Class act… he is not.
Vice President Joe Biden’s message to immigration reform advocates: Don’t let your issue die like gun control did.
Speaking on a conference call of Catholic clergy and other faith leaders, Biden said it will be incumbent upon immigration reformers to be louder and more engaged with Congress than reform opponents.
“Work the districts so these members understand how all their constituents feel, not just the loudest ones,” Biden said. “This kind of reminds me of the gun control kind of fights we had, and gun safety. You know, the people who don’t want anything changed to have a more rational position, they’re the ones who show up in large numbers. The ones who strongly support us, they don’t show up. You guys have to show up.” […]
Biden’s office declined to elaborate on his comments, but his official Twitter account noted that on Tuesday “VP Biden spoke to Catholic leaders across the U.S. about the importance of passing commonsense #immigration reform.”
Several times on the call Biden referred to comments made by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), the foremost opponent of immigration reform in the House, that suggested all immigrants crossing the border from Mexico are ferrying drugs.
“Real good Christian comment,” Biden said. “He may be a good Christian, but his comments sure the hell aren’t, excuse my language.”
