Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, did not blink an eye before pointing fingers at immigrants on Monday after this weekend’s mass stabbing at a rabbi’s home.
Cuccinelli, who has been known for spreading xenophobic comments, claimed that alleged assailant Grafton Thomas, a United States citizen, was the “son of an illegal alien who got amnesty under the 1986 amnesty law for illegal immigrants,” According to The Daily Beast.
“Apparently, American values did not take hold among this entire family, at least this one violent, and apparently bigoted, son,” he added.
The Daily Beast reports, however, that it is not clear if Cuccinelli’s tweet is correct and the Trump official did not provide any sourcing for his information.
Cuccinelli has since deleted the Tweet, but we were able to retrieve it.
