Biden In Viral Video Calls For 700 Miles Border Wall Between U.S and Mexico.
Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi endorsed presumptive democratic nominee Joe Biden for president saying he can help guide the U.S out of the coronavirus crisis.
Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s “star boy” in the upcoming presidential election has always been a fierce critic of President Trump’s immigration policies including the President border wall proposal. But here’s were it gets funny; according to a 2006 video, Joe Biden is seen boldly 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. Joe Biden defends his vote for the Secure Fence Act, which authorized the construction of 700 miles of fencing between the U.S. and Mexico.

“Folks, I voted for a fence,” Biden can be heard saying, referencing his backing of the Secure Fence Act. “I voted, unlike most Democrats ― and some of you won’t like it ― I voted for 700 miles of fence.
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.”
Biden continues, “Now, I know I’m not supposed to say it that bluntly, but they’re the facts, they’re the facts,” Biden told the crowd during his previous 2008 bid for the presidential election.
“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.”
