(Tea Party PAC) – Former Vice President Joe Biden has just cemented himself as perhaps the greatest and most melodramatic panderer in all of political history. Given the fact this man served under the leadership of former President Barack Obama, that’s a really high mark to reach.
Biden, desperate to bury Sen. Bernie Sanders and cinch the Democratic Party presidential nomination, has resorted to making absurd promises to the left’s favorite demographic — illegal aliens — promising there will be no deportations during the first 100 days of his administration should he get the nomination and defeat President Trump.
Yes, that’s right, folks. It’s totally cool with Biden if individuals cross the border illegally, showing complete and total disregard for our laws as a sovereign nation, suck up our economic resources, and put your family in danger.
The doubling down on this particular policy happened during the Sunday night debate between Sanders and Biden that aired on CNN.
Here’s more from Breitbart News:
During CNN’s Democrat debate Sunday night, Biden recommitted to not deporting any illegal aliens, no matter their criminal history, in his first 100 days — and afterward allowing no deportations unless they are first prosecuted and convicted of felonies.
“In the first 100 days of my administration, no one, no one will be deported at all,” Biden said. “From that point on, the only deportations that will take place is convictions of felonies in the United States of America.”
Biden — who, along with Obama, oversaw thousands of deportations and detention of border crossers between 2008 to 2016 — has attempted to angle his national immigration plan to appease the open borders lobby that has blasted him for failing to commit, like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), to ending all deportations of illegal aliens, regardless of criminal history.
Breitbart has reported on recently conducted research that deporting the 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens that currently reside in America would end up saving taxpayers billions of dollars compared to the obscene amount of money it would cost to allow illegals to stay here.
Just how much money would be saved through deportation? How about $622 billion over the course of an illegal individual’s lifetime. So deporting these folks is less costly than keeping them here, an inconvenient fact that someone like Biden and his buddies on the left simply do not want to hear or acknowledge. Why? Because then they cannot reasonably insist on illegals remaining here in the United States. That would in turn destroy their best resource for padding voter rolls come election time.
The left, whether they are willing to admit it or not, have relied on turning illegal aliens into slaves of the Democratic Party, luring them in with the false promise of free stuff, as a means for winning elections and holding on to power for a long, long time. There’s no reason to believe that this strategy will change any time soon.
Biden just happened to be a little more out in the open with things than his predecessors.
