Joe Biden: Illegals ‘Already American Citizens’
They probably don’t want to become citizens and have to pay taxes…..
Check it out:
On Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden said he believes all of the country’s illegal immigrants are “already American citizens.”
“You know, eleven million people live in the shadows. I believe they’re already American citizens,” Biden, who may run for president in 2016, said while addressing the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, eleven million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view.”
According to The Hill, Biden also ignored a Congressional Budget Office report that determined that amnesty legislation would lower the wages of American workers and mocked those who have expressed concerns regarding amnesty and an increase in guest workers and high-tech visas.
“So much for the horror stories,” Biden reportedly said after citing studies that said more immigration would lead to economic growth.
On Wednesday, House Democrats unveiled a discharge petition to try to force a vote on comprehensive immigration reform legislation. President Barack Obama said that the bill, which would reward and grant special treatment to those who came to the country illegally, would make sure everybody is treated equally.
