Bill Kristol seems to think Republicans don’t know the difference between legal and illegal immigrants. That or he’s deliberately playing stupid when it comes to this issue to push some bizarre anti-Trump narrative that could do irreparable damage to the party that he supposedly used to belong to.
Republicans know all of this, Bill.
This ad will air tomorrow morning, July 4th, on selected stations including Fox News, to remind our fellow Americans, Republicans and conservatives that we are a nation of immigrants, and stronger for it. pic.twitter.com/3XdKAeFVTU

Yes, a nation of LEGAL IMMIGRANTS. A nation of people who went through proper channels and worked extremely hard to become Americans, not those who sneak across our borders and then expect us to treat them like the folks who did it the right way.
Sharyl Attkisson called Bill out very calmly …
I personally don't know anybody who doubts that. The divide seems to come over the question of legal vs. illegal immigrants. https://t.co/sEIQIscZiQ

Seriously, it’s like Bill is pandering to Democrats.

Not sure why the left is unable to grasp this simple concept… Maybe just ONE repetition will get it through to them? 🤷♂️

They grasp it, they just want to pretend otherwise for their narrative.
It’s gross, right?
He knows that… he’s being deliberately misleading. He’s a jackass.

How the mighty have fallen.
My Grandmother sailed past Ellis Island in 1913. She came with immigration papers. At no time did she try to scramble up the Statue of Liberty for a photo op. It’s an insult to those who came in legally.

Exactly – why is the legal/illegal issue deliberately ignored? I guess because the sympathy factor goes way up if you just say "immigrants" and ignore their legal status.

The narrative is all that really matters.
Not the policy.
Not the people.
Yeah, a lot of money spent on a strawman. Not sure @BillKristol knows what "conservative" means anymore.

And that’s beyond depressing.
