The Trump administration unveiled a new pro-American immigration policy.
The media lost their minds.
But no one could believe what happened when CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to tangle with top Trump advisor Stephen Miller.
Acosta was furious at Trump’s plan to halve legal immigration in order protect American workers and raise their wages.
He was incensed that the Trump plan called for immigrants to be able to speak English.
So he lost his cool in the White House press briefing room.
He began to berate Miller and claimed a poem that was later added to the Statue of Liberty about accepting huddled masses somehow was a legally binding policy that mandated open borders and mass migration.
Miller mocked Acosta and swatted away his left-wing rant with cold facts.
Breitbart reports on his response:
“I appreciate your speech, so let’s talk about this. In 1970, when we let in 300,000 people a year, was that violating or not violating the Statue of Liberty law of the land?
In 1990s, when we let in half a million people a year, was that violating or not violating the law of the land? Tell me what years meet Jim Acosta’s definition of the Statue of Liberty per law of the land. You’re saying a million a year is the Statue of Liberty number — 900,000 violates, 800,000 violates it.”
But that was just the warm up.
Acosta spewed a bigoted assumption that only immigrants from Australia or the United Kingdom could speak English.
Miller ripped the mask off Acosta and called his statement insulting and a clear example of cosmopolitan bias.
Breitbart also reports:
“Jim, I just got to say, I am shocked by your statement, that you think that only people from Great Britain and Australia would know English. It reveals your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree that in your mind … this is an amazing moment … that you think that only people from Great Britain and Australia would speak English is so insulting to millions of hard-working immigrants that do speak English from all over the world.”
This was an epic takedown of an obnoxious liberal activist pretending to be a reporter.
You can watch the full thrashing below.

Maria I agree. I am a naturalized American who immigrated and my parents in 1959. We learned and spoke English because we wanted to have a new start in America. I arrived in November 1959, my parents had a sponsor and I started to work at a Mortgage company Dec. 1st 1959, it was only a short term job to cover the property tax season. I learned a lot and the president of that company helped me to get a full time job with Union Bank down town Los Angeles in the special processing department. That was the start of a very successful banking carrier. I passed my drivers license test, in English, and drove a 1959 Studebaker to work. Since I picked up the secretary of the CEO, at the Mortgage company on my way to work and home…I got a free parking spot!!!!! I earned $ 265.00 a month, no benefits or medical…..when I retired I earned a 6 figure with all the benefits. That is the story of an English speaking immigrant who worked hard. obeyed the laws and regulations and kept my nose to the grindstone. My accent never held me back. America is the land of a new beginning but one must work at it.
It is people like yourself who built this country. You are an asset and always welcomed!! It is the ‘takers’ and those who feel they are entitled to live off the efforts of others, who are the targets of public outrage. We have those now who refuse to assimulate and insist that we conform to ‘their’ ways!! They have no respect for America or her citizens. They abuse our social programs meant to help the ill and poor. They believe compassion and kindness is ‘weakness’! They are violent and demanding. They try to undermine our schools and government!! No–that cannot be tolerated. They must go!!
I understand that Canada and Australia have same or similar requirements for immigration. In fact, Canada states that you can ‘own’ property there but only ‘live’ there six months of the year. If you want to become a citizen, you need a job and, possibly, relatives that can vouch for your character. There ‘is’ a background check! If you are retired, you need to keep your insurance. The only way you can apply for their health insurance, is to pay all the ‘back’ payments their citizens have paid–according to your age. No just ‘taking’ their social support systems. I hear that, due to overwhelming immigration–there are no ‘true’ Italians anymore in Italy. They have, literally, been ‘bred’ out of existence!! Will the Europeans and all ‘fair skinned’ people be next? Each ‘race’ has a unique ‘beauty’ to add to the human race. Will that vanish? How ‘dull’—all of humanity just ‘blah’ brown! No color, no uniqueness. That won’t banish ‘prejudice’ though! People will always find ‘something’ to insult another person for–their height, weight, nose, eyes, ears,—you name it!! We need ‘self esteem’–not banishing ‘race’!!
I hope the wh keeps doing what they are doing with miller. its about time thoses fake news medis are put in there place, and who the hell cares what that dumb ass Acosta thinks about president trump does with the immigration dept. should of been done a long time ago.
WHY A COUNTRY NEEDS IMMIGRANTS, AND WHY THEY DO NOT NEED ANYMORE.
Every country encourages immigration, when their population is small and they need more people. Once they have enough people, they cut immigration severely, and only encourage immigrants who have something of value to offer the country.(THIS DOES NOT MEAN CHEAP LABOR) When I was young New Zealand would pay families to move there. Now you have to have something of value to offer them, and you will need to deposit enough money in their retirement system to cover what you would have contributed is you had spent your work years their. Those who want to allow unlimited immigration into the USA, and want to allow unlimited illegals to inter, can only have the destruction of our country and our government as their goal.
Larry, I agree with you 100%……I call it need assessment. I Have friend who reside in New Zealand and they have told me about these rules that you posted. All these safety nets in America paid for by the hard working Americans will destroy the countries, promote dead wood and retired on hand outs. It will in time destroy the identity and well being of the nation and its hard working people. Also the difference from the have and not have will grow and than you look at demonstrations and property destruction…
India and everywhere the British and America people have gone speak English in fact some Muslims speak English before they came to this country like the Muslims who helped the Soldiers as translators. This Jim Acosta is ignorant to say the least. We have the Plilippines, Gwam, Puerto Rico, there are lots of people who speak English, Poland, etc
This very rude young man who loves to ask “got cha” questions is so full of his anti-American little self that he cannot listen to the answer to his querys before he rudely interrupts to ask another which he, also, doesn’t want a response to, to ask another, etc,etc,etc.
He doesn’t seem to care how void of American History he looks, or how Anti-American, or how rude he appears to be. But he does seem to be very proud of the left wing, liberal garbage he spews out with abandon ( absent of any Constitutional knowledge).
