Not all immigrants are willing immigrants but some were brought here against their will, but that doesn’t matter to many liberals, including Chelsea Clinton who reacted to a statement made by HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, who said that slaves were immigrants, with some of them seeking a better life.
Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton on Monday voiced disbelief after Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Ben Carson described slaves as “immigrants.”
“That’s what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less,” he said. “But they, too, had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”
The Senate confirmed Carson to be President Trump’s secretary of Housing and Urban Development in a 58-41 vote last week, with six Democrats and one independent senator backing him.
