Biden espouses hard line immigration stance that flies in the face of ‘open border’ democrats

With Joe slipping in the polls as of late, will this latest attempt to pander to the middle backfire?

Joe Biden has been hoping to keep some distance between himself and the radical wing of the democratic party.

This is all part and parcel to the belief that his “moderate” reputation will help him take back the White House from Donald Trump in 2020.  While other candidates continue to exude their belief in wild ideas like free tuition and voting rights for convicted terrorists, Biden is playing the pandering game, hoping to keep the democratic centrists under his spell.

But this could backfire for “Sleepy Joe” on some of the more hotly contested issues such as immigration, where the more progressive liberal contenders are pushing for open borders.

Host Chris Cuomo asked, “You have people who are running close to you now who are saying, decriminalize coming into the country illegally. Do you believe that should be decriminalized?”

Biden responded, “No, I don’t. I think people should have to get in line. But if people are coming because they’re actually seeking asylum, they should have a chance to make their case. I would be surging, as we did, and Barack and I did, surging folks to the border to make those concrete decisions.”
