You’d think with all of the various investigations going on into Ilhan Omar she would be more careful about the things she tweets, especially when it comes to immigration.
She sent out this nugget of ‘wisdom’ after SCOTUS ruled in favor of the Trump administration’s wealth test for immigrants (so people don’t just come to this country to live off those who already live here):
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”
Retweet if your immigrant ancestors wouldn’t be let in if this means tested immigration policy was in place then. https://t.co/tfUQK0kphz

Maybe we missed it but when most of our ancestors came to the ‘new country’ there were no welfare programs in place …
And that’s just a poem, Ilhan.

BUT IT’S THE STATUE OF LIBERTY, MAN, AND THAT MEANS ORANGE MAN BAD.
You know, if I were you with the FBI breathing down my neck. I would probably want to keep all my stupid comments to myself…

RETWEET IF YOUR ANCESTORS CAME TO AMERICA SEEKING COVERED WAGON SUBSIDIES.

Wait, that would have to be a damn big pot.

USA USA USA!
When my grandparents arrived, there was no such thing as food stamps, Medicaid, section 8 housing, free school meals, so they decided to work.
Crazy way to run a country, wasn't it?
Then their son went back 3 years later to fight the Nazis.

So when this person’s grandparents arrived they didn’t sign up for free healthcare and college? Get outta here.
When my ancestors arrived, government welfare was not a choice. They came over and worked to build a nice life with blood, sweat, and tears. Immigrants should not come here expecting hard working Americans to support them.

You're like in your own bubble…really out there. It's weird.

Yeah that's a poem, not a law. You're either ignorant or intentionally misleading people, either way you shouldn't be an elected official.
