CNN’s Jim Acosta Thinks The Only People Who Speak English Live In Great Britain, Australia

CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta insinuated at the Wednesday White House briefing that blocking U.S.-bound immigrants who do not speak English would limit the pool of applicants to Great Britain and Australia.

“This whole notion of they have to learn English before they get to the United States, are we just going to bring in people from Great Britain and Australia?” Acosta asked White House senior advisor Stephen Miller. Miller appeared at the podium to advocate for new legislation restricting the number of legal permanent resident cards issued each year.

A 2015 analysis by English Worldwide estimated the number of global English speakers at approximately 1.5 billion.

“I am shocked at your statement that you think that only people from Great Britain and Australia would know English,” Miller said after the exchange. “This is an amazing moment, that you think only people from Great Britain or Australia would speak English is so insulting to millions of hardworking immigrants who do speak English from all over the world.”

    “Little Jimmy” Acosta has earned his name, “Little Jimmy,” because he is a MENTAL MIDGET! A typical Liberal Socialist hack, insider and stooge of the Democrat party, “Little Jimmy” only has to open his mouth to illustrate just how IGNORANT he is. I’ve lived all over the world and flown to most countries in the Free World as well as other locales. There are people EVERYWHERE who speak English and have knowledges, skills and abilities that might be beneficial to our country and our People. Imagine that?

    No, that is a lie. Jimmy Acosta does not believe that. He asked a valid question of an alt-right advisor to trump, who has a history of saying derogatory things about minorities; and an administration who initiated a ban against countries that have been little to no threat to the United States- a ban that trump himself repeatedly referred to as a Muslim ban, and, trump who said he didn’t want any poor people on his cabinet, and who is currently rounding up all the brown people like cattle and tossing them over the fence into an area full of gangs and drug cartels where several of the people deported have been attacked- and also, that town recently discovered 78 dead bodies. So, it was a perfectly logical question to ask someone who has alt-right thinkers on his team. Steven Miller, the drama queen, wasn’t outraged or offended that Acosta asked him a logical question, he just didn’t want to be totally outed on tv. The names that people like Miller and Trump call other people- are names that are true about themselves. Acosta could have pointed out that if someone coming to this country is first required to speak English, required to be ablde to support themselves AND their family, AND have enough money to pay for their own healthcare– then doesn’t that limit applicants to ONLY wealthy people or people who already have a job set up and waiting for them? And, how is that a “fair” immigration policy? Once again we see Trump (and the GOP) favoring the wealthy and having ZERO empathy and compassion for others….This is NOT the Spirit of America.
