This Might Be The Internet’s Greatest Clapback To Immigrant Haters

@apenguinsoul / Twitter

This may seem like old info to you, but many assume that when you’re talking about immigration, you’re talking about Mexicanos. However, Asian-American immigration advocate organizations are bringing more visibility to diversity in immigration with the new movement #ImmigrationStoryIn5Words.


Explaining your story in just five words might not seem like enough, but these tweets totally capture the essence of being an immigrant…


This tweet totally nailed the feeling of millions of immigrants.

The reason you’re switching between seven different apps is to stay in touch with los abuelitos y los primos.


Politicians are jumping in to share their stories.

People like this dude ^^ prove that not everyone knows that not all immigrants are Latino. And pobrecito, he hasn’t realized he’s also a product of immigrants.


Shoutout to Keith for making this solid Hamilton reference about the greatness of immigrants.

We work twice as hard to get the job done, but we do it, and we do it with pride.


This tweet kept it SUPER relevant.

Because what makes America already great is that immigrants can come here and become whatever they want.


There are also serious stories explaining the immigration.

And others are humanizing the immigrant experience.

Truer words have never been tweeted. ?


And you can’t talk about immigration without mentioning stories of sacrifice and unconditional love.

A lot of us can relate to these.


This man right here just wanted to point out a small detail…

Then there was this hater who you can tell is trouble just from his pic.

But he was shut down with just five words. ?

This Super PAC Is Running Ads To Remind Latinos How Racist Donald Trump Truly Is

Because it’s only racist when white people say so, right?

Super PAC Priorities USA is on a mission to dissuade Latinos from voting for Donald Trump. How? By not letting them forget what’s becoming common knowledge: Trump is racist. The super PAC is spending $35 million in digital ads attacking Trump, and they’ve kicked off their efforts by playing up Trump’s Gonzalo Curiel fallout. Trump said the Curiel, a federal judge, isn’t capable of presiding over the Trump University case because of Curiel’s Mexican heritage. According to Politico, the 30-second clips are going to be on Facebook, Instagram, Pandora and elsewhere online. These ads will also target voters in Florida, Colorado and Nevada, three key swing states with sizable Latino populations.
