Will compensation be paid to illegals?

To The Eagle:
Wow! No letters to the Editor last week. Well, here’s one.
Am I reading this right? According to the Wall Street Journal, “the Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.”
Are they actually considering paying individuals and families up to $450,000 per person to those who crossed our southern border illegally?
First off, this has been going on for years, during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administration; not just the Trump administration. I even wrote an article a few years back about the Flores Consent Decree from 1997.
Speaking about the Flores Consent Decree, I recently went online to reread the article that I used as reference, The Truth about Separating Kids by Rich Lowry. I cannot find that particular article. It is there, but it’s not the same article that I copied and pasted onto my word processer back then and thank goodness I had the brains to do that and saved it. It left out a lot of detailed information and I believe it has been edited by big tech, big media and big government; so much for our freedom of choice, speech, information, religion, education, etc.
If the Biden administration is actually considering paying up to $450,000 per illegal family, all the more reasons they should be impeached and removed from office immediately. Also big tech and big media should be held accountable for not printing truths. Why is that not happening?
