Biden Admin Considering Sending Cash Payments To Latin America To Stop Illegal Immigration: Report
Honduran migrants take part in a new caravan heading to the US with Honduran and Guatemalan national flags in Quezaltepeque, Chiquimula, Guatemala on October 22, 2018. - US President Donald Trump on Monday called the migrant caravan heading toward the US-Mexico border a national emergency, saying he has alerted the US border patrol and military.

Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly considering sending cash payments to Latin America to stem the massive surge of illegal immigration that is flooding America’s southern border.

Reuters reported:

The possible cash transfer program would be targeted at people in the Northern Triangle region of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told Reuters in an interview, without saying who exactly would receive the cash.

Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, claimed without providing any details that the money would not be doled out to people. The administration is also considering sending coronavirus vaccines to the region.

“We’re looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons,” she said. “The one thing I can promise you is the U.S. government isn’t going to be handing out money or checks to people.”

The Washington Post reported this week that the explosion in illegal immigration happening on the southern border is so severe that U.S. officials had to change the y-axis on their chart so that it would fully show the level of monthly enforcement data.

“During the busiest month along the Mexico border in nearly two decades, U.S. authorities took 172,331 migrants into custody in March,” the Post reported. “The total included 18,890 teens and children who arrived without parents, a record quantity that overwhelmed U.S. shelter capacity and produced crisis-level crowding inside government border tents.”

report by CNN last week said that the U.S. is on track to see 2 million migrants on the southern border this year, which is more than the populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and Alaska — combined.

Border sheriffs have stated that they had the situation under control during the Trump-era, while other top former federal law enforcement officials have warned that Biden is providing “extreme incentive” for illegal immigration. Stephen Miller, a former senior White House official, warned that Biden’s immigration agenda would “fundamentally erase the very essence of America’s nationhood.”

Democrat lawmakers have warned that Biden’s agenda will “be catastrophic for [the Democrat Party]” and “for our country.”

Former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said that the catastrophe on the border did not happen “by accident,” but “by design.” “This is designed to be this way,” Homan said. “They’re bringing millions of people into this country who will now be counted on the census because Joe Biden overturned that, which leads to seats in the House [and] Electoral College in elections. This is power over public safety; the quest for power over protecting American citizens.”
