Vice President Joe Biden hardly ever says anything we actually need to listen to, but this Cinco de Mayo he showed us the truth of what Democrats believe about immigration.
The honest truth as delivered by VP Biden is that the Democrats believe that we should have no system of immigration in America. In the mind of the Democrat everyone is an American… as long as they’ll pay taxes and buy into the welfare state. The Democrats hate immigration law – which begs the question… do they actually just hate law?
Here is what Biden had to say about illegal immigration in America.
“We don’t have to redouble our efforts. We have to redouble our demand. We have to redouble our demand that the House of Representatives takes up legislation that’s going to match the strong bill that came out of the United States Senate,” the VP said, referring to the upper chamber’s Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, which passed in the Senate with bipartisan support in June 2013.
It’s time for John – he’s a good man, John Boehner – to stand up. And other Republicans to stand up. Not for us to stand. We’ve already stood up. We’ve stood up, we’ve been counted. But it’s time for him to stand up, stand up and not let the minority – I think it’s a minority – of the Republican party in the House keep us from moving to a vote to change the circumstances for millions and millions of lives.
I know I was criticized for saying, a couple months ago in Florida, that these 11 million folks in the shadows are already Americans. And I got pretty roundly criticized for that. But you know, they are Americans. They may not be citizens, but they are Americans.
The definition of Teddy Roosevelt, who said, ‘Americanism is not a question of birthplace or creed, or line of descent, it’s a question of principles, idealism and character.’ And I would argue that those 11 million folks who are here, breaking their neck, working hard, they are Americans.”
Democrats may pretend to love our nation, our values, our tradition, our history and our Constitution. But it’s simply not true.
They abhor our country.
They work tirelessly to undermine our foundation, and folks, they’ve done a good job of it.
If (or when) they give amnesty to these 11 million illegals, it will mark the single most important event in the weakening of our Republic. I wish I could say that amnesty is unlikely, but you know as well as I do that the weak-kneed, coward caucus of the Republican Party is working hard to see amnesty passed. We can stand and fight against the Democrats. We can stand and fight against the RINO’s. But to have to fight both groups off at the same time… will prove to be a difficult task.
It may look bleak, but we must try. Our children’s future depends on it.
