(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) President Joe Biden disagrees with his own administration’s plan to give some illegal aliens $450,000 in reparations, leading some to speculate that those calling the shots do not put much stock in his beliefs.
But after Biden bizarrely denied the plan announced last week to give the nearly half-a-million-dollar payouts to illegals separated during the Trump administration, a spokeperson on Thursday dialed back that denial once again.
White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden feels “perfectly comfortable” giving illegal alien individuals and families huge cash payments to atone for former President Donald Trump‘s decision to enforce America’s immigration laws and punish lawbreakers, Louder with Crowder reported.
These cash payments would go to illegal aliens who were “affected by Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy in 2018,” the Wall Street Journal reported.
The payments could exceed $1 million per family and would cost the federal government (aka US taxpayers) hundreds of millions.
Biden previously denied the report altogether and blamed Fox News’s White House correspondent Peter Doocy for “sending that garbage out.”
DOOCY TIME: "[T]here were reports that your administration is planning to pay illegal immigrants who are separated…at the border up to $450,000 each, possibly a million dollars per family. Do you think that that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?" pic.twitter.com/2JBnc1hy9j— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) November 3, 2021
“But it’s not true,” Biden said.
“So this is a garbage report?,” Doocy asked in a follow-up question.
“Yeah. $450,000 per person, is that what you’re saying? That’s not gonna happen,” Biden said.
The American Civil Liberties Union released a statement that said Biden didn’t know about his own Justice Department’s efforts to pay illegal aliens for breaking America’s immigration laws.
