WASHINGTON, DC – In the Democratic debate between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders that aired on March 15th, Biden said that he will not deport any illegal immigrant – criminal or not – in his first 100 days in office.
Is this guy serious?
Biden Promises Radical Immigration Policies, No Deportation Of Criminal Aliens For First 100 Days https://t.co/GcR6j5CbmE

Ilia Calderon, an anchor for Univision, posed the following question to Biden regarding immigration:
“You recently said, for the first time, that the Obama/Biden administration made a big mistake in deporting millions of immigrants, but you didn’t publicly speak out against it at the time. What commitment will you make, tonight, that as president you won’t deport millions again?”
It’s very convenient that Calderon framed the question with referring to those deported during the Obama era were “immigrants” and not what they actually were – illegal immigrants.
Biden promises that in his first 100 days as president, 'no one will be deported at all.' No deportations for any reason.

Still, Biden responded with citing examples that happened later on down the line of Obama’s time in office where they’d attempted to make amends for their “big mistake.”
He explained the introduction of acts like DACA, and creating safeguards for parents of DACA recipients as well.
What was most troubling was his proposed “solution” to appease the pro-illegal immigrant crowd:
“In the first 100 days of my administration, no one…no one will be deported at all. From that point on, the only deportations that will take place are the commissions of felonies in the United States of America.”

Great, so Biden’s big plan is to first do nothing and then selectively deport based upon crimes committed inside the United States. You can see why President Trump calls the political party the “do nothing” Democrats.
The moderator wanted to be sure of what she was hearing from Biden during the debate:
“So, to be clear, only felons get deported, and everyone else gets to stay?”
Biden responded with:
There are so many issues with the policy stance.

First, it completely ignores the fact that we’ll “forget” those who have illegally entered the country that have convictions of crimes involving moral turpitude from their countries of origin.
Essentially, someone convicted of rape, or some other demonstrable offense from where they came from, can stay because they haven’t re-offended yet (that we know of).
We have the immigration system established in a way to prevent people from becoming citizens if they have a proven track record of doing terrible things.
We shouldn’t award illegally entering the country to these individuals and then wait and see if they’ll commence felonious activities while present here.
Joe Biden just promised NO illegal aliens will be deported unless they commit a felony – and NO illegal aliens will be deported during his first 100 days.

Second, doing nothing for 100 days is only going to create backlogs in immigration proceedings and fill up detention centers with nowhere else to place those held up.
Then again, knowing Biden, he’d probably just have illegal immigrants with halted proceedings just released back into the community on their own recognizance.

Doing nothing for a period of over three months and then saying illegal immigrants will only be deported if they commit a felony in the country isn’t an immigration policy. It’s a move to pander.
In terms of a stance on immigration, “Quid Pro Joe” has to have one of the most outrageously lazy and dangerous approaches to the topic.

Then again, wanting to hold things off for a certain period of time seems to run in the Biden family, as we reported on Hunter Biden wanting his ongoing paternity case in Arkansas to be stalled until after the 2020 election wrapped up.
Hunter Biden’s legal team had requested that Independence County Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer postpone his active paternity case, which the next scheduled hearing iwas for March 11th at the time.
The postponement asked that proceedings be halted until after the election cycle of 2020.
Big shocker there.

The son of the presidential hopeful had his legal team cite numerous reasons why the hearings needed to pause.
For for a period of nine months.
The first noted reason by Biden’s lawyers was that his new wife has an imminent due date. The request expanded on that with:
“Defendant will supplement this motion as soon as possible with an affidavit of his wife’s treating physician.”
We’re not sure what a pregnant wife has to do with showing up in court (or not). Furthermore, the request noted her due date was coming up in a matter of weeks, not months.
Of course, there are more cited reasons. One of which was cashing in on the virus hysteria sweeping the nation:
“It is unsafe for the Defendant to travel, as travel restrictions have been implemented both domestically and internationally, particularly on airlines, due to the Coronavirus. Setting aside personal endangerment, Defendant reasonably believes that such travel unnecessarily exposes his wife and unborn child to this virus.”
I didn’t realize that someone had to be connected at the hip to their wife to make it to court. Last time I checked, the court wanted Hunter Biden to appear, not his wife.
Oh, but the biggest issue was actually President Trump, according to the filing:
“Defendant is once again the subject of intense media scrutiny arising from President Trump, Republican Senators and others politically motivated to thwart former Vice-President Joseph R. Biden’s nomination as the Democratic candidate for President.”
No offense, but Joe Biden is doing a good enough job on his own to destroy his campaign. He doesn’t need help.
There’s also the matter of the courts potentially holding Biden in contempt for not handing over those pesky financial records of his in order to properly calculate child support. His team is arguing that he shouldn’t be held in contempt for that.

This came after the mother of Biden’s child in the paternity case filed a motion that he should be held in contempt for such refusal to turn over the financial documents.
The legal team of little Biden stated that they’d happy to play ball, right around the end of Election Day 2020:
“Given that there is a temporary support order in place that Defendant has fully complied with and is providing support to the child as agreed by the parties, Defendant has no objection to entry of an order of continuing the temporary support for another nine months and rescheduling the deposition and hearing at the end of that period.”
So, in short, Biden said he couldn’t make it to court for nine months because:
- His wife is having a baby soon
- People are sick, and his wife has to follow him everywhere
- Him and his daddy is getting made fun of by President Trump
Sure, there was quite a lot of legal jargon used in the request filed by Biden’s attorneys, but that’s pretty much what the claim boils down to.
They failed to realize that they were dealing with Judge Meyer.
This was the same judge who previously told his legal team (after they tried to postpone another hearing until April):
“He needs to make himself available and unless his hair is on fire, he needs to be in Arkansas and he needs to be in a deposition.”
Back in February, Judge Meyer ordered that Biden appear in court in March, despite claims that he was too busy to appear until April. The judge plainly asked Biden’s attorney why someone without a job is so busy:
“My question to you is, why could your client not be available until after April 1? All the information I have is that he’s unemployed.”
At that time, she ordered Biden to appear in court on either March 11th or 12th, to which Biden’s attorney responded:
“I’m not representing to the court his availability on those two days, but understand the court’s order.”
Yet, Biden’s legal team was doing everything they could to postpone this hearing, but it seems that the judge could see past the games they were trying to play.
So, it was no surprise that Judge Meyer said no to his recent filing.
A released order by Judge Meyer actually said that Biden needed to be in court and can arrive by either “plane, train, or automobile” with regard to his concerns over travel.

Judge Meyer also smacked down the notion that Joe Biden’s candidacy should halt court proceedings as well, saying:
“The court cannot foresee this subsiding as Mr. Biden is a public figure and interest in his person will continue. The nine month continuance requested is excessive.”
Oh, and remember the whole thing regarding Biden’s wife being pregnant, and travel safety issues? The judge commented on that also:
“The defendant’s spouse is not allowed to attend his deposition per the prior protective order restricting onlookers and her appearance at the pretrial hearing is not required nor even suggested.”
Overall, request DENIED!
Looks like Biden is on the hook and can’t use his dad’s influence with this judge. Hats off to Judge Meyer.
