Biden Snaps at Fox News Reporter: Families Separated At The Border By Trump “Deserve Compensation”

By Tim Hains | Real Clear Politics

President Biden clarified a confusing back-and-forth from Thursday’s press briefing that seemed to contradict what the president said earlier this week denying a Wall Street Journal report that the Department of Justice plans to pay “damages” to illegal immigrant families who were separated at the border under the Trump administration.

Biden told FNC’s David Spunt on Saturday that when he said the WSJ’s report was “garbage” he was referring to the figure of $450,000.

“Let’s get it straight. You said everybody coming across the border gets $450,000. The number I was referring to.”
