 Biden in 2006: U.S. Needs Border Fence to Stop ‘Tons’ of Drugs From Mexico
Posted By Cameron Cawthorne On May 10, 2019 @ 7:40 pm In Issues | No Comments

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who has been critical of President Donald Trump's immigration policies, previously expressed similar views, saying a barrier at the southern border was needed to stop "tons" of drugs from coming into the United States.

Speaking to a South Carolina rotary club in November 2006, then-Sen. Joe Biden (D., Del.) touted his support for the Secure Fence Act, a bill that authorized "700 miles of double-layered fence on the border through more than a billion dollars in appropriations," CNN reported Friday. Biden made the comments in the run-up to his failed presidential bid in 2008.

DEM supporters keep forgetting that both Houses (consisting of DEMS as well) passed the Secure Fence Act.

A very strong barrier is needed not only to stop drugs, but people and diseases!!

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Biden caught in immigration hypocrisy after rediscovered clip shows him demanding border fence

Joe Biden is being called out for immigration virtue-signaling after a video of the Democratic candidate calling for a fence "40 stories high" at the US-Mexican border to keep out the Mexicans bringing in drugs resurfaced.
"I voted for a fence," Biden boasts in the video, unearthed by CNN, before launching into a rant against "American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals" and "people driving across that border with tons, tons, hear me, tons of everything from byproducts for methamphetamine to cocaine to heroin and it's all coming up through corrupt Mexico."

The equal right of all citizens to health, education, work, food, security, culture, science, and wellbeing - that is, the same rights we proclaimed when we began our struggle, in addition to those which emerge from our dreams of justice and equality for all inhabitants of our world - is what I wish for all.

It was a casual remark over a lunch of salad, fish and red wine but future historians are likely to parse and ponder every word: "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us any more."

Joe, this truth is no longer tolerated by the left. You've been around too long with too much video evidence.
Principles matter. Words matter.

Yep, can't pretend Joe.


I just discovered the @mystery-ak posted this video earlier.  I didn't see it but hope she combines this with her thread. wink777

It's hard to hold Biden to something he said in 2006 when we don't hold the President to anything he said last year.
