Former Vice President Joe Biden was confronted by a group of chanting immigrant rights protesters outside a campaign event Tuesday night in Las Vegas' Chinatown.
Biden had headlined an event tailored to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders at Harbor Palace Seafood Restaurant, but as he walked outside to take pictures with the crowd that had gathered he was approached by a group of undocumented activists, shaming him for not committing to halt deportations.
About 10 women from the group United We Dream Action yelled and scream-talked in the direction of Biden and held up a banner that read 'Biden Commit 2 Stop All Deportations.'
We are here just to ask Joe Biden to give us a strong commitment to stopping all deportations,' said Carla, an undocumented immigrant from Charleston, South Carolina who declined to give DailyMail.com her last name.
Carla explained that the former vice president hasn't committed fully to stopping deportations. 'His constant answer is I will, but if people have criminal backgrounds they will be deported.' She explained that Biden's answer hasn't been good enough because the Trump administration has defined law-breaking undocumented immigrants to 'anyone and anything.'
The protesters chants were met with more chants, this from the line of Biden supporters who had hoped to get pictures with the former veep and 2020 presidential hopeful.
But the ruckus had prompted Biden to head back inside - to take more pictures with potential supporters from the Asian-American community.
Ironically, Biden's entire speech Tuesday was dedicated to increasing immigration flows, as he called President Trump's attitude clamping down on the numbers of immigrants 'absolutely bizarre.'
He talked of his family's own immigrant story, hinting that he thought his grandfather had come to the United States from Ireland 'illegally.'

Is there no lie that this man won’t tell?
I can’t wait for the Dem convention. It’s gonna be better than 1968.
His paternal third great-grandfather, William Biden, was born in Sussex, England, and immigrated to the United States.
"...undocumented activists..." is just another lie.
It won’t surprise me if a quarter of the delegates get up and walk out at the conclusion of the second day of the convention. If this comes down to a Bloomberg/Clinton rigged up deal...it’ll flip out a lot of people.
THIS SAYS IT ALL
“Former Vice President Joe Biden was confronted by a group of chanting immigrant rights protesters outside a campaign event Tuesday night in Las Vegas’ Chinatown.”
...as if this ‘protest’ was real.
>>immigrant rights protesters
anti-American illegal invader advocates.
I'd like to see President Trump halt deportations too: Deport all illegals. No exceptions. Then we can halt deportations.
Where’s ICE when you need them?
Soooo I’ll just put another check in the lose column for this state, Joe.
Just who the hell do think illegal aliens bastards are to violate our borders and our laws and then start mouthing off, with absolutely NO legal standing in a US court to stop deportations?
Crazy Uncle Joe calls an American student a lying dog-faced pony soldier for asking a question but says nothing to a herd of illegal alien fat sows that scream at him.
Wow! That's pretty serious. Documented activists are bad enough, but when they're undocumented activists, it's all over for Biden.
What are the chances he makes this his Sistah Soulja moment? ploy? pivot?
Nah, I didn’t think so
