Americans were shocked when reports claimed Biden wanted to pay off people who came here illegally. The news was that his administration would pay up to $450,000 to individuals detained during the Trump administration. At a time when Biden has inflicted inflation, a worker shortage, rising fuel prices, and more onto Americans—he wants to spend nearly a billion on outsiders?
Needless to say, few people are happy.
But now we are getting mixed signals. When pressed by Fox News over this report, Biden flatly denied it. He even said they were peddling “garbage.” Garbage that clearly came from his Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services. Now, far-left activist group, ACLU is slamming Biden’s response.
From NY Post:
President Biden “may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department,” the ACLU charged Wednesday, after he labeled as “garbage” a news report that his administration is considering $450,000-per-person payouts to families separated after illegally crossing the US-Mexico border.
In a statement, ACLU executive director Anthony Romero warned Biden that he risked “abandoning a core campaign promise to do justice for the thousands of separated families.
Well, this is odd. Biden stated quite clearly when confronted by Peter Doocy that reports he was giving out cash to border jumpers were “garbage.” He followed that up by saying, “That’s not gonna happen.” Soon after, the ACLU spilled the beans in a press statement.
The far-left activist group accused Biden of not being “fully briefed” over the proposal put out by his own Justice Department. That’s the best way they can say Biden doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The leftist group hammered Joe, saying his refusal to support the idea is a betrayal of what he said during the campaign.

During the election, they claim, Biden vowed to “remedy” Trump’s policy of detaining migrants who crossed over the border illegally. Peddling the lie that Trump separated families (something Obama did, as well as putting kids in cages), Biden said he would fix this “criminal” policy.
In the warped minds of those who run the ACLU, that seems to mean handing out tax dollars to people who shouldn’t be here in the first place. Instead of deporting these border jumpers and making sure they can’t come back, the ACLU wants to give them a sum that most Americans won’t earn in ten years.
So, who is right? Is Biden simply squashing rumors that the media concocted? Or is the ACLU right and Biden is totally off his rocker? Does he even know what his administration is even up to?
