2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden faced pointed questioning from Univision reporter Jorge Ramos this week over the former vice president’s association with the Obama administration’s immigration policy.
Accompanied by a 2014 photo of a young boy in the custody of immigration officials, Ramos pressed Biden about allegedly keeping undocumented immigrant children in cages. The one-time Democratic primary front-runner dismissed any connection between the Obama and Trump administrations on the issue.
“What Latinos should look at is comparing this president to the president we have is outrageous,” Biden said.
He went on to elaborate on the differences.
“What happened was all the unaccompanied children were coming across the border,” Biden explained.
The Obama administration “tried to get them out” and “kept them safe” while making an effort to “get them into communities as quickly as we can,” he concluded.
