Democrats running for the presidency have a history of telling illegal immigrants to wait their turn.
Past statements from 2020 candidates like Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren have reemerged as Joe Biden, their rival for the 2020 presidential nomination, faces criticism for expressing similar sentiments at the Detroit debates.
The article goes on to state the following:
Harris suggested while vying to become California’s top law enforcement officer that illegal immigrants should “stand in line.” The former prosecutor, who was eventually voted California’s first woman and minority state attorney general in November 2010, made the comments in August of that year during an appearance before the Silicon Valley Leadership Group.
In 2012, Warren appeared to have similar views as she was running for Massachusetts Senator.
Speaking to WBUR, Warren said, “It’s partly about making sure that people obey the law. It’s about saying the people who are here need to be caught up on taxes. They need to go to the back of the line.”
She included a similar statement on her website she wrote: “There should be a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, but one that would require them to pay taxes and go to the back of the line.”
The Biden camp is dodging concerns from immigration activists after comments during the July 31 debate.
“When people cross the border illegally, it is illegal to do it unless they’re seeking asylum,” Biden said. “People should have to get in line. That’s the problem. And the only reason this particular part of the law is being abused is because of Donald Trump. We should defeat Donald Trump and end this practice.”
