[Ed. – Murphy has repeatedly made false claims about his bio, achievements, etc. He seems to be a weirdo, to the point of possibly being unbalanced. Another bizarre feature of a most bizarre election year.]
Florida Democratic Senate hopeful Patrick Murphy said in an interview this week that he “is an immigrant” even though he was born and raised in the United States.
“I’m an immigrant, we’re all basically immigrants here,” Murphy stated during an interview with Mexican-born Jorge Ramos, who is an immigrant and has U.S. citizenship.
The comment was first noted by BuzzFeed, which explains that Murphy is not an immigrant in any way.
“Murphy is not an immigrant,” writes BuzzFeed’s Christopher Massie. “According to the biography on his House website, he was ‘born and raised in Florida, spending most of his childhood along the South Florida coast.’”
Murphy’s comment came after Ramos asked him if he was “afraid” that Donald Trump might become president and Murphy said that he was “alarmed.”
