President Joe Biden is trying to convince America that he has a plan to keep illegal immigrants from crossing our southern border.
But Republicans are exposing Biden’s shady plan for what it really is.
Republican Reps. James Comer of Kentucky and Jason Smith of Missouri “declared their concern Monday over a reported plan by the Biden Administration to send cash payments to Central American countries to help address the root causes of the migrant crisis,” reports Breitbart News.
Per a letter from Comer and Smith:
In the midst of a border crisis propelled by the Biden Administration reversing successful [Trump-era] deterrent policies, it is worrisome that the administration’s solution isn’t to reinstate those policies or replace them with workable solutions, but instead to funnel more money to pay countries to dissuade their citizens from breaking U.S. laws, particularly countries with corruption concerns.
Ambassador Robert Jacobson, the outgoing White House Border Coordinator, recently stated that a conditional cash transfer program would be targeted at residents of Northern Triangle countries but cautioned that “the U.S. government isn’t going to be handing out money or checks to people.”
The strategy of sending cash payments to foreign countries to stem the tide of illegal immigration caused by Biden Administration policies [of rolling back Trump’s successful deterrent measures] is naive and misguided. Moreover, the countries identified as potential recipients include some of the most corrupt countries in the world.
Biden created this crisis, denied it exists, and now thinks he can buy his way out. @RepJamesComer and I sent a letter to the Biden admin demanding answers about this naïve and misguided proposal. pic.twitter.com/BuzuB2ahxg
