Let's just give everyone free money!
Even people in other countries ... why not!
It's pay to stay away.
The Biden administration is considering sending cash payments to Central Americans in a bid to prevent them from making the trek north as the US grapples with the worst immigration crisis seen in 20 years, Reuters reported Friday.
The potential cash transfer program would be targeted at residents of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which account for the overwhelming majority of migrants illegally crossing the border, Roberta Jacobson, the White House's southern border coordinator, told the outlet.
This is really astounding stuff.
They're actually considering paying other nations American taxpayer dollars to try and get their people to stop migrating here en masse.
Instead of, I dunno, a reinforced border with strongly enforced migration laws?
Our betters in Washington really think that we can just keep printing helicopter money forever with no consequences whatsoever.
Or they are fully aware of the consequences -- and desire them.
I'm not sure which is worse.
