During a recent speech, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he is an illegal alien and he challenged ICE to deport him. However, it did not work out as he expected.
He started by bashing Conservatives. “Then we showed the extreme conservative movement that they are taking us back and we are not going back we are going forward. We are going to expose their hypocrisy and how dangerous they are. Their anti-immigrant. First, there is no greater case of hypocrisy than them being anti-immigrant. Unless you are a Native American, Apache, Sioux, Comanche, you are an immigrant. And they are not Native Americans,” said Cuomo.
“You want talk about undocumented and the way they torture the DACA children. I’m an Italian-American, I came from poor Italian-Americans who came here. You know what they called Italian-Americans back in the day? They called them wops. You know what wop stood for? Without papers. I’m undocumented. You want to deport an undocumented person, start with me, because I’m an undocumented person,” he said.
However, the truth is Cuomo is not an ‘undocumented person’. He was born here, and his parents were born here. He got criticized by people from all sides. “Statement on Cuomo claims of being son of “poor immigrants,” “undocumented” & “middle class.” Our @antonioalarcon: To immigrant NYers…these fabrications are offensive…His parents weren’t immigrants, his family wasn’t poor, & he has no idea what it’s like to [be] undocumented,” writes an immigrant group Make the Road Action.
Dictionary.com even joined in telling Cuomo the definition of ‘undocumented’. “Undocumented: Lacking documentation or authentication. #Cuomo” tweeted dictionary.com.
