Former President Donald Trump spoke up on current president Joe Bidens’ absurd new plan involving paying nearly $500,000 as compensation for being separated from their children.
Trump claimed this to be Biden’s last-ditch effort to sully his predecessor’s presidency in an attempt to fix his already terrible approval rating.
Trump continued, adding that he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the proposal, stating that the security at the border is worse than it has ever been, and despite the zero-tolerance policy no longer being in use, more migrants have been detained during Biden’s first year of the presidency than during Trump’s entire mandate.
The ex-president criticized the strategy to allow people to enter the country illegally and then prosecute them later, as many just decide to ditch court anyways, becoming illegals in the process.
So, instead of solving the issue at hand, Biden proceeded to offer money to those „damaged” by the zero-tolerance policy, a total of $450,000 to each family.
Representative Dan Crenshaw slammed Biden’s payout plan, adding that service members’ families get less compensation.
To put this into perspective, a service member’s death will provide the family with only UP TO $400,000 in separate payments over the years, and top it off, those families who suffered losses at the hands of the US drones have never been compensated to this day.
Just during the year of 2020, dozens of homes and families in the middle east have been the target of drone strikes, but none have received any money, despite there being nearly $3 million allocated to these payments by the national defense authorization act.
Over the past 5 years, the US has handed out nearly $2 million in sympathy payments to family members of those who died for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
However, these payments would usually max out at $5,000, a fraction of what a living breathing family gets for being separated from their child.
One family was even paid a measly $131 dollars, making one wonder what sort of reasoning goes into these payments, and does the US government really values all human life the same.
Biden’s mistakes pile up as he struggles to keep his popularity rating from tanking further
As it stands, The Biden administration is on everyone’s side but ours, with the president’s payoff plan potentially costing the country billions of taxpayer dollars from the pockets of law-abiding, well-behaving, working citizens.
Just imagine waking up every morning, going to work, paying your taxes only for an immigrant who broke the law and entered the country illegally to get compensated with more than you make in a year.
Many have claimed this to be a slap in the face of the general public, with Biden’s approval rating taking the biggest hit.
Despite his plans to reunite the separated families, so far only 52 of the numerous thousands of families have been brought together, putting the president’s decision-making in question.
Many others continued to criticize the payoffs, comparing them to the embarrassingly low compensation paid to the families of 9/11 victims, with others claiming the context is different as the US wasn’t behind the 9/11 attack.
Biden continues to raise taxes as costs for matters like this one pile up on the daily.
It remains unclear when America and its people will become the president’s priority.
