Biden Administration Gives $1,000 Smartphones to Illegal Immigrants

(Jim Patrick, Law Enforcement Today) While most Americans cannot afford to fill their gas tanks, buy chicken and other groceries or buy a used car, the Biden administration is providing $1,000 smartphones to illegal border crossers, allowed into the country by the administration’s virtual “open” sign, according to the Daily Wire.

This past week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, a modern-day Baghdad Bob, defended the administration’s plan when questioned by the press about the decision to give the smartphones to illegals.

During a press briefing, Psaki made the absurd claim that it “is part of our effort, as individuals come into the United States and individuals who are entering who will proceed to immigration proceedings, to monitor and track where they are.”

Psaki was answering a question posed by Peter Doocy of Fox News…

During the presser, Doocy pressed Psaki about the possibility that illegals would merely throw away the phones, thus allowing them to avoid being tracked. As Fox News reported:

Doocy asked Psaki whether there was concern by anyone in the administration that some migrants may decide to take the phones and “toss them.”

“Do you have a record of people throwing phones away?” Psaki asked in her typical condescending, snarky voice.

“I’m just asking if that’s a concern,” Doocy replied.

“Our concern is ensuring that individuals who irregularly migrate to the United States proceed through our process of, you know, of course, being monitored, but also participating in hearings to determine whether or not they will be able to stay,” Psaki replied [emphasis added].

According to Breitbart, Psaki claimed the phones given to illegals were part of the Biden administration’s “alternative to detention” program at the border.
