Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 10, 2018

The Slovenian-born parents of US First Lady Melania Trump became US citizens at a naturalisation ceremony in New York on Thursday, their immigration lawyer Michael Wildes confirmed to AFP. President Donald Trump's in-laws, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, took the oath of citizenship, Wildes said. He did not specify how long it had taken the Knavs to complete the citizenship process, nor whether the 48-year-old First Lady had sponsored their permanent residency. Trump has taken a hardline on immigration policy, criticizing so-called chain migration that allows naturalised US citizens to sponsor close relatives for permanent residency.

I have nothing against these people but Donald Trump has ordered the reexamination of records that allowed thousands of other naturalized citizens to be U.S. Citizens. He is an evil unAmerican traitor and we let him sell out our country every day. Had your asbestos this morning? Is your power company being forced to replace natural gas generating capacity with "clean" coal (haha)?

In Canada its very straightforward. Show us one million dollars and you are welcome to immigrate. Asians have flooded the Canadian Real Estate market, especially Vancouver. Here we pretend to accept asylum seekers, but not much. Sweden has accepted ten times as many Iraqi refugees as the USA, that caused the refugee crisis in four countries. The H1-B program has permitted a flood of lower paid skilled workers into the country, suppressing skilled wages, under the guise that there aren't enough qualified US workers. That, of course, is a lie. But, we still really need farm workers and fire fighters, largely because the pay and working conditions are unsustainable.

Here its the same, money buys access, but we like to pretend otherwise.

Sure, you hoped that Barbara Bush would rot in hell when she died because she was George Bush's mother, can't imagine how you feel about someone who is related to Trump.

I hope Melania's parents prove to be better citizens than either their daughter or her husband.

Because white chain migration = good; brown or black chain migration = bad.

Now wait for our newest troll "Isecretlylovetheorangedotard" to hijack this thread with bizarre, unprovable rants and deflections.

I guess Melania's work is done, except for the payout stated in her pre-nup. Poor Barron--moms surely doesn't want the young dullard around, and his dad isn't going to give him the time of day. Maybe he can morph into a club kid, like the Bush sisters once were...

"Chain migration is one of the disasters. You allow one person and in that one person brings in 10 or 12 people."

Trump: "And chain migration -- think of that. So you come in, and now you can bring your family, and then you can bring your mother and your father. You can bring your grandmother. You can bring your this; you can bring -- we had somebody on the West Side Highway, which I know very well -- in Manhattan -- he ran over -- I think he killed about eight people. ... That was months ago. And came in through chain migration. Or he might have also come in through a lottery. But he brought a lot of people with him. They say 22 people. Twenty-two people."

Great. Just what America needs. 22 more Trumps.

And gosh, I sure hope Trump's parents don't start running over people in Manhattan and killing them! Of course, we already know that wouldn't phase the Deplorables.

"How about chain migration? How about that? Somebody comes in, he brings his mother, and his father, and his aunt and uncle, 15 times removed. He brings them all."

I think he killed about eight people.

The nonstop -------- that comes out of Trump's mouth is staggering.

Has the man ever finished saying something without any embellishments?

Barbara Bush raised the kid who blew up the mideast to outdo his daddy. If she had instilled better values in him hundreds of thousands of people would still be alive and untold suffering would have been avoided.

And the USA would be 6 trillion dollars richer.

I doubt I ever said that but the Bush family invaded Iraq twice, resulting in the deaths of 1,000,000 people. The younger Bush did it, as his biographer tells us he said to him, because he wanted to be a "wartime President" because "wartime Presidents" have more power and he wasn't going to waste that power. He intended to use that power to privatize Social Security. He was and is a despicable human being. No excuse for war being conducted for such selfish reasons.

The word "white-privileged" comes to bear in this situation.

The second word is - "hypocrisy."

Family, first - Putin, second - U.S.A., third.
