Senate Republicans Introduce Bill To Block Biden’s Massive Payments To Illegal Immigrants

Joe Biden sparked outrage from the public in recent weeks when it was revealed that his administration wants to pay almost half a million dollars to illegal immigrants who were separated from their familes at the border.

At first, Biden claimed that reports on this were “garbage” but it was later confirmed to be true.

Now Republicans in the Senate have introduced a bill to block this measure.

Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., Tom Cotton, R-Ark., John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell will introduce the Protect American Taxpayer Dollars from Illegal Immigration Act.

The legislation would bar the use of federal funds, including the Judgment Fund, which pays for court judgments and lawsuit settlements against the federal government, for illegal immigrants if the settlements are related to their detention at the border after Jan. 20, 2017.

The bill is in response to reported plans by the administration to settle with illegal immigrants who were separated from family members during the Trump administration and are suing the government as a result.
