Former Vice President Joe Biden had a revealing moment at a town hall in South Carolina, admitting that he would close down migrant shelters and detention facilities for illegal immigrants.
Such action would make the job of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) significantly harder.
“No, no, no, no, no, no,” he continued. “We don’t need them. We [meaning President Barack Obama and himself] found that, when we were in office, in fact … [when] we finally got things under control, you have to report back for a hearing on such-and-such a date, people show up!”
Biden neglected to mention that many of the migrant shelters and detention facilities were opened under the Obama administration (or, as Biden refers to it, the “Obama-Biden administration”), after a massive surge of unaccompanied minors to the border.
Moreover, the Department of Homeland Security recently reported to Congress that as many as 90 percent of so-called “asylum-seekers” failed to show up for their court hearings.
Other Democratic presidential candidates have also called for the facilities to be closed, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
