House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Joe Biden’s administration in wake of reports that the White House is considering making cash payments to Central American countries in hopes of stemming migration to the United States.

The potential cash transfer program would target people in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, White House southern border coordinator Roberta Jacobson told Reuters without saying who exactly would receive cash.

“We’re looking at all of the productive options to address both the economic reasons people may be migrating, as well as the protection and security reasons,” Jacobson is quoted as telling Reuters.

The consideration from the White House comes as nearly 170,000 were reportedly apprehended by U.S. Border Control agents in March at the U.S./ Mexico border, as part of an surge that hasn’t been seen in decades.

In response to the news, Rep. McCarthy issued a reaction on Twitter.

“President Biden wants to try and buy our way out of his border crisis with taxpayer money,” McCarthy wrote. “The Administration is spending $60 million a week, and now wants to launch a cash transfer program in Central America.”

“This insults millions of Americans who are out of work in our country,” he declared. See Below
