@maz is offended by Biden describing drunk driving as not a felony.
Then posts an article that shows that drunk driving is, in fact, not a felony.
Yup. But that is not the point.
The point is that drunk driving ought to result in deportation of an illegal alien. Breathing ought to. Being here illegally is a good enough reason to deport someone. BUT
A person who is in the country illegally, and who comes to the attention of ICE should be processed for deportation. At that point it falls to the illegal alien to offer evidence that it is in the best interest of the country to grant him the privilege of staying here. Having a good job and citizen-children would argue in his/her favor. Getting arrested against it.
We will have these endless arguments until we fix the system. Reagan could see that and offered a program of amnesty for millions of them. The modern republican party sees them simply as a vote-getting tool to be pulled out every election time and left in their indentured servitude the rest of the time.
This comment by Biden pretty much rules out his running for office and may actually cost the democrats the entire election. Of course he became instantly unelectable with this comment. The commercials that will spring from this whether directed against Biden or "democrats favor letting illegal alien drunk drivers go free...." could very much put districts that were likely democrat in contention. My personal opinion is that this alone may be the end of the democrat's hopes for 2020. I see no defense by any democratic candidate for this.
It was virtually inevitable that Biden or someone else would do this eventually. Though I will go through the motions I actually believe that this will be the moment I think of when I consider my loss of interest in the election. Up to this point it was the absurd impeachment hearings which by themselves could hand the election to Trump though possibly costing him a couple of senate seats.

IT IS A KILLER.
