Born in Czechoslovakia, I experienced the realities of life very early. My family and I cheated death many times, from being bombed during World War II to dodging snipers in South East Asia.
To escape from communist treachery my family and I crossed borders through muddy fields, barbed wire, and armed guards.
At the age of nine I arrived in New York City. Two weeks in a new country I was immersed in the NYC school system, the best thing that could have happened to me.
I learned English quickly without forgetting Czech or German.
I immediately picked the political party that I would support, the Republican Party. That’s right; I knew where I belonged even at the age of nine.
I was a musician with my own band, worked with various promotional groups, started an out sourcing business for assembly of small manufacturing items, a computer company marketing hardware and software.
I served in South East Asia in Military Intelligence, held several positions in various fraternal organizations, worked on the U. S. Bicentennial Celebration, and now doing my best to strengthen the Republican Party.
NY Governor: If Trump Moves to Deport Immigrants, Deport Me First…
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo exhibited full-blown Trump Derangement Syndrome in comments attacking President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.
Yesterday, Cuomo tweeted out the following video of comments he made in November.
“If there is a move to deport immigrants, then I say 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 is safe? And who is left? Because we are all immigrants.”
Let’s see how many inanities he managed to strew in there.
There is no move to deport immigrants, only actions to prevent aliens from breaking the law and coming into the country illegally, ahead of all the people who are actually following the law.
There’s an intellectual dishonesty to drop the ‘illegal’ from the description.
Moreover, Andrew Cuomo is not an immigrant, much less an illegal alien, so he could not be deported. Although many hearing his comments seemed perfectly amenable to have him go.
His grandfather, Andrea Cuomo, may have been a poor immigrant. But Andrew was the pampered son of N.Y. Governor Mario Cuomo. He grew up with privilege, basically feeling that being the governor of New York was a birthright. Hardly the normal immigrant experience.
People who have sworn to uphold the laws of our land, such as Gov. Cuomo, should also be upholding the immigration laws otherwise they are violating their oaths.
