Pssst! Hey, AP … your hackish desperation is showing again:
Anne Frank's family twice tried to flee to the US to escape the Nazis but hit restrictive immigration roadblocks. https://t.co/5i8RcQAKWQ

ABC News picked it up, too (and ran the AP’s story with less context):
Research suggests that the family of Anne Frank attempted to escape to the U.S., but their efforts were thwarted by America's restrictive immigration policy. https://t.co/Qv8XJI2Hxb pic.twitter.com/98XgOTj1pF

Is this somehow Trump's fault as well??????

Are you really doing this?

It is interesting from a historical standpoint… but…
I lean pretty far left and I'll even admit this is an extremely clumsy and misguided attempt at making a point about current immigration issues.

Digging deep for the false equivalencies.

Thought we were past the moronic Nazi comparisons, but they found a new angle: https://t.co/IjHJH0XKZi

They’ll never run out of angles.
But at least we can dunk on Democrat hero FDR with this

FDR who was a Democrat, actually turned many Jews away.

Yep. And he put Japanese Americans into internment camps. The Trump administration hasn’t done either of those things.
And this is relevant bc? Oh wait it’s Trumps fault right? This is a knock at his immigration policies???….how dumb can you get. Stuff like this is why he will be in 8 years and I don’t even like him that much
