Will you debate him? 50

Unknown

Question

Unknown
00:02:19-00:02:27 (8 sec)
How worried are you about the border bill, sir? How worried are you? 52

Question

Unknown
00:02:27-00:02:30 (2 sec)
What's your message to Speaker Johnson? 53

Joe Biden

Unknown
00:02:30-00:02:46 (16 sec)
My message to Speaker Johnson is: Pay attention to what the Senate is doing. We've got a bipartisan deal, and you're going to see the detail of it this week. It'll be introduced on Wednesday. The border -- I've been asking since the first thing -- the first bill I introduced was on the border. We don't have enough agents. 54

Joe Biden

Unknown
00:02:46-00:03:11 (25 sec)
We don't have enough folks. We don't have enough judges. We don't have enough folks there. We need help. Why won't they give me the help, all this time? And now, they're starting about the -- about the border. "It's out of control." Well, guess what? Everything in that bipartisan bill gives me control, gives us control without being -- and still meets the needs of the people being able to come at all -- legally come across. 55

Joe Biden

Unknown
00:03:11-00:03:32 (21 sec)
We want to open avenues of legality and shut down the ones that are not coming through the points of entry. So, there's a lot we can do. And the one thing I am disappointed in we didn't get done in the Senate's piece was -- I think it's about time that -- we have all those young people who came and now -- the DREAMers. 56

Joe Biden

Unknown
00:03:32-00:03:55 (24 sec)
It's ridiculous. Can you imagine? You're four years old and your mom says, "We're crossing the Rio Grande." And you say, "No, Mom, leave me here. I don't want to go." Come on. What the hell is going on here? And they've become contributing Americans that are doing good jobs, and they're decent. So, it's about time we give them not only compassion, but a little brain -- some brains in our head about what to be doing. 57

Joe Biden

Unknown
00:03:55-00:04:05 (10 sec)
And, by the way, I've asked for money for those machines that detect fentanyl. We have these machines that can de- -- and these guys are screaming about fentanyl. 58
