The leader of the CalExit campaign has defected to Russia; claims he could no longer tolerate America’s xenophobia and “anti-immigrant” bigotry.
Throughout this campaign, I have been primarily motivated by a personal struggle I have had with the United States government since 2012. That personal struggle revolved around the immigration status of my wife, a foreign national who I brought to the United States to live believing at the time that it was the best country in the world. For years, our marriage suffered as politicians in Washington argued and bickered about immigration reform while the American people expressed their anti-immigrant xenophobia.
Because, y’know, if Russia is known for anything, it’s for its welcoming attitude toward foreigners.
