Joe Biden: The United States Can "Afford" to Absorb Another 2 Million Destitute Immigrants and Refugees, and It's "Bizarre" That We're Not Already Doing So

He also says we must "unite" -- as a single people, a single citizenship, I guess -- with the world's immigrants and refugees.

Kerry Picket at the Washington Examiner:



Joe Biden called for the United States to increase the number of immigrants and refugees from its current acceptance rate.

During a campaign stop hosted by the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC Thursday night, the former vice president pointed to nations with present conflicts that the U.S. should be accepting refugees from.

"We should change the priorities in terms of whether or not who is able to get in line. We should be uniting family. We should be uniting them. We should also be looking at the whole idea of what's going on in terms of Diaspora that's occurring on across the world," Biden proposed, noting the Trump White House refugee admission policy difference since he left the White House.


"Four million people are fleeing Venezuela. What do we do? We're not allowing temporary status at all like we did in Haiti," he said.

PS, the "temporary" refugees from Haiti have been here for almost ten years.

There is no such thing as "temporary" in the federal government, least of all temporary protected status for immigrants and refugees.

Anyone think the DACA card holders are merely here on a "temporary" basis?

The Trump administration has already cut refugee admissions by one third this year to 30,000.

Let me put it another way. We could afford to take in a heartbeat another two million. The idea that a country of 330 million cannot afford people, who are in desperate need and who are justifiably weak, and fleeing depression is absolutely bizarre," Biden said.

So, Open Borders then, yeah?
