Joe Biden once spoke about jailing employers who hire "illegals," said sanctuary cities shouldn't be allowed to violate federal law, and argued a fence was needed stop "tons" of drugs coming into the country from "corrupt Mexico."
"Folks, I voted for a fence, I voted, unlike most Democrats -- and some of you won't like it -- I voted for 700 miles of fence," Biden told the group. "But, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high -- unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and -- and you will not like this, and -- punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals. Unless you do those two things, all the rest is window dressing."
"And let me tell you something folks, people are driving across that border with tons, tons, hear me, tons of everything from byproducts for methamphetamine to cocaine to heroin and it's all coming up through corrupt Mexico."
During the 2008 presidential election, Biden also opposed granting driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants -- an issue that dogged Clinton in the 2008 and 2016 Democratic presidential primary.
"Yes or no, would you allow those cities to ignore the federal law?" Biden was asked. "No," he responded.
At another 2007 event, Biden called for sending employers of undocumented immigrants to prison. "We've got to get tougher with employers. In fact the person we should send to jail is not the illegals, we send to jail the employers," Biden said.
