As with many democrats, history starts now. What happened in the past needs to be forgotten.

Immigration fraud should cost you and the participating party your citizenship.

Why are we rewarding fraud?

Ron Kampeas writes in The Jerusalem Post:

Seffi Kogen, the Global Director of Young Leadership for the American Jewish Committee, counts at least four other lawmakers who in their lifetimes had refugee status, and two of them are Jewish:

* The late Rep. Tom Lantos, D-Calif., a Hungarian-born Holocaust survivor who made human rights a hallmark of his leadership on the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee.

* Former Sen. Rudy Boschwitz, R-Minn., who as a toddler fled Nazi Germany with his family for the United States and who also has played a prominent role in human rights advocacy.

* Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., just retired, who is of Jewish descent, arrived in Florida as a child of a family fleeing Cuba.

* Rep. Joseph Cao, R-La., the first Vietnamese American elected to Congress, served one term (2009-2011).

I’d add former Republican Florida Rep. Lincoln Díaz-Balart, also born in Cuba to a family who fled after Fidel Castro seized power.

The democrats are constantly giving good people more and more reasons to hate them, so sure, bring some vile, profane, Satan loving muslims into the mix too.

Nice going there democrats.

A great troll if President Trump declares he is transitioning to female and becomes the first woman President.

PC dictates no one contradict him, that his transition be embraced and celebrated.

Islam is antithetical to the American constitution and American judo christian roots.
As a competing constitution, it’s partitioners are a treasonous lot.

AOC is the CURRENT youngest, but someone always has to be the youngest. She isn’t close to being the youngest ever.

She was the youngest WOMAN ever elected.

ON the other hand, in 2014, Elise Stephanik, at age 30, was the youngest woman ever elected at that time, but because she was a republican, I don’t remember the media mentioning it.

It should also be noted that similar claims have been made about Rashida Tlab being the first palestinian, presumably a very distinct type of Arab, there have been over 30 Arabs in Congress. Including palestinians John Sununu and Justin Amash. Of course they're Republican, and Christian, and men, so they don't count.
