22. That doesn't make it better, they were none too happy with Obama when he said that.

 

From the article.

Biden has been viewed with suspicion at times by immigration activists. They point to what they call his lack of outreach to Latino communities in the past and his time as vice president under Barack Obama, who was tagged by liberal-leaning activists as the ďdeporter in chiefĒ because of his administrationís border enforcement policies.

Activists interrupted Bidenís remarks during last monthís debate in Detroit. And in early July, six demonstrators were arrested during a sit-in at Bidenís Philadelphia campaign headquarters.

The tension between Bidenís campaign and the activist community has roots in his overall campaign strategy. He's running as a centrist in a primary in which most of the other top-tier candidates are tilting left. And many liberal activists aren't enthused about an old, white moderate leading the ticket.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Bernie Sanders
