Former President Trump’s spokesperson, Liz Harrington, blasted the Biden administration for plans to dole out $450,000 for each illegal immigrant separated at the border.
Harrington told the Todd Starnes Show Friday President Biden is turning the U.S. into a “lawless nation.”
“They actually separated themselves by sending unaccompanied minors to the border to try to exploit our laws and our system,” Harrington said. “But now, to see this being rewarded for just violating our laws with half a million dollars per illegal alien, it’s a joke. It’s a disgrace. And the American people aren’t going to stand for it.”
In the last few months, immigrant families have sued the federal government, causing the conversation about compensation to begin. However, the amount of money received will depend on the circumstances of the family’s separation, according to The Hill.
National radio host Todd Starnes compared Biden compensating illegal immigrants with around $450,000 each with the average US soldier making under $25,000 a year.
Harrington addressed the hypocrisy of American citizens losing their jobs because they refuse the vaccination, while at the same time, immigrants getting compensation do not need a vaccine passport or any identification to enter the country and receive the taxpayer’s money.
“It is the average American, the soldier, the worker, and the Border Patrol agent, by the way, who might be getting forced out of a job even if they’ve already had the coronavirus because they won’t get a vaccine,” Harrington told Starnes.
“Yet here they are, letting already over a million illegally into our country. Forget a vaccine passport. There’s no passport. There’s no identification. There’s no nothing. There’s no check. They are making us a lawless nation.”
When asked about the plan to compensate families separated at the border Monday, Biden scratched his head and ignored the question.
LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW WITH LIZ HARRINGTON ON THE TODDCAST PODCAST:
Below is a rushed transcript from Liz Harrington’s interview on the Todd Starnes Show Friday:
STARNES: I want to go right now to a great American patriot on the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker Line in the Liberty University Studios. The one the only the great Liz Harrington. Hey, Liz, how’s it going today?
HARRINGTON: Hey, Todd, I’m good. How are you?
STARNES: I’m well, thank you for asking. Liz, big story yesterday dropping late. The Wall Street Journal reported the Biden administration looking at giving the families who they say were separated under the Trump administration $450,000 per person. A lot of people are very fired up about that today on the show.
HARRINGTON: It is so outrageous, and really you shouldn’t be surprised anymore or shocked. You shouldn’t be really anything that can shock you these days because of the just such brazen violations of the law and our sovereignty and just what they’re doing on all fronts to our great country. But I mean, this has got to be a joke, right? So, on this one, they can’t even have the audacity to do this, but unfortunately, it’s not. They do. This is how much disdain they have for the average American. This is how much disdain they have for the law-abiding citizen. At a time when the stores in the shelves are emptying, when it costs double, at least to fill up your gas tank. Inflation, the economy, you name it, is making things so much more difficult for law-abiding citizens. And this is such a slap in the face for real. What is a lie that was pushed throughout the Trump administration about these separations on the border? They actually separated themselves by sending unaccompanied minors to the border to try to exploit our laws and our system. But now, to see this being rewarded for just violating our laws with half a million dollars per illegal alien, it’s a joke. It’s a disgrace. And the American people aren’t going to stand for it.
STARNES: No, I don’t think they are Liz, and I’m glad to hear people making the comparisons. You know, when you see that the average American soldier is making, you know, under $25,000 a year. And here you are going to give people the Biden administration wanting to give people that are illegals who have violated American sovereignty. All this money, it’s offensive to people. And I’m with you. I think people are truly going to be enraged and are going to push back on this.
HARRINGTON: It’s so outrageous again. You just can’t even believe they have the audacity. I mean, this is the disdain they have for their own country that that is really what it comes down to. And you know why they think they can get away with it. They think they can get away with it because they think they’re not accountable to the voters because the voters didn’t actually put them there. And that’s the big problem. And that’s why you’re seeing just this overreach as we’ve never seen before because they’re not worried about being accountable to the people that act that they’re supposed to be working for. It is the average American. It is the soldier. It is the worker. It is the Border Patrol agent, by the way, who might be getting forced out of a job even if they’ve already had the coronavirus because they won’t get a vaccine. And yet here they are, letting hundreds of thousands, already over a million illegally into our country. Forget a vaccine passport. There’s no passport. There’s no identification. There’s no nothing. There’s no check. They are making us a lawless nation. And these double standards, the treating of evil as good and good as evil. It is an upside-down world. And that’s what is making people so upset because they follow the rules. They work hard. They just want a shot at providing for their family. And then this is how this government treats them. It’s unacceptable. And again, people are so outraged. They’re not going to stand for this.
STARNES: Liz Harrington on the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker Line in our Liberty University Studios. Liz, you have been very busy on Twitter today, and of course, the president weighs in a lot of these big stories. He warned everybody about inflation. And now there’s a report out. Not only is this going to be the most expensive Thanksgiving dinner in recent memory, but now even McDonald’s is having to raise its prices just to make ends meet.
HARRINGTON: You know, everyone feels it. They see it. I mean, any time you go to fill up your car, anytime you go to the grocery, you’re not able to get things readily available like you used to. They are trying to turn us into a third-world country. I mean, there’s no other way to look at it. Look at our elections. Look at our border. Look at the store shelves. This is what happens in a Third World country. And that’s why we can’t stand for it, that we lose our country if we don’t have law and order. And that’s what President Trump was warning about. That’s what President Trump restored when he was in the White House. He did all these amazing things that brought the best economy we’ve seen in generations brought higher wages for the first time in decades, the lowest gas prices, energy independence, and now with these holidays coming up, you see again and again all of these decisions being made by designed to hurt us. There’s no reason why suddenly, after all these years of politicians promising we’d be energy independent. President Trump was the one who actually delivered it. There’s no there is no difference between January 19th and January 20th. It’s the decisions that were made to cancel the keystone but give Putin his pipeline to stop any drilling on our great and vast reserves. We have more than enough, and now we’re begging. OK, then that is not, that doesn’t make any sense, but it’s purposeful. They do not want us to be energy independent. They want to punish the average American. They want to punish the average American entrepreneur. And they don’t want you to be successful in this country. They want America to be on the bad side of the world. They want us to be in decline. And that’s what they’re doing—all these decisions. When you look at Afghanistan, we look at the border, when you look at our energy, when you look at inflation, and people are really suffering right now in this economy. Well, sadly, I think it’s only going to get worse.
STARNES: Liz, we’re going to have to leave it there. Always good to hear from you. I hope you have a great rest of your weekend.
HARRINGTON: You too, Todd. Thanks for having me. All right.
STARNES: Liz Harrington, everybody. A spokesperson for President Trump on the Patriot Mobile Newsmaker Line. I am heading down to Mar a Lago on Sunday. We will have a fill-in host on the show Monday. I believe our good friend, Tim Van Horn, is going to be sitting in for me as I meet with the president on Monday afternoon, catching the late flight back to Memphis, and I’ll be back with you on Tuesday.
