Another Moron for President. There were no Immigrants, they were Colonists...tmiraldi


Sen. Kamala Harris, California Democrat, ignited fireworks on social media by stating in a Fourth of July tweet that the Declaration of Independence was signed by “eight immigrants.”
“A reminder this Fourth of July: it was eight immigrants who signed the Declaration of Independence. Happy Independence Day,” said Ms. Harris, whose message was echoed by others.

Eight immigrants signed the Declaration of Independence. Happy 4th Of July.



A reminder: Dems just can’t stop with identity politics.

It was actually 56 individuals who signed the Declaration of Independence. Eight born outside the colonies. All pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor for this new nation.

 Critics accused Ms. Harris of politicizing the holiday celebration with a faulty comparison to the current political debate over illegal immigration.
“In case you were wondering, the answer is yes. Democrats will politicize everything,” said the conservative website Twitchy. “Kamala Harris doesn’t so much want to celebrate the Fourth of July as use it to try and score cheap political points.”

The Declaration of Independence had 56 signers, eight of whom were born in Great Britain: Two each born in England, Ireland and Scotland; one born in Northern Ireland, and one born in Wales, according to History.com.


56 signed it, actually. I know, it's only a piece of Congressional history and no reason at all for you to know that.
She’s not wrong. She mentioned the immigrants only. She said nothing about the others…maybe because they were born here. But no reason for you to know that, ms snippy pants. Reading requires comprehension.

Whether they would have been viewed as foreign “immigrants” is unclear, given that the American colonies were under British rule and native-born colonists were considered British subjects.
None of the 56 signers was born a U.S. citizen because there was no United States of America until July 4, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Second Continental Congress.


Forty-eight of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence were born in America. The other 8 were British or Dutch, same as our entire colony/country for about 200 years. https://twitter.com/SenKamalaHarris/status/1014488703526473728 
Brilliant! When you're trying to make a lame political point, why distinguish between an immigrant and a colonist. You couldn't possibly immigrate to the US before 1783, since the country didn't actually exist.

Ms. Harris also came under criticism from those who argued that the eight “immigrants” arrived in the colonies legally, whereas the ongoing political debate is focused on illegal immigration.

Keep in mind that those eight European immigrants had to swear an allegiance to King George as a condition to immigrate. One more reason why the founders took the obligations of citizenship so seriously.
