republican leaders are rightfully speaking out against this insanity. To quote Senator Chuck Grassley, “We should not be paying anything to people who break our laws.” Senator Mitch McConnell added to the criticism by saying, “This absurd idea feels like a satirical policy proposal that Republicans would have invented to make a parody out of the radical left. Oh, and the next thing you know, they’ll be sending out million dollar checks to illegal immigrants! But this is literally what the Biden administration wants to do.” Both Senator McConnell and Senator Grassley recently sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding that he clarify what the Justice Department’s official stance on the payments is.

Nobody should ever receive compensation for violating America’s immigration laws. Offering such payments under any circumstances creates a terrible precedent and only offers illegal immigrants even more incentives to put their children in danger in the hopes of receiving a hefty sum of money from the government. The Biden administration should not even consider issuing these kinds of payments in the midst of America’s immigration crisis that they themselves have created with their disastrous policies.

It is what it is. One man-made crisis after another with the Biden administration causing all of them. I can’t say I was terribly surprised when I read this story over a week ago. It is consistent with the left’s philosophy that the United States, as founded and through out its entire history, has been the root of all that is wrong with the world. So therefore, it should have to pay all those that feel aggrieved, for whatever reason, vast amounts of money as “just compensation” for whatever perceived sins the left is accusing us of at the moment.

This reparations mindset is kind of at the center of most leftist organizations around the world, whenever you discuss what should be done to “begin to make things right” in their distorted world view. Money and power being their underlying goal, no matter how they dress up their grievance message. So it is no surprise that the ACLU is pitching the idea and the Biden administration is seriously considering paying it. Whether the amount is $450K or somewhat more or less, that really doesn’t matter. What matters is it will open the floodgates to similar lawsuits being files by dozens or hundreds or other supposedly aggrieved parties for their piece of the pie. It will also serve as yet another incentive for attract millions more illegals aliens to this country, with the prospect of them all becoming rich. All while also being completed supported by our various taxpayer funded social welfare programs for life.

Finally, what makes this all possible is the complete acquiescence of the vast majority of American people to continue to accept all this without any meaningful pushback. History provides us with numerous examples of how this all ends, if we continue on this current path. As long as the American people continue to act like sheep, the Biden administration and their allies in Congress and elsewhere will continue to systematically rip this country down brick by brick.

Absolutely ridiculous idea to pay these people a dime. They are already getting compensation for food, Healthcare and free education for their children. You break the law, you get 0.

To think it was like pulling teeth to get a $600.00 Covid stimulus check out to many Americans as 1st proposed by Mitch McConnell only to see it FAIL miserably as for many Americans NEVER got it in the mail. This was right around the Georgia senate runoffs if memory serves me correct, Trump was shooting for $2000.00 checks & McConnell comes up with the $600.00 joke that never materialized for many, myself included…Quite frankly I didn’t want it that bad & I chose NOT to pursue it…
The point being is now look at how the illegal immigrants are being treated, i.e. a $450,000.00 payoff for families that have already illegally entered our nation…
If this is NOT a wakeup call to ALL Americans, I don’t know what is…Clearly this man has lost all of his marbles…The senile old man is jumping, i.e. limping from one crisis to the next crisis with reckless abandum…:~(

Hey, if the Democrat Party and DNC want to pay illegal aliens $450 K themselves then go for it!
Otherwise I could care less about their lawsuits. If we have money to burn then give it to the Homeless Vets and other American citizens who could use that money. It’s time for Congress to get off their lazy asses and come up with a true, common sense Bipartisan Immigration Bill that protects this country’s interests. It should not be written to allow a political party to import non citizens into this country.

As an immigrant, now a citizen, it is a slap to my face by paying these illegals for entering the U.S. by breaking our immigration laws. It took years for me to come to the U.S. A lot of paperwork and documentation and being vetted financially, if having skills, and having good health. Yet, the Democrats want these illegals who are unvetted to cross the border illegally and compensate them. It is disgusting. I am ready for an uprising.

I agree with Senator Grassley, no illegal person should be conpensated for crossing our borders. How do we (the American people) even know it was there child? It could have been someone else’s child they brought into the USA. NO, NO, NO! No money for illegal aliens should ever be considered.

Who came up with the $450K amount per person?! And can Biden do this via exec. order or on his own w/o Congressional approval? I cannot imagine enough Reps or Senators would approve this in numbers to pass it. Or is it Obama behind the curtain who is making his promised “fundamental change” ( read TAKE DOWN of OUR country) happen faster than was ever imagined? These people must be exiled to the scrap heap NOW. Obama is pure smug & arrogant disaster, and to think people are really considering running Michelle for President in ’24?! The entire corrupt cabal must be roundly and finally defeated.

This is based upon parents and children being separated ? You know, thousands of fathers are separated from their children every day in our “family” courts, in divorce or court actions that are forced upon the fathers and children by some judge. Should we not also compensate these fathers?

ACLU needs to be investigated as terrorists trying to take tax payers money for their part in supporting illegals. Let Biden and the Democratic members of Congress give their money to illegals and let them live on their walled properties.
