The issue of illegal immigration continues to signify significant differences between Republicans and Democrats.
Traditionally, the GOP has put an emphasis on the importance of abiding by immigration laws. Republicans are also less likely to tolerate actions like hopping across the border, whereas Democrats have a tendency to excuse this type of behavior.
The 2020 presidential election has shown that the contrast between Trump and Biden on immigration couldn’t be more apparent. While the president is committed to upholding legal immigration, the same cannot be said for the 2020 Democrat nominee.
According to Breitbart News, Biden has admitted that he would not deport illegal immigrants as president, unless they committed a felony.
What to Know About Biden’s Tolerance for Illegal Immigration
The former vice president has been very clear that illegal immigration is not something that he views as a problem. For starters, if Biden weasels his way into the presidency, he’ll grant amnesty to all of 11-22 million illegal immigrants who are currently in the states.

Likewise, the 2020 Democrat nominee plans on halting all deportations for the first 100 days of his presidency, assuming that he wins. During an interview this week, Biden stated that his decision not to deport illegal immigrants, unless they commit a felony, is about “family, beginning, middle, and end.”
The former vice president then explained that he personally can’t fathom the notion of a family member experiencing deportation; in addition to vowing the reinstatement of DACA, Biden also credited illegal immigrants as a driving force for “why [America is] growing.”
Who Illegal Immigration Hurts the Most
In many cases, Democrats like Biden profess to be the fighters for the working-class; however, illegal immigration poses the greatest threat to so many working-class jobs that would otherwise be afforded to Americans.
Employers choosing to hire illegal immigrants under the table for the purposes of cheap labor is not unheard of; nonetheless, this inherently robs Americans of the opportunity to have that job and gradually work their way up the economic ladder.
1. Is Biden running against himself? He vote for NAFTA. Now he opposes it. He voted for the Iraq war. Now he opposes it. He sponsored the 1994 crime bill. Now he opposes it. He opposed illegal immigration. Now he supports amnesty and free health care for illegal aliens.

This is a reality that the pro-illegal immigration Democrats have yet to publicly acknowledge. Some have even speculated that Democrats’ love for illegal immigrants has to do with winning the extra votes, despite the criminality of illegal immigrants voting in U.S. elections.
