At CNN’s strange, empty Democratic debate on Sunday, former Vice President Joe Biden doubled-down on his promise to go easy on illegal immigrants if elected president in November. Biden, known for pairing himself to Obama in every way possible, is distancing himself from his former boss on this issue, declaring that his administration would not be deporting illegal aliens out of the United States. Indeed, he even rolled out a promise not to deport a single criminal illegal immigrant for the first 100 days of his presidency.
“In the first 100 days of my administration, no one will be deported at all,” Biden promised. “From that point on, the only deportations that will take place is convictions of felonies in the United States of America.”
Biden has made it clear that he does not consider a felony DUI conviction to be a real felony insofar as deportations are concerned.
At another point in the debate, Biden described how he would care for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States during the coronavirus epidemic.
“Anyone who shows up to be tested for coronavirus or gets coronavirus and is treated would be held harmless,” Biden answered. “Just like I have argued all along: Any woman who crosses the border or is here and being beaten by her husband, but she’s an undocumented, she cannot be deported because she reports. There are certain things you cannot deport an undocumented alien for — an undocumented person for.”
Heh, notice the way he caught himself after saying the BAD word.
“And that would be one of them,” Biden continued. “It’s in the interest of everyone. Those folks who are the xenophobic folks out there, it’s even in their interest that that woman come forward or that man come forward because it deals with keeping the spread from moving more rapidly.”
That’s all fine and well, but how does it happen that the Democratic debate even gets turned to such inane discussions in the first place? We’ve got a major testing crisis in the United States right now, with many symptomatic people being denied these tests for one reason or another. And for some reason, the CNN moderators think it’s time to prioritize the people who shouldn’t be in the damn country to begin with? It’s just amazing – and scary – to see the way their minds work.
But yeah, there you have it. Under Biden’s rule, illegal immigration will essentially be a thing of the past. Not because they’ve stopped crossing the borders, mind you, but because we’re going to just take an eraser to the “illegal” part and start pretending that everything is just fine.
What could go wrong?
