Here, gentle readers, is a dose of real, not D/S/C manufactured, reality. We’ll discuss D/S/C faux reality shortly. Two adults commit a crime—let’s say they rob a liquor store—and when they’re stopped in their getaway car, they have their two young children with them. What happens to the kids?
Simple. They have committed no crime, and even if they did, they cannot, by law, be held in an adult jail, so the kids and parents are going to be split up, only to be reunited when and if their self-initiated involvement with the criminal justice system ends. If the kids have committed no crime, they’ll be immediately released to relatives, or if there are none, to social services who will care for them until a better arrangement can be made. One thing is certain: children are going to be separated from their parents if their parents are going to jail. It’s not only the law, it’s bare basic sanity. That doesn’t always accompany law, but in this case, it does. It has nothing to do with Donald Trump, unlike everything else in the universe.
And if you were wondering–yet again/still–just how crazy America under the Harris/Biden/Whoever Administration—Joe Biden, Temporary President—has become, this crazy:
President Joe Biden’s administration is considering a plan that would give border crossers, who were subjected to former President Donald Trump’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy, about $450,000 each in a reparations-style payout.
Trump had instituted the Zero Tolerance policy at the United States-Mexico border in 2018 to reduce illegal immigration. The policy, as Breitbart News reported at the time, had been effective since at least before 2001.
Hmmm. 2009 to 2017 would be mostly The Age of Obama, Joe Biden, Vice President. I wonder why they didn’t right the terrible wrong of American immigration law lawfully enacted by Congress? They had seven years…
As a result of the policy, adult border crossers were often put into separate holding facilities from the children they arrived with at the southern border. Since then, the border crossers who were subjected to the policy have sued the federal government.
What’s not being said here is the reality of the law, at local, state and federal levels, that children may not be held in adult incarceration facilities.
The Biden administration, the Wall Street Journal reveals, is now weighing whether to provide those border crossers with $450,000 each as part of a payout in the lawsuits filed.
In some instances, a migrant family could secure about $1 million from such a payout, more than some of the American families received following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The payout, overall, could cost American taxpayers more than $1 billion.
The Journal reports:
‘The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma. [Emphasis added]
The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said. Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child, the people said. Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said. [Emphasis added]…
In another instance, a Department of Homeland Security attorney involved in the settlement talks complained on a conference call that the payouts could amount to more than some families of 9/11 victims received, one person said. Other people said senior departmental officials were in alignment on the amount and disputed the 9/11 comparison, given that the U.S. government hadn’t been responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The 9/11 victim compensation fund averaged awards to the dead of around $2 million, tax-free, at the time an unprecedented payout, the administrator of the fund has said. [Emphasis added]’
What’s happening is merely a logical, but utterly insane, extension of the “sue and settle” tactics long practiced by D/S/C bureaucrats and D/S/C administrations. The government wants some policy or benefit, but it’s not politically possible to do it or it’s illegal, so they collude with some Socialist/Communist group to sue the government demanding what both want. The Government immediately “settles” the lawsuit, claiming it’s in the best interests of America. Always, not only do both groups get the policy they want, the groups–and their lawyers–get huge piles of taxpayer money. And yes, federal judges know exactly what’s going on; they’re in on it too. Even if the agreement is illegal, it will take many years–if ever–for it to be overturned. Government and it’s allies get what they want, and the allies get millions they’ll never have to repay.
In their lawsuits, border crossers allege that their separation from the children they arrived with at the U.S.-Mexico border spurred mental health issues and trauma that they have struggled to overcome.
Let’s see if we correctly understand this: the “border crossers”—AKA illegal aliens—knowingly and willfully broke American law, which required their children be held separately—to provide them the protection their parents willfully and knowingly denied them–until their cases were resolved. Any “mental health issues and trauma” they felt were caused not by the US Government, but by their illegal actions.
Lawyers for the border crossers want around $3.4 million per family unit.
Oh, is that all? I have mental health issues and trauma from all that’s been inflicted on America and me for the last 10 months. Where are my millions?
Such settlements have occurred in recent years. For example, in June 2019, a family of Honduran border crossers won $125,000 in damages after they filed a lawsuit claiming the federal government had mistreated them when holding them in detention facilities.
But they’re not going to get mere millions for their “mental health issues and trauma,” no:
In May, reports circulated that as part of such a settlement with border crossers subjected to the Zero Tolerance policy, the Biden administration would fly deported illegal aliens back to the U.S. and provide them with amnesty to remain in the country, as well as payments and social services.
Well of course they will. America dead last–if considered at all. If I illegally enter Mexico, or any other country, will I get millions when they lock me up? Of course not. Only in America do “leaders” think so little of their country and countrymen they would pay foreign criminals millions for breaking American law.
We might keep in mind a great many of the “unaccompanied minors” being drug across the border by adults were not and are not, in fact, their biological children. They’re useful meat props, nothing more. One might also consider parents allowing their children, or forcing them, to cross entire countries, alone, where they are beaten, raped, forced into sex slavery and the drug trade might also be breaking the laws not only of their country, but American law. How much is the “trauma” they suffered for abandoning their children worth to D/S/Cs?
This, gentle readers, is the kind of outrage, the kind of anti-America hatred, the kind of absolute insanity and utter disregard for the rule of law, that is pushing Americans closer and closer to the edge of the abyss from which there is no turning back. Biden and his lackeys were going to be the adults in the room. They were going to restore norms and regular order. They were going to be honest and transparent. They were going to protect the Constitution. They were going to bring America back and make it respected again.
Can they really be so stupid as to do this when the BMD— Biden Made Disaster–of runaway inflation is destroying American families and lives? Can they be so stupid as to do this when the BMD of vaccine mandates is throwing millions of Americans—essential public safety and health workers among them—out of work and into poverty just before Thanksgiving and Christmas, a Thanksgiving and Christmas that are going to be awfully spare for millions of families due to the BMD supply chain crisis?
Or is it they believe we’re stupid, too stupid to know what they’re doing? Do they really think Americans—Americans!—are going to put up with this? Or are they so drunk with temporary power they think themselves invincible? We know they hate Normal Americans, they make that plain every day, but can they really be that stupid? Are they really pushing to find and surpass the breaking point? Even Julius Caesar, Rome’s greatest military leader and emperor, is said to have had a minion follow him around, periodically whispering into his ear: “sic transit Gloria mundi”—“the glory of man is fleeting.” Some versions whispered: “remember: thou art mortal,” but the point is the same. Power is fleeting, and all men die.
Much more of this, and they’re going to find themselves dying that real reality.
