During a campaign event on Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden mocked an immigrant for asking about the record number deportations under the Obama administration. Biden told the man that he "should vote for" President Trump instead.
"Speaking at a campaign town hall in Greenwood, South Carolina, the former vice president was confronted by activists from a radical immigrant rights group called Movimiento Cosecha," Breitbart reports. "Initially, a member of the group told Biden it was difficult as an immigrant to trust him because of his defense of the three million deportations that occurred under President Barack Obama’s tenure in office. The activist, who addressed Biden in Spanish through a translator, asked the former vice president if he would commit to ending such deportations through executive action on his first day in office."
“No, I will not stop all deportations,” Biden replied. “I will prioritize deportations, only people who have committed a felony or a serious crime.”
Carlso Rojas was clearly upset with the answer as he continued to lecture Biden over the record number of deportations under him and Obama.
“You should vote for Trump,” Biden said while cutting Rojas off.”You should vote for Trump,” Biden said mocking the man.
“No, I am not going to do that,” Rojas replied, urging Biden to promise that he would end all deportations if elected president. “We want to hear you say that.”

The group Movimiento Cosecha released a statement after the confrontation, saying that they "cannot trust" the former Vice President.

“By now, it is clear that the immigrant community cannot trust Biden,” Rojas said in recently released statement. “We won’t accept empty promises of immigration reform, while our families are torn apart. We cannot allow history to repeat itself.”
Check out what Breitbart reported in relation to Biden's confrontations with immigration activists in the past:
This is not the first time that Biden has faced trouble over his immigration position on the campaign trail.
In July, one day after his campaign headquarters was stormed by open borders protesters, the former vice president was confronted by an immigration activist in New Hampshire. The activist, who claimed to be undergoing deportation proceedings, demanded that Biden “apologize to the three million immigrants that were deported and separated from their families under the Obama years.” The former vice president simply smirked at the cameras taping the altercation, before telling the activist he would do no such thing.
“I will not apologize for the deportation of people who have committed a felony,” Biden said at the time.
