Hawaii is the 50th State

That’s right.  It is part of the United States of America.  It received statehood on August 21, 1959.  You can learn more about it here.  People born in Hawaii are U.S. citizens.  I think we all learned this lesson when Sessions’s boss suggested that the former POTUS was not born in the United States.  Yes, it is a “little island in the Pacific,” but it is part of this country just like the other 49 states.

Someone please pass this information along to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  He was only twelve when Hawaii became a state.  Perhaps he doesn’t remember.

Here is what Sessions said today to talk radio personality Mark Levin.
SessionsIt is also worth noting that this judge, Derrick Watson, is a federal judge.  The 9th Circuit is part of the United States Court of Appeals.  We have a federal court system in the United States.  We are no longer living under the Articles of Confederation and the Confederacy lost the Civil War.

One thought on “Hawaii is the 50th State

  1. I was 11 when Hawaii was granted statehood…we had just studied States and Capitals for 49 States a few months before. Reconfiguring the American flag twice in the same year was a big deal…was front page stories in our Weekly Reader newspaper. The AG certainly must have memories of this totally extraordinary event!
