Joe Biden Implies All Latinos Are Illegal Aliens - WATCH
Democrat uses widely unpopular woke term 'Latinx' to claim they're all illegal immigrants
Joe Biden implied during a speech that all Latinos in America are illegal aliens who face deportation.
During remarks in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Thursday, Biden also used the widely unpopular "woke" term "Latinx" while insinuating that all Latinos are living in the United States illegally.
Despite Biden's claims, however, the vast majority of Latino Americans, more than 60 million, are U.S. citizens.
"It’s awful hard as well to get Latinx vaccinated,” Biden alleged.
"Why?" he asked rhetorically.
"They’re worried they’ll be vaccinated and deported.”
Video of Biden's comments quickly went viral, with many noting how offensive his comments were to America's Latino communities.

“It does not occur to Joe Biden that tens of millions of Latinos are American citizens,” tweeted former Trump 2020 campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh.
A study by the Pew Research Center found that only one-fourth of people living in the United States who trace their roots to Latin America and Spain have heard of the term “Latinx,” a “gender-inclusive” word for Hispanic and Latino.
And only 3 percent use the term “Latinx,” a percentage “similar across all major demographic subgroups.”
Many Latinos criticize the name for “ignor[ing] the Spanish language and its gendered form.”
“What is Latinx???” one Twitter user asked.
“I would appreciate you stop calling us that.
"I’m a #Latino and my wife is a #Latina. Somos #Latinos.
"Please get that straight!”

According to Pew, the only people who really use “Latinx” are “celebrities, politicians and grassroots organizations.”
Additionally, “academic centers at community colleges, public universities, and Ivy League universities” are jumping on the politically correct bandwagon and rebranding Latino programs with new “Latinx-focused” names, despite actual Latinos rejecting the term.
Many were quick to point out (yet again) that Biden is imposing “Latinx” on Latinos who do not use or like the term.
“I can’t imagine a scenario where it’s ok to impose an unpopular label on minorities,” Texas media strategist Giancarlo Sopo wrote on Twitter.

He thinks most Latinos are here illegally. We are not.
He thinks Hispanics like being called “Latinx.” We hate it; I can’t imagine a scenario where it’s ok to impose an unpopular label on minorities. https://t.co/XDXySOVgcM

I have a feeling Twitter's headline would be much different if a Republican trafficked in stereotypes and imposed an unpopular label on an entire ethnic minority. pic.twitter.com/hj5F6Hyfds— Giancarlo Sopo (@GiancarloSopo) June 25, 2021
In the 2020 election, Trump expanded his support not only in southern Florida, but also among Latinos in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin, according to The Federalist.
In 2016, Hillary Clinton won Starr County, Texas, an area that is roughly 96 percent Latinos, with 79 percent of the vote.
By contrast, in 2020, Joe Biden won by only 5 points, a swing to Republicans of more than 25 points.
In nearby Zapata County, Texas, which is 85 percent Latino and historically reliably blue, the county turned red, “the first time since Reconstruction that a Republican presidential candidate won Zapata County,” according to the Washington Post.
Only 3% of Hispanics use the term “Latinx” and 76% have never heard of it. It’s a term woke White people have imposed on them against their will which is racist. https://t.co/1BL5xxGUKK— Marc Thiessen (@marcthiessen) June 25, 2021
Despite hoping to win over Latinos in larger margins in the future, Joe Biden and other white, left-wing elites are insistent on stereotyping all Latinos as illegal immigrants and ignoring their desire not to sacrifice the Spanish language at the woke altar.
