Joe Biden on Illegal Immigrant Children: “These are not Somebody Else’s Kids; These are Our Kids”

What is it that pro-abort people always say to pro-lifers? “Who’s going to take care of all those kids you want to save from abortion?” If you’re not in a position to adopt a bunch of kids, they call you a hypocrite. Of course, their argument is weak. Just because someone can’t adequately care for a child destined for abortion, doesn’t mean that abortion must be OK.

But liberals are more than happy to use that same pro-life “hypocrisy” with regards to illegal immigration. They want to “save all the children.” They can’t send them back to their hometowns where they might die. Let them all come running across the border where they should be granted automatic citizenship and asylum.

Biden felt so compassionate toward them that he said these kids are “our kids.” The Associated Press reported:

Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that the United States will be judged by how it treats the thousands of young immigrants showing up on its border, but warned that the U.S. will be forced to send some minors back to dangerous, unfortunate environments nonetheless.

“These are not somebody else’s kids. These are our kids,” Biden said.

Appealing to lawyers to help represent unaccompanied minors, Biden said it would be a difficult task for an overburdened legal system to assess whether children apprehended on the border meet the criteria for refugee status and whether returning them would risk their physical demise.

It sounds nice, but who’s supposed to take care of all of them? Liberals certainly aren’t opening their own doors to them. They want someone else to take care of them. Is Biden going to adopt some? Obama? Pelosi? They’ve definitely got the means to do so, but they don’t want to have anything to do with those kids. Except using them as political tools, knowing that that they’ll grow up to be good Democrats.
