Acosta stated that only immigrants from Australia or England would be allowed to immigrate under the new requirement of having to be able to speak English. Senior White House Advisor Stephen Miller unleashed a beautiful response to Acosta’s “cosmopolitan”, and I would say upper-class-society-arrogance, by reminding Mr. Acosta that many people the world-over speak excellent English. Miller told Acosta that his remarks were a little out of date in a world where English is often spoken and not all of the rest of the world is poor and uneducated.
Acosta also complained that the new immigration rules are out of synch with the Statue of Liberty, but he forgets that the United States remains a sovereign nation and those seeking entrance must abide by our rules. The Statue of Liberty was never intended to assure anyone who wants to come here immediate passage.
Although I anticipate that some conservatives will not like Mr. Miller’s quick and cutting response to Acosta’s snooty remark, I would like to hear more such biting comebacks from White House staff to the lying, phony press who only exist to attack Trump and his policies. Mr. Miller took it to the leftist press representative, and I loved it.
Barack Obama disregarded American laws that he promised to uphold at the swearing-in ceremony. As he became president and he trashed the laws of the nation and his constitutional duty to protect the citizens of America by allowing illegal aliens to pass into our nation en mass with no checks at all. We citizens were expected to just sit back and suck it up as our nation was being invaded and our liberty and safety was threatened. But when Donald Trump wants to legally and responsibly control the flow of foreigners entering America you’d think he had ordered immigrants to be lined up on Ellis Island and be shot.
The press corps attended the Stephen Miller briefing NOT to learn what President Trump’s immigration policy is, but to blindly object to it, no matter what it was.
Go Donald, and go Stephen Miller!
