You can't make this stuff up, folks. This is The Biden.
Remember in March when it was announced that the White House will be conducting a review of the deportation policies? Since then, there has been speculation over what exactly that will entail, from piecemeal little stuff to wholesale changes.
Well. Enter The Biden:
Earlier today in Miami, he either made a major gaffe, or unwittingly announced what that policy is going to be
! Protestor yells at Biden in Miami: "stop deportations!" Biden responds, per pool: "We’ll do that, too, kid, but let me finish this speech"— Seung Min Kim (@seungminkim) May 3, 2014
The article goes on to list several pros and cons about whether or not it's a true thing.
Pro: He's done it before--see marriage equality.So, this may be nothing--a "typical Biden." But when I saw this, Ezra Klein and Matt Yglesias picked it up quick. Meaning it's going around Twitter right now, and will soon be a thing.
Con: The administration has explicitly said they can't do that.
Pro: The administration has a history of saying "we can't" and then changing its mind
Con: The administration also thinks their immigration policy is gentler than it is.
Which means that perhaps as early as Monday, Jay Carney will have to comment on it, or The Biden may have to go out on a "clarifying tour".
