Mindy Kaling Calls Out Donald Trump's Plan to End Birthright Citizenship

Mindy Kaling Calls Out Donald Trump's Plan to End Birthright Citizenship

Mindy Kaling is calling out President Donald Trump.

On Tuesday (October 30), Trump stated that he wanted to sign an executive order to end birthright citizenship – or the citizenship of anyone born in the United States regardless of their parents’ immigration status. This caused great backlash from many people, including the Mindy Project star.

“Wait. I was born in the United States to two Indian professionals who later became proud citizens of this country. So… now I would be a citizen of India? My contributions to this country would be as a foreigner with no rights?” Mindy tweeted.

See her reaction below.

    I know this is ridiculous but to Mindy this is like her biggest fear ever. God forbid she has to go back to India of all places.

    Sounds like you wouldn’t be seen dead in India or ever want anyone to associate you with that Country or it’s people…sad. And on a side note, what exactly apart from sub par “humor” have you actually contributed?

  • RayonLight

    Not everyone who immigrate to this country contribute positively. Her parents are professional, therefore, enriched our country. The same cannot be said for others, if she can’t see the differences; she is as stupid and she sounds.

    taxes. prop more than u. not that i care for mindy tho xD

  • Gina

    The only place she should “go back to” is Cambridge, Massachusetts where she was born.

  • Gina

    Trump is disgusting. I’ve never seen such blatant trash in my life.

  • J.K.

    She didn’t say that

  • jadee1

    Her comment is pretty ridiculous. Her parents are professionals who immigrated here legally. One is an architect and the other is a physician. She was born in the US while her parents were going through the legal process to become citizens. She most certainly knows this and is probably playing the liberal celebrity card to influence people who don’t know any better.

  • Joy

    You apparently have no idea what Trump’s order is.
    Mindy is correct about what she said.

    And although Trump is too stupid to know it, his own plan renders him ineligible to even be the President.

    Then why not be proud of your family roots? She’s always had a problem with it. I’ve read several comments over the years where she hasn’t been very flattering. But that’s fine feel whatever you want but just come out and admit it and don’t pretend it’s all about something else when it isn’t.

  • girl93

    Hum? This is going to affect to those whose parents are ILLEGAL in the US. Her parents are legal… She should read more the news instead of saying this nonsense… Anyway this law is normal everywhere, so don’t be shocked or surprised. In my country it works in thay way. Just imagine that you should keep with your taxes hundreds of babies while their parents who are illegal and not paying anything… 🙄 And no, I’m not a Trump supporter

    Then what about the many who were born here and whose parents and other ancestors also were yet are in prison?
    The only people without foreign ancestry may be the Native Americans, well Natives, and 100.% blood.

    It isn’t about being illegal. The parents may be legally here on a vacation or on a work or education visa.
    Illegal immigrants can and some have paid taxes while many legal people don’t or at least try to get away with paying less. Donald Trump is said to have a tax issue.
