What is shockingly apparent to those who have been around for a few years, is the left’s rapidly departing regard for anything traditionally pro-America.
Social justice activists are attempting to fix all the wrongs of the world today and are even trying to correct what they deem to have been wrongs committed hundreds of years ago in the past.
Their plan for the latter is to tear down statues, remove portraits, and rename buildings trying to erase any sign of former leaders whom they deem are no longer appropriate for display in the public view.
In apparent hypocrisy, this same group that calls for the righteous judgment against these former founding fathers, etc., whom the collective has targeted as doing wrong, makes a strange pivot by then defending criminals and illegal aliens demanding they are not prosecuted in spite of the law.
An exclusive article by the Wall Street Journal reveals the left is working on a way to not only get a pathway to citizenship for some illegal aliens but also to compensate each person, whose family members were separated during processing by DHS.
Here’s the report from the WSJ:
“According to people familiar with the matter, several agencies are working to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma, thus are seeking an astonishing amount of around $450,000 each person.
The U.S. Department 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.”
The ACLU who is representing families in one of the lawsuits has identified about 5,500 children separated at the border during the Trump Presidency, using figures provided by the government.
According to said Lee Gelernt, the deputy director of the ACLU’s immigrant-rights project and a lead negotiator on one of the lawsuits, “President Biden has agreed that the family separation policy is a historic moral stain on our nation that must be fully remedied.” Mr. Gelernt continued, “That remedy must include not only meaningful monetary compensation but a pathway to remain in the country.”
Their argument stems from some child/parent separations that took place under the zero-tolerance policy. The Trump administration in May 2018 implemented a zero-tolerance approach, which required agents to apprehend everyone crossing the border illegally, including those seeking asylum. The children with the adults were separated from their parents and put on a separate administrative track.
Many of the lawsuits argue the children are experiencing lasting mental-health problems from being separated from their parents while in harsh conditions. Some of the issues include anxiety, a fear of strangers, and nightmares.
According to Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s immigrant-rights, President Biden has agreed that the family separation policy is a historic moral stain on our nation that must be fully remedied,”. He continued arguing as a lead negotiator on one of the lawsuits, “That remedy must include not only meaningful monetary compensation but a pathway to remain in the country.”
“Damage class actions in this kind of case are pretty rare, it’s hard to think of a recent comparison,” said Margo Schlanger, who ran the civil-rights office during the Obama administration at the Department of Homeland Security.
So America the Biden administration is looking to compensate illegal aliens who brought their children with them across our border illegally but were separated by our immigration professionals to expedite the return of their parents to their home country.
Stopping the flow of illegal aliens across our border and removing the extra steps before deporting illegal alien children, will fix these issues preventing the parents and children from getting deported separately.
