(POLITICO) Vice President Joe Biden challenged Republicans to “see the Lord” or the “lightning” in regard to immigration reform during a speech he made at a reception for Hispanic Heritage month.
“I’m not offering any false hope about what they’ll do between now and the election, but … I can tell you, when this election [is] over in the lame-duck session, they may see the Lord. It is possible. But if they don’t, they will see some lightning,” Biden said on Monday at the fifth Hispanic Heritage month reception, according to White House press pool reports.
Biden spoke to a crowd of “leading members, advocates and educators from the Hispanic American community” focused on education within Hispanic communities, according to the pool report. The event was hosted at the Bidens’ Naval Observatory residence in Washington.
