Tila Tequila ignited a social media firestorm on Tuesday, June 7, 2016, by tweeting about having cowboy boots on to hunt illegals, just as the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (I.C.E.) confessed to letting criminal aliens slip back into their human shield “sanctuary cities.” Despite having committed burglary, larceny, and drug possession, these illegals were released by I.C.E. allegedly due to President Barack Obama’s immigration policy changes overriding police concerns.
Social media icon Tila Tequila known for her racy snapshots online, posted the following Instagram at 3:03 pm. on June 7, 2016.
“Ain’t nuthin better than riding around Texas in my cowboy boots to hunt down these damn illegals! #SendThemBack”
Leading the backlash against Tila was celebrity blogger Perez Hilton who reminded the Houston-raised star of a bisexual-themed dating show, of her own origins. On his blog, Perez said that perhaps Tequila forgot “she’s an immigrant seeing as how her real name is Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen,” and that she was born in Singapore after her family fled Vietnam during the war.
