Seems like Obama needs a debate with Joe Biden by Proinmigrant
Sen. Joe Biden, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's incoming chairman, and running know for Vice President wants to get tough with Mexico, calling it an "erstwhile democracy" with a "corrupt system" responsible for illegal immigration and drug problems in the U.S.
Biden, D-Del., was in Columbia months ago in his first post election trip to this first-in-the-South presidential primary state.
During a question-and-answer session before more than 230 Columbia Rotary Club members, Biden was asked about immigration problems.
Biden, who favors tightening the U.S.-Mexico border with fences, said immigration is driven by money in low-wage Mexico. On my opinion I will said driven by the unscrupulous NAFTA trade agreement who put Millions of Mexicans away from their Jobs, Their Lands, Their Families and their Country.
"Mexico is a country that is an erstwhile democracy where they have the greatest disparity of wealth," Biden said. "It is one of the wealthiest countries in the hemisphere and because of a corrupt system that exists in Mexico, there is the 1 percent of the population at the top, a very small middle class and the rest is abject poverty."
Unless the political dynamics change in Mexico and U.S. employers who hire illegal immigrants are punished, illegal immigration won't stop. "All the rest is window dressing," he said.
An even bigger problem are illegal drugs "coming up through corrupt Mexico," he said. "People are driving across that border with tons, tons — hear me — tons of everything from byproducts for methamphetamine, to cocaine, to heroine." I hear you clearly and loud Mr. Biden but seems to me like you listen to the dubious and Anti Immigrant Lou Dobbs at CNN where there is no other point of Entry of Drugs, of people; Shame on you Mr. Biden....There had been found many indoors marijuana plants farms within the States, many Labs producing methamphetamine and other drugs and for that source I shouldn't use Lou Dobbbs either CNN. You should check FBI website.
Covering a variety of topics, Biden kept most of the crowd in their seats for an hour — twice as long as scheduled.
"I warn all of you, all of you making more than a million bucks — I hope you all are — I'm taking away your tax cut," Biden said. "I'm not joking."
Sounds like Barack Obama will need to have a debate with Joe Biden, in addition to John McCain.
