But Oliver said he now accepts that under Donald Trumps presidency, there is a non-zero chance of it happening.
I have an American wife and an American son now, but who knows whats enough? Oliver said.Having a green card used to be enough, and yet what we saw with that executive order on immigration, that debacle, things are not what they were supposed to be.
Oliver, whose wife served as an Army medic in Iraq, also took issue with the treatment of Afghan and Iraqi translators held up at the border following Trumps executive order banned refugees and visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
The translators are people who have bled for a country theyve never visited, have sacrificed family members for this country, Oliver said.
Trump telling people whether they would benefit America or not was a little hard to swallow, he added, because the presidenthas done neither of those things.
Oliver made similar comments on Tuesdays broadcast of Dan Rathers America show on SiriusXM, when he labeled Trumps order as viscerally offensive.
