Illegal Immigration Joe Biden

‘Migrant children can stay in US’

23 Jun, 2014

Biden’s visit to Guatemala to address the number of illegal immigrants entering the US from that country turned into a mixed message.  After meeting with Central American leaders Biden says:

 We do intend, and everyone agreed, it is necessary to put them back in the hands of a parent in the country from which they came.

Then, later  on in his statement he indicated that some children will be able to stay in the US:

We’re sending immigration judges, attorneys to represent these young people and families with young people, and asylum officers. They have a right under our law to make the case — make the case that we’re here because we’re avoiding persecution. We’re avoiding something will physically affect our safety.
