Biden is 'in the loop' on money to illegal immigrants

White House Senior Adviser Cedric Richmond would not confirm nor deny that the Biden administration would be making payments to illegal immigrants who were separated from their children under the Trump administration, but insisted that President Biden is up to speed on the situation despite seemingly contradictory comments on the subject.

On Wednesday, Biden had denied that a report about possible $450,000 payments to people separated from their families was real, leading the ACLU to claim that he "may not have been fully briefed" about what the Department of Justice was doing. On Saturday, the president came out in support of payments.

"The president’s in the loop," Richmond told "Fox News Sunday," noting that Biden said all along that his Justice Department would be independent.

Biden's claim that the payments were not real came in response to a question from Fox News' Peter Doocy, who asked whether they would incentivize illegal immigration.

"If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah. But it’s not true," Biden responded.

On Saturday, however, Biden said an immigrant – legal or illegal – would  "deserve some sort of compensation no matter what the circumstances" if they were separated from their child.

Richmond claimed that this was not a contradiction because when Biden responded to Doocy’s question, he was really saying that "it was an absurd question from the beginning" because "no one’s coming somewhere to lose their child." This, despite Biden stating that "yeah," it would be an incentive if it were true, insisting that it was false.


Biden has been lying about not giving free money to people who tried to sneak into our country, and now will pay them half a million dollars each.

"In 2018, the Trump administration announced its "zero tolerance" policy, in which the Justice Department initiated criminal prosecutions of every adult illegally crossing the border, and was ended after widespread opposition. The policy resulted in the separation of thousands of families, including those with infants, some only a few months old, because children can't be kept in federal jail with their parents............

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a class-action lawsuit in 2019 seeking damages for the toll the separations took on families, and attorneys representing families have filed separate claims.
The Justice Department has told attorneys representing those families that the settlement figures reported in the media "are higher than anywhere that settlement can land," ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero told CNN............

It's sad , but hopefully she can take comfort in giving her children a better life. I still think of that Cuban boy, the one where his mother died and his father took him back to Cuba. The video says they went to live with their father.
