KTIV - NBC - Biden Stumps Through Siouxland

Presidential candidate Joe Biden spoke to a group at his Sioux City headquarters Saturday.

Biden wants to have all combat troops out of Iraq by March of 2008.

But, the chair of the Senate's foreign relations committee says there's a difference between his plan and those of his opponents.

Biden claims his is the only plan with a "political" solution that returns control of the country to the Iraqis.

Sen. Joe Biden, (D) Presidential Candidate, says "Literally, his plan is and I've been saving this for over 9 months... is to keep using our troops as a cork in the bottle... to keep things from getting worse... to hand the dilemma off to the next president of the United States of America."

Senator Biden says his Republican opponents, who say all illegal immigrants should be deported, want the impossible.

His solution is tougher penalties for those who hire illegal immigrants. Biden also wants to give employers the resources they need to find out if an employee is a legal citizen in the first place.
