Why the Biden administration would pay as much as $450,000 to separated immigrant families

Aaron Blake for the Washington Post offers the lowdown on a possible attempt to redress the damage done by the Trump administration's family separation policy.  As Blake reports:

"The Wall Street Journal broke the news that the Biden administration is looking to settle with the immigrant families who were separated from their children during the Trump administration’s `Zero Tolerance' policy, which it later abandoned and a judge halted, ordering the reunification of the families. As The Washington Post and others confirmed, the administration is reportedly considering paying as much as $450,000 per person."
