Republican lawmakers including Colorado U.S. Reps. Doug Lamborn and Lauren Boebert say those million dollar payouts to immigrants who cross our border illegally with underage children will spark a border surge from 150 nations.
And why wouldn’t it? If you weren’t here already, wouldn’t you be rounding up the kids from some cross-country camping and marathon hiking with thousands of your closest neighbors?
These parents are about to get $450,000 for themselves and another $450,000 for each child.
How Joe Biden and Democrats think this is a good is beyond our ken. But as usual, only Republicans are willing to take them to task.
ICYMI: I joined @RepGregMurphy in a letter slamming the Biden Administration’s plan to give $450,000 to illegal immigrants. This will only make the #BidenBorderCrisis worse. He must halt this insane plan. https://t.co/NBleXUNFnw

They’ve now heard $450,000 and they’re not slowing down. https://t.co/0nWInTkwzg

The New York Post has the letter from 45 Republicans, which notes the recipients of this lottery windfall knowingly broke the law, and should not be rewarded for it.
Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) noted the extreme difference in the $450,000 payments compared to the $1,300 stimulus checks sent to Americans during the coronavirus pandemic, slamming President Biden’s priorities.
“Joe Biden gave Americans a $1300 check but wants to give illegal immigrants $450,000, which is more than the 9/11 victims compensation fund. Amidst rising inflation, this is how he wants to spend your money. Priorities,” he wrote.
Americans pay on average about a third of their income to taxes.
We’ve lost faith in the public education system so here’s that math:
If you make $50,000 this year, that means nearly $17,000 of what you earned will go to the government to waste on decisions like this one.
If you’re okay with that, then by all means, keep voting Democrat.
