If history is a guide, many Americans will not take kindly to Joe Biden’s desire to hand taxpayer funds to the countries that are allowing their people to illegally flood into the United States.
“The United States is considering a conditional cash transfer program to help address economic woes that lead migrants from certain Central American countries to trek north, as well as sending COVID-19 vaccines to those countries, a senior White House official told Reuters on Friday,” according to Reuters. [emphasis added]
“The potential program would be targeted at people in the Northern Triangle region of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told Reuters in an interview, without saying who exactly would receive cash.
“Roughly 168,000 people were picked up by U.S. Border Patrol agents at the U.S.-Mexico border in March, the highest monthly tally since March 2001 and part of steadily increasing arrivals in recent months. [emphasis added]
“‘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.
“She did not provide a detailed explanation of how a cash transfer program would work.”
