Associated Press reports that Vice President Joe Biden extolled immigration as crucial to American innovation yesterday at a college graduation ceremony in South Florida. The Miami Dade College graduates and their families cheered as a procession of flags from their home countries opened the program. Biden acknowledged that he was addressing many immigrants and the children and grandchildren of immigrants. Biden said a "constant, substantial stream of immigrants" is important to the American economy, urging citizenship for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. "These people are already Americans."
