How could a presidential candidate do this?
Joe Biden praised young ‘DACA’ illegal migrants as more American than Americans.
“We have to find a [amnesty] pathway for dreamers … These kids who come, and they end up doing well. They become American before a lot of Americans become Americans — No, I’m serious, they get in school, they do well, they contribute to the community, they contribute to the country,” he said.
The idea that we are changing the nature of our people by not allowing the notion of [Central American] people seeking asylum. Asylum! What’s that Statue of Liberty about? It’s about asylum! Asylum!
Biden also urged the closure of border detention centers — “close them down” — and the quick transfer of migrants into the asylum courts.
If they in fact don’t qualify for asylum, what I also do when I was U.S. Senator and then Vice President of the United States, we put together a bipartisan effort of $740 million to the three states where most [migrants] were coming from — Honduras , El Salvador, and Guatemala —and said “Here’s the deal: You go ahead and improve your police force, stop the corruption, we will pay for that … You go ahead and provide jobs for people, we will help you.”
