So, CNN is on in the background while I do some work, and I overheard many canards that seem to need to be addressed:
- "We are a nation of immigrants." No, we're not. We are a nation of citizens who all came from people who immigrated here recently or a long, long time ago to everything in between. Some of us have ancestors who came here against their will, but they still immigrated here from somewhere else. However, today we are a nation of citizens.
- "Very small numbers of legal immigrants use entitlement programs." Great! That means your faux concern about people being punished impacts a very small number of people and the vast, vast majority of legal immigrants are not impacted by the new rules.
- "More white people are on entitlement programs than minorities." Again, that kind of flies in the face of your claim that common-sense entitlement control is a racist thing, doesn't it?
