I must confess I didn't know about this at all until I saw John Oliver's brilliant comedy segment! Lord help us for, a) carrying such blatant racism unto the 21st century, b) lying about that "land of the free" bit and c) forcing us to get such crucial information about our own nation not from civics class, but from a COMEDIAN! And a British one at that! (Though I see we did allow him to emigrate and even vote. But then he's not of an alien race, is he?)
We have got to turn this around right away. We've already embarrassed ourselves on the world stage enough! Let's do the right thing and let these people vote with us! Write to congress and ask for their full citizenship. Enough already of alien races!
