Biden: Illegal immigrants are 'already American citizens'

Thomas Lifson
Joe Biden may be an idiot, but in the context of the Obama administration rewriting laws as political convenience dictates, his latest embarrassing declaration becomes chilling. Tony Lee of Breitbart reports:

"You know, eleven million people live in the shadows. I believe they're already American citizens," Biden, who may run for president in 2016, said while addressing the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. "These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, eleven million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view."

This would seem to give a green light to voting by illegal immigrants, thereby cementing permanent one party rule for the Democrats. To sanitize one of Biden’s more famous declarations, it is a big friggin deal.

Are we supposed to believe that this is just Joe being Joe? Are we supposed to discount the words of the man one heartbeat away from the presidency? The man who is running to succeed Barack Obama, and who, if Hillary Clinton decides not to run, has to be counted as the Democrat front-runner.

The Democratic Party appears to be living in an Orwellian 1984 world, where laws and the Constitution mean nothing. I can’t just move along and say that this startling declaration is mere Biden buffoonery. It is chilling.
