If the Biden administration wanted to persuade Americans that it was unconcerned about their economic woes, mounting shortages, and job insecurity, one method would be to provide financial assistance to illegal immigrant families.
According to sources familiar with the situation, the Biden administration is considering reuniting separated immigrant families for a fee of roughly $450,000 per person.
According to these sources, payments might reach up to $1 million per family, though final estimates vary. The majority of the families who entered Mexico illegally to seek safety in the United States consisted of one parent and one child. Although the statistics have not been finalized, they are expected to exceed $1 billion.
More than 940 families have filed lawsuits alleging that their children were separated from their parents after illegally entering the US from Mexico. Families claim their children had a variety of illnesses, including “anxiety” and “fear of strangers.” The average claim per family is $3.4 million, more than the amount obtained by 9/11 families.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which represents at least one of the families engaged in the case, contends that monetary compensation is insufficient and that families should be provided with a way to remain in the country. Others disagreed with the 9/11 analogy, claiming that senior government officials agreed on the amount. The ACLU’s Lee Gelernt adds, “The family separation policy is a historic moral stain on the society that must be thoroughly addressed.”
The Biden administration addresses a significant supply chain problem by finding cargo ships trapped off the coast, and Americans are watching helplessly. On the other hand, vaccination regulations lead Americans to lose their jobs or be forced to quit. A reasonable person would agree that paying lawbreakers with significant quantities of money may encourage them to break the law even more.
