immigration joke

this is a joke that was forwarded to me.... I am clueless as to who wrote it, but i found it funny any way... especially since "aliens" in the USA need to learn American history in order to get citizenship... enjoy!

It was the first day of school and a new student named Pedro Martinez,the son of a Mexican restaurateur, entered the fourth grade.The teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American history. "Who said 'Give me Liberty, or give me Death?' " She saw a sea of blankfaces, except for Pedro, who had his hand up."Johnny Kennedy, 1920.""Very good!" apprised the teacher. "Now, who said, "Government of thepeople, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth?"Again, no response except from Pedro: "Abraham Lincoln, 1863." The teacher snapped at the class, "Class, you should be ashamed! Pedro,who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do!" She heard a loud whisper: "Screw the Mexicans!" "Who said that?" shedemanded.Pedro put his hand up. "Jim Bowie, 1836."At that point, a student in the back said, "I'm gonna puke." The teacherglared and asked, "All right! Now, who said that?" Again, Pedro answered, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister,1991."Now furious, another student yelled, "Oh yeah? Suck this!"Pedro put his hand up and shouting to the teacher, "Bill Clinton toMonica Lewinsky, 1997!" Now, with almost a mob hysteria, the teacher said, "stupid idiot, sitdown. Pedro frantically yelled at the top of his voice, "Kenneth Kaundato a journalist, 1989. The teacher fainted, and as the class gathered around her on the floor,someone said, "Oh shit, we're in BIG trouble now!"Pedro whispered, "Saddam Hussein, 2003."
