Biden Compares Illegal Immigrants to His Irish Ancestors

Vice President Joe Biden defended Central American migrants taking advantage of asylum loopholes in the immigration laws, comparing them to his own ancestors leaving Ireland for the United States during the potato famine.

Biden commented on immigration during a campaign event in Nashua, New Hampshire on Tuesday.

That’s why we are who we are, think about it, whether it was my great-great grandfather getting on a coffin ship up in the Irish Sea to come here in the middle of famine or somebody coming in Guadalajara today saying, ‘You know, I got a great idea family, let’s sell everything we have give it to a coyote take it across the border drop us in the desert, place that doesn’t want us, won’t that be fun?’
