Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Response to GemDigger (Reply #25)

49. He is an organizer with Movimiento Cosecha, which he has every right to be representing.

 

He is not going around disrupting and getting paid for it. He involved himself in a conversation. He did not set out to start this.

"Last Thursday, in a packed college gym in Greenwood, South Carolina, I stood next to Silvia, a local immigrant mother and activist, as she asked Joe Biden a question. I translated for her as she told the crowd about her daily fear of ICE separating her family. Itís hard for her to trust Biden, she explained, because he has defended the millions of deportations that took place when he was vice president. Under a Biden administration, could her partner or children be next?

Silvia asked if Biden would use executive action to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation on his first day in office. Biden bluntly said no and went on to defend Obamaís record on immigration. As a longtime activist, a 2008 volunteer for the Obama campaign, and a formerly undocumented immigrant myself, I pushed back and reminded him that millions of families were separated while he was vice president.

Thatís when Biden interrupted me and said: ďYou should vote for Trump."

This had nothing to do with Bernie Sanders campaign.


Press Reliese from Movimiento Cosecha:

IMMIGRANT FAMILIES SEPARATED DURING THE OBAMA YEARS TO OCCUPY BIDENíS CAMPAIGN OFFICES
Families are calling for Biden to apologize for the 3 million family separations he oversaw while in the White House, and commit to using his executive authority to end all detention and deportation on day one, if elected President. They will be joined by allies who will be sitting in at Bidenís campaign offices, refusing to leave until the campaign speaks with the families.

Philadelphia- Immigrant families whose loved ones were among the 3,000,000 deported while Former Vice President Biden was in the White House plan sit in at Biden campaign headquarters in Philadelphia on Wednesday. They are demanding Biden to apologize for separating their families, and commit that, if elected president in 2020, he would use his executive authority to put an immediate end to all immigrant detention and deportations. Families are also calling for Biden to commit to bringing home loved ones that were unjustly deported by the last two administrations.
