Put a fork in Joe Biden. He’s done.
During a town hall meeting on Nov. 21 in South Carolina, a hapless Biden urged an attendee to “vote for Trump” when confronted about the Obama administration’s mass deportations of illegal immigrants.
Carlos Rojas — an advocate of illegal immigration — demanded that Biden stop all deportations if elected president. Surprisingly, a defiant Joe said no.
The open-borders activist then pointed out that Barack Obama deported more than 3 million illegal aliens — more than President Trump, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton.
“In 2008, I was a volunteer for Obama because I believed in his promises to the immigrant community,” Rojas said in a Twitter video captured by CNN’s Eric Bradner. “Over those eight years, there were three million people who were deported and separated from their families.”
An annoyed Biden replied: “You should vote for Trump. You should vote for Trump.” Then Biden turned his back on Carlos Rojas and walked away.
Rojas said he’s not going to vote for Trump, but wanted Biden to promise that he would not deport any more illegal aliens– even if they commit crimes.
“I want to make sure that immigrant families are not afraid,” Rojas said. “You have the power as a candidate to actually commit to stopping all deportations from Day One from executive action. We want to hear you say that.”
Biden then hearkened back to the longstanding position that both Republicans and many Democrats held for decades — before Donald Trump took office.
Biden said he will deport illegal immigrants who commit felonies. That’s the law that lawmakers — both Democrats and Republican — approved decades ago.
“I will not stop all deportations. If you commit a crime, that’s a felony,” Biden said.
At that point, a group of protesters began chanting and holding up signs that read: “Not 1 More Deportation!”
They again pressured Joe Biden to promise that he will not deport any more illegal aliens if elected president.
To his credit, Biden stood his ground, saying: “If someone [illegal alien] commits [a felony], they should be deported.”
However, Biden pandered to the open-borders advocates by promising that “there will be no family separations under my presidency.”
One protester yelled: “That’s a lie!”
As usual, leftist ingrates are like a ruler: If you give them an inch, they’ll demand a mile. The Left wants total submission and capitulation — not measured, thoughtful responses to their constant whining.
Barack Obama has slammed President Trump as “cruel” for rolling back his DACA executive order, but failed to mention that he deported over 3 million illegal aliens during his tenure — more than any president in U.S. history.
Where was the leftist media outrage then?
Thanks to the left’s demonization of immigration officers (who are merely enforcing rules that Democrats and Republicans signed into law decades ago), ICE and Border-Patrol agents are being punched and kicked at border crossings.
