(AmericanProsperity.com) – The Biden administration seems to be enraging Republicans all across the country these days. Now, they have another reason to be angry: a new exclusive from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) claims President Joe Biden wants to pay hefty reparations to illegal immigrants separated from their families during Donald Trump’s time in office.

The hypothetical payouts offer up a shocking amount of money. In fact, the WSJ report claims the amount Biden has been pondering sits at around $450,000 per person — up to a total of $1 million per family.
Top Republicans immediately responded to the news in no uncertain terms. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy shared strong words on Twitter:
Pure insanity. The Biden administration is reportedly looking to pay $450,000 to illegal immigrants who knowingly broke the law.
It's a slap in the face to our law-abiding citizens who wake up, go to work, and pay their taxes.

Other leaders also blasted the president for the outlandish plan. Donald Trump Jr. called Democrats “insane,” while Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) accused Biden of igniting further chaos at a time when the border was already in crisis.
Even The Republican National Committee chimed in, appalled that Biden would even consider such high payments to immigrants in the face of empty shelves and skyrocketing crime.
Rising crime, surging prices, empty shelves, border in chaos. And Biden wants to PAY illegal immigrants $450,000 for breaking the law. https://t.co/eiYC9P5deY

If the Biden Administration truly wishes to give tax-payer money to illegal immigrants as some sort of apology, they had better prepare for the outcome: an army of Right-leaning Republicans and politicians who vehemently disagree.
