Biden Won't 'Count Drunk Driving' As Felony, Vows To Fire Dissenting ICE Agents

"You change the culture by saying you are going to get fired," Biden said. "You are fired if, in fact, you do that."

Des Moines, IA – Presidential hopeful Joe Biden vowed to fire Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents if they deport illegal aliens for criminal offenses that aren’t felonies, and said he does not “count drunk driving as a felony."

Felony drunk driving laws vary from state to state, but generally in the U.S. people need numerous DUI convictions or they need to seriously hurt somebody to get a felony DUI conviction.

The 77-year-old former vice president’s declaration came on Monday during a Vice News forum regarding minority issues, the Washington Examiner reported.

At one point during the forum, Biden was asked what exact changes he would make “to ICE as an agency,” the National Review reported.

“We’re not going to deport anybody who has not — in this country — committed a felony in this country. In this country, committed a felony,” he said, according to Breitbart.

Biden told his interviewer that he plans to simply fire ICE personnel unless they agree to stop enforcing the law by deporting illegal aliens who haven’t been convicted of felony offenses, the National Review reported.

“You change the culture by saying you are going to get fired. You are fired if, in fact, you do that,” he quipped. “You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that's committed, and I don't count drunk driving as a felony.”

In 2019, a total of 49,106 illegal aliens were arrested by ICE following DUI convictions, Breitbart reported.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was quick to issue a statement following Biden’s comments.

“Drunk driving is the Number 1 killer on America’s roads and a violent crime that MADD believes should be punished to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of the offender’s immigration status,” the statement read, according to Breitbart. “In all drunk driving cases, MADD supports the victims and their wishes in the prosecution and sentencing of offenders who kill or injure someone.”

In the past, Biden has falsely claimed that a drunk driver was responsible for causing a crash that killed his wife and 13-month-old daughter in 1972, the National Review reported.

“It was an errant driver who stopped to drink instead of drive and hit—a tractor-trailer—hit my children and my wife and killed them,” he said during a speech at the University of Delaware in 2001.

He blamed the tragedy on a drunk driver again while campaigning in 2007, according to the National Review.

“A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly — and I never pursued it — drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly and killed my daughter instantly and hospitalized my two sons,” Biden said at the time.

But Biden’s allegations against the driver were entirely untrue, Politico reported.

Not only was the truck driver, Curtis C. Dunn, not drunk at the time of the collision – he even had the right-of-way, said Jerome Herlihy, a former deputy attorney general who was involved with the case.

Biden’s wife was holding their young daughter when she drove into the path of the oncoming truck.

“She had a stop sign,” Herlihy told Politico. “The truck driver did not.”

Investigators determined that Dunn was not responsible for the tragedy.

“I concurred in their decision that there was no fault on his part,” Herlihy confirmed.

Dunn’s daughter, Pamela Hamill, said that her father “was haunted and was tormented” by the fatal collision for the rest of his life, the National Review reported.

Dunn passed away in 1999.

Biden did call at one point to apologize for his comments, Pamela said.

“He apologized for hurting my family in any way,” she said, according to the National Review. “So, we accepted that — and kind of end of story from there.”

Actually deporting the people would be "insubordination" and not "dissent."

"Dissent" is where you disagree with what the decider has decided, but abide by the decision anyway.

Biden will say and do absolutely anything to get a vote. What a terrible, hurtful thing to blame his families terrible accident on a man that wasn’t intoxicated or even at fault. The man, Biden, is a habitual liar. Now, he wants to fire ICE agents for doing their job and for following the oath they took. What a POS Biden is.

Hey Joe they are here illegally if they can be deported

Just being in the country illegally is a crime; hence the word "illegal alien." They should be deported for that reason only. He and the rest of his party are just plain insane. Doddering, pathetic fool. If he fired an employee for doing their job, it would be much more of a crime.

If biden wants to change the law, than he knows what the process to change it is. threatening to fire ICE agents for enforcing the current law is not a good position to advocate for, unless you are pandering to supporters who are against enforcing the existing laws

Knowledge is power.

I used to have that website icon next to BlueLivesMatter, but it was just too sickening. The naivety of Biden is so bad it hurts. You listen to Trump when he talks about illegals, He knows, he gives warning and he is 100% against the Cartels and the gangs they control. I have to wonder if Uncle Joe even realizes Mexico is run by the Cartels. Sure the country has government, but it answers to the Cartels. LEGAL Latinos, on the other hand, are exceptionally good people, primarily conservative and God fearing. Whether from Mexico, Puerto Rico or and other Spanish speaking country. The problems of illegals are myriad and Biden belongs in a padded cell.

Joe Biden and his liberals all keep their jobs for not doing what they are supposed to do, that is protect the Amercian people and protect the U.S. constitution. Why it makes sense to them that he wants to fire those who are doing their job enforcing American laws and the U.S constitution. The liberals are a joke!

Illegal is illegal, so they should be deported and forced to come here legally.

Maybe Biden doesn't count drunk driving as a felony but many states have a felony DUI law. Is he going to wave his lunatic wand and make them disappear? He might be getting himself into hot water on this one. I hope so. People don't like drunk driving.

On another note, are those of you in other states being constantly bombarded with TV ads for Bloomberg?

If a seasoned formerly moderate pol like Joe Biden has to say something this way out crazy to get the Democratic nomination, then President Trump can be sure of reelection. Bye bye Joe. Bye bye Dems.

Maybe I'm wrong but prior to being deported, doesn't the person have a hearing before an immigration judge who decides (orders) if the person will be deported? If so, ICE agents aren't deporting said person but merely enforcing a judge's order?

Biden has been a pos his whole life. He has ALWAYS lied about everything. He doesn't know squat about the Constitution he just bluffs his way through everything. I don't think he could fire those employees if he wanted to. He would be the one breaking the law. Gee I wonder if the demoncrat scum in congress would impeach him....lol. The worst thing is he acts like the biggest tough guy out there. I wonder if he has ever even been in a fight in his entire life. I think he's a pussy.

Biden will say anything to get a vote! He already lied several years back that his wife and daughter were killed by a drunk truck driver when in fact it was not the truck driver's fault; he had the right-a-way. Biden did not admit it for sometime after the accident. I would never believe Biden about anything he says.
