Biden: Illegal immigrants are 'already Americans' (The Hill)

The nearly 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States are already citizens, as far as Vice President Biden is concerned.

"You know, 11 million people live in the shadows. I believe they're already American citizens," Biden said Thursday at a Washington gathering of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. "These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view."
