A Somalian arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the United States.
He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, “Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care and free education!”
The passer-by says, “You make mistake, I am Mexican.”
The man goes on and encounters another passer-by.
“Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America!”
The person says, “I no American, I Vietnamese.”
The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says, “Thank you for the wonderful America!”
That person puts up his hand and says, “I am from Middle East, I am not an American!”
He finally sees a nice lady and asks, “Are you an American?”
She says, “No, I am from Russia!”
Puzzled he asks her, “Where are all the Americans?”
The Russian lady checks her watch and says, “Probably at work!”
