Thanks to Norma for this link, richest since the Republican candidate who said you needed a passport to go to southern Arkansas.

A California congressman told a group of DREAM Act-eligible students that he understands what it’s like to be an immigrant because he was born in Arkansas. The Washington Post‘s Plum Line blog reported that Rep. Gary Miller (R-CA) was confronted by a group of young immigrant activists at a political event in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

“You know, I’ve talked to a lot of young people like [you],” Miller told the activists. “I mean, I understand the difficulty. Just like I was born in Arkansas. I came here when I was a year old.”

Born in Arkansas and still he became a congressman? Cue the "Impossible Dream."

It's going viral. From Daily Kos:

Can Miller be deported back to Arkansas?

Does California bar benefits for people from Arkansas?

Is he forbidden from visiting Arkansas, lest he not be allowed back into California?

Does he get pulled over and asked for papers for looking like he's from Arkansas?

Is he or his children blocked from going to college or joining the military because his parents were from Arkansas?

Does California have an entire political party dedicated to making life miserable for people from Arkansas?

Is his ability to emerge from the shadows in California dependent on whether assholess like Rep. Gary Miller decide to be a little less assholish for at least one vote?

No? Then he should shut the fuck up. Even I, having lived a bona fide immigrant experience, have no clue what it must be like for our undocumented. But Miller moved once, so he totally feels them even though he votes consistently against them? Jackass.
