POLITICS: Biden DOJ says families separated at border don’t deserve compensation, despite his call for it


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

President Biden’s Justice Department has argued in court that families separated at the border during the Trump years are not entitled to compensation, a stark contrast to Biden’s own position over the past several months.

Court filings show Biden’s DOJ is arguing in federal court that the U.S. government is immune from legal challenges from illegal immigrants separated from their families at the border, according to Washington Post.

MORE THAN 47,000 MIGRANTS RELEASED INTO US BY BIDEN ADMIN IN 2021 FAILED TO REPORT TO ICE

“At issue in this case is whether adults who entered the country without authorization can challenge the federal government’s enforcement of federal immigration laws” under federal tort claims laws, the Justice Department argued in a January brief related to a Pennsylvania lawsuit. “They cannot.”

The argument comes a month after Biden’s DOJ called off settlement talks with migrant separated at the border, drawing outrage from the American Civil Liberties Union.

SUPREME COURT HEARS CASES ON PROLONGED DETENTION OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

TEXAS, USA - SEPTEMBER 19: Migrants are seen at the Rio Grande near the Del Rio-Acuna Port of Entry in Del Rio, Texas, on September 18, 2021. - The United States said on September 18 that it would ramp up deportation flights for thousands of migrants who flooded into the Texas border city of Del Rio, as authorities scramble to alleviate a burgeoning crisis for President Joe Biden's administration.

The DOJ pulled out of the talks, which previous reports had indicated could result in the DOJ giving illegal-immigrant families separated under the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy up to $450,000 each in damages.

“The moment they said they were going to back away from settlement negotiations, this is where they were headed,” Conchita Cruz, co-executive director of the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, told the Washington Post “If the government wants to actually win these cases, then they do have to argue that the families aren’t eligible. That’s what is so shocking.”

President Biden said in November that he believes the separated families “deserve some kind of compensation,” but also said he had “no idea” how much money they should receive.
