At the CPAC convention a couple of days ago, the crowd booed a speaker who was talking about the beauty of naturalization ceremonies. Those are events that welcome legal immigrants as they become citizens of the United States.
You know, like the president’s wife. Boo!
Perhaps these Americans who believe themselves to be “patriots” — but are actually white supremacists — should check their Ancestry.com account to review where their families originated before they came to this country. I’m going to guess it’s a place where there weren’t many people with brown or black skin.
They could also read this speech that my brother Seth, then Deputy Secretary Of Labor, gave at a naturalization ceremony eight years ago. It was (and is) a beautiful welcome from a grandson of immigrants to a group of new citizens from around the world.
