Living in the Bizarro United States, where illegal aliens cannot be called "criminals" (Video)

You know things are getting bad when the California courts are differentiating between "illegal" and "criminal."

In a court case in which the plaintiff couldn't appear because he couldn't cross the border from Mexico, San Diego Superior Court Judge Ronald Styn awarded Alberto Jimenez $2500 in "damages" resulting from his alleged defamation. At issue was an e-mail forwarded by San Diego Minutemen founder Jeff Schwilk in which he labeled Jimenez and six other illegals as "criminals" after an assault on a cameraman near a worker pick-up spot in 2006. The Minutemen were investigating a potential child prostitution ring that worked near a nearby migrant worker camp. Schwilk forwarded the pictures of the potential suspects, all of whom fled the scene, to law enforcement officials. The lawsuit, advanced and backed by "Hispanic advocacy group" La Raza, was filed in 2007.

The decision, handed down by the judge in the non-jury case, awarded Jimenez the settlement for the defamation of character caused by the forwarded e-mail, even though the plaintiff's lawyer continually made excuses for Jimenez's no-show.

Have we reached such a point of idiocy in this country--or at least in the California "justice" system--that we can't even call illegal aliens what they are? Is not the idea of criminality inherent in the fact that they are in the country against the law? La Raza's advocacy has long extended past the ranks of citizens, making one of its goals the declared amnesty of these crim... er, undocumented workers.

Our Congress, likely with heavy lobbying from groups like La Raza, will soon be debating a new bill to do just that: legalize the criminals whose ranks continually grow in California and other states across the Republic....

Criminal and illegal are Synonyms, that means they can be used interchangably in a sentence and still preserve the meaning. California has lost it’s mind.
