Joe Biden Vows Flood of Immigration If Elected
[Breitbart] Former Vice President and leading 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is vowing to greatly increase the number of legal immigrants admitted to the United States every year.
In a speech to the Asian and Latino Coalition PAC, Biden promised to increase the level of legal immigration to the country beyond the roughly 1.2 million legal immigrants that are admitted every year, booming the foreign-born population to an unprecedented 45 million ‐ a 108-year record high.
Specifically, Biden said the U.S. can "in a heartbeat" import another two million immigrants today.
We could afford to take in a heartbeat another two million people. The idea that a country of 330 million people is cannot absorb people who are in desperate need ... is absolutely bizarre ... I would also move to increase the total number of immigrants able to come to the United States. [Emphasis added]In addition to an increase in legal immigration levels, Biden said his national immigration plan would ensure that all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. receive amnesty and a pathway to American citizenship.
Likewise, Biden said it is "immigration" that has "built this country," reiterating the claim that the U.S. is a "nation of immigrants," calling it "a fact."
