From The Hill:
Biden: We need ‘constant, unrelenting stream’ of immigrants
Vice President Biden painted a rosy picture of the outlook for U.S. businesses Tuesday, but said economic growth hinges in large part on immigration reform, now languishing in Congress.
“We need it badly from a purely – purely economic point of view,” Biden said during remarks to the National Association of Manufacturers.
The call came amid a wide-ranging address to the business group, in which Biden said the United States is better positioned than its rivals to compete in the global marketplace.
“We have the most resilient economy in the world,” Biden told hundreds of people gathered at the business group’s annual conference. “We’re better positioned than any country in the world to lead the world in the 21st Century.”
Biden said a key to the country’s solid economic footing is the “the ‘constant, unrelenting stream’ of immigrants that has come to the United States for generations.
“Not dribbling,” Biden explained. “Significant flows.”
I don’t think he means legal immigrants. It’s pretty hard to migrate legally and the Obama administration doesn’t seem to be making it any easier.
I think he means illegal immigrants who will feel indebted to a particular political party.
