Usa, behind the front of Biden for the compensation to migrant families separated by Trump
And for the umpteenth time the social plans of Joe Biden they had to contend with the cold numbers of the Republican opposition in Congress. The last case concerns the compensation for migrant families separated from their children by Donald Trump’s harsh migration policy. The Democratic Administration and the president himself during the election campaign had promised not only to put an end to this evident injustice but also to commit themselves to compensate the hundreds of families affected. “If you lost one of your children crossing the border due to the outrageous behavior of the previous Administration, legally or illegally, you deserve compensation. No matter the circumstance “the President had said. It seemed that the promises would finally be kept and instead the policy, the Congress asked for a clear change of course.

In fact the Department of Justice for weeks he had had the opportunity to compensate each of the victims with a maximum of $ 450,000 quite quickly and independently. But now this option, according to the family lawyers, has disappeared. The Government will individually discuss the cases before the courts with different economic results, much longer times and many bureaucratic quibbles. The cause of this turnaround arose from the opposition of 11 Republicans who, in Congress, asked for the cancellation of the measure, which was judged “ridiculous” especially for the economic entity.

Lee Gelernt, attorney of the American Association for Civil Liberties (ACLU), who had taken part in the negotiation, considered the stop to be absolutely negative “History will judge the Biden administration very badly for this decision not to defend all young children separated from their families. ”And not only history will be critical of the new democratic administration. The President who has one of the lowest popularity ratings never obtained by a White House number one (40%) could have negative repercussions especially in the upcoming midterm elections in 2022. This turnaround adds to the criticality of a migratory trend which, in the year, grew by 5%, compared to to the previous 12 months. There were more than 173,000 arrests in November, an all-time high. All this confirms how, at the moment, the measures Biden promised for migrants have not yet been implemented and this is a further problem for a President in great difficulty at home.
