His quote "she got into Harvard and all that because she said she was a minority"

It's good to shift this from, "Did Trump get his facts 100% straight in regards to Warren's time at Harvard?" away from, "Did Warren misrepresent herself and did that play any role in her hiring at Harvard?"

Harvard says race played no role (though of course they would say that), and Warren states she is 1/32 (not enough that you can legally get one of those cards or whatever to prove it) that answer will likely never be known.

A $100 DNA test could easily prove whether she's 1/32 Indian. But we all know she's not, so she'll never take one.

And even then, claiming to be a minority because you're supposedly 1/32 anything is laughable.

Is this actually true? Is there an 'Indian DNA' that you can match against? (Wouldn't there be too many strains to test against?)

Were you in the US yet during the Clinton administration? The substance of the Dem rhetoric on illegal immigration wasn't far from what Trump is saying today, if not the style. Or am I missing the source of your confusion?

Check out the electoral map of Prop 187 in California. Even in 1994 CA wasn't a bastion of conservatism, and they overwhelming passed a law that would have kicked illegal kids out of public school among other things.

Proposition 187 included the following key elements: [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Proposition_187]

- All law enforcement agents who suspect that a person who has been arrested is in violation of immigration laws must investigate the detainee's immigration status, and if they find evidence of illegality they must report it to the attorney general of California, and to the federal Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). They must also notify the detainee of his or her apparent status as an alien.
- Local governments are prohibited from preventing or limiting the fulfillment of this requirement.
- If government agents suspect anyone applying for benefits of being illegal immigrants, the agents must report their suspicions in writing to the appropriate enforcement authorities.
- A person shall not receive any public social services until he or she has been verified as a United States citizen or as a lawfully admitted alien.
- A person shall not receive any health care services from a publicly funded health care facility until he or she meets the requirements above.
- A public elementary or secondary school shall not admit or permit the attendance of any child until he or she meets the requirements above.
- By 1996, each school district shall verify the legal status of each child enrolled within the district and the legal status of each parent or guardian of each child.
- A child who is in violation of the requirements above shall not continue to attend the school 90 days from the date of notice to the attorney general and INS.
- The attorney general must keep records on all such cases and make them available to any other government entity that wishes to inspect them.
- The manufacture, distribution, sale, or use of false citizenship or residency documents is a state felony punishable by imprisonment or fine.

Hell yes. 23andMe can pretty accurately tag admixture by European countries-- so I am guessing native american admixture would be close to 100% accurate.

That's pretty cool.

I don't know whether it really could prove that she was "1/32" Indian, but can they reliably detect a few percentage points of ancestry from another race in whites? Absolutely.

I'm not sure what the threshold is, but I've seen them claim confidence at 1/2% or above.

Yes, because the left is immune from using anecdotes to impugn the positions of the right.

I wonder how many gay people supporting Hillary have been beaten up far worse by non-gay people supporting Trump (whether it happened at a rally or not being pretty well irrelevant).  The fact that this got a Washington Post article, I assume, means that it's all equally weighted now.

Interesting he chose to mock being white and Asian but nothing else.

Remember when Hillary was against gay marriage or civil unions?
