Vice President Joe Biden says illegal aliens “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.
Perhaps Biden was unaware of this fact since he had not yet sobered up from his Christmas party groping incident…
