Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said during a CNN town hall in Las Vegas on Thursday evening that under his presidential administration nobody would be deported during his first 100 days in office. The former vice president also ruled out deporting illegal aliens for crimes committed in other countries, which would make the United States a sanctuary for criminals all over the world. 

"Nobody, and some of you are going to get mad at me with this, but nobody is going to be deported in my first 100 days until we get through the part where we find out the only rationale for deportation will be whether or not you've committed a felony while in the country," Biden said in response to a question about ICE. 

Joe Biden is considered a centrist among his fellow Democratic rivals vying for the party's presidential nomination, but turning the United States into a sanctuary country for the world's criminals is one of the craziest things we've heard in a primary teeming with crazy candidates. It'd be nice to chalk the comment up as another Biden gaffe, but it's actually one of the rare sentences Biden managed to put together without losing his train of thought. 

In January, Biden outlined another radical immigration policy of his, telling a Vice News Election Forum that he would fire ICE agents who arrest illegal immigrants for anything other than a felony, adding, "and I don’t count drunk driving as a felony."

An ever growing number of Angel Families have lost children to illegal alien drunk drivers. The Angel Families weren't voting for Joe Biden anyway, but Biden's policies would certainly create more grieving American families. The Democrats care more about protecting criminal foreigners than protecting the lives of American citizens. 

Biden's radical immigration proposals come before the Nevada Caucuses, which take place Saturday, Feb. 22. The Democratic candidates have been trying to appeal to Nevada's large Hispanic base ahead of the contest.
