Senate Republicans want to stop the Biden administration from paying money to families who were separated at the border according to American Military News. They introduced a change to the defense bill to block this. They think giving money to these families will encourage more people to come to the U.S. illegally. President Biden said these payments wouldn’t happen. But later the White House said they might settle with the families as part of lawsuits. They’ve promised to help families separated under the old policy. But Republicans don’t like this idea and say it’s part of the problem at the border.
