Daines – $450K for Illegals but $100K for Soldiers Families?

Senator Steve Daines called in to the KGVO Montana Morning News show on Thursday morning and slammed the Biden Administration’s priorities in spending in the Defense Authorization Act when it comes to illegal immigrants as opposed to slain U.S. armed services personnel.

“I along with virtually every Montanan was shocked to hear that the Biden Administration is considering paying $450,000 to each illegal immigrant who has claims now that the ACLU is filing a lawsuit because of the way they were treated,” said Senator Daines. In fact, some families illegally coming into our country could be eligible to receive up to $1 million.”

Daines then compared that figure with what a U.S. armed services family would receive after a soldier was killed in action.

“If a service member is killed in action, the payment to the family is $100,000,” he said. “To think that Biden wants to give one illegal immigrant $450,000 ought to make every one of us incredibly upset,” he said. “So I have put an amendment in place here that I hope to get passed as part of this Defense Authorization Act that would stop that, and that would not allow taxpayer dollars to go to these illegal immigrants.”
