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


Political correctness - undocumented immigrants.

Reality is illegal aliens, illegal foreigners, illegal invaders, criminals.

Not "dreamers" or whatever soft pedaling that goes on every day.

The USA has been the most generous country in history, and we would help people IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY.  They can tip our country right into the Third World.  Some, like BHO, cherish the idea of bringing us down to the LOWEST common denominator.

This allowing of foreigners into this country illegally, without regard to their impact on the citizens, culture, language, economy, our children, by temporary politicians has been a crime against every citizen.  And it needs to stop NOW or the country is lost.

By definition those invaders are immigrants although they can not be considered legal immigrants in any sense of that phrase.
   
Webster's Definition of immigrant: one that immigrates: such as a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence.
   
Webster's definition of immigrate: to enter and usually become established; especially :to come into a country of which one is not a native for permanent residence.

Like it or not the definitions for immigrants have been met.

I am very precise, or at least try to be precise when using language.

Quote:
They are not immigrants. They are not coming into this country under legal modes. This is an attack from the countries south of our border.


Those in the U.S. government have forgotten about the common man and his needs until election time comes along. Then they only tell us things they do not plan on doing just so they can get reelected.

Liberals work on emotion. Empathy is the reason behind most of the governments problems. Empathy overrides constitutions, rights, and decency. Empathy and out of control emotions are what this fight will be facing. Using words like illegal gets the response that "no one is illegal".

If you want to have a chance to change a liberals mind (assuming they have one) you have to use words they can not easily attack.

When you say "law breaking" the liberals will say these immigrants are law abiding. THEN you can say no, they are actively violating federal immigration law just be staying here. If you do not like that immigration law work to change it. Until then all immigrants must follow the law or no law should be followed.  It is all about approach.

How about Illegal Residents? or, for those of you who require specification, Illegal Residents from the Southern Border?
