While Vice President Joe Biden was delivering a speech about unaccompanied immigrant children to a group of activists, he (brilliantly) admitted that poverty and increased violence in Central America is not the real reason behind the surge of unaccompanied minors flooding across the southern border.
“I have spent . . . an awful lot of time looking in detail at where each of these kids come from, the neighborhood they come from, the country they from, the rate of violence in those neighborhoods, and guess what?” Biden asked, “It’s bad, but nothing’s changed.”
“Nothing’s changed in six months or a year, the neighborhoods are no more violent or less violent.”
In fact, Biden says that the surge of unaccompanied minors coming from Mexico and Central America is all a part of the drug cartel and coyote’s new business model. “What’s happened is a group of folks got together and decided that there’s a hell of a good way to make money. You just don’t transfer drugs, ‘give me $5,600 and I’ll take your baby to the border, and your baby’s going to be home free.’”
And, “Something has happened beyond the fact that there’s utter despair. That despair existed a year ago,” Biden explains, “and 18 months ago.”
Biden also blames, what he calls, “false information” for the recent spike of illegal immigrants coming into America.
I love this guy.
