Biden: Obama Ancestors Would Be Kept Out Of US

From the Washington Examiner:

Biden: If today’s tough laws on immigration existed in the past, Obama would not be president

By CHARLIE SPIERING | JUNE 20, 2013

During a speech at the Hispanic National Prayer Breakfast today, Vice President Joe Biden hailed the immigration reform bill – reminding the audience that both he and the President were both the children of immigrants. He added that the immigration laws for his ancestors were not nearly as strict as the laws that immigrants are facing today.

Biden revealed to the audience that his great-great-great grandfather came to America from Ireland in 1850. He also pointed out that President Obama’s great-great great grandfather left Ireland from the same Irish county for America.

“Isn’t that amazing?” Biden asked. “Barack Obama and I are now the president and vice-president of the United States of America. If we applied the same standards that we are applying today, it wouldn’t have happened.”

Which some might say is a good argument for strict immigration laws. But, as usual, Mr. Biden is completely wrong.

Both Biden and Obama’s Irish ancestors entered the country legally. So, applying the same standards, they would still be admitted today. But today we are talking about granting amnesty to untold millions of people who came to our country illegally. Which is a minor difference Mr. Biden doesn’t seem to be able to comprehend.

In fact, you would never know it from our politicians or our news media, but the United States still has the most generous legal immigration laws in the world by far. In reality, every year the US admits more legal immigrants than the rest of the world combined.

Even Mr. Obama’s (bigamist) father was in the US legally, on a student visa. Although he did try to overstay. But Harvard University asked the INS to have him kicked out. They thought he was a ‘slippery character.’

But sadly, our immigration laws have been so flouted that Mr. Obama has had (at least) two close relatives living in this country illegally: his Aunt Zeituni and his Uncle Omar. And both ignored repeated deportation orders. And Aunt Zeituni has even been getting welfare, and government housing, and taxpayer funded hip replacements.

    Joe, Joe, Joe.

    And that would have been a bad thing because . . . ?

    Yes, there is an important difference between those who come here legally and those who come illegally.

    But there is also a very important difference between then and now. Between those who come to lend a hand, and those who come for a hand-out. Between those who come to make a contribution, and those who come to milk the system. And between those who come to join those already here, and those who come to take over. To fundamentally transform America.

    Today’s incoming groups, of course, are the first who say, “You Anglos had better learn Spanish.” (Or Nahuatl, or whatever they speak.) And the first to demand Sharia law.

    “Just fire the shotgun through the door.” Yes, thank you, Joe.

    Actually, Joe might be on to something. White europeans are a far less percentage of
    mmigration, legal or otherwise, than other nationalities. The Dept. of Sate has seen to that.

    Here’s the latest pie chart of nationalities.

    Anyone see a trend?

  3. Jeez, Joe … now you’re a straight man … don’t tempt me like this ….

    Q: What’s the main problem with Barack Obama jokes?
    A: His followers don’t think they’re funny and everyone else doesn’t think they’re jokes.

    Now that would be an excellent idea. Too bad we don’t have time machine to go back and correct mistakes like this.

    Too bad we don’t have immigration laws that are enforced like Australia and New Zealand. If you don’t have a skill that they can use, you aren’t getting in, plain and simple and if you sneak in and are caught you will do jail time then get deported.
