Biden to Catholic Clergy: Don't Let Amnesty Get Defeated Like Gun Control

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden urged Catholic clergy and immigration reform advocates in communities of faith to ensure comprehensive immigration reform does not get defeated like the administration’s push for gun control after the Sandy Hook Tragedy. 

“Work the districts so these members understand how all their constituents feel, not just the loudest ones,” Biden said, according to Politico. “This kind of reminds me of the gun control kind of fights we had, and gun safety. You know, the people who don’t want anything changed to have a more rational position, they’re the ones who show up in large numbers. The ones who strongly support us, they don’t show up. You guys have to show up.”

According to Politico, which obtained an invitation to listen to Biden, the call was “was intended to be a private conversation with advocates” and was “organized by the Catholic social justice agency Network, which plans to distribute 11,000 pro-immigration reform postcards to members of Congress Wednesday.” 

Biden’s remarks are an indication that conservatives have not only won on gun control in this Congress but are also close to stopping the Obama administration’s push for a pathway to citizenship for the country’s illegal immigrants.
