Jim Acosta Says The Statue of Liberty Doesn't Say Anything About Speaking English or Being Skilled;
Stephen Miller Calls Him an Ignorant, Cosmopolitan Racist

Miller was answering questions about the RAISE bill in a presser.

Camera-greedy grandstanding attention whore Jim Acosta began mewling like a bitch.

"It doesn't say anything about speaking English or being able to be a computer programmer," Acosta said. "Aren't you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country if you’re telling them, you have to speak English when they get here?"

Miller pointed out that American citizens need to be able to speak English and added, "so the notion that speaking English wouldn’t be a part of immigration systems would be very ahistorical."

Acosta later interrupted Miller and asked, “are we just going to bring in people from Great Britain and Australia?”

"I have to say, I am shocked at your statement that you think that only people from Great Britain and Australia would know English. It's all -- it reveals your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree that in your mind -- no, this is an amazing moment," Miller shot back. The immigration hawk and former Jeff Sessions staffer continued, "Jim, have you honestly never met an immigrant from another country who speaks English outside of Great Britain and Australia?"

Glenn Thrush, who promised to send Jon Podesta all parts of an article for pre-clearance "because I've become a hack," whined that there were no "studies" proving the obvious, that increased supply (low-skill workers) depresses demand and thus lowers wages.

(Yeah, no studies -- except something called "the supply-demand curve, the fundamental tension of all economics.")

Miller responded:

"Maybe we’ll make a carve-out in the bill that says The New York Times can hire all the less skilled, low paid workers from other countries and see how you feel about low wage substitution."

Less skilled than Glenn Thrush? That would take some doing.

Video at the Free Beacon. You won't be surprised that attention-craving little-girl drama club reject Chubby Goth Girl Who Does Butt Stuff Jim Acosta kept babbling while Stephen Miller attempted to answer his questions, as befits a Prom Queen who earned her moment in the spotlight, damnit!
