IMMIGRATION/JOE BIDEN: “I think people should have to get in line [for immigration into the US]. 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.
Look, the other thing, Chris, is why are they coming? The reason a vast majority of these people are coming from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador is because they’re in trouble. Crime rates are high, education is terrible.”
