This is why everyone discounts Hollywood and the not-so smart people who live there: Actor Mark Ruffalo took to Instagram on Saturday declaring America a “nation of illegal immigrants” and insisted that the estimated millions of “DREAMer” illegals currently living here are “the fruit of America.”…If Ruffalo dealt in facts, he would know that illegals ARE NOT “the fruit of America” and we are NOT a nation of illegal immigrants:
WE’VE GOT THE FACTS:
Tucker Carlson opened up the Pandora’s Box of truth that the open borders crowd wishes he’d keep shut. The key to Carlson’s discovery is that illegal aliens are much more likely to commit crimes…In other words, the best and brightest are not crossing our border. This is contrary to the left’s propaganda about illegals being such a great asset to America. Here’s his shocking report:
“According to statistics from the U.S. Sentencing Commission, non-citizens are actually far more likely to commit serious crimes than Americans are” – Tucker Carlson
KEY POINTS TO NOTE:
“Non-citizens account for 22 percent, more than a fifth of all federal murder convictions.”
“18 percent of fraud convictions.”
“33 percent of money laundering convictions”
“29 percent of drug trafficking convictions and 72 percent of convictions for drug possession.”
“Meanwhile, the non-citizen percentage of the American people? About 7 percent.”

“As things get ugly and rhetorical let’s not forget that we are a country of illegal immigrants. The only “real” Americans are the indigenous people of America,” the Avengers star wrote in a lengthy post.
“Our #Dreamers are the fruit of America. It seems to me to use their precious lives as a bargaining chip is the opposite of the American Dream. We are witnessing, the American Nightmare. The backwards America,” Ruffalo wrote in a post apparently prompted by Senate Democrats’ decision to vote against a bill that would fund the government late Friday night, which effectively caused a partial government shutdown.
President Donald Trump argued that the government shutdown was due to Democratic lawmakers prioritizing amnesty for illegal immigrants over funding the government.
“Try to remember, openness is at the heart of our national identity, it is the best of who we are and who we have been. It is our grace, it is what drives our growth, it reaches with imagination into the future and is the nature of the goodness in the universe. Stay open in these times, if you can, it pays off. It has for me,” the actor concluded.
Last month, Ruffalo was among the many Hollywood stars who sent a letter to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) urging them to pass legal protection for DACA recipients.
