Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) thinks checks for illegal migrants is a terrible idea – and Republicans are going to hit the Biden administration hard on the issue.
“There is just astonishment that our border is still totally wide open. Honestly, it’s only going to get more wide open if we give these kinds of payments to illegal migrants,” Cotton Said.
“Isn’t it funny that they can’t find the illegals to deport them, but they can find them to give them half-million-dollar checks?” Cotton added.
“Where [are] the reparations for families who have lost a loved one due to illegal immigrant crime?” Cotton said. “Where are the reparations for families who have lost a loved one due to a drug overdose from drugs that came in from Mexico?
