He sways with the wind, follows the tides, and adheres to the political trends — it’s Joe Biden, a career politician who knows his party is in serious danger.
The defeat of Terry McAuliffe along with a slew of other GOP victories sent Democrats into a panic, unable to process what had just happened.
The blame game commenced and Joe Biden didn’t know what hit him after he touched down in the U.S. after the European wing of his Embarrassment Tour. The cognitively deficient president rushed to place blame on party lawmakers who have failed to pass his Build Back Better spending plan. Biden took zero accountability for his role in McAuliffe’s defeat.
Now the “president” is pretending a radical immigration policy, one which pays $450,000 reparations to each illegal immigrant who was deported under Trump’s “Zero Tolerance” policy, was merely a rumor. He hopes the American people have selective amnesia over his multiple lies.
Last month, reports circulated that Biden’s DOJ, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) were working to settle with a number of border crossers represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who claim they have suffered trauma as a result of the 2019 Trump-era policy.
As part of the settlement, attorneys with the DOJ, DHS, and HHS are considering a plan that would give each border crosser about $450,000 and family units about $1 million. The total cost of the payouts would reach $1 billion.
On Wednesday, while promoting vaccines for the Chinese coronavirus, Biden claimed reports about the $450,000 payouts were “garbage” and called them “not true.”

Biden’s really walking a tight rope with his repudiation of illegal immigrant reparations. His influence amongst the far-left is already in question and without their support, there’s zero chance that he comes anywhere near a reelection victory.
As many have noted, Biden’s $450,000 payouts to border crossers would far exceed the compensation provided to the victims of the September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorist attacks and of the Boston Marathon bombings.
In addition, analysis by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) calculated that the single payout for a border crosser under the proposal could feed 42 American families for an entire year.
Meanwhile, the total cost of the payouts could provide homes to nearly 80,000 homeless Americans for a year or could forgive student loan debt for more than 27,000 American college students and graduates who are struggling to move up the economic ladder.
