Okay, this is beyond fake news.
In all of Donald Trump’s rhetoric – even during the heat of the campaign – when did he say anything about deporting immigrants? People who are here illegally is one thing. But Trump never said anything about deporting just any immigrants. ‘Illegal’ is the operative word here.
But it’s even beyond that. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was born in New York. And he’s calling himself an immigrant and acting like a martyr. “As I’ve said before, I say again today, if there is a move to deport immigrants, I say then start with me,” he said Wednesday. Here’s what he said:
“And if there is a move to deport immigrants, I say then start with me. Because I am the son of Mario Cuomo, the son of Andrea Cuomo, a poor Italian immigrant who came to this country without a job, without money, without resources. And he was here only for the promise of America. And if we’re going to question immigrants, and deport immigrants, then who are safe? And who is left? Because we are all immigrants.”
