The Biden Administration was criticized on Twitter for intending to give illegal immigrants mobile phones after entering the country and awaiting immigration court proceedings.
On April 6, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that illegal immigrants were given “electronic devices,” including cellphones, so the administration could “track” them and “settle.” record” with them.
Conservatives on Twitter were quick to criticize the program, saying the administration should “secure the border” rather than welcome people who immigrate illegally to the United States.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., tweeted, “Here’s an idea: Instead of giving free cell phones to illegal immigrants, why isn’t the Biden administration spending this money securing the border?”
Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-Wis., tweeted that giving these free cellphones to illegal immigrants is just one way the Biden administration is killing the “American Dream.”
He wrote: “American taxpayer dollars fund Biden’s massive illegal immigration. First it’s debit cards and cell phones. Next it’s hotels, air travel, education and health care. It never ends, and it destroys the American dream for those legally waiting their turn.”

Conservative radio host Tara Servatius tweeted that Psaki’s confession was “HORRIBLE”. She added: “Why do this? So they can stay in touch with their future constituents, build a relationship and reunite with them after the amnesty.”
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., also lambasted the new policy, tweeting, “Open Borders Biden is back. First it was private accommodations for illegals. Now it’s cell phones.”
Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., tweeted, “Biden administration gives illegal immigrants free cellphones, but leaves real American citizens behind in Afghanistan.”
