IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER - POLITICIAN

Rate this Entry

The Governator is probably the most famous immigrant in America and frequently talks up his immigrant roots. Do I really need to tell about Arnold's bio - California governor, movie star, famous body builder?



Oh yeah, did I mention that Arnold is probably the most successful person with an illegal immigrant past? The link is to an article I wrote about four years ago. While it is not 100% certain Arnold was an illegal immigrant, it certainly looks that way. To his credit, Arnold has come out in favor of legalizing unlawfully present immigrants.

    Well, when he campaigned, I do remember him bashing illegal immigrants and boasting with coming legally. Never thought the claim would hold water under scrutiny. To his credit, his ******* up to conservatives subsided recently.

    Hello Greg good to have you back !!!.

    After reading this note on Arnold my wife and I were reflecting about the dual nature or dependability of the things, the color white exist because the black exist, the good only because the bad and so on.

    Reflecting on immigration, (legal or Illegal) I can't Imagine the existance or fame of Loud Dobbs, Jeff Sessions, Tancredo, Big Talker etc, without the presence of illegals. Just imagine what would they say, or talkt about? Without illegals there is no attraction on their speech, not interesting show. Some how the need the Illegals to make their bussines and way of living.

    Same as you post "The immigrnt of the day" would be nice to post the "anti immigrant of the day and reflect how they take advantaje of the issue for themselves". well just a suggestion.

    Take care.

    A lot of times I think the Governator comes a cross as sort of anti-immigrant specially in his beginings. Recently and once he realized that he was governing California and needed the hispanic vote is that he remeber that he is an immigrant too. I would not vote for him as Immigrant of the day but he is certaintly a famous immigrant.

    The mentioning of Prop 187 in your article from 4 years ago brings back some memories...
    I came to California in early 1994, and I saw then Gov. Wilson's campaign ads, which disgusted me. They were so anti-immigrant it was unbelievable.
    In any case, these ads, and Prop. 187, resulted in a lot of Latinos becoming citizens, and helping elect Democrat Gray Davis as governor. They also helped Loretta Sanchez get elected for the House for the Santa Ana district, defeating loudmouth "B1" Bob Dornan.

    Does anyone know what Gov. Schwarzenegger's stance is on in state tuition for undocumented immigrants? If the Dream Act passes in the near future, states can decide whether to offer in state tuition to illegal immigrants. I'm sure the Democratic legislature will allow it but I don't know if the Gov. will veto it.
