Tulsi Gabbard seeks apology from Indian-American Senator Kamala Harris

Tulsi Gabbard seeks apology from Indian-American Senator Kamala Harris

Former Vice President Joe Biden actually showed a superior grasp of this issue, reminding his rivals that seeking asylum was not a crime in the first place (and couldn't be "decriminalized") but illegal entry was and has been and that by "decriminalizing" it (while ostensibly attack Trump's refugee policies), they were inviting an increase in illegal entry.

Others simply touted the fact that he was President Barack Obama's vice president. "You can't do it when it's convenient and then dodge it when it's not".

"Barack Obama knew exactly who I was", he said. You could see it in Virginia after the various Democratic presidential candidates fell over each other to call for Governor Ralph Northam's resignation for a 36 year old yearbook photo of questionable origin that had been publicized by a rightwing website angry about the governor's stand on abortion. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) (L-R), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) went after Biden on criminal justice reform. Opponents of Biden say though he's made a career in politics, he lacks a singular accomplishment. Remarkably, one of the more electrifying moments of the evening involved Hawaii Congreswoman Tulsi Gabbard, a Caucasian who is a self-professed Hindu -American, ambushing Harris, whose mother was a South Indian Tamilian, over her record as California's attorney general and how it had negatively impacted black and brown people across the country. Kamala Harris is one of the most progressive candidates in the 2020 race.

"The only reason this particular part of the law is being abused is because of Donald Trump", Biden said. "The plan, no matter how you cut it, costs $3 trillion. Thirdly, it will eliminate employer-based insurance".

Mr Biden emphasised his work as vice president to help the vehicle industry and the city fix its bankrupt finances.

When Mr Biden fought back by criticising Mr Booker's tenure as mayor of Newark, New Jersey, before becoming a New Jersey senator, Mr Booker shot back: "You're dipping into the Kool-Aid and you don't even know the flavour".

The former vice president and DE senator said that he helped pass a bill that allocated $750 million for the Northern Triangle countries to try to alleviate the problems there so fewer people would migrate to the United States.

Gillibrand sought to make women's rights an issue as well, calling out Biden for writing an op-ed in the 1980s that appeared to criticize women who worked outside the home.

For Democrats, the internal fight, while common to nearly every primary cycle, is one many would rather avoid, favouring instead a focus on defeating Mr Trump. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), center, and former Vice President Joe Biden listen during the Democratic Presidential Debate at the Fox Theatre in Detroit on July 31, 2019.

Responding to repeated criticism of the Obama administration by Democrats like Sen. That is not crossing the border illegally.

"Go easy on me kid", Biden said, to the dislike of many critics.

Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, Texas, attacked Biden directly.
