(CNSNews.com) – Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that passing an immigration reform law that would give the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally a pathway to citizenship would be “granting them the dignity and respect they deserve.”

~~SNIP~~

“My father would say, ‘it’s all about dignity,” Biden said. “Granting them the dignity and respect they deserve.”

Biden said not doing so would be disrespectful to the people living throughout the Americas.

“Because not doing that, it’s hard to make the case in my view, to six hundred million people in the hemisphere, that we genuinely respect you all,” Biden said. “When we do not show respect for 11 million people here in America who hail from the very countries we talk about respecting.

All illegal aliens should be granted the dignity and respect they deserve. Their deportation holding cells should properly cleaned every day.

According to Uncle Kracker we taxpayers and legal citizens do not deserve dignity and respect . Why doesn’t he go to Mexico, Ecuador and every other country these people come from and blast them for their human rights violations and get off our backs and out of our wallets.

I wish he would just shut-up and go away.

The ruling class is going to hammer this lethal bill down the throats of the governed, just like Obamacare.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

... the 'consent of the governed' my ass.

Hey Joe, how about amnesty for bank robbers. After all they only needed the cash to help their family survive during tough times. We need to protect their dignity, don’t we, and the dignity of all other law-breakers. If we give amensty to these illegal aliens who have knowingly violated our laws then why have laws? And why not give amnestay to all lawbreakers as they only broke the laws to better themselves?

Only chance to stop this horrible traitorous,Amnesty ,country destroying bill is for the Republican House to stop it as they did Bush's Amnesty push.

But the media is pulling out all stops to hide this immigration bill from the American public.

Biden said..... “Granting ( illegal aliens) the dignity and respect they deserve.”

And just exactly what is it they’ve done to deserve respect?

They’ve broken our laws, and continue doing so....they ‘demand’ from the American people they have a
“right” to be here....They march on our streets demanding “rights” of citizenship they have shown they don’t deserve.

There’s no way Biden himself “believes” what he’s saying......he’s as much ill equipped for his position as Zero is.

Biden knows his audience and plays to it perfectly.

His words resonate in the illegal community because it's all about perceptions of respect and dignity for since they are second or third class residents who can of participate fully in the country where they live.

Biden is following the model to manipulate and demagogue these people to his benefit that was perfected years ago by people named Peron, Chavez, Castro , Mugabe and do on and so forth.

Welcome to America's future of third world politics governed by incitement and emotion driven appeals to ignorant , uneducated masses

Exactly how much respect do criminals deserve when they enter our country illegally? Granted, that makes them as patriotic, law-abiding, and American as Obama himself, but that is a very low standard to measure someone against. My ancestors came here as immigrants too, but they entered the country legally, and that is a fundamental difference.

How about these illegal aliens give US citizens and the 10’s of millions of immigrants that followed the system the respect they deserve and go back home and do it legally?

that we genuinely respect you all,” Biden said

RESPECT is earned not given.
I do not respect criminals and certainly do not respect Joe Biden.

Sadly, our fate is to be swamped by aggrieved third world voters who sell their votes cheaply for false, empty promises by cynical, corrupt and lying politicians who promise them the moon but deliver them misery to their eternal graditude.

Remember, these same sort of people cried when both Stalin and Hugo Chavez died.

Biden knows exactly what he is doing and he is doing it very well indeed

For every Freeper rolling his or her eyes there are 4 people doing fist bumps and shouting You Go , Dude!

One lives in the ghetto, one lives in the barrio, another is the Dean of the Hrlarvard School of Law and the last is the Editior of the LA Times.

It is really, more than sad...it’s often heartbreaking to hear and see these people at the helm of this country with no regard for the citizens at all.

Next we’ll be labeled “World Citizens”...it’s being taught and pushed by those same people and the educational systems.

<....”We have opened a door that will never be closed!”....>

That's right...both sides of the aisle are not looking to close the border either...it's not planned in the Global Agenda. In fact N.America, and S. America too, are simply trading blocks that those who are pushing the World Governance intend to control as they spread the wealth around the world.

Individuals in all countries are basically used and will be used to support the lifestyles and games played on the International Stage among the elite....we just fund it for them.

They are operating in an entirely different mindset then true Americans....and their game is in another field than the US.

So I guess America has to grant the world the dignity of American citizenship?

(To put this in the proper perspective, a rewrite.)

Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that passing an immigration evasion law that would give the estimated 11 million Mexican citizens in the United States American citizenship without renouncing their Mexican citizenship would be “granting them the money they did not get in their third rate oligarchy of Mexico.”

Speaking at the Conference on the Americas on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Biden told attendees from countries throughout the Western Hemisphere that every nation has to make “stupid choices.”

“In the United States, it means ignoring our immigration system and allowing 11 million Mexican citizens to become American citizens, solely for the effort of leaving their native country and sneaking across our border,” Biden said. “Imagine that - denouncing your homeland yet being accepted by the scoundrels of another.

“My father would say, ‘it’s all giving Mexicans dignity they didn’t earn,” Biden said. “Harming our own citizens so that we can give Mexicans the money taken from Americans.”

Sorry Shotgun, if they “deserve” dignity and respect I suggest they get if from the Mexican government with somebody else’s tax dollars. They are breaking American laws and are in this country illegally. They don’t “deserve” JACK **** from us.

Yo, JoJo. Word.
Law-breakers forfeit their dignity and their right to respect until they have paid society back, regardless of how desperately you want your "undocumented democrat"(h/t AP) voters.

No, it’s giving them something they didn’t want in the 1st place and maybe forcing them to give up their citizenship of their country of origin.
