Genealogist informs conservative pundit Tomi Lahren that her ancestors were criminals after she attacks immigrants on Fox News

Fox News pundit Tomi Lahren is getting hit with a heavy dose of karmic justice after defending John Kelly’s racist remarks this weekend.

As the debate around immigration, DACA and DREAMers heats up, Saturday Lahren appeared on Fox News to double down on her anti immigrant stance.

“You don’t just come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language and come into our country because someone says it makes them feel nice. That’s not what this country is based on,” she insisted.

“These people need to understand that it’s a privilege to be an American and it’s a privilege that you work toward – its not a right,” Lahren told Fox News host Jesse Watters.

These sentiments were made to show solidarity with Kelly, after the White House Chief of Staff recently told NPR he believes that undocumented immigrants don’t deserve to be in the U.S. because they are “not people that would easily assimilate into the United States, into our modern society.”

“They’re overwhelmingly rural people,” Kelly said. “In the countries they come from, fourth, fifth, sixth grade educations are kind of the norm. They don’t speak English; obviously that’s a big thing. They don’t integrate well. They don’t have skills.”

This is where things get awkward, because while Kelly and Lahren insist immigrants need to find several ways to assimilate into American culture, it appears that their own immigrant ancestors may not live up to this pure bred standard.

Journalist Jennifer Mendelsohn took a deep dive into Kelly’s background and found out Kelly’s great-grandfather lived in America for 18 years and yet could not “read, write, or speak English.”

And Lahren’s ancestors were equally unable to assimilate.

According to Mendelsohn, the creator of what she calls #ResistanceGenealogy, “the 1930 census says Tomi’s 3x great-grandmother had been here for 41 years and still spoke German.”

“Her 2nd great-grandmother had been here for 10 yrs. Spoke no English,” she says, tweeting the documentation. “Her great-grandfather’s 1895 baptism from MN? Recorded in Norwegian.”

And to add insult to injury, Lahren’s great-great-grandfather was also indicted by a grand jury for forging naturalization papers. How amazing is it that the kind of immigrants that Kelly and Lahren love to publicly shaming, are actually part of their own family trees.
