The media tries to bury the fact that under the Obama-Biden administration, 3 million illegal immigrants were deported, however the illegal aliens still in America have not forgotten.
Families of the illegals who were separated during the Obama Administration are planning on staging a protest at Joe Biden's headquarters in Philadelphia to protest the separation that occurred under his leadership.
The protestors have announced that they will not leave the protest until Biden apologizes for the separation that took place.
“Philadelphia- Immigrant families whose loved ones were among the 3,000,000 deported while Former Vice President Biden was in the White House will take over Biden campaign headquarters in Philadelphia on Wednesday,” the protestors said in a press release. “They are demanding Biden 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.”
The group also accuses the Democratic party of attacking the immigrant community.
“I am not just here to tell my own story, but on behalf of thousands of other mothers who were also separated from their families during that time,” said Norma Morales, a leader of group whose son was deported during Biden's time as Vice President. “Sometimes when we come to this country with think that we have to keep our heads down and just focus on working to provide for our children. But I’ve lost that fear and found my courage because I know that just like anyone else?— I deserve to be treated with dignity.”
6 ppl are sitting in demanding all candidates, including @JoeBiden, have a new vision for immigrant dignity. The country has seen the inhumanity of our current immigration system & we can’t look away and go back to the status quo of silent mass deportations #DignityNotDeportation pic.twitter.com/XOPthkvxpz— Movimiento Cosecha (@CosechaMovement) July 10, 2019
Biden has been hit by all sides including the Democratic party.
During his poor performance in the Democratic primary debate, Biden got hammered by Senator Kamala Harris for his "racist policies."
"It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country," Harris said. "And it was not only that — you also worked with them to oppose busing."
She then talked about growing up in California where she was bused to integrate her public schools.
"And that little girl was me. So I will tell you that on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats. We have to take it seriously. We have to act swiftly," Harris stated.
Check out what NPR reported:
Biden called Harris' remarks "a mischaracterization of my position across the board."
He said he did not praise segregationists, and he defended his record on civil rights.
"Everything I've done in my career, I ran because of civil rights. I continue to think we have to make fundamental changes in civil rights," Biden said.
Pressed by Harris on whether he regretted his position on busing, Biden argued that he did not oppose busing generally.
"I did not oppose busing in America. What I opposed is busing ordered by the Department of Education," he said.
