In the wake of reports that the Biden administration wants illegal immigrants pay $ 450,000 each if their families were separated at the border during the Trump administration, several dozen GOP congressmen began pushing back.
House Republicans are demanding answers from members of the Biden administration for what they call a “gruesome decision.”

Plan to pay for illegal immigrants
The GOP members signed a letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security, Xavier Becerra, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.
According to reports, Biden’s team is working out a plan where immigrants and their families who entered the country illegally and were separated at the border would each receive $ 450,000.
At least 45 Republican House members led by Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC) also includes House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), GOP Caucus Chairman Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
The Republicans blew up the plan, writing: “Promising tens of thousands of dollars to those who entered the United States illegally will not only reward criminal behavior, but it will definitely send a message to the world that our borders are open and our rule of law will not be enforced. “
Will illegal immigrants have to be vaccinated before they get their $ 450,000 check from the Biden administration?

Biden could not wait to repeal Trump immigration policies
From the moment he walked into the Oval Office, Joe Biden made sure to scrap almost every Trump-era immigration policy which kept illegal immigration relatively under control. In addition to stopping construction at the border wall, Biden has also repealed the Migrant Protection Protocol, otherwise known as “Remain In Mexico”, which requires those seeking asylum in Mexico to stay until their trials in the US
Pray it also rolled back travel and immigration restrictions on citizens of majority Muslim countries, and held DACA in place.
Republicans who signed the letter to department secretaries say that these early moves by Joe Biden “the worst self-inflicted border crisis in history. ”
Biden is considering paying $ 450,000 to every illegal alien affected by Trump’s policies to stop them from crossing our border illegally, as compensation for “lasting psychological trauma.” The potential total could be more than a billion dollars in taxpayer money going to illegal people.

Big Time Pay-Out
According to reports from the Wall Street Journal, the solid price tag is in response to lawsuits filed by both parents and children, who claimed that the separations at the border led to their “lasting psychological trauma”.
According to the latest census, the median household income in the United States was about $ 67,000 in 2020.
In other words, Americans will have to work nearly seven years to earn the amount the Biden administration wants to pay to people who have entered the country illegally.
