Oscar Nominates Illegal Alien for Best Actor

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s a first: Oscar nominated an illegal alien. 

If you paid attention to the Academy Award nominations announced earlier this week, you might have noticed the name Demian Bichir among the Best Actor nominees.  Bichir came to this country illegally by his own admission and did the “hard work Americans just won’t do”:  he made guacamole.  He graduated to another such “hard work Americans just won’t do” profession:  acting, a line of work in which Hollywood has run out of eager participants/waiters/waitresses.  Oh, and he performed another “job Americans just won’t do”:  babydaddy to an out-of-wedlock kid.

If you don’t recognize Bichir’s name, he’s the Mexican (and part Lebanese Arab) actor who plays a drug kingpin/mayor in the HBO series, “Weeds.”  But his nomination is for his lead role in “A Better Life” (read my review), which falsely glorifies all illegal aliens as hard-working, decent, sympathetic people who just want to get buy and live the American dream like you and me (along with their spoiled brat anchor baby kids).  The movie also briefly portrays Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents as cold and heartless, even though under Barack Obama’s BS immigration policies, Bichir’s character would be left alone and allowed to stay here and illegally work and earn money.  The movie doesn’t show you a single one of the myriad of illegal aliens who murder, rape, steal, drink and drive . . . and plan Islamic terrorism.  And that’s why I knew it would be nominated for an Oscar in at least one category.

Upon getting the Oscar nomination, Bichir bragged about how he came to the United States illegally, stayed here illegally, and worked here illegally.  And, yet, we rubber-stamped his eventual citizenship request.  Why?  Good question.  Only Bichir can release his immigration records.  More:

The story struck a chord with the actor, who has been been acting in the USA for more than 25 years. When Bichir first arrived in New York (he was already well-known in Mexico at the time), he, too, had to make it as an undocumented worker for a year. “I started working at this restaurant where I learned to make guacamoles,” he says. “So I know what I’m talking about.”

He became a U.S. citizen seven years ago.

Bichir lives primarily in Los Angeles but keeps a home in Mexico City. He’ll next appear in Oliver Stone’s Savages.

Bichir became a father eight months ago to a girl named Gala, born out of a romance in Spain last year while he shot the film Ivan’s Dream. . . . He and the mother are no longer a couple.

Yup, exactly the kind of illegal aliens we need to give citizenship to: babydaddies who star in left-wing “Che” and Oliver Stone movies.

Awesome. Yo soy disgusted.

Making guacamole must be one of those essential skills Nobama says illegal immigrants do. Incidentally, I am sitting in an airplane for 45 f..king minutes here I’m Las Vega because they are waiting for king Obama’s plane to take off.

Only a phony would work on a phony TV series. “Weeds” is based on denial that ANYONE can get a license to smoke pot in California.

MexAmers celebrate their Fifth of May day with greater gusto than do they celebrate the Fourth of July. And many recognize States from Texas to California as integral to Mexico.

As for his arab background, jihadis have a political base in several Latin countries. Even Castro – photographed with Ahmadinejad last week – has recognized morisco influences in Hispanomerica. Its too bad that no US President or political leader has the smarts to work against the new alignment between Latins and arabs. If stupidity was a crime, Congress thingys would be in jail.

Its not like Congress is interested in introducing tighter controls on illegal immigration and giving ICE the necessary resources and tools to deter it.

Demian Bichir after is a beneficiary of our lax immigration system. He successfully gamed it and became a US citizen.

Who are we to deny the ultimate prize to illegals who aren’t Oscar nominees for Best Actor? In a word, the debate over whether to legislate another amnesty is a moot one.

After all, we don’t, despite all the heated rhetoric about it, care very much about securing our borders.

America has other concerns than dealing with the millions of illegals in its midst. And don’t hold your breath waiting for the latter to be addressed in the foreseeable future.

Another insult for legal immigrants. What a surprise. It seems that both American citizens and legal immigrants aren’t treated very well by many in Hollywood.

Would be interested in hearing more what you have to say about the Oscars.
I know you are focusing on something you dislike, but there is a positive–“In Darkness” looks like it has a good shot to win the foreign language category. It seems as if it is a combination of “Schindler’s List” and “Defiance”, which you liked. It is my prediction for Oscar.

Yeah, yo soy repugnante, tambien!

I wondered who the hell that a-hole was when I saw his name amongst the nominees. His stupid illegal alien story prolly endears him to the freaks in Hollywood. I hope he gets his future jobs taken away by an illegal alien.

He should go the eff back to Mexico and try to make that narco-state a better country. My dad was Mexican and DON’T believe the meme that most peeps of hispanic decent have a soft-spot for illegal aliens. We DON’T!

Get waaaaaay in the back of the line if you cheat and pay a stiff fine. What these cheaters don’t really tell you is that if one REALLY LOVES a country, they would NEVER enter illegally. NEVER!

And I do see sympathetic, hard-working illegals BUT they are still breaking our laws and they are more of the exception than the rule. Most I see are like Auntie Zeituni and Uncle Omar!!

Wow, he made guacamole for a whole year! I suspect that he did more than that if he was trying to support himself in New York City. Did it involved something like drug dealing perhaps? The man is glorified garbage.

With a name like Juan I am obviously hispanic,but honestly I don t know what goes on in different comunities by ethnicity,so until today I d never heard of this actor before,still don t have a clue who he is bc I usually don t watch the filth of HBO or like channels,I ve known illegal alliens and I may be insulted here but I ve seen them work hard and some have been abused,which is how I came to know them,in my experience,only my experience,I wouldn t say they are despicable,because some aren t,but some are,as far as the actor who made guacamole,that s another novela.

Froggy is obsessed with denying WW2 arab support for Hitler. Two years ago they put out a film about anti-Nazi arab-french soldiers during the war. Now they put an arab in the Resistance. Well, that could explain who ratted out Maquis members.

This is about art not politic you hateful bastards. If you would be interested in the jobs that illegal aliens do,then you would certainly get them before illegals. Employers choose to hire illegals because they are honest and work hard. There are good and bad people everywhere. If you had a bad encounter with one illegal alien, it does’n mean that they all are like that. Give the right to work to illegals ant i am sure that a lot of those illegal criminals would turn around.
