GOP demands answers on Biden’s proposed $450K payments to illegal immigrants

Don’t look now, but it appears that American taxpayers will be shelling out $450,000 for each illegal immigrant separated at the border if the Biden gang has their way.

According to a just released report the Biden administration is considering a hefty payout to each illegal alien family separated under the Trump administration.

The secret deal being discussed has apparently reached the ears of outraged Republicans demanding an immediate response from Biden’s Cabinet secretaries regarding the explosive rumor currently being circulated on Capitol Hill.

House Republicans have begun drafting a formal letter to 3 of Bidens appointees including; Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

In the letter, House Republicans outline their severe concerns over reports that the agencies are considering paying $450,000 to illegal immigrants separated at the border under the Trump administration.

The rationale for this egregious abuse of taxpayer dollars is to compensate these persons for ‘lasting psychological trauma,’” the lawmakers wrote in the letter obtained by Fox News. “Do, however, note that these persons crossed into our country in a knowingly illegal manner, fully aware of the consequences of violating our rule of law.”

Rep. Greg Murphy, R-N.C., who is spearheading the Republican effort in attempting to get answers from the tight-lipped Biden Cabinet secretaries, is promising a full scale investigation, if they refuse to respond.

Promising tens of thousands of dollars to those who unlawfully entered the United States would not only reward criminal behavior, but it would surely send a message to the world that our borders are open and our rule of law will not be enforced,” the letter also reads.

The lawmakers charged that the Biden administration has been incentivizing illegal immigration since its first day in office. He struck several Trump-era border policies, which the lawmakers wrote has led to “the worst self-inflicted border crisis in history.”

Murphy and his colleagues also warned that if the Biden administration actually attempts to reward lawlessness at the American taxpayers’ expense to “thousands of illegal immigrants,” the administration “will unilaterally incentivize migrants from more than 150 nations across the world to surge our border.”

The letter signed by 45 House Republicans, including House Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, GOP Caucus Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York and Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, and led by North Carolina Rep. Greg Murphy detailed what the average citizen in America earns annually.

Compare this hefty compensation sum to the 2019 average median American household annual income of $68,703,” they wrote. “Furthermore, compare it to the maximum payout from a SGLI life insurance policy for military members, which are $400,000.”

Adding; “At a time when the American household is dealing with historic rates of inflation and the price of average consumer goods – groceries, gasoline, and heating – have risen exponentially, it’s shocking that our government is considering rewarding illegal activity for purely political reasons,” the Republicans also wrote.

Why is this potential compensation for families separated in 2018 under the previous administration and not those separated between 2008-2016 or since 2021?” the lawmakers posited.

The answer, of course, is “Trump Derangement Syndrome” especially when compared to the stumbling, bumbling and incompetent policies coming out of this White House and the potential of red tsunami in 2022 and again in 2024.
