If Donald Trump Gets His Wish, This Is What Los Angeles Would Look Like Without Immigrants

Immigrants have always been and will always be part of the fabric of this great country.

It’s unfortunate that immigrants have been used as a political punching bag this election, that Donald Trump has convinced his millions of supporters that the people who willingly do the back-breaking work no one wants to do are the root cause of everything that’s supposed to be wrong with America. This narrative has always been a lie.

The truth is that the majority of people who came to this country did it in search of a better life and are willing to put up with just about anything to get a crack at the American dream. And in the process of doing that, immigrants give a whole lot more than they take. In fact, some of them become actual, certified geniuses.

Los Angeles Magazine commissioned the video you see above, which shows just exactly how much we would lose if immigrants weren’t in this country. The magazine, by the way, will devote its upcoming issue solely to immigration.

Gina Rodriguez Performs Nicki Minaj On Jimmy Fallon

During a recent episode of “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon got Gina Rodriguez to share a side of herself that we haven’t seen since her breakout role as Majo Tonorio in “Filly Brown”: the rapping goddess. Fallon was quick to bring up Rodriguez’s past as a rapper during her time at NYU. Clearly no college party is complete without Rodriguez spitting some sick lines.

Jimmy Fallon got straight to business with Gina Rodriguez, asking her about someone named “Cutz.”

“This is correct,” Rodriguez told Fallon. “Cutz is my alter-ego.”

And, yes. It is spelled C-U-T-Z.

“I think that’s pretty cool like, ‘Cutz’,” Rodriguez said while laughing. “Cutz and it was me and my best friend and she was Lady Fury. Lady Fury and Cutz.”

So, what else is there to do than give Rodriguez a microphone and watch her flawlessly rap Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”
