Did you hear the one about the Biden administration’s plan to pay illegal aliens $450,000?... And yet as we shall see, the plan was true, and it did come from his administration....

... on October 28, The Wall Street Journal had the scoop on the Biden administration’s plan for the half-million-dollar deal.... As the article detailed, the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are confronted with some 940 formal legal claims for damages from individuals and families—all of them foreign nationals—that were separated at the border that they tried to cross....

Other Republicans and conservatives argued that such a payment program would only incentivize more people from around the world to come here. They have also pointed out that $450,000 is more money than is paid to the families of those Americans who die in military service. In other words, Americans Last....

Still more establishment support for the payments came from The Washington Post, which explained the Bidenites’ thinking this way: “The simple answer is that the administration views it as being the right thing to do, given the cruelty and inhumanity of the policy.” In that sentence we see a nice big fat planted assumption, namely that the Trump policy was an instance of “cruelty and inhumanity.”... So in this progressive reckoning, of course victims should get nearly half a million dollars....

And that’s a keeper point: Biden can dismiss the story, and yet the looming payments are part of a legal process, and so even the president might not be able to stop them from being paid out–at least not without extraordinary effort, wrangling his own people. And in the White House, is Biden known for extraordinary effort?...

Indeed, if the ACLU goes to legal war with the Biden administration, that will put many Biden appointees, as well as other Democrats, in a quandary. Why? Because most Democrats revere the ACLU....

What were they thinking? We can identify five reasons:

First, it’s what the Biden people really believe about immigration–they want more of it, the law be damned....

Second, ... In the liberal Democratic imagination, where lawyers and judges loom so large, the fond idea is that a giant court settlement—the more billions, the better—will permanently stamp the Trump administration as a pariah outlaw...

Third, the administration hopes to build the argument that enforcement of immigration law, as the Trump administration practiced it, is simply too expensive... (Unmentioned by the Bidenites, of course, is that the federal government enjoys sovereign immunity...)

Fourth, the Biden people still believe in the theory of the Coalition of the Ascendant.... despite abundant evidence that immigrants are not woke...

Fifth, and perhaps most profoundly, the Biden folks seem to have embraced an updated version of the Cloward-Piven Strategy. That strategy can be summed up in four Leninist words: The worse the better....

But wait! There’s even more evidence that the administration was doing all this on purpose, as a matter of conscious policy: As Breitbart News’ John Binder has pointed out, the multi-trillion-dollar Build Back Better plan, currently being considered by Congress, includes $80 billion in benefits to illegal aliens....
