Pallone wouldn’t let a little thing like the truth get in the way of amnesty.

That’s from Rep. Frank Pallone, a Democrat congressman from New Jersey who is co-sponsor of an amnesty bill.
The implication is that the soccer players who are whited out are immigrants. Get it? The U.S. can’t succeed in soccer unless we enact amnesty and a massive increase in legal immigration. The #TimeisNow! Because American-born soccer players suck! Or something.
We’re curious to know why Rep. Pallone thinks Alejandro Bedoya and Omar Gonzalez are “immigrants.” Both have Hispanic-sounding names, but they were born on U.S. soil. We certainly hope Rep. Pallone isn’t engaging in racial/ethnic profiling.
