The haters forget, that there are sometimes receipts.

Except the 1930 census says Tomi's 3x great-grandmother had been here for 41 years and still spoke German.

Her 2nd great-grandmother had been here for 10 yrs. Spoke no English.

Her great-grandfather's 1895 baptism from MN? Recorded in Norwegian.













One last thing before I shut off my phone:
This is not about playing gotcha.
But as long as people like Lahren continue to push a specious agenda that suggests today's immigrants are somehow wholly different from previous ones, I'll keep showing just how alike they really are.

24. My brother sent me a link from Limpballs, (long time ago before I became

so liberal and loud about it). The link had Rush's words, something about ending illegal immigration and using the words, "no mas!"

I wrote back to him, (a white evangelical pastor) and reminded him that our father came to this country illegally from Canada many many years ago. We both knew that he did not get a green card until after our parents were married and both him and I were born.

He wrote back and said, "Yea but Dad wanted to become a US citizen"

WTF?

Basically he got caught being a first class hypocrite and tried unsuccessfully to defend himself.

5. Yep

Trump married two immigrants, his mother was an immigrant, as were his grandparents. Historically speaking, his family has been here for a very short period of time, BUT they are all white. This is not about immigration, it is about racism.

33. Species - Everything to know about DJT.

Orangutan
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orangutan
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Primates
Suborder: Haplorhini
Infraorder: Simiiformes
Family: Hominidae
Subfamily: Ponginae
Genus: Pongo

The orangutans (also spelled orang-utan, orangutang, or orang-utang) are three extant species of great apes native to Indonesia and Malaysia. Orangutans are currently only found in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. Classified in the genus Pongo, orangutans were originally considered to be one species. From 1996, they were divided into two species: the Bornean orangutan (P. pygmaeus, with three subspecies) and the Sumatran orangutan (P. abelii). In November 2017 it was reported that a third species had been identified, the Tapanuli orangutan (P. tapanuliensis).

Most of the day is spent feeding, resting, and travelling. They start the day feeding for 23 hours in the morning. They rest during midday then travel in the late afternoon. When evening arrives, they begin to prepare their nests for the night. Orangutans do not swim, although they have been recorded wading in water.

4. It's always been ignorant xenophobic bullshit

It doesn't really matter if these morons have the same history or not, although it does point to their hypocrisy. The historical fact is that throughout US history and throughout the US there were millions of immigrants who didn't assimilate for generations. That's why there's never been an official US language. That's also why you have these remarkable islands of culture all over that eventually melted into the US and made us who we are.

13. That's hardly a surprise.

They frequently forget about things like cameras, microphones and, now, even cell phones. Somehow blissfully unaware, they say and do the most idiotic things and later seem shocked and offended that someone has a live record of the event.

On a more particular point, I absolutely loathe Redneck Barbie.

they pull the ladder up behind. Denying others the same opportunities they had.

They come from the heartless-haters citizenry.

If they are congress members the belong to the heartless-hater caucus. Led by Paul Ryan in the House and Mitch McConnell in the Senate.

Blue eyes... Again team trDump agrees full heartily.

Blonde hair..... You have hit the trDump trifecta.

"No Irish need apply."

This country has always relied on immigrant labor and has always, at the same time, bashed immigrants. There is no new thing under the sun.

40. They want to make America white again

which is why they often pretend that people from former British colonies like India, Kenya, Nigeria, Jamaica, Guyana, don't speak English.

A lot of them don't want skilled educated immigrants coming here to steal jobs away from the type of Americans who decided education is for soft weak losers.

People from other countries don't have skills? Yet somehow American companies like to outsource and open up offices and factories overseas.

They even found that one of Tomi's ancestors came here illegally and overstayed his visa but the government took pity on the poor guy and let him stay.

It sounds like white supremacy.
