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 Biden in the video stands in stark contrast to the Democratic frontrunner who has accused Trump of using migrants’ illegal status “to demonize people” and called his immigration policy “one of the darkest moments in our history.”
Filmed at a South Carolina campaign stop in November 2006, the clip is hardly ancient history. Biden was referring to his vote for the Secure Fence Act, which secured over $1 billion for 700 miles of double-layered fencing on the border, and he wasn’t alone in supporting it – then-Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama also voted for the measure.
