In 2006, former Vice President Joe Biden told a South Carolina rotary club audience that he proudly voted for the Secure Fence Act â€“ authorizing the construction of 700 miles of fencing at the southern US border.Â
He also called for a crackdown on companies which hire â€œillegals,â€ saying: â€œI voted for a fence, I voted, unlike most Democrats â€” and some of you wonâ€™t like itÂ â€” I voted for 700 miles of fence,â€ adding â€œBut, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high, unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and â€” and you will not like this, and â€”Â punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals. Unless you do those two things, allÂ the rest is window dressing.â€
So, 2006 Biden and President Trump agree on immigration policy based on this video unearthed byÂ CNNâ€˜s KFile.
â€œNow, I know Iâ€™m not supposed to say it that bluntly, but theyâ€™re the facts, theyâ€™re the facts,â€ said Biden. â€œAnd so everything else we do is in between here. Everything else we do is at the margins.Â And the reason why I add that parenthetically, why I believe the fence is needed, does not have anything to do with immigration as much as drugs.Â And let me tell you something, folks, people are driving across that border with tons, tons, hear me, tons of everything fromÂ byproducts for methamphetamine to cocaine to heroin and itâ€™s all coming up through corrupt Mexico.â€
Former president Obama has been pictured flashing the â€œwhite supremacistâ€ OK hand gesture that a Cubâ€™s fan was banned for flashing recently. Alex exposes how this overreaction to symbols is being used by the globalists to control the population.
Biden 2020 campaign spokesman Andrew Bates defended the remarks to CNN, noting that Biden said the barrier along the border will not solve the problem of illegal immigration â€“ and called President Trumpâ€™s approach to the problem â€œrepugnantâ€ and â€œcontrary to our values as a nation.â€
â€œVice President Biden believes we have to stop trying to scare people and instead have an immigration discussion based on facts,â€ said Bates. â€œHe believes that we can secure our borders without abandoning our values, and that we should do that by addressing the root causes of immigration abroad and working toward comprehensive immigration reform at home, including a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and smart border security.â€
AsÂ The Hillâ€˜s Jonathan Easley notes, Biden has knocked Trumpâ€™s immigration policies, as well as the pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe ArpaioÂ â€“ a staunch opponent of illegal immigration who was found guilty by the DOJ of racially profiling Latinos.
Biden has been a fierce critic of Trumpâ€™s immigration policies.
In a speech to theÂ United Latin American Citizens last year, Biden bashed the administration for its zero-tolerance policy that separated children from their parents at the border.
â€œGrotesque lies about immigrants and policies that rip babies from their mothersâ€™ armsÂ carry echoes of the darkest moments in our history,â€ Biden said. â€œNot only are they a national shame, they tarnish the very idea of America and diminish our standing in the world.â€
He also lashed out at the president for pardoning former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whoÂ had been found guilty in a Justice Department investigation of racially profiling Latinos.
â€œIt doesnâ€™t just reveal itself in the betrayal of the â€˜Dreamers,â€™Â or the pardoning of a sheriff who has terrorized this community,â€ BidenÂ said. â€œItâ€™s also in the underfunding of our schools, in attacks on labor and the ability of workers to bargain for their worth, and in the neglect of Puerto Ricans after Hurricane Maria, where many children â€” American children â€” have lost a year of school due to the devastation.â€ â€“The Hill
Despite Bidenâ€™s gaffes and openly groping women and children, heâ€™s still the Democratic frontrunner for 2020 according to a recent poll byÂ Monmouth UniversityÂ â€“ which has him in a double-digit lead over Bernie Sanders at 36% vs. 18% of likely Democratic primary voters.
Looks to me like itâ€™s going to be SleepyCreepy Joe over Crazy Bernie. Everyone else is fading fast!
