Joe Biden: Illegal Aliens ‘Are Already Americans’
Vice President Joe Biden says illegal aliensÂ ”are already Americans,” whether they’re here legally or not.
Biden made this disgraceful insult to both citizens and legal immigrants in a speech to Pennsylvania political leaders gathered in New York on Saturday.
Biden says Congress has a moral and economic imperative to offer a pathway to citizenship for “11 million immigrants” living in the country illegally.
It was the second time in a week that Biden addressed immigration publicly. In a recent online chat, he called on the House to vote on a Senate package that includes a pathway to citizenship.
Biden says that majorities of Americans in both parties support such a pathway.
But polls show precisely the opposite. A recent poll of likely voters showed that Americans overwhelmingly oppose a path to citizenship for illegal aliens before the borders are secured.
Just 19% of voters believe that those who are not in this country illegally should be granted legal status right away. Sixty-four percent (64%) say legalization should come only after the border is secured. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
Slow Joe Biden is actually getting more cognitively challenged as he ages. To call Joe an unguided missile is to insult unguided missiles. Illegal aliens are not American citizens, they are people living in America without legal standing. I can buy the idea that illegals who work to secure legal standing are “Americans” after a fashion, and when they complete the requirements for American citizenship they will then be real Americans. There are good reasons why the US has a serious set of requirements for citizenship, since those who do not understand our history and the uniqueness of our nation, which by the way includes many who are citizens by virtue of their birth, cannot understand how to exercise their voting rights, among other responsibilities of citizens.
Hence, the Progressives now running the US government and seeking to secure their power in the future, like Mr. Biden, see an advantage in granting US citizenship to people who do not understand America’s culture or basic American principles, and who often will be isolated from American values because they do not speak English. This clear strategy being pursued by Our Dear Leader and his minions, is a cynical attempt to prey on illegal aliens by refusing to support their assimilation into American society and culture. This is not the first time such a strategy has been deployed in the US, as Boss Tweed and the Tammany Hall Gang used the same basic approach by isolating Irish, Italian Jewish and Eastern European immigrants and controlling their votes in the 19th century. That story is portrayed eloquently in GANGS OF NEW YORK, an outstanding movie of recent years.
So like many of their other duplicitous actions and slogans, Biden and Obama care nothing about the status of today’s illegal alien population. Their plan is to secure the illegals’ ability to vote, combine them with growing number of American citizens who are now dependent on the Federal government and create a permanent government-dependent underclass that will keep the Progressives in power for the next two generations. Is that leadership? No, it is a pure power play that will destroy the greatest nation in human history in order to secure the narrow political goals of ethically bankrupt Progressive politicians. Our Founders, who risked their families’ lives and fortunes to give birth to American exceptionalism, would already be in active revolt!!! CDE
