Are you an immigrant? Why (not)?

'Trump is right! Immigrants are to blame!'
-'What's the definition of 'immigrant'?'
'An immigrant is someone who is of foreign descent.'
-'So you are an immigrant?'
-'But you are from foreign descent?'

'Maybe so, but my ancestors and me worked really hard so we are true Americans.'
-'So foreigners who work hard are not called immigrants who steal American jobs but 'Americans'. Correct?'
'Yes, that's right.'
-'So what do you think of Slovenian women who come to America, don't work but simply marry a rich American man in stead of working for a living?'
'They are basically prostitutes who should be send back to where they come from!'
