    Basically the WH wants some sort of policy that demands (or insists if you want to be generous) that immigrants speak English to be allowed in. Acosta asked if that meant only people from England or Australia would be allowed in.

    It was pretty precious.

    Acosta was also clearly just exaggerating to make a point. Miller then cranked it up to 11 to scream that Acosta was the real racist.

    Ireland doesn't exist now?

    I assume they meant English as a second language is OK, but who knows with these guys.

    Acosta was also pointing out that requiring people to know English before immigrating to the US was bullcrap, and Miller spun around to say "well, they have to know English to become naturalized," completely missing the point that you don't need to know English to become a permanent resident.

    We Yankees aren't very sensitive to the difference between British and English.

    Some states do have one I think. Puerto Rico's official language is Spanish. For the most part English is the de facto language of government, though I think some SW states allow a lot of government services to be done entirely in Spanish?

    Yeah, but see, in Canada for example, our official languages are English and French. You get bonus points in the Points-based entry program for speaking one or both. It isn't the sole requirement, and if you can make up for it elsewhere, then great - we have a lot of ESL programs for fresh migrants. You have to speak one (or often both) in order to be employed with the government, though.

    It doesn't make sense for the US to make that a points requirement since it's not entrenched in the law.

    Yeah. I just kind of switched to it trying to understand why the dude at the lectern was giving shit to Acosta as Acosta was trying to clarify something. Then Miller went off on him for deigning to suggest that people couldn't know English in other countries.

    Miller has the dead eyes of a reoccurring CBS antagonist. I can't believe he's roughly my age.

    I like the Canadian system but the devil is in the details. They should also have an additional program for refugees. Likewise, the number of immigrants should be based on current and projected needs, not some arbitrary limit intended to reduce.

    Yes, a way to appease the base. This bill couldn't even get 50 votes.

    Got about 30 seconds in and gave up

    Miller is exactly the type of asshole I've had in classes that thinks they're incredibly smart then gets a D on their final because they kept arguing with the professor about what is or isn't true and wrote incorrect bullshit and tried to pass it off as accurate

    God this administration is just fucking chock full of smug assholes.

    I had a student once argue with my econ professor that Japan wasn't a capitalist country because they have welfare.

    I laughed so hard I actually left the room for 10 minutes and when I came back in they were still arguing with the professor while the professor just looked at me and sighed.

    That is who Stephen Miller is. To a fucking T.

    Gotta say I like this tactic though. Make the whole thing about illegal immigration, then start clamping down on legal immigration.

    Hey guess what people who voted for them: it was never about immigration. it's about not-white people

    I just got home and watched the Acosta clip.

    The feined umbridge couldn't have been anymore staged if he paused to consult his notecards before launching into it.

    We're reading Rifts. You should too. You know you want to. Now With Ninjas!

    They tried to bury us. They didn't know that we were seeds. 2018 Midterms. Get your shit together.

    So, over/under on how long it'd be before he got an infraction and then a banning from here?

    Man, I don't think I can subject myself to the full thing, but the Crooked Media guys weren't kidding.

    What an asshole.
