[Ed. – We may as well elect the genius who complained that America treats illegal aliens as ‘second class citizens.]
Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden previously said all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the United States are “already American citizens.”
In a 2014 speech to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. then-Vice President Biden declared that all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens in the U.S. are one and the same to American citizens.
You know, the 11 million people living in the shadows, I believe they’re already American citizens. Teddy Roosevelt said it better, he said Americanism is not a question of birthplace or creed or a line of dissent. It’s a question of principles, idealism, and character. [Emphasis added]
These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to be able to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans. [Emphasis added]
Biden’s citation of Roosevelt’s “True Americanism” 1894 essay failed to mention that the former president was fiercely opposed to a multicultural American culture and politics, arguing that assimilation in immigration is vital to preserving national identity.
