Joe Biden: DACA Illegals ‘Become American Before a Lot of Americans’

Joe Biden praised young ‘DACA’ illegal migrants as more American than Americans during a Thursday campaign event in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

“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.

Biden’s praise for illegals was tied up with his view of America as a land of working immigrants — rather than of Americans and their children — and with his sympathy for migrants. For example, he described the Statue of Liberty as an invite to migrants from around the world, saying:

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!

In fact, the Statue was created to champion Americans’ culture of liberty, not to convert Americans’ homeland into a refuge.

Biden also urged the closure of border detention centers — “close them down” — and the quick transfer of migrants into the asylum courts. But he dodged the vital question of whether the U.S. government would repatriate migrants who lose their courtroom pleas for asylum by suggesting he would provide aid to Central American countries if they send more migrants:

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.”
