(RightWing.org) – Is the Biden administration playing a game of hide and seek with America? Or, is something more nefarious happening inside our government? It’s difficult to discern what is going on with this administration, especially regarding illegal immigration. It seems at times that Biden is more concerned with non-citizens who break America’s laws than citizens. In a poll released in early July, respondents appeared to agree.
On Thursday, October 28, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the ACLU were working on a settlement that could provide up to $450,000 for illegal immigrant minors separated from their families in 2019 and an additional $450,000 for parents. On Wednesday, November 3, President Joe Biden finally weighed in on the matter and suggested the report was bogus, which was news to the ACLU.
Biden Says the Report Is Garbage, But Is It?
According to the Wall Street Journal report, government lawyers and attorneys for the ACLU representing the illegal immigrants were closing in on a deal to avoid a court trial. Government attorneys argued it would be risky to go to court and easier to settle the dispute.
On Wednesday, the president held a press conference to talk about minors and COVID-19 vaccinations. Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked Biden if the payouts would incentivize more illegal immigration. The president replied by stating the report was garbage. When pressed further, the president said the payouts weren’t going to happen.
After the press conference, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero suggested the DOJ may not have adequately briefed officials about the ongoing negotiations. Romero added that Biden made a campaign promise and warned if he didn’t keep it, justice for thousands of illegal immigrants was somehow at risk. The ACLU leader said the administration needs to rectify the Trump administration’s alleged lawlessness.
Does the ACLU Hear Itself?
Here’s the problem for the ACLU’s argument…illegal immigrants broke the law, forced American taxpayers to spend billions of dollars on protecting the border and providing food, healthcare, and child education. The Obama/Biden and Trump administrations followed the same policies, but somehow, the Trump administration is the one who broke the law.
It seems the Biden administration is rewarding illegal immigrants by allowing them to break the law without consequences. Then, he accuses the US of breaking the law without a trial and makes thousands of people instant millionaires with taxpayer dollars. How is that not an insult to American citizens who struggled all their lives to follow the law, work hard, and live within their means?
So, is Biden right, or is he out of the loop and just signs off on whatever federal agencies want? This is the same symptom that led to the election of Donald Trump in 2016 and contributed to the Republican victories in Virginia on Tuesday.
America may be waking up, is Joe Biden?
Don’t bank on it.
