‘We’ll Do That Too, Kid’: Biden Promises Immigration Heckler That Admin Will Stop Deportations

avatar

Vice President Joe Biden promised during a speech that the Obama administration would stop all deportations of illegal immigrants, telling a heckling immigration activist that “we’ll do that too, kid.”

The vice president spoke Saturday at the graduation ceremony for Miami Dade College in Florida. CNN rebroadcast a portion of his commencement speech Monday morning, in which Biden is briefly heckled by an illegal immigration activist.

“The immigrant community represents something special we never talk about,” the vice president asserted, before being interrupted by an unidentified student who yelled, “Stop deportation!”

“We’ll do that too, kid, but let me get finished [sic] my speech,” an nonplussed Biden replied, to cheers from the crowd.

Prior to the 2012 presidential election, the Obama administration routinely bragged about the record number of illegal immigrants deported during their tenure. Though later proven to be exaggerated, that number reportedly comes to about 2 million since President Obama took office — angering many Hispanics and threatening Democratic prospects in the 2014 midterms.

CNN host John King noted that many analysts “do expect the administration to dial back on deportations.”

“Yes, we do,” Politico’s Maggie Haberman agreed. “And the president is very well aware that this is massively problematic. It’s problematic for his own legacy, it’s problematic for his party.”

“It has caught, I think, a lot of Democrats by surprise, the extent of the anger,” she added, “because when we came out of the 2012 presidential campaign, there was a sense that the Republican nominee had not done what he could. But the Democrats still have work to do.”

“The president made a lot of promises,” King agreed, “and they expected that to be kept.”

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
