Suspected drug dealer tells the Police someone stole his weed. ]
There was a guy in my work a few years ago who stole some computer equipment from the office, then came in the next day and complained (to a manager) that it was broken.

He actually looked surprised at being told he was being sacked.

Build The W... er...

A Trump winery in Virginia has applied to the U.S. Labor Department to hire 23 foreign workers, according to filed documents.

Trump businesses have hired 600 foreign workers since Donald Trump’s campaign for president, even as he railed about American jobs going to foreigners, according to BuzzFeed, which was the first to report the latest application. Trump operations have filed requests to hire more foreign workers each year since then.

CNN reported in 2016 that Trump businesses had employed at least 1,256 foreign workers in the previous 15 years, according to federal records.
The New York Times reported in 2016 that since 2010, only 17 of 300 American applicants were hired to work at Mar-a-Lago, the golf resort that Trump calls the “Winter White House.” Since 2010, Mar-a-Lago has obtained a total of 500 H-2B visas for seasonal non-agricultural foreign workers, according to The New Yorker.

The great Atlanta Paintball Wars of 2018 - rapper 21 Savage urged fans to start using paintball guns instead of real guns to reduce gun deaths, but it lead directly to the death of a small child...
And in another twist of ironic fate...it appears that 21 Savage (who writes about growing-up in Atlanta) may actually be....ever-so slightly British. Born in old London Town. And brought up there, until his teens. So maybe not quite the US southern roots he claimed.

Which may-well have provided exactly the same source rap material as Atlanta....but that doesn't appear to making much impression upon the US Immigration Department. He's under heavy investigation...reuters.com/article/us-people-21-savage-britain/birth-certificate-suggests-rapper-21-savage-was-born-in-london

Can't he be treated as a naturalised US Citizen, if he's been there since his early teens?

Lots of support for him from other artists though.
How does it work though, that he's not originally born in the southern states at all? Effectively he's identifying as being American. So is he channelling/empathing his doubly-displaced roots?

Plenty of common experiences, I'm sure, but there's still a massive difference between Tower Hamlets and Georgia
