Wow! Wonder why he doesn’t support this idea anymore…
Watch as former Vice President and current 2020 candidate for President, Joe Biden calls for a seven hundred mile border fence in this flashback video from 2006:
The Hill has more on this story:
CNN has unearthed 2006 remarks from former Vice President Joe Biden warning about drugs coming into the country from Mexico and defending the construction of a barrier at the southern border.
In the video, which is from a speech Biden gave to a South Carolina rotary club, then-Sen. Biden defends his vote for the Secure Fence Act, which authorized the construction of 700 miles of fencing between the U.S. and Mexico.
The video was found by CNN’s KFile.
Biden also called for a crackdown on companies that hire “illegals.”
“I voted for a fence, I voted, unlike most Democrats — and some of you won’t like it — I voted for 700 miles of fence,” Biden said at the time. “But, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high, unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and — and you will not like this, and — punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals. Unless you do those two things, all the rest is window dressing.”
“Now, I know I’m not supposed to say it that bluntly, but they’re the facts, they’re the facts,” Biden continued. “And so everything else we do is in between here. Everything else we do is at the margins. And the reason why I add that parenthetically, why I believe the fence is needed, does not have anything to do with immigration as much as drugs. And let me tell you something, folks, people are driving across that border with tons, tons, hear me, tons of everything from byproducts for methamphetamine to cocaine to heroin and it’s all coming up through corrupt Mexico.”

Just about ALL of the democrats wanted a wall…until it became possible under Donald Trump. Just proves they hate Trump more than they love this country.
I have heard the Dems from before Obama and before Clinton say we need a wall. We need people to be the kind that we’d be proud to have as neighbors. We need policemen or whatever you call it, to maintain order. And then Trump came along and Pelosi’s speech about a wall being immoral? Chickenpoop! THE DEMS ARE GREAT AT LYING, THEY HAVE PERFECTED IT. IF A DEM WON IN 2020, (WONT HAPPEN BUT ANYWAY). WE WOULD SEE A COMPLETE CHANGE OF ATTITUDE. We would then see all the good Trump has done for our country go “UP in FLAMES”. The Dems are the” biggest liars “I’ve seen in my adult lifetime. They also, will do anything to bring Trump down.
Biden forgets on purpose, whenever it’s expediently time for a LIE! He lies like pocahontas often for convenience.
Gee is CNN changing sides? They are digging up lost of these old videos.
ALL THE democrats are interested in are the almighty bucks and anything that Trump is not for!
If you don’t like it ,don’t print it, simple as that !
All Democrats were for the wall before they were against it. Everything is political to them. What is good for the country counts very little to them.
After 2026 Election the Dem lost the election so all bunds of adults throw tantrums. I thought only 3-4 years old has tantrums but No now we had to deals with Dems Adults tantrums. Dems never love this country. They’re only in for their interest and only stupid people listen to them. I’m a boats people come here when I was 15 years old learned the language and works. I love this country and this is my Home. I’m proud a Republican. I challenge anyone in the Dems 2020 panel run against Mr President Trump go to leave in any socialist country in 3 months them come back here so we can have any conversation. Stupid Bernie, kamala, the Pocahontas, now some stupid guys…….
