I want us to give them their children back !!!!!! AND anyone involved in the trafficking of those children to suffer in prison.

A bureaucratic mistake is not an excuse when a human life is at stake.

It is entirely beside the point. There should be no limitation on the government’s efforts to reunite the families regardless of any payments.

The money is fine with me. I’m sure there will be a stampede of detectives, law firms, supposed ‘ex-special forces’ types that will swarm the families with contracts and promises of finding their children. A handful might even be legit.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Seriously, kidnapping charges need to be files for the those in charge, and those willing co-conspiriators!

Nov. 6th:

President Joe Biden said Saturday that the families of children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border during the Trump administration should be compensated, as his Department of Justice is in settlement talks with affected families.

Raising his voice, Biden said that regardless of the circumstances, people who had their children taken from them under the Trump administration’s family separation policy, meant to deter families from crossing into the U.S. illegally, should be remunerated.

“If, in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you coming across the border, whether it was legally or illegally, and you lost your child — You lost your child. It’s gone — you deserve some kind of compensation, no matter what the circumstance,” Biden said. “What that will be I have no idea. I have no idea.”


Where'd the $450,000 to "illegal immigrants" come from?

They should each be given one of Trump's properties - hotel, golf course, high-rise, etc.

And what of the much ballyhooed reparations to Black American families?

Would you rather the government spend $1 million per missing child trying to reunite them, or $450k as a payment after the fact for putting their lost children into human trafficking?

I can't find the first post, but three years ago I was implying Cheeto's (thank you Jeff Sessions) Southern Border policies were specifically designed to funnel the kids into human trafficking.

CNN from last month:

Quote

President Joe Biden was asked by a Fox News reporter on Wednesday about a Wall Street Journal article last week that had reported "the Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation."

The reporter asked Biden if such payments -- which the Journal said "could amount to close to $1 million a family" -- could serve as an incentive for additional undocumented people to try to enter the US. Biden responded, "If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah. But it's not true."

When the reporter asked Biden directly if "this is a garbage report," Biden replied, "Yeah." Then, offering the first inkling of what specifically he was denying, Biden disputed the "$450,000" figure the Wall Street Journal used.

Biden asked, "Four hundred and fifty thousand dollars per person. Is that what you're saying?" When the reporter confirmed, Biden said, "That's not gonna happen."

Is that clear enough?

(PS - it was clear to Lindsey Graham, but apparently not denied quickly enough):

Quote
Tweet by Lindsey Graham
President Biden now claims that efforts to give illegal immigrants a $450,000 per person settlement for border separation is “garbage.”

Why did it take so long for the White House to say that?

Ummm…maybe because it’s not Biden’s responsibility to publicly respond to each outrageous wingnut meme-du-jour?

PS - Graham is the Lucy Van Pelt of politics:

FWIW, I know some folks who worked with the separated kids earlier this year, in the camps. The stories they tell would break your heart.

I saw a video of a woman whose boy would have nothing to do with her after they had been separated too long. She was expecting a sweet reunion and he wouldn’t look at her or touch her. It was one of the saddest things I have ever seen.

I wish Biden or Jen would ask that before any further comment, and make the 'reporter' squirm a little.

Or a lot.

Either you made that garbage up or somebody is feeding you garbage, which is it?


Out of curiosity, those of you speaking to child trafficking, do you have any demonstrable evidence or links to same regarding this particular situation?

I believe everyone responsible for the decision to separate children from their parents should be punished.

IF the children were subsequently 'disappeared' because of trafficking, then obviously penalties should be severe.

No, send that money to well deserving billionaires, giant corporations, insurance companies and banks that have been allowed to become "too big to fall".
Without them, there'd be no civilization.

The world is surely a crazy place, but America is quickly drifting to the top.

Stealing your thread, samintx, sorry.
But time to split America in half (at least) and property swap thumpers and 21st century dwellers.

It’s a common trick practice of those arguing these things to assume that Federal income taxes are the only tax. They’re not - not even close - and most of the other taxes (payroll, sales, excise, etc) are regressive. When you look at total taxes paid as a percent of income, the net result is just barely progressive:



…and of course, some people who claim to be billionaires pay very little in taxes. wink smiley

When it comes to income tax, the bottom 40% pay nothing. Many even are tax positive if they have kids. Sales tax everyone pays.

What’s the citation for your “40%” claim? I’m not seeing it in your link.

You’re just resurrecting and parroting false claims from 13 years ago!

Again, despite constant attempts to cloud the issue, federal income taxes =/= “taxes” or all taxes people pay - not even close. And most of the sizable remainder is regressive. The progressivity of the federal income tax is the major thing that evens it out a bit.
