“A genealogist took commentator Tomi Lahren to task on Twitter after she made controversial comments about immigrants in this country. And she did so with Lahren’s own family history.

On Saturday, Lahren went on Fox News’ “Watters’ World” to defend White House chief of staff John Kelly’s remarks on immigrants. Kelly, formerly Trump’s homeland security secretary, told NPR last week that undocumented immigrants are “not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our modern society.”

Lahren went even further and told host Jesse Watters that people who don’t speak English or who come from poverty shouldn’t be allowed to immigrate to the United States.

“These people need to understand that it’s a privilege to be an American and it’s a privilege that you work toward. It’s not a right. You don’t just come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language and come into our country because someone says it makes them feel nice,” she said.”

  1. If Lahren wants only educated immigrants in your country , she will be the first "educated" born American form foreign descent to be deported out of the USA , coz she does not meet the standards she wants immigrants to have. After her , the most of fake fox news will follow. Pity for them no country on this planet will accept them and the Southpole will be their new home , no foreigners ,no foreign languages to hear , no natives with a tan , accept for the penguins that already live there. Well you know how this go , colonist take land and then massacre the natives. Probably gonna say , i had to massacre the penguins , they were reaching for our guns.

  2. I know this is personal – BUT. Hey Ana, with your blonde dyed hair – you're just a typical
    superficial, VAIN Los Angeles bitch. I lived in LA. I know the type. You haven't been on the planet that long – and yet you act so self-righteous and morally superior. You're full of shit.
    You're Cenk's bitch. You can't get a real job, so you do this crap.

  3. this woman may have a pretty(ish) face but a truly vile nature – she is an ogre – if i met her i couldnt help but puke all over her – disgusting!!!

  4. First of all, women were housewives before the pill came out in the 50's so not speaking english would not be a problem. We also did not have welfare that the taxpayer pays for. The US is the most culturally diverse country in the history of the world. It is changing too fast for intelligent people to be comfortable. Women wearing hadjabs where you can only see their eyes…..this generation is in for civil war and death and they deserve it. Oh yeah, and that Statue of Liberty speech was written by a frenchman. More and more, people come here to take from us, but not to assimilate. In the past, aliens would do their best to fit in, now they do their best to annoy, change, rob or destroy the host country.

  5. It's funny that these Americans? say move to where your happy and quit complaining about where you live… that kind of logic is the exact reason we have these kind of problems. Essentially your saying if you don't like the place you live in, don't do anything about it… if immigration was a issue in your state or crime or drugs etc. Would running away help anything??? I should also mention the people coming into this country are doing exactly that… running from the place they live cause they don't like it. Everyone just takes it personal and calls it racism when someone says legally they don't belong here. People back in the day came to this country during the war and plenty of other times before and after. but at this point and time it's open season there is no control on the border and that's a problem!! it's not come one come all and if no one likes the way America does things they can pack up and go to another country??? We are not the only one… to put it into perspective we have homeless we have crime we have everything everyone else does… since when does that mean it's our responsibility to pay for and care for someone not from our country??? Giving aid and helping in a time of need is one thing… but this is just taking advantage.

  6. I agree with the argument. Just one thing, many of the IRISH immigrants did NOT speak English they spoke Irish. Thats why you have so many of these butchered or misspelled irish names in America

  7. So how many illegal immigrants should we let in? With the homeless population on the rise and a housing shortage all over the country. Do we have enough housing to support the influx of of illegal immigrants? Do we have enough jobs and resources for both citizens and illegal immigrants in this country? I don't believe we do have enough jobs, housing, or resources to support illegal immigrants too. How can we take in other countries poor, tired and hungry when we can't provide the same for born American's? That poem at the feet of the statute of liberty was from a different time. It's was from a time when our country was young industrializing and much and West was opened and unsettled. Today is a different time from back then. Today America faces a different kind of threat from those that wish to pick away at our laws and sovereignty as a nation. America can not care for or other nations children until she able to care for her own. Citizens first ! Those who bleed and have bled red,white, and blue come first! Why is citizens first such a bad thing?

  8. it's too easy to bash weak-minded faux-conservatives like lahren.

    take the discourse higher and start making arguments for lax migration laws. do a reverse-strawman and argue against the principled, reasonable conservative. raise the bar for them and beat it.

  9. The same thing could be said for Gun regulation because things were different back in the 1930s, so of course, limiting the number of people intake today would be a viable option especially since we have the likes of terrorist and religious fundamentalist who want to kill simply for not favoring their toxic religion.

  10. Her family came to this country legally, they came here the right way. We are not against legal immigration we are against illegal immigration. Ellis island , knock on my front door and the door will be open to you. Break in my house through the back door your trespassing..

  11. ANA, give tomi a call since she's local and tell her she can slob on myyyyy knob. The bitch knows what side of the tracks to stay on also. She seems like one of those dingy hoes too.

  12. This feels like a bunch of false arguments put together. The original clip from Tommi was her discussing illegal immigration. TYT then start discussing her family history which has been uncovered by someone. Then they show a clip of her saying they came legally so it's an invalid point in the topic of conversation. TYT then appear to suggest that wasn't the point.

    It seems like the arguments for legal and illegal immigration are being conflated to "score points"! I just feel like this has been poorly put together on this occasion.
