Should we say "illegal alien", "undocumented immigrant" or use a different phrase?

The language used in the discussion about immigration is important.

LAWBREAKING IMMIGRANTS is one phrase that can not be easily countered. There is no doubt that by coming here without obeying U.S. immigration law they are breaking U.S. law. Just because the law involved is civil rather than criminal does not remove the reality that a law was violated.  Cry

Allowing the word "immigrants" to be used only grants the liberals the desired ability to call them something other than aliens. Calling them "immigrants" is not to bad if lawbreaking is used with that word. The complete phrase "lawbreaking immigrants" is damning. Angry

Illegal alien was removed because they are not aliens. They are from this planet. Wink

Illegal immigrant is not to be used because no one is illegal.  Lips Sealed

Undocumented immigrant sounds like they lost some paperwork which is completely innocent.   Shocked

We must use the correct phraseology when talking about those who remain here by continually violating federal immigration laws. It does not matter if they never get a traffic ticket or commit any other crime. By continuing to violate federal immigration law this phrase fits. Use the proper words LAWBREAKING IMMIGRANTS against those why try to use the improper words "undocumented immigrant" against us. Cool

But "lawbreaking immigrant" could be a legal immigrant that broke some other law. I don't like calling them "immigrants" at all if they did not come here through legal channels.

Start saying that "immigration law breaking immigrants" are what you are talking about.

The point to make it that by violating immigration law all "undocumented immigrants" as called by the left are in fact currently lawbreakers.

I agree that using "immigrant" is not the best verbiage.

However, we are trying to find phrasing that the left will have a hard time defeating. Sometimes compromising on one distasteful word can win a larger battle.

My approach with this language is not for those who agree that illegal aliens are a serious problem. My approach in using this precise language is to give pause to those who refuse to accept illegal and alien.

Can you think of a better phrase to disarm the lefts arguments while not seriously infuriating the right???

Call 'em whatever you want. Hell, let's go back to calling them wetbacks if they come across our southern border. No matter what you call them, they illegally entered our country, and don't belong here...

What should we say? How about," If you don't have a legally certified green card or authenticated naturalization papers, get the hell out of the US and come back the right way!"

I have heard others use the term "invaders."

The language used in the discussion about illegals is only important to commie libs.  They aren't immigrants!  They are Aliens!  End of discussion.  To use any other verbiage is an attempt to be politically correct, or trying to spin/deflect!  Angry

They are not immigrants.They are not coming into this country under legal modes.No paperwork.No contact with our government at all.They are invaders from a foreign nation.Attacking our country in a slow methodical never ending line.They should all be put back into their country.Simply because we share land mass with their nation doesn't allow them free reign to come into our sovereign country, and take benefits from our citizens.I wouldn't call them illegal.I would call them " Invaders ".This is an attack from the countries south of our boarder.I am sorry for the plight of the citizens of foreign nations.But we cannot save the world.The citizens of the world must take control of their own countries, and change them for the better.Not come to ours and change them for the worse.
