Rep. Boebert Introduces Legislation to Ban Federal Settlement Payments to Illegal Migrants

Rep. Lauren Boebert, the fiery House GOP freshman from Colorado, is introducing legislation to prohibit the federal government from making settlement payments to illegal immigrants who have sued because their families were separated at the border.

For contrast, the highest-paid Border Patrol agents make less than half that in yearly salary after 20 years of service.”
