Joe Biden during an interview with ABC NEWS’ George Stephanopoulos tells migrants to not come to US border, “don’t come.”
In interview, Biden points to past migrant surges but concedes this one could be worse. “It could be,” he says, before denying they’re coming because he’s “a nice guy.” Biden tells people they shouldn’t try to come while they are in “the process of getting set up.”
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: A lot of the migrants coming in say they’re coming in because you promised to make things better. It seems to be getting worse by the day, was it a mistake not to anticipate this surge?
JOE BIDEN: Well first of all, there was a surge the last two years, in ’19 and 20, there was a surge as well.
STEPHANOPOULOUS: This one might be worse.
BIDEN: No, well it could be. Here’s the deal. We’re sending back people to, first of all, the idea that Joe Biden said “Come,” because I heard the other day that they’re coming because, you know, I’m a nice guy and I won’t–
STEPHANOPOULOUS: They’re saying this
BIDEN: Yeah, well here’s the deal, they’re not.
STEPHANOPOULOUS: Do you have to say quite clearly, don’t come.
BIDEN: Yes, I can say quite clearly, don’t come, and while we’re in a process of getting set up, don’t leave your town or city or community.
