Joe Biden Makes First Big Gaffe: ‘We Need Family Separation’

Joe Biden looks lost out there on the campaign trail. He seems to be phoning it in and trying desperately to stay away from the dreaded Biden gaffe.

Joe is famous for making campaign-ending gaffe’s causing no amount of worry among his supporters that they were on borrowed time.

Today, Biden made the first of many to comes gaffes, proving that had reason to worry. He was getting heckled at an event by people protesting the 3 million deportations that happened under Obama when he said, ‘we need family separation,’ before apologizing for some deportations but not others. (P.S. The Democrats are bad at politics.)

From Breitbart: “I want you to apologize to the three million immigrants that were deported and separated from their families under the Obama years,” a man speaking Spanish told Biden through a translator. “I want to know if you will commit to stopping all deportations and detentions if you are elected president.”

“Under my administration, there will be no family separation until there is a hearing whether or not asylum is in fact warranted,” he said. “And there is no need to put anybody in a private prison, when we did it there was a court where you could have people show up for their hearings whether or not they were separated.”

“I will not apologize for the deportation of people who have committed a felony,” he added. “I will apologize for deportations if in fact you were deported because in fact you were engaged in a misdemeanor… or your family was separated.”

“We need family separation,” Biden added, putting his hands together, appearing to indicate reunification instead.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to commit a gaffe on Friday, telling immigration activists, “We need family separation.”

Biden, who is facing increased criticism over the three million deportations that occurred under President Barack Obama, made the gaffe during a campaign event in New Hampshire when confronted by immigration activists.

“I want you to apologize to the three million immigrants that were deported and separated from their families under the Obama years,” a man speaking Spanish told Biden through a translator. “I want to know if you will commit to stopping all deportations and detentions if you are elected president.”
