    Biden calls out Trump on immigration, says GOP front-runner's view 'will not prevail'

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden lashed out at Republican front-runner Donald Trump on immigration Tuesday, accusing him of reverting to "xenophobia" to garner support in the 2016 election.

    Biden, who is weighing a late entry into the Democratic presidential primary, called Trump's message "sick" and predicted it "will not prevail."

    "This will pass — the Trump stuff and that stuff that you're hearing on the other team," Biden said at a Hispanic Heritage Month event at his residence in Washington.

    Trump has roiled the Republican field with his call to remove the millions of people living in the U.S. illegally before allowing some to return. He's also accused some Mexican immigrants of being rapists and vowed to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.

    Biden's comments mark a rare instance of top White House officials singling Republican presidential candidates out by name. On a visit to Iowa Monday, President Barack Obama avoided mentioning individual candidates even as he drew distinctions between Democratic and Republican positions, including on immigration.

    But while Obama definitely won't be on the ballot in 2016, Biden is still contemplating a run. He's spoken movingly in recent days about the impact of his son Beau's death earlier this year and how his decision rests on whether he can make the emotional commitment to running for president.

    If Biden runs, his remarks Tuesday could serve as a template for his argument against Republicans in a general election. Both parties will be fighting for support from Hispanics, a fast-growing voting bloc that overwhelmingly supported Obama in the last presidential election.

    Biden, a Catholic, drew a distinction between Trump and Pope Francis, who is visiting the United States later this month. The popular pope has been a vocal advocate for humane treatment of immigrants and has spoken specifically about the conditions facing people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

    "Watch the response that Pope Francis gets," said Biden, who called the pontiff "the single most popular man in the world."

    As Biden closed his remarks, participants yelled "Run, Joe, Run."

    "Oh, no, no, no, no," Biden said, brushing their cheers aside and offering no new insights on his political future.

    Oh yes, they will prevail, and they should prevail. Whose side are you on, Joe? Foreign drug cartels pouring the money in? Shame on you.

    There are about 93 million White voters and about 36 million non White voters. Blacks voted 93% for Obama, Hispanics 71% for Obama, Asians 73% for Obama. If Whites voted like the other ethnic groups do, e.g. about 70% for Republicans, they would get about 61.5 million votes or 600,000 more than half of the total votes and win every election even if the other ethnic groups voted 100% for the other candidate.

    Instead of getting all hysterical about more Hispanic or "minority" votes what is wrong with getting more White votes? It would probably be a lot easier to do than competing with Democrats for votes in ethnic groups that are culturally predisposed to vote Democrat.

    What, is there a racist prejudice against White voters?

    As for Joe Biden is he a self-hating White man?

    No, he's just the same donkey he was 8 years ago when he got 2% of the vote. The only reason he's polling higher now in the Dems polls is because all their other establishment candidates make everyone sick.

    Joe Biden and Ted Kennedy were very close, personally and professionally. He will continue to support anything that Kennedy championed.
