Kevin Sorbo: Only in America Are Citizens ‘Racists’ and ‘Nazis,’ But Illegal Aliens ‘Dreamers’

Taking to Twitter on three separate occasions in February, the actor best known for his starring roles in the TV shows “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Andromeda” and more recently the family-friendly films “Let There Be Light” and “God’s Not DeadKevin Sorbo called into question the left's policy on immigration.

“Only in America are legal citizens labeled ‘racists’ and ‘Nazis,’” tweeted Kevin Sorbo on Feb. 11, “but illegal aliens are called ‘Dreamers.’”

“Dreamers” is a name given to illegal aliens as defined in the DREAM Act House (HR1842) and Senate (S952) bills. As reported by The Hill, a “Dreamer” includes “any illegal immigrant who claims they came into the country before the age of 16, has been here continuously for five years, and is currently under 35 years old.”

The actor did not stop there, however. In a tweet on Feb. 10, Sorbo tweeted the following on immigration:

“Someone arguing for more immigration to do jobs ‘we will not do’

“‘That was the argument of the slave owners 150 years ago’”

 

Sorbo also called into question U.S. government policy on illegal aliens and education in a tweet on Feb. 7. Here’s what he asked:

“How can federal government ask U.S. citizens to pay back student loans – when illegal aliens are receiving a free education?”

According to Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute, in a U.S. Supreme Court case decided in 1982, Plyler v. Doe, the U.S. Supreme Court held that “a Texas statute that denied funding to local school districts for the education of children who were not ‘legally admitted’ into the United States, and which authorized local school districts to deny enrollment to such children” was in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Similarly, as reported by The Washington Times, some illegal aliens are being offered “millions in school-sanctioned assistance” from the University of California, while other illegal aliens may be eligible for in-state tuition, financial aid and in some cases scholarships, reported U.S. News.
