Jamie Raskin Explains To Home Republicans That The Founders Are The OG Unlawful Immigrants

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) defined to Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) that the founders had been the unique unlawful immigrants to America.

After Rep. Higgins defended one in all his colleagues saying that the founders by no means anticipated this a lot unlawful immigration, Constitutional scholar, Rep. Raskin stated, ” There was no immigration regulation when the Structure was adopted in any respect. The truth is, the one illegals within the nation, no less than based on the native inhabitants, had been the folks writing the Structure. There was no federal regulation in any respect.”


To the native inhabitants that was already in the USA, the unique unlawful immigrants had been the primary settlers, who turned the colonists, who turned the revolutionaries who fought for independence and later wrote the structure that’s the basis of the present system of governance.

Republicans repeatedly refuse to acknowledge the actual historical past of the nation’s founding. Their model of occasions includes white folks writing the Structure and nothing else that occurred needs to be mentioned.

Rep. Raskin was right. The USA is a nation of immigrants, and the unique unlawful immigrants who arrived on these shores are these whose descendants would go on to write down the Structure.
