    Biden under fire for mass deportations under Obama

    Former VP and candidate for President Joe Biden has come under fire from Hispanic groups for his support of deporting illegal immigrants during the Obama administration.

    MILWAUKEE — Joe Biden has had a two-word retort to recent questions about his record on civil rights and race: Barack Obama.

    But when it comes to Latinos and immigration, Biden is learning that the Obama defense doesn’t do the trick: The former Democratic administration’s mass deportations of 3 million people provoked fear and fury in the community at the time, and the bad taste has lingered even with Donald Trump in the White House.

    “Biden needs to be accountable,” said Joe Enriquez Henry, vice president of the Midwestern region of League of United Latin American Citizens, which is meeting for its annual convention in Milwaukee this week. “Biden needs to make it clear, if he wants to be president, that he has compassion and understanding and he needs to ask for forgiveness.”

    Enriquez Henry, who is mobilizing Latinos to influence the Iowa caucuses, called the “major deportations” during Obama’s presidency a “terrible time” for Latinos and said Biden “needs to do his penance.”

    I wonder how much of an impact this could have on his campaign?

    This is the problem with Democrats, they are too short sighted to ever win the office again. Yes, Obama deported more illegal immigrants than Bush or Clinton, but he didn’t establish a policy to separate children from their parents as a deterrent. For people to even try to compare what the current administration thinks of Latin people vs what Obama’s administration established immigration policy was, is cognitive dissonance.
