THIS IS A STORY ABOUT AN #IMMIGRANT
#FRIEDRICHTRUMP Grandfather to #PresidentDonaldJTrump
Who was EXPELLED from Germany for failure to perform his military duties and was Classified as a #DraftDodger
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick…
#CHAINMIGRATION Approaching the age of eligibility 4 conscription 2 military service in Imperial German Army, Friedrich Trump quickly decided to emigrate to the United States.
In 1885, at age 16, Trump emigrated via Germany, to the U.S.
#UNEMPLOYED
#Immigration records list his name as "Friedr. Trumpf" and his occupation as "none".[8] He moved in with his older sister Katharina – who had emigrated in 1883[3]:31 – and her husband Fred Schuster, also from Kallstadt.
#THIEVERY #MINING #MINERAL #GOLD
In Monte Cristo, Trump chose a plot of land near the train station that he wanted to build a hotel on, but could not afford the $1,000-per-acre fee to purchase it. Instead, he filed a Gold placer claim on the land, which allowed him to claim
exclusive mineral rights to the land without having to pay for it, even though the land had already been claimed by Everett resident Nicholas Rudebeck.

#GAMBLING #PROSTITUTION
Opened Dairy Restaurant in middle of Seattle’s Red Light District; Washington Street including saloons, casinos, and brothels. The restaurant served food and liquor and was advertised to include "Rooms for Ladies", a common euphemism for prostitution
#DRAFTDODGER
Bavarian authorities determined that Trump had emigrated from Germany to avoid his military-service obligations, and he was classified as a draft dodger.[3]:98 On December 24, 1904 the Department of Interior announced an investigation to expel Trump from Germany.
Officially, they found that he had violated the Resolution of the Royal Ministry of the Interior number 9916, an 1886 law that punished emigration to North America to avoid military service with the loss of German citizenship.[3]:99 For several months,
Trump petitioned the government to allow him to stay but was unsuccessful.

The President In 1885 Didn't Stop Immigrant Friedrich Trump From Coming To America

it seems like you would better understand #IMMIGRANTS at this point considering YOUR Family History. The #HYPOCRISY is Mind-Boggling to say the least.
On a night when congress turns it's focus to #DACA and #Dreamers protections, may we remember these innocent children were brought here without choice in the matter.
America is woven of the fibers of every culture and race known to man .
#POTUS45 @realDonaldTrump #DonaldTrump
Who is to say 'Who is to come or go?'
Border protections are fine... just don't justify your piety with heartless indecision. Lives hanging in the balance. GETTING SENT AWAY FROM THE ONLY LAND YOU KNOW. Homeless, scared, with children...
