Unless you're a Native American, you came from someplace else. Share your family's story: http://at.wh.gov/kQgOt #ImmigrationNation
And how did their open borders policy work out for them?
“Unless you’re a Native American”??? What — do they think the Indians spontaneously generated from dust? Either being born here is enough to render one a ‘Native American’ or NO ONE is.
I was born in 1 of these 50 United States. But I can see how to a foreigner who was born in say “Kenya” that might be confusing.
FUBO!! My family (both sides) have been here since before the American Revolution and we Robinsons and Mortons fought in the Revolution and in every American war since defending our constitution and our freedom!! You, sir, are an ass. An America-hating, freedom-hating Communist ass!!
Actually, my family fought to create this country.
I hate that PC term.
If “American” means of the USA, those peoples are NOT “NA” due to ethnicity or even being in this region. The USA did not exist when their tribes were running about.
As well, what do they call these peoples not in the USA, or North America, or south of the USA?
They are aboriginal, or indigenous. Too bad if that offends.
Wounded Knee won't happen again.
The tax was repealed a few years later.
Proud to say my x7grandfather fought in the American Revolution and has a DAR registration number.
I’m of this soil, asshole.
Irrelevant nonsense. Everyone came from somewhere else. I doubt there is one group living on this earth that still lives in the general area where their first human ancestors lived.
And if one subscribes to the PC out-of-Africa theory, then all groups began in Africa, including the so-called Native Americans.
It’s a world of immigrants.
Where am I supposed to go Barry? Digging deeper every day to tear us apart. Traitor.
WK was apparently partly about gun grabbing.
Liberals have a difficult time with the word “legally”. Yes my ancestors immigrated to America from Europe, but they did so legally — unlike the lot of illegal immigrants that Liberals (and their Republican cohorts) now seek to give amnesty.
Perhaps this is why the Liberals who work for the Associated Press refuse to use the correct term “illegal immigrant”.
Soooo ... the Founding Fathers are? ....
Who would know better about being a non native American than a non native whatever it is?
OWGs responsible for fomenting community organizing against tyranny and collectivism.
But I am a native American....my birth certificate says so....unlike the bozo in chief
Yet another attempt to balkanize and de-Americanize the place ...make everyone concentrate on their differences, where they “came from,” not where they ARE, or where they should have loyalty to.
Divide and conquer. More of the same old same old.
My ancestors came from a piss poor little town in Germany. I’ve been there to see it. It’s nothing special. I’m DAMN glad those hard headed Germans decided to leave that drab place and relocate to upper state NY so my family could stand a chance and flourish here. It’s nice to know where they came from, but it’s even MORE important to know WHY they left.
As for the Irish side, well, starving, poor and weak is no way to go through life. Wouldn’t you relocate if all you had to eat were rotten, diseased potatoes?
Almost every country in the world was settled by "immigrants."
My mom was a (legal) immigrant, but on the other side, we have been here since well before the Revolution. GG and Grandma were proud DAR members.
Funny how he thinks islamics have the “right” to invade, suubvert, attack, take over anywhere on earth but Americans don’t have any more rights in USA. (Ps: has he come up with any new stories where he came from?)
“Unless you’re a Native American, you came from someplace else.”
I was born here so I am a native American . Is the white house espousing creationist philosophy ? Are they saying the Indians were created here?
The White House is doing way too many recreational drugs and playing too much golf. I was born in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Somewhere else my @$$. I didn’t sneak in across the Bering Straight “land bridge”.
Anybody that doesn't like it can kiss my ass.
And to add, grandma always told the story of the German side who demanded that the kids and everyone in the family learn English, once they arrived in the late 1880’s. They had declared that they were now Americans and that was it ...it was considered SHAMEFUL to speak the language of the old country.
I’m sure many families could recount a similar story.
I think we need to consider — WHO is coming here and what is their character?
It’s a stupid argument. A guy born to two Indians on a reservation is no less “from someplace else” than I am. I do not possess the physical molecules of my great grandparents, much less did I personally live anywhere other than here my entire life.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
And the “Native Americans” came from Mongolia.
More intentional provocations from 0bama to divide America.
And we came here LEGALLY!
When our founders spoke of the enemy within, they were speaking of Obama and his America-hating, freedom-hating, godless socialist ilk.
When my ancestors came here.. they fought for the North in the Civil War... they didn’t demand welfare.
This is deeply offensive. Putting both people who were born here and people who immigrated here LEGALLY in the same camp as illegals, set apart from Native Americans, is outrageous. ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE CRIMINALS!
They are here because they broke our laws, they insulted our nation. The people whose ancestors go back generations are here because they FOUGHT for this land, and defeated the Native Americans, and those who immigrated here legally are here because they FOLLOWED and RESPECTED the laws of those victors.
This admin makes me want to puke.
The ancestors of "Native Americans" came from someplace else, as well. But we all (originally) climbed off from Noah's Ark.
That is a concept entirely too deep from somebody living large in the White Hut who earned his spurs smoking up the Choom Wagon.
Trouble is most Americans have no clue how this country was founded in any respect...they are no longer taught this in our schools...therefore they easily swallow this administrations every syllable without question.
There is a difference between “illegal aliens” and “Immigrants”...so it’s a none arguement.
when you buy land, or take it in war, it becomes your land.
white colonists were not the only oes that broke treaties.
Well, having been born here, I am a native American. My grandparents were all Jews from eastern Europe.
Obviously, if you were not born here, you’re from somewhere else.
So what is the point the WH is making?
No the so called “Native Americans” came from someplace else, too...
No lollypop for you...
The thing is, dumbo, your pet illegal aliens came from someplace else, uninvited, without prior permission...
in other words ILLEGALLY ...they broke the law and continue to break the law...
My forebears were invited by the owners of this land to come here...
First the Dutch, and then the English...
I have no illegal alien ancestors...
1623/4 My Huguenot/Walloons on the New Netherland to NYC had permission fron the Dutch crown to come here..
1630 My Suffolk family came to English colony, MASS with Gov Winthrop..
1645 My Dutch supercargo on a ship belonging to the Dutch West India Company had permission to stay and settle in the Dutch colony, New Netherland...(later New York after 1664)
1680 The English crown sent my refugee Huguenot family here to their colony, New York
1710 Queen Anne of England sent my Palatine German family among 3,000 to the Livinston Manor area, across from Albany in her English colony..
1720 My Catholic Irish family came here from Ulster to the east bank of the Hudson River below Renssalaer indentured to Livingston, who was a rich land owner with the privilige to have “guest workers”
and so on...
I havent found one ancestor who broke into the country...
and my few families to New Zealand from 1850 on are similarly accounted for...all legally English crown and or Church of England sent new settlers...
I came here AFTER jumping through every required hoop and satisfying the immigration laws...
Both of the Obamas have been confused about American history...
Michelle has told some whoppers also...
Also just look at what the cultural impact of unlimited immigration was for the American Indians. Didn't work out so well for them.
