Biden: Citizenship for 11 Million Illegal Aliens, Miners Should ‘Learn to Code’

Posted on | January 1, 2020 | Comments Off on Biden: Citizenship for 11 Million Illegal Aliens, Miners Should ‘Learn to Code’


At a time when unemployment is at an all-time low, the Democrat front-runner offers a nostalgic return to Obama-era policies:

Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden said that coal miners can learn how to code, reviving a promotion of retraining blue-collar workers for positions in the technology industry.
On the campaign trail in Derry, New Hampshire, on Dec. 30, Biden said: “Anybody who can go down 300 to 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well.”
“But we don’t think of it that way. Even my liberal friends don’t think of it that way,” he added.
Biden was talking about the changing economy and the “jobs of the future,” telling the crowd that “six out of 10 jobs today, today, today, require more than a high school degree.”
“Does anybody think that you’re going to be able to stay in the middle class in the ’20s and ’30s of the 21st century without better education? Now brawn is no longer the measure. I come from a family, an area where it’s coal mining in Scranton,” he said, before making the comment about coal miners learning how to code.
Biden later touted the Obama administration helping Detroit recover, discussing how “anybody who had any talent in terms of technology left” when bankruptcy hit and claiming there was “no one who knew how to turn on the street lights” or “the sewer system.”

In the same appearance, Joe promised citizenship to illegal aliens:

[T]he candidate made it clear at a campaign rally in Derry, New Hampshire that not only will he work to establish a path to citizenship for those in the country illegally, but that he will issue them driver’s licenses.
The issue came up during a Q&A session when an attendee said: “I wanted to ask you about getting driver’s licenses for our undocumented immigrants. Do you have a plan in the works for working on that, as I believe it would help them establish residency and the first step towards possible citizenship.”
“Actually, yes and yes,” Biden answered. “And, by the way, I’m going to fundamentally change the immigration policy we have.” . . .
“The first thing I will do is send — I mean within the first couple of weeks, we already have it written — a bill to the U.S. Congress providing a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented people,” Biden said.

Don’t you just love that word “undocumented”? These are foreigners who have violated federal law, but Democrats want us to believe it’s just a paperwork error: “Oops! I forgot my documents!” And Joe’s reaction is, “Here you go — have a driver’s license and a ‘pathway’ to citizenship!”
