In most countries, people who come in illegally face criminal penalties. In President Joe Biden’s America, people crossing the border illegally are given free stuff.
The White House admitted to handing out cell phones and other electronics to illegal immigrants, Fox News reported. The Biden administration insists they’re given to “track” and help them “check in.”
Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki about the plan Wednesday and she claimed the aim of the program was to monitor the whereabouts of illegal immigrants. “We need to take steps to ensure that we know where individuals are and we can track and we can check in with them,” she said.
“The Alternatives to Detention Program, which is what we utilize, has three unique forms of technology to monitor participants enrolled in the program,” Psaki continued. “Telephonic is one of them, which uses a participant’s voice to create a biometric voiceprint during the enrollment process,” she said.
“And when the participant has a check-in call, their voice is compared to the voiceprint,” Psaki added. “Smartlink, which is another option, enables participant monitoring via smartphone or tablet using facial matching technology to establish identity,” she said.
The press secretary also claimed the government utilizes its “Global Positioning System” that provides information on illegal immigrants’ whereabouts using an ankle bracelet as they await their hearings. Doocy further pressed her on whether it was a concern that these devices would be disposed of instead.
“Our concern is ensuring that individuals who irregularly migrate to the United States proceed through our process of, you know, of course, being monitored, but also participating in hearings to determine whether or not they will be able to stay,” Psaki sniped. She later contended that the “vast, vast majority of people are appearing in part, we have these monitors, monitoring systems in order to do that effectively.”
It’s ludicrous to give out free electronics to people in the U.S. illegally. No matter how the administration attempts to jhiteustify it, this program is still about handouts to people that have no business in the country in the first place.
