birthright

a tiny protip to every journalist and politician in the US right now:

“actually, she was born here” or “actually, she’s been a citizen longer than [benchmark]” is a tempting gotcha, but also: every argument along those lines implicitly accepts, “go back to where you came from” as an acceptable argument in some circumstances

literally it doesn’t matter where anybody was born; the correct response to what is a racism 101 attack is, “that’s fucking racist and saying it is appalling” hth!
