President Joe Biden has come under fire after accidentally referring to Hispanic illegal immigrants as “voters” during an interview with Spanish radio show Chiquibaby on Thursday. 

While discussing the ongoing crisis at the southern border, Biden said, “It’s even a bigger influx now in terms of Hispanic voters, or Hispanic — Hispanic citizens, who want to become citizens.”

The president’s apparent flub has sparked criticism on social media with many accusing him of a Freudian slip and inadvertently revealing his political agenda. Critics claim that the Democratic Party is deliberately allowing high levels of illegal immigration to bolster support and essentially import votes for future elections.


In response to the controversy, a White House spokesperson clarified to Fox News that “Only American citizens can vote in federal elections. As fact checkers across the board have made clear, it is already illegal for noncitizens to vote in federal elections.”

During the interview, Biden also likened the current immigration levels to the 1840s Irish migration to the United States due to famine and persecution. He emphasized the importance of the Hispanic community in America’s future and praised the country’s immigration as a key factor in the strength of its economy.

He failed to mention that the majority of “newcomers” are illegal economic migrants who have skipped other countries on the way to the public dollars in the United States.
