2020 Dems Attack Biden Over Obama’s Mass Deportations

2020 Democratic candidates blasted former Vice President Joe Biden during Wednesday’s Democratic debate over Obama-era deportations of illegal immigrants.

After former Obama HUD Secretary Julian Castro attacked Biden’s immigration record, the former vice president responded, “I found that the secretary, we sat together in many meetings, I never heard him talk about any of this when he was the secretary,” Biden said.

Dems Declare War on Biden

Castro replied, “It looks like one of us has learned from the lessons of the past and one of us hasn’t.” The audience cheered. “What we need are some politicians who actually have some guts on this issue.”

Biden shot back, “I have guts enough to say his plan doesn’t make sense.”

“Here’s the deal,” Biden continued. “When people cross the border illegally it is illegal to do it unless they are seeking asylum. People should have to get in line.”

That’s when Cory Booker jumped in to accuse Biden of “playing into Republican hands.”

Bill de Blasio Raises the Stakes

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio might have exposed Biden on this issue the most, pressing Biden on whether he tried to stop the mass deportations of illegal alines during Obama’s presidency.

“You were vice president of the United States. I didn’t hear whether you tried to stop them or not using your power, your influence in the White House. Did you think it was a good idea or did you think it was something that needed to be stopped?” de Blasio asked.

Biden said Obama was “the guy who came up with the idea for the first time ever of dealing with the Dreamers. He also pointed out that we should go to the source of the problem and fix it where people were leaving in the first place.

“Comparing him to Donald Trump, I think is just absolutely bizarre,” Biden added.

De Blasio noted that Biden still had not answered his question about whether or not he tried to stop mass deportations, saying he needed “to be able to answer the tough questions.”

“I guarantee you if you’re debating Donald Trump he’s not going to let you off the hook,” de Blasio said. “So did you say those deportations were a good idea, or did you go to President Obama and say we shouldn’t do it?”

Biden responded by saying that he was vice president, “not the president.”

“I keep my relationship private, unlike you I expect you would go ahead and say whatever was said privately,” Biden responded. “What I do say is he moved to fundamentally change the system. That’s what he did. But much more has to be done.”

Biden Trying to Have It ‘Both Ways’

Booker shot back at Biden, “First of all, you can’t have it both ways. You invoke president Obama more than anybody in this campaign.”

“You can’t do it when it’s convenient and dodge it when it’s not,” Booker added.

The exchange was significant for two reasons: One, Biden’s challengers are absolutely right that President Trump will absolutely bring up Obama’s deportation in the debates.

Second, and perhaps most importantly, is the Democratic Party FINALLY admitting that Barack Obama was every bit as “bad” with his illegal immigration policies as they constantly accuse President Trump of being?

  • This is pretty funny. An anti White people beaner, a delusional racist negro "Spartacus", and a name changing radical communist that blames 'White supremacists" for violent negro savage's attacks on Jews, blaming Creepy Joe Biden for the racist, anti White people, America hating, ILLEGAL DACA policy of the Kenyan born Mau Mau muslim Osama Bin Obama.

  • ...amazing how the stupidcrats are criticizing ohbummer for the only positive actions his administration accomplished...

    ...can't you just imagine the enemies of our country...iran, china, north korea etc; huddling and plotting how they can help put one of these ridiculous doofuses in the White House...

    God help us all if they succeed!

  • Sleepy Joe replies, oh come on folks I did not make those decisions. I was told that was the deportations would be done and I had no say in it.

  • "Comparing him to Donald Trump, I think is just absolutely bizarre,” Biden added.
    Well, isn't that the truth, but what did you expect Biden? After all, it's a bizarre world when "Bozo the clown," opps, I mean Donald Trump, could be elected President of the United States!

  • I absolutely love it when the Dems turn on each other and they are all deranged. Whoever gets the nomination will change their narrative again when they have to go against Trump. They are all against our country and our citizens and unless they can get enough illegals to vote, they can't win.

  • LOL most of these clowns invoked President Obama's name for a variety of purposes during the Obama administration and for the first year or so of the Trump administration. Now, that they are campaigning against Biden who was the VP under Obama, they are attacking both. Obama who has shown support for most of these people with one exception, Biden is the only one he has not openly supported for President. And you can bet, that once Biden drops out of the race, they will again invoke Obama's name in one way or another. So pathetic.

  • I love hearing when democrats have gone cannibal. I say that because I can't bear to actually watch this circus no matter how many clowns are participating. This only serves to prove that having more of something can have the opposite effect of merriment.
