During the press conference we told you about on Wednesday, President Joe Biden snapped at Peter Doocy and called a the story that his administration was preparing to pay illegal immigrant families who were separated at the border during the Trump years $450,000 each “garbage” pushed by Fox News:

“President Biden may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department as it carefully deliberated and considered the crimes committed against thousands of families separated from their children as an intentional governmental policy,” said Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, which is involved in the litigation. “But if he follows through on what he said, the president is abandoning a core campaign promise to do justice for the thousands of separated families.”
