A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States. It’s 11:00 AM on a Wednesday.
He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, “Thank you Mr. American for letting me come into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!”
The passerby says, “You are mistaken, I am a Mexican and here illegally.”
The man goes on and encounters another passerby. “Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America.”
