Joe Biden’s snarky response to Obama deportation statistic raises eyebrows on campaign trail


With the battle over America’s broken immigration system at the forefront of the national news cycle, you would think that the 2020 candidates would be fairly careful in how they respond to questions regarding the border, detention centers, and deportations.

Some certainly are, but not Joe “The Gaffe King” Biden, who this week issued a frankly disturbing response after being questioned regarding he and Barack Obama’s record on immigration.

“When Obama was president my brother was detained and deported,” an activist speaking Spanish told Biden through a translator. “I have a three-month-old daughter and two months ago in May I was detained and put into deportation proceedings.”

“I want you to apologize to the three million immigrants that were deported and separated from their families under the Obama years,” the man asked.  Biden, who up until that point had remained silent, looked up at the cameras and crowd gathered behind the man and smirked. The former vice president quickly stopped smiling once the man began speaking again.

“I want to know if you will commit to stopping all deportations and detentions if you are elected president,” the man asked.

This is where Joe could have knocked it out of the park.  Instead, in typical Biden fashion, his response left onlookers either incensed or flabbergasted.

“No,” Biden responded defiantly. “I will not halt deportations and detentions, I would make sure that every single,” before he could continue speaking the translator jumped in to ask Biden again if he would apologize “for the three million deportations” that occurred under Obama.

The confrontation then turned uncomfortable.

“No, what I will,” Biden began to say before a crowd of immigration activists cut him off with chants of  “three million deportations” and “apologize now.” The former vice president remained quiet with a smirk on his face watching the protesters.

“You want me to answer the question,” he asked after a moment of remaining quiet. “You want me to answer your questions?”

This surely isn’t the compassionate champion of immigrant’s rights that the left was hoping -nay, expecting – to cement their status as the democratic frontrunner.

Now we’ll just have to wait and see how this bizarre behavior affects Biden’s standings in the 2020 race.
