Report: Biden admin proposal would provide cash payments in effort to curb migration at US-Mexico border

The U.S. is in the midst of a crisis on its southern border, with tens of thousands of migrants flooding into the country each month.

The situation at the border has gotten so bad, in fact, that the Biden administration is reportedly weighing the idea of paying migrants not to come.

Looking at all the options

In an interview Friday, President Joe Biden’s southern border coordinator Roberta Jacobson told Reuters that the proposed “conditional cash transfer” initiative would target migrants from countries including Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

“We’re looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons,” Jacobson said.

“The one thing I can promise you is the U.S. government isn’t going to be handing out money or checks to people,” she added without providing specifics on the would-be program.

In its own report, the Washington Examiner noted that according to Jacobson, no decision has yet been reached regarding whether to send coronavirus vaccines to the Central American nations as part of the effort to improve their economic well-being.

Still, the idea is under consideration.

An insult to struggling Americans

Of course, the suggestion that American taxpayers should send their hard-earned cash south of the border faced a swift rebuke from Republicans.

According to Fox News, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was among the loudest critics, writing in a tweet that Biden “wants to try and buy our way out of his border crisis.”

GOP House Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) also cried foul over the idea. “Let me get this straight: Actual American citizens are struggling,” he wrote in a tweet Friday. “But Dems want to send cash payments to people in Central America. And if you’re an illegal immigrant in New York? NY Dems want to give you $15,600. This is madness.”

Scalise was referring to a new $2.1 billion coronavirus relief deal struck by New York lawmakers last week designed specifically to aid undocumented immigrants who lost their jobs amid COVID-19. According to Fox Business, individuals who qualify will be eligible for a one-time payment of up to $15,600 — and every cent of it will be funded by taxpayers.

  1. Joe Bide & his entire family need to face life in prison, including Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and all of the Dems currently in office!

  2. Closing the border is free.
    Why should MORE of my tax money go to a stupid cause? Close the door. Oh, but I get it… it doesn’t quite fit the Plan, does it?

    1. WHY ARE “WE THE PEOPLE” not demanding an “impeachment of Biden” …he’s crossed the lines in so many ways its not funny….he NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE……AMEN!!!!!

      1. AMEN. Impeach Biden and Harris! Elect a new President and Vice President. We are ready to be a Banana Republic…. A Coup may be in order. Joe Biden is paying the Chinese back with our taxpayer money AND now is going to payoff Central American LEADERS who are Communists already to keep their people from crossing OUR border. How is that going to work for us????

  4. I just wrote the same thing a few minutes ago, he is bribing them to take them back. It’s his fault, isn’t that illegal, guess it won’t matter nothing sticks it’s like teflon.

  5. Waht abut the American Homeless? We are supporting Law breaking illegals’ and the homeless in America get nothing. This Administration is destroying America.

    1. THAT, Bill Collard, IS BIDEN’S ENTIRE AGENDA…..not to SERVE this country but to ANNIHILATE this country!!!! Welcome to REALIZATION….while Biden does the dirty work his “buddy, George Soros flutters about…..unnoticed with $$$ to pay the ppl. in charge to keep quiet…..WAKE UP AMERICA….WE’RE SINKING SLOWLY IN QUICKSAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    When are the American citizens going to wake up and really open their eyes and see what the democrats are doing to our country. The democrats need to be stopped in their tracks.

    1. That’s just it. People will never wake up! Too many stupid damn people think the Demonrats are just great! They think they’re for the citizens. These same people think babbling Biden is a good President. They will vote for them again just because they’re Demonrats! They don’t give a damn who they hurt or what they do! If they’re Demonrats they will stay in office!

      1. I agree, I wish more people would wake up to what the Democrats have done and want to do to this country.

      2. Gail, let’s just hope a bit more than half of those “idiots who think Democrats are doing a great job (and I don’t care what color you are) need to wake up and smell the smoke……….ALL DEMOCRATS REGARDLESS OF RACE ARE IN “THE TAKE” $$$$ TO RUN THIS COUNTRY INTO THE GROUND.

  7. Paying the migrants trying to get to the U.S. to just stay in place is like paying a blackmail threat. There is no end to paying. Once payments should start, that news wouldspread like wildfire. Even those who had decided to stay home could have a change of mind if money would be forthcoming. Collect the money, go home, then try it again in another month. There are so many trying to get into this country, they would figure no one here would know the difference! NOT A GOOD IDEA, MR. BIDEN!!!

  8. Your 100% right BIDEN IS A LIER, CHEAT, HE doesn’t Care about the people He just wanted the POWER and THE STUPID DEMS GAVE IT TO HIM NOW LOOK WHERE THE US IS A MESS AND THOSE PEOPLE WILL NOT LEAVE BIDEN AND HARRIS NEED TO BE TAKEN OUT OF OFFICE NOW I HOPE THE PEOPLE WHO
    CHEATED TO PUT HIM IN ARE PROUD OF THEM SELVES OUR COUNTY IS IN BIG TROUBLE AND BIDEN DON’T CARE OR THE DEMOCRATS THEY GOT THER WAY nOW RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE STEPPING WHAT A MESS BIDEN HARRIS AND THE DEMOCRATS HAVE MADE GOD BLESS OU COUNTRY AND PEOPLE BECAUSE THE DEMS ONLY CARE ABOUT THERE SELVES

  9. Just like everything else he comes up with. Open the border, put the kids in cages, let them drive and vote with out any proof they are Americans, give them money, lie about everything and blame everything on D.Trump. Now send money to them to keep them out. This fool has never had a good idea in his whole sorry life. People if it opens it’s mouth it is lying.

  10. Trump had the right idea. If these countries don’t stop flooding us with their people immediately shut off foreign aid.Paying more won’t help, but cutting it off will work. It has worked. These countriesd are glad to get rid of their excess overpopulation. Think how great it would be if we could get rid of 20-30 million illegals to Mexico immediately.?

    1. Exactly right Bill. Clinton, GW Bush, & Obummer all threw money to Iran, N. Korea, China, & practically every other country. Problem is now we have one who was illegally installed and not playing with a full deck. The whole world knows Biden is “off his rocker”!!!!!

  11. The entire mess was created by Biden and we cannot, for the sake of our beautiful country, allow the border crisis to morph into a sellout. We need to convey our feelings before it is too late!

    1. 100% CORRECT. WE ALREADY FUNNEL HOW MUCH INTO FOREIGN AID TO THESE COUNTRIES? NO MORE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS BEING SPENT .. THESE COUNTRIES HAVE A CRIMINAL GOVERNMENT,, TIME TO STOP SENDING THEM MONEY,, THE PEOPLE NEVER SEE IT ANYWAY.. WE CANNOT TAKE CARE OF THE ENTIRE WORLD.. AMERICA FIRST.

  12. Do not give them money are you stupid or what?? Finish puting the fence up so no more can come in and then put them on buses and planes and send them all back to where they come from, they dont need to be here, and take the fuel bill and make Biden pay for it all out of his money. then empeach him and Harrisand get them out of our hair so we can rebuild our country whats left of it. WE NEED TRUMP!!

  13. FORGET ANYMORE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS BEING GIVEN TO THOSE BREAKING OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS.. BIDEN INVITED THEM HERE, NOW WE SPEND 60 MILLION A WEEK TO KEEP THEM HERE, ILLEGALY. BEST SOLUTION, STOP BIDENS IDIOTIC IDEA.. SHUT DOWN THE BORDER.. FINISH THE FENCE, GET THE EQUIPMENT ALREADY PAID FOR AND JUST LAYING ON THE GROUND, GET IT UP AND GET BORDER PATROL BACK DOING THEIR JOBS.. CLOSE THE AWFUL ENCAMPMENTS AND METAL CONTAINERS AND CLEAN THE MESS UP

  14. Weather they liked the idea or NOT, they would have been better off, had they left the Trump immigration law intact, but that made too much sense and God forbid, if anything Trump did , should stand since he was supposed to be erased……So much for their “bright” ideas, but then again they never came across as a “bright bunch”……..

  15. BIDEN you are so STUPID…. Don’t give them a check to stay out of our country… What you need to do is CLOSE THE BORDER ASAP and BUILD THE WALL (money has already been appropriated for this).. Get off your lazy a_ _ and start acting like a president not an IDIOT.. Take your son Hunter and go to China and stop inviting all the illegal aliens to come to our country.. YOU ARE DESTROYING AMERICA… IMPEACH BIDEN, HARRIS, PELOSI, SCHUMER and others that are ruining our AMERICA

  16. Great Idea JOE, now every Nation in the WORLD will jump on the MONEY TRAIN. STOP BLOWIG OUR TAX DOLLARS. More and More I see OBAMAS THIRD TERM. Putting us DEEP IN DEPT, Spending MONEY ( OUR TAX DOLLARS FOOLISHLY ) an OBAMA TRADE MARK ) Weak FORIEGN POLICY, and RULING like a DICTATOR. An OBAMA, trade mark. ALLthe STUID hings you have done have been done without Consulting CONGTRSS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VOTE RED SAVE YOUR LIFE AND THE USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. People, who remembers the “million man march” that congregated in D.C……WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO GATHER UP BUSSES/CARS EVEN HORSES TO ARRIVE IN D.C. TO “DEMONSTRATE WHAT WE THE PEOPLE WANT”….The warmer months are coming so no one will freeze to death….meet in D.C. and do a “SIT IN” in Congress until our VOICES and WANTS are heard and acted upon!!!

  18. Please close the boarders spend the money on sending all the illegals back to there own country put laws in place that before applying for any kind of entry into the united states’ of america you must speak english fluently having education and/or skill and be able to prove truly proof that you’re running away from it a bad situation

  19. Biden follows everything President Trump has done.
    Since the creep Biden needs instructions on everything that President Trump did, I think Biden should get bathroom instructions from President Trump also.
    The man Biden is NUTS.
