Biden Says Influx of Migrants is ‘Only Reason Our Economy’s Good’

President Joe Biden said on a radio show that the masses of illegal immigrants entering the United States have made “our economy so good.”

“One of the reasons that we’re growing so much is we have a significant influx of immigrants coming into our country, only reason our economy’s so good. We’re not a xenophobic nation,” Biden said. “Other nations are, we’re not, that’s why our economy is the best in the world.”

Discussing immigration patterns, Biden said,“It’s even a bigger influx now in terms of Hispanic voters, or Hispanic – Hispanic citizens, who want to become citizens.”

Biden also suggested that speaking Spanish will be the “future” of America.”

“The Hispanic community is part of the future of America. Twenty-eight out of every 100 students in school speak Spanish, the idea that you’re gonna ignore that? That’s our future.”

Biden previously called illegal immigrants “model citizens.”

During a Cinco de Mayo event, the U.S. president said, “Can you imagine a kid, two years old, saying, ‘Mom, don’t take me across the Rio Grande. It’s against the law.’ Give me a break.”
